Christmas In June with the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and 3 Winners

Good morning to you all in  the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at the

the theme this week is 

Christmas In June

so here is my inspirational piece,  however do please hop on over to the main challenge site to see lots more gorgeous inspiration.

Of course I made a Christmas Card :)

Base colour and main papers are Milton Christmas Papers by Wild Rose Studio
Image is Mia With Cracker by Wild Rose Studio
The sentiment is from the set Christmas Circles by Wild Rose Studio
pearls and rose from stash.  The new holly flourish was a holiday treat for me :) 

Here is  a close up of Mia with her Polar Ice flower soft, fluffy bits, she has been coloured in copics.

A quick hello to my new followers and I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers for the lovely and inspirational comments you leave, which allows me to hop on over in return to see your own lovely work.

from last weeks challenge where I said I would give away a reel of 
3M Scotch 24 Electrical Shielding Tape
had quite a few interesting ideas in the comments and I let my hubby choose and he chose

who said
"Can you use for background net for ivy, or for a birdcage, or a big bow for a present on a Christmas card :)"
 A little spider web:)
And another,I thought yesterday evening,a little fence for sheeps:)

who said
"Seeing the tape in sliver I would be tempted to use it on Christmas cards instead of ribbon on some."

who said
 "l had already seen your tutorial which was brilliant a great net for your card just amazing what can be made with it l think you could just use it for just about anything it's one of those items that will come in handy anywhere and any time"

Congratulations ladies if you would like to mail me your snail mail details, I will get these in the post to you.
