It's a Stitch Up

Sadly this is going to be my final challenge with Winter Wonderland - we have my Mum moving in with us soon and my crafting time will be considerably reduced. I hope to still make lots of cards but I don't want the pressure of DT deadlines. I would like to say a huge thank you to the Winter Wonderland team for letting me play along with them and for their support and friendship.

 The theme this week is:

It's a Stitch Up (Real or Faux Stitching)

Don't forget you have to make a Christmas card to enter our challenge,

I have used the fabulous 'The Most Adorable Snowmen' image from The Paper Shelter who are our sponsor this week.

I cut my pre-coloured image out with a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Square die (that is my stitched element) and used the papers that come with the image.

The sentiment is from my stash and the snowflake is two Simon Says Stamp Snowflake die cuts glittered and layered up.

This week we are sponsored by:

The Paper Shelter who are offering the winner a $15 gift certificate.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Inspiration Destination Challenge 29 - Always Anything Goes
Natalie and Amy's Challenge 31 - Frame It!
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge 89 ~ Use A Die Cut
WordArt Wednesdays Challenge 179 - A Family Friendly Challenge For ALL

Make sure you pop over to the Winter Wonderland Challenge blog and take a look at the fabulous DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our It's a Stitch Up challenge.

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in.
