Having a Whimsical Winter

Good Morning,

Due to my lovely shoulder issues I am so late in posting my card for the Winter Wonderland Challenge but as we are on our Summer break at the Challenge I'm still in time :-)

Right our theme for the month is:

Show us your Gold/Silver and or Use an embossed background
A theme that gives you so much scope you might even make two.
 Please remember Christmas projects only.  This is our last challenge until  26th August so it gives  you plenty of time to decide what you want to do.  We are restricting the number of submissions to 3 per person. 
We have three fabulous sponsors this week so 3 random prizes waiting to be claimed.

are offering a £8 voucher to use in store

I have used the gorgeous Whimsical Winter from Crafts & Me & have coloured her up using my Copic Markers. This took me an age to colour as my hand kept going numb, very frustrating when you just want to get on & finish an image.

The papers are from Michelle R Designs Winter Frost 6 x 6 paper collection. I have distressed the edges using a Tim Holtz tool & have added some Walnut Stain.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have finally bought a Bow Easy to make bows & I really don't know why I haven't had one before they are super & I just want to put bows on everything now.

Thank you for stopping by & make sure you pop over to the Winter Wonderland Challenge to see all the gorgeous creations from the rest of the Team & join is as you have nearly a month this time & as they say in Game of Thrones 'Winter is Coming' so come on & start those Christmas projects.

Right well I hope everyone has a fab day
