Winter Wonderland

Good Morning Everyone, 
Thank you for all your birthday wishes yesterday and for the lovely cards and gifts. I had a lovely day and was spoilt rotten! I got some lovely new crafty stash and some birthday money that I might just save for the GNPE at Harrogate in October!
Anyway onto today's challenge. We have a new one starting at Winter Wonderland today and this week our theme is...
                                         HOW CHARMING
I've used a gorgeous stamp from Lili of the Valley called 'A Christmas Carol'
I've coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers, and added lots of glitter.  The background papers are First Edition - Silent Night.
I've used a Spellbinders poinsettia die, a marianne Creatables Ivy die, A MB precious Snowflakes die. The gorgeous pom pom braid is from The Ribbon Girl and the ribbon and pearls and snowflake charm are from my stash.

This week we are sponsored by Crafter's Companion who are offering a £10 voucher to one lucky winner.



I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Sparkles Christmas Challenge - Charmed I'm Sure
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge - Cute
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
LOTV Ideas to Inspire - Make it Festive

Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog today and for all your lovely comments.

Beautiful card Lorraine, love your colours and design and interestingly, your little image is a girl, when I did mine I just automatically thought it was a boy and used boy's colours, but I guess the clue could be in the name "Carol", kATE X
