Winter Wonderland

Hi Folks and thanks for popping by my blog today.
A day of mixed emotions for me today as it is my last day at work.  I made the decision a few months ago to take voluntary severance after 31 years.  It was a difficult decision to make but I felt that it was the right thing for me.  I will miss my work colleagues but not the work and the environment.  I am now looking forward to the new challenges ahead.

On a brighter note today sees the start of a new challenge over at Winter Wonderland.  Our theme for this week is:
A Christmas Choir
(use an image of a singer/singers)

Here is my inspiration project using a Forever Friends topper.

I used silver mirror card for all the matting and the papers were oddments in my christmas paper stash.  For embellishments I used some mini poinsettias, ribbons and sparkly gems.  

We have two great sponsors for the Winter Wonderland challenge this week:

Prize of a £10 voucher to the winner

Prize of 3 digi images to the winner

Just pop over to Winter Wonderland to upload your entry and check out the challenge rules.  You will also find more super inspiration from my talented teamies.  I am looking forward to seeing all your entries.

A Creative Romance - Anything goes
