Winter Wonderland Challenges

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  Thank you for all your kind comments and congratulations about my new job which I start on Monday.  I did intend being a lady of leisure for a bit longer but when opportunities arise you have to take them.  I think I will feel a bit like a new girl at school.  After all, I was at my old job for 31 years so a new experience for me lol.

Now onto crafty matters.  Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Winter Wonderland.  Our theme for this week is:
Gingham or Checks
You can create anything you like as long as it is christmas themed and fits the challenge theme.

Here is my inspiration project.

I used a pre coloured image from one of our sponsors, The Paper Shelter for my project.  I simply added some liquid pearls around the image.  The papers and sentiment were in my stash and all the matting was done onto kraft card.  I added a ribbon bow and a star/snowflake embellishment to finish the card.

We have two sponsors for the challenge this week.

Prize $20 gift cerficate

Prize £10 gift certificate

Just pop over to Winter Wonderland to check out the full challenge details and enter the challenge.  Don't forget to check out the lovely inspiration from my talented teamies.
