Winter Wonderland Challenge - A sketch & Baby's 1st Christmas!

Hi there!
Sorry for the lack of posts the past couple of days - life has been a little emotional trying to deal with my oldest son and friendship troubles! Geez, I thought it was only girls who went through that stuff! Thankfully, after lots of chats and prayers, he is one relieved and happy boy again, phew!

So, today I have my DT card for the Winter Wonderland challenge. This week the lovely Anne has given us this fabulous sketch to play with using the theme 'Baby's 1st Christmas'. Mmm, had to dive into some unused and forgotten Alota stamps that I had in my stash. I thought this cute train would be perfect. Then I found this lovely green & red plaid paper in a christmas stack of papers. I coloured the image with Distress Inks. Corner embellishments, dew drops and ribbon (bow made with the bow-easy tool) are from stash and I computer generated the sentiment as I didn't have anything remotely appropriate in my stamps!

I hope you like it and are able to pop over to Winter Wonderland and check out the fabulous work by the other DT gals! And come and join us, you'll have another christmas card marked off your list!
