Winter Wonderland - No DP Challenge!

Good Friday morning all!

I hope you are all well - unfortunately I had a bit of an accident yesterday and I think I've broken my little toe!!  Aside from the swelling and bruising it's doing ok but it's a good reason to sit down and maybe get some crafting done!

Anyways, onto todays Winter Wonderland challenge which is hosted by me this week!  'No DP' is the challenge so it'll be a perfect chance to see those beautiful background stamps, embossing etc.  We're sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs and the winner will get to choose 4 digi stamps of their choice!  Unfortunately I wasn't able to use one of their images on my card as my printer has been having issues this week!!  But the rest of the DT have so please make sure you pop on over and check them out - they're super duper!

I've used a trusty Tilda (she was already inked and coloured in my stash) and I've followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday this week.  The background is embossed using a Sizzix plate.  The circle sentiment is from SU! and the snowflakes are an MS punch.

Well, I'm keeping it short and sweet today.  My eldest turns 12 tomorrow and he's very worried that my foot is not going to be better to do stuff with him so on that note I had better rest up and ice it again!!

Thanks for your visit today - it is hugely appreciated and I hope you're able to join in with our Winter Wonderland challenge this week!  Take care and thanks for any comments you may leave!

Hi Danielle,
This is a gorgeous card. I love the embossingand the colour. The snowflakes are fabulous and Tilda is so sweet.
I hope your toe is not too painful. It sounds very limiting. Take care.
