Winter Wonderland - All I want for Christmas!


So glad you could stop by today!  I have my DT card for this weeks Winter Wonderland challenge which is hosted by my lovely teamie Kate.   She has given us the challenge 'All I want for Christmas' - what a fabulous theme which can be interpreted in so many ways!

I decided to pull out one of my Tildas which I haven't played with in a while.  I also saw that the Simon Says challenge this week is Paper Piecing so decided to add that into my card too.  All my papers are BG Wassail which I just love.    I paper pieced Tilda's dress, her bow and the two parcels.  The rest of Tilda is coloured with copic markers.  I added a doily from my stash and a glittery (I promise, it is glittery - it just doesn't show up in the pic) Tim Holtz flourish.  I also managed to get my hands on a book of Tim Holtz's ticket sentiments recently - just couldn't resist those!

We are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps this week so hope you're able to stop by and join in with the festive fun!  We now are officially under 4 months away 'til Christmas .... are you getting your cards ready??  The rest of the DT girls have come up with some splendid inspiration for this challenge so if your christmas mojo is not quite there yet, be sure to check them out!

I will enter this card into the following challenges:-

Stamp with Fun - Card for a girl
Creative Card Crew - Sparkle & Shine
SirStampalot Challenge - Bring on the Bling
Creative Inspirations Challenge - Christmas in August
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Two's better than one (use 2 stamped images)

Thanks again for your visit here today - I love having you stop by and I really appreciate every comment that is left!  I wish you all a wonderful start to the weekend and hope the sun shines where you are!
