Winter Wonderland - Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly ....

I bet I have you singing the song now, don't I??  Don't worry, I was singing it to myself the whole time I was creating this card, LOL!!!

So I guess you know what the theme is at Winter Wonderland this week - yep, that's right - Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly and use lots of red and green in your project!  I've done another card that is fairly out of my usual style but I have to say I love the way it turned out.  I created a grid background which is this weeks challenge over at Stamptacular Sunday.  The gorgeous holly stamp and sentiment is from Inkadinkado.  The swirls are TH flourishes and die cut on gorgeous glitter cardstock.  I added the green rhinestones as a final touch of bling.

This week we're sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and you could be in for a chance to win a $15 shopping spree - now who wouldn't want that!  The rest of the DT have done some gorgeous projects to get the creative juices flowing.  And as a reminder, next week we're already beginning our first week of October - wow, those weeks sure are rolling in quick aren't they!  Hopefully you can pop over and join in with our challenge this week, we'd love to see you there!

Well, that's it from me.  I have a busy weekend ahead with cleaning, organising and getting prepped for the arrival of my family from Jersey (Channel Islands).  The boys are getting super excited that their nana & papa and uncle are arriving and have been counting down those sleeps!  I managed to clean up my craft room today to make room for my mom so we can get crafty together .... now that is something I can't wait to do!!

Thanks for your visit and I truly appreciate you have stopped by and taking the time to leave me a comment.  I love to read what you have to say and I will try and return the favour if time allows today.  I'm off to the doctor with Joel today to get the results of some blood work - hopefully it will give us some much needed answers!

Take care and enjoy your Friday!

Even though I am not even ready to THINK about Christmas, this card is so pretty. For some reason when I first saw it, parts of it reminded me of hand tooled leather with all the texture and detail. Really pretty! How fun that your family are coming to visit. And I do hope that the test results are good. Best, Curt

Hi Danielle!!! LOVE these colors. Christmas is so awesome. Fall too. :) And yes, I have gradually purchased copics and started to play with them. I still have a LONG way to go, but they are really fun. Anyway, I hope to post something soon. I guess we will see. I need to sit down and play a little more. Thanks so much for the awesome compliment you gave me on my coloring. I might add the pencils into the copic mix too... we will see. ;)
