Good morning friends!
We have a new challenge for you this fortnight at ABC Christmas challenge and Wilma is our host this time

But first ...

I/we have some really great news about our new DT members.
we were so thrilled so many of you applied and we have chosen some new teamies so when you have finished here please run over to ABC Christmas and join us in welcoming them! and see what awesome makes they have made for their debut! 

Oh and I have been pretty busy giving the blog a makeover! 


So then this fortnights challenge is B

B for Bows or Boys.

Our sponsor's are: 

For my card I have used this oh so cute Santa from Bugaboo - Tropical Santa Surfing I have kept the card very Clean & Simple.

not a lot to tell other than I have used distress inks and I have done a lot of sewing too!
the papers are Bo Bunny and I have added some twine and the sentiment is made up from alpha stamps.

Here are some challenges I am playing with this card:

LEJ Designs Stitching Real Or Faux = Real
Ribbon Carousel Challenge - Winter Spirit - twine
Try It On Tuesday - Let's Get Stitchy Real Or Faux - Real
Craft Your Passion - Teal as Main Color
Digi Makeover Challenge - Warm Thoughts

Have a great Wednesday and don't forget to come say hi and join in at ABC Christmas and please leave a lovely comment for the new teamies too!
