Another Christmas Card & Some Exciting News!

 
I hope you're all having a great weekend, don't they go quickly though (probably cos I had to work yesterday morning).  My news is that I was chosen for the Sentimental Sundays DT & I am really chuffed!  I love Ann's sentiments & the DT girls are all really friendly :)  If you haven't checked the challenge blog before you just need to follow the theme of the week & use a sentiment (every week there are fab new sentiments to download free too!).  This week's challenge is a fab sketch by DT member Dorcas, I love sketches and really enjoyed using this one.  The cute image I used is called "Cuddle Christmas" from Di's Digi Downloads which I coloured with ProMarkes & Stickles, the papers are from Designer Digitals (I think), the sentiment is from a set called "Trimming the Tree" & is available from Whimsy Stamps.  I finished the card off with a flower made using a stencil, die cut Christmas trees & some gems.  If your looking for more inspiration why not check out the other DT members blogs.
