December Birthday at MAWTT

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you are having a wonderful week so far.
It's pretty cold here in Gloucestershire today - but not cold enough for snow :o)

I am hoping to make a start on 'covering the house in Christmas' - those that have been following me and reading my blog posts for the past few years will know that is what Jack once described it when he was very small and it has sort of stuck now :o)

But before I get going with that I would like to share my DT make for the new challenge over at 

and the theme this week was just perfect for me as my Sister will be celebrating her 50th birthday on Boxing Day:


So here's what I did:

Colouring Medium: Copics
Design Papers: LOTV 'Woodland Wishes'
