Fussy and Fancy at Winter Wonderland

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.

I am starting to get just a wee bit excited now we are on the final countdown to the BIG DAY - can't wait to see what Santa puts in my stocking :o)

Still got loads to do - not helped by the last minute decision to get Jack's room redecorated - so this morning was spent looking for a new roller blind and curtains.

So without any further delay (as my post is a little later than usual) I would like to share my DT make for the new challenge over at 

and this week sees the start of our Non-Christmas makes - although you can still continue with them as well :o)

And the theme this week is


I needed a birthday card for a friend that has a Festive Birthday and here'e what I came up with:

Here's what I did:

Background embossed and then I rubbed Creative Expressions Vintage Rose Gilding Wax over the top.

A few new 'treats' have been used on the card :o)

Sue Wilson Stamp: Camellia Trellis
Memory Box: Madera Corner
Papertrey Ink: Birthday Die - cut 3 times and layered 
Glamour Dust, Alaphabet Stickers and Adhesive Pearls from stash 

We have some fabulous sponsors offering some amazing prizes this week:

£10 Voucher from the The Hobby House

£10 Voucher from Wild Orchid

£10 Voucher for Crafter's Companion
