I'm back again,I said I was going to make the most of my week off! It's time for my second DT card of the week,this card is for Southern Girls where the latest challenge is "Mid winter Christmas"  obviously in England things are a little different it might feel like winter some days but in reality it's getting towards summer. So anyway,Challenge 20 is to make a Christmas project,it doesn't have to be a card! I used my Tilda,coloured her using Copics and embossed the background using a Cuttlebug snowflake folder. (I'm going to share a little secret,my first attempt was horrendous, Tilda looked like she'd got trapped under a sun lamp,I'm not feeling brave enough to share the results but my fellow teamies have had a good giggle! The amazing sponsors for this challenge are....... wait for it,you best sit down..........For New Zealand and Australia,LOTV and Joanna Sheen and the International sponsors are The Beary Scrap!!!
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Corrosive Challenge 118,Oh Christmas Tree, 
Dream Valley8,Stamp something,
CUYL 44, Recycle,(chocolate box ribbon) 
Crafty Emma 38,Embossing,
CHNC 22,Use Ribbon. 
That's it from me for today,
Thanks for stopping by,
