winter wonderland...

Good morning everyone...did you all have a fabulous weekend I hope so and what did you think about my candy...lush isn't it, I have been bursting to tell you about it but had to wait, but I hope you like it and will join in...we had a lovely weekend, Sunday lunch was fabulously yummy of course as Phil makes it and then we all went for a mooch around the shops together...since our Daughter moved out I miss those kinds of days but it makes them even more special when they happen...I even got some more Christmas presents so the list is going down fast...I have been sneezing and coughing for the last two days so I said to Phil, I think I caught your cold, he says...the only virus you have is a computer virus...cheek lol...ooohhhhh I do love a witty man, couldn't eat a whole one though lol...right onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts monthly challenge and this month is our fabulous Marie-Theresa's turn to choose and she has chosen Anything Christmas with pearls...I used this gorgeous little Edwin on Christmas Eve from the Sweet Christmas collection, when I first looked at this stamp I thought Edwin was a strange shape until I stamped it and realised hes walking downhill and that's why his legs are like that, that made much more sense...I coloured Edwin with distress inks

I added some of the 3mm pearls mixed bag as snowdrops too...the lush fabulously yummy letter paper is from the Sweet Christmas 12x12 paper collection and called Christmas Letter, I cute a few of the letters from the paper and used more pearls for the berries on it...I finished with some ribbon and I decided to use some of the paper to decorate the inside too, everything except the ribbons are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I'm entering this for the DYSU Inspired by a Song challenge (I chose Winter Wonderland, you know the one that goes 'Walking in a Winter wonderland') I'm also entering it for the Christmas Stampin' all year round challenge (I haven't used the Edwin stamp before) and the Crafty Calender challenge too...I cant wait to see what you come up with for our challenge and when you have time you could hop on over to Bunny Zoe's Crafts blog to check out the rest of the teams amazing makes...I'm finishing a project today, one you will see on Thursday...whatever your up to have a fab day and don't forget if you haven't joined in my candy yet pop on down now as you never know do you

Mornin' Mina, lovely card...the 3d letters really add even more interest to an already brilliant card. Great colours and such a cute image. Would have liked to join in the fun with the candy time but I don't understand how to leave my details...this http stuff is confusing to a technophobe.
