Christmas Tribute Challenge

Good morning.  Well we woke up on Monday and the snow had gone thank  goodness.  We did have snow flurries throughout the day but nothing to write home about and now it seems a distant memory.  Roll on spring.

It is time for a post at Winter Wonderland today.  If you are a regular follower of our challenge blog you may be aware that Eileen, our blog owner and co-ordinater, sadly died suddenly and unexpectedly last month. We are carrying on the blog as we feel she would want us to do so, and  this post is in tribute to Eileen.  Both design teams will be taking part. The theme is "Anything Christmas Goes."

My Card

6" square base card - from Hobbycraft Linen card stock
Merry Christmas die - Sue Wilson
Holly Sprays - Sue Wilson
Noble Pierced Squares - Sue Wilson
Holly Vine - Memory Box
Poinsettia - Marianne Designs
red gems - stash

I used the linen card stock for the base card and all the die cuts. My intention had been to leave it all white but then decided to add the holly berries.  A very easy card to put together but I think it looks effective. 

Our sponsor this time is L C Designs who are offering three digi images to the lucky winner.

Please pop over to the blog and see what the rest of the DT have come up with.  We would love you to join our challenge.

Take care.

    Glad the snow has melted there! I can’t wait for Spring now. I’m hoping some of my aches and pains will lessen with warmer weather.
