Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog - June Challenge - Christmas Decorations and a Design Team Call

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How has your week been? There is a lot going on in the world out there. We haven't really changed what we are doing. Though this weekend we are going to see the house that our daughter and son-in-law are in the process of buying. We will be outside at all times and at a safe distance of course. It will be nice to see the house. Everything is progressing well with their move. 

The new challenge starts today at the the Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog and the theme is Christmas Decorations. The sponsor of the challenge is the fantastic Beccy Muir from Beccy's Place.  We are also having a Design Team call details are on the blog. 

I have a close association with Beccy being one of her blog contributors. This meant that I had a few images that I could use on my card. The trouble was they were all so lovely it was hard to choose. 


I found a gift bag which had a fantastic pattern on it. I cut it up and used this for the mat behind the image. I added a tartan and gold ribbon as well. 


There are so many wonderful images and word sets in the store. Click on the logo and you will be taken there.


This is the Golden Bell Digital image set and it is available HERE.  I used the precoloured image and a sentiment that came with the set. I placed them onto a background I had made on the computer. I cut the image and it's mats with the Double Pierced Square dies from Creative Expressions. 


I have made 60 Christmas cards now. That is not bad when we are nearly half way through the year. I wonder how things will be when we get to Christmas. 

I would like to enter the following challenges: 

I hope you have a good weekend.

Super card Jackie. The image is ideal for Christmas. We are not changing our habits just yet. My husband has health problems and although I am healthy and could probably meet a few more people I would be too scared in case I brought back the virus. I'm not finding lock down difficult at all. Maybe I'm naturally anti social ... lol! Take care. Christine xx

Lovely card Jackie. Whilst sorting out some craft stuff yesterday I found quite a few Christmas cards I had made and not used so they will be used this year. Enjoy your weekend. I am not going out yet.bit concerned it will come back again and all the self isolating will be for nothing so staying home.

Some fabulous makes this week JACKIE
Earlier you asked if we’re doing anything different The only thing we’ve done is visit our daughter and grandchildren It was lovely but I was longing to give them all a great big hug
I also had tea on the lawn with some of my neighbours
I am exceptionally worried about going any further as I’m shielding a bit too I do hope there isn’t another spike
Take care all x
