Sunday Challenge

It was my turn to set the challenge on Dottie's World today - or rather the world of Dottie, George, Holly, Madison, Girls about Town, lots of animals and... (shhh, come back Monday and you willl find out). That got you guessing I bet, and no, it's not our new stamps :-)

My challenge this week was:

CHRISTMAS! Yes really! The weather is getting warmer but lets not forget that cosy feeling we only get at Christmas. It's never too early to start preparing for the big day so this time I want to see a Christmas project, what you do is up to you as long as you include a Charmed download.

....and I am giving a prize to one of the entrants.

Here is my DT card:

I used "Karen" from the Girls about Town bundle, and Reindeer Dottie from the Christmas bundle (both from Charmed Cards & Crafts). I composed the background from various images and decorated with Snow Writer (it was almost empty so there's not as much as I wanted) and Glossy Accents. The lace is new in at Charmed Cards & Crafts (I love it!). Papers are from a mixed K&Co paper pad I had and the swirls are cut on my Silhouette from one of the papers. I used Copics to colour in the images. The sentiment was done on the computer.

Well I don't know about you but I could do with a mince pie and a glass of mulled wine now!!

Have a wonderful Sunday xxx

Karen that's gorgeous! I love how you've got Rudolf there with Kaern telling it to hurry up!(well that's what I imagine anyway)
The swirls look really pretty, they're a great touch. I had to come here to see it though, it seems to be missing from DW.

Oh this just reminds me of one of those old feel-good christmas films, with lots of lush snow and wonderful shop windows. Its so traditional, yet modern at the same time - love it. :)
