Walking in a Winter Wonderland with Christina!

This week Tickled Pink Stamps is sponsoring Winter Wonderland Challenges where the theme is Christmas - but with the twist to use your a sentiment as your focal point.

Wow, Christmas. Hmm, I'm not ready to think about that yet. Last year I started to make my Christmas cards at the start of the year. But this year it hasnt interested me in the slightest. Part of the reasoning is I'm waiting for the yummy new Christmas products to be released! So, to tell the truth this challenge really stumped me. And also to have the sentiment as the focal point - how is that possible with an image? I know I've seen cards in the past that have the image as a watermark so I tried to do something like that here. I love vintage Christmas cards so I went back to my roots with the vintage look and printed the image on kraft paper then just cut it out and didnt colour it. Perhaps not my favourite card but I think it works. And, do you recognise the ribbon and bell? Its from a Lindt Easter Bunny - pretty dont you think!

Lovely card! And when I see those girls putting up the tree I feel like getting ready myself! I might just have a peek into my boxed with Christmas decorations... nothing wrong with that, is there?
