Victorian Christmas (distressing optional) at Winter Wonderland and Guest DT card for OSAAT, meets various challenges

A very good Sunday afternoon, my dear friends, and a huge apology for the lateness off this post, I have been suffering so badly from the migraines, that my vision, went double yesterday, and the fatigue of my FMS, took hold, so I have just this minute finished my DT card for Winter Wonderland, which this weeks challenge was chosen by our Darling Pascale, who wants to see a Victorian Christmas with Optional distressing, there are so many variations of this theme, and our DT girls have made some awesome projects for you to look at and take inspirations from, I used a Digital Image, Tilly, which was free from Wendy, before xmas, and I think looks quite Victorian, I used Anna Griffin papers and embellishments, which just scream Victorian to me, don't you just love her goodies, I usually look at them, stroke them, and then put them away, this week I made an exception...We are being sponsored by Regina at Cutting Cafe, who is giving 3 digital files as a prize for this weeks challenge winner.  .I would like to thank everyone who took part in our DT call, and we have chosen our new Girls, to join our team, they are:-

It was so difficult to choose, as usual, and hopefully you will all pop over and give the new girls your support.

The top 3 for last weeks Sketch challenge are:-

  1. Mandy
  2. Babs
  3. Kathy
so please girls pop over and pick up your Top 3 badges and wear them on your blog with pride, Well Done...

I have used a sketch from Papertake Weekly SK36, and have added this card to Tellens Place - CH9 Green , and Pollycraft Challenges, WK35 who want Distressing (around the edges of the backing papers) I also want to add this to For Fun CHALLENGE, which is Green also.

Also here is the card for my Guest Spot at OSAAT CH4, which I won the other week, and was thrilled to be chosen, there challenge this week is a Recipe, off 1 Ribbon, 2 Brads/Eyelets and 2 Backing Papers, I love this wee cat image, and hope you girls do too, please pop over to OSAAT and join their challenge this week...and maybe you too can be a Guest in the weeks to come...

I am sorry for the longness off this post and please believe me when I say, that I would go on and on, if the head allowed....but suffice to say, that I wish you all a fantastic Sunday and hope all you Mothers out there are getting thoroughly spoiled....as you all so richly deserve.....much love and Happy Mothers Day, from Avril xxxx
