Winter Wonderland

Hi folks,

Well the rain eventually went off yesterday and I got most of my ironing done in dribs and drabs but best of all we had a surprise last visit from my friend and her daughter who were heading back to Bahrain after being home for a few weeks.  I can't believe how quickly their holiday went in but it was lovely to see them and it will probably be around a year until we see them again.

I didn't manage to do any crafting last night :( and don't think I'll have any opportunity tonight :( :( as we have a friend's son staying for a sleepover as they have no childcare arrangements for the morning.  Iona is very excited about it so I doubt if there will be much sleeping going on!

Here's a quick wee card I made a couple of nights ago...

I don't often go for DL cards but I thought it would look good with the elongated topper.  The topper, papers and sentiment sticker are all Me To You Winter Wonderland and have been layered with matching Coredinations cardstock.  I've also used the same cardstock for the die cut snowflake which was made with a Die-sire set.  I've added a charm from Hobby House tied with American Crafts twine.  An organza ribbon bow, pearls and gems finish off my card.

I wish to enter my card into the following challenges:
