Deep Ocean Challenge DT Card and DT Call

Hello everyone how are you all?
Well its time for a new challenge over at Deep Ocean & this fortnight thew theme is.....
WINTER DREAMS it could be a christmas card or a winter birthday card. If you want another idea you could also make winter thank you cards for those lovely christmas pressies you got ;0)
I decided to do a Christmas Card, I'm determined to be super organised this christmas.....fingers crossed lol.
So I've made this into a shabby chic kinda crimbo card ;-)

I have added gorgeous lace from LLC, its called 'Lace Constance' & its yummy scrummy ;0) I added a strip of corrugated card across the the middle which has had the 'Snowtex' treatment.

The paper I've used is Pion 'Church 12x12' & I've used both sides. I've distressed the edges, inked them & machine sewn them as well.
These are now discontinued so grab them at Live & Love Crafts while you can.
So I've added Marianne Doily die & covered it with snowtex. The silky ribbon is from my stash, as is the button in the centre. The white bells are actually from the christmas crackers we had this year, just added a wee bit of Gesso to them for texture.

The flowers are from LLC. The postcard is from Maja Design Vintage Frost Basics 'Christmas Diecuts'.

The image is from Maja Design A Gift For You 6x6 pad. The window is a Marianne die, the tree & fence are Magnolia Doo-Hickey dies. The sentiment tag is of course LOTV.

Ok well thats it for me I'm writing this post whilst cooking a herby chicken dinner, I've invited hubsters brother over for tea today. So it will be scheduled.

Oooh I nearly forgot, we have a DT Call over at Deep Ocean Challenges, so if you would like to join our team pop on over to see the details. I have to say personally that these ladies & gentleman are awesome to work with & so em to bits ;0)

Thanks so much for stopping by lovelies, take care.
Big hugs Vicky xxxxxxxxx

Yesterday it snowed here...very unpleasant as I was out running, and last weekend when we visited my family in Sweden we landed in a snowstorm. I like snow, but not so here in the UK, it causes to much chaos. Anywho; beautiful card - like a winter fairytale.
