Hiya, oooh I'm so sorry  everyone.  I've been spending some quality time with the children as they've been so upset that their dad still can't get home for weekend.  We're now expecting him next Friday so thats three weeks he'll have been away.  they're missing him so much bless them.  In concentrating on them I forget my CYDA post was incomplete and in draft - am soooo late now, sorry guys!
We're onto our final challenge for 2010 here at Craft Your Days Away and we're all  taking a break over the Christmas period so this challenge will run into the new year so plenty of time to enter.

Challenge #10 has been set by the wonderful Doreen and her challenge for you is....
 We want to see you using your punches and/or die-cutters for this one and here's my little creation............ 

The timing of this challenge was just perfect cos my new guilty pleasure is diecuts - guilty cos I've spent a small fortune on nesties in all lol, and pleasure cos I just can't get enough of experimenting with them.  

I used a 5x5 card for this and LOVED faffing with my nesties for this one.  The cardstock is from my stash and I used classic squares large, standard large circle and petite scallop circle large nesties along with my Spellbinders Pendants Shapeabilities "Fleur De Lis", all available from the Secret Crafter store HERE.  

The image is Christmas Wreath Pinecones digital image by Just Inklined Digi Stamps and available to purchase HERE.

I used my watercolour pencils to colour and bling from my stash.

We have a fabulous prize on offer for one lucky winner.  Please check out the challenge blog for details and if you have time please take a peek at the rather special creations my fabulous DT buddies have created to inspire you. 

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges

Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Anything goes
Little Red Wagon - Use a Die Cut
Stamp Something - Digi Day
Allsorts - Last Minute Christmas

I'm off to thaw out now as I bought the kids sleds each and we've had to test them out lol.  I didn't get to have a go, they had me pulling them along - am totally pooped now lol. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Take care and keep warm - I'll be parked in front of the fire and the telly later for the X Factor Final.
