DT CARD Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #113

Hiya everyone, hope you are all keeping well and coping with this awful wintery weather, looks like we have a short break from the sub zero temps for a few days before it all moves in again, don't know about everyone else but I can't wait for all the snow and ice to go away for good!  I'm booking spring to start 1st January hahahhaaha.
I have a lovely weekend planned with the children.  They are so upset their dad hasn't been able to home for the last two weekends.  They have even put off putting the Christmas Tree up until he's home!!!  Bless 'em.   So today I'm taking them over to North Lincolnshire to cheer them up.  They're wanting to look at Christmas Decorations and maybe choose a few for their room, so we have a date with Brigg Garden Centre.  We're also making buns and attempting our very own Christmas Crackers too which I'm so looking forward to. 
**************************
My lovely DT buddy Tracie has a brilliant challenge for us over on the Secret Crafter Saturday.  It's just the ticket if you need your spirits lifting from our cold weather!! 




Being a colour challenge, you can let your imagination run wild - you don't even have to make it a Christmas Card........
 
This was a perfect opportunity for me to play with a new LOTV stamp and a PB sentiment I've had my eye on for as long as I can remember!
these gorgeous BG papers "Lemonade", available from Wendy's Secret Crafter Store HERE.  I think I'll be getting another of these packs!

I used my trusty nesties to mat the image along with copics and promarkers,  all available from the STORE.  The flowers, ribbon and cardstock is from my stash.

We'd love to see you play along, can't wait to see what you come up with.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges.....

Cute Card Thursday - Floral Frenzy 
Crafty Emma's Challenge - Anything but a Christmas Card


I'm off for a brew now and then getting ready for our day out.  I hope the roads are ok, I think its supposed to be relatively warm today.

Thanks for stopping by, wrap up warm if you're venturing out and take care.
