Guest Designer - Whooo Hoooo

Good morning everyone.  Ooh I'm so excited today!!!!  I invited by the ladies at Your Next Stamp Challenge to be a Guest Designer for them for their challenge today - Whoo Hooo.

Of course I said YEESSSSSSSS!!! lol.   The YNS store has an incredible range fabulous, gorgeous stamps which are just soo adorable!!

Their theme this time on the challenge blog this week is

"It's a Clean and Simple Christmas"

 I've used one of the new Christmas images, Tobogganing Ellie, very appropriate for the recent heavy snow we've had in the UK lately.

I've been playing with my diecuts again, my current addiction - I just can't stop experimenting with them!! I spellbinder large circle nesties to make the frame with scallop circle and spellbinders flourishes to make the decorative detail - ok - maybe it was not so simple to do but I love the result.  I coloured with copics and promarkers, added glitter and a bit of bling.  I used a cuttlebug Ironworks embossing border at the bottom of the card.

You don't have to use a YNS image to join in the fun but of course it would be wonderful if you could, we'd love to see what you can create.  YNS Challenges usually run for a fortnight but this time its only running for ONE WEEK.

I'm off to shovel more snow snow before I collect my eldery MIL who's been finding the weather particularly tough - and lonely, as my BIL who lives with her is currently working away til the weekend.  She'll be staying with us until he returns hope so we're quite looking forward to spoiling her a little!!

Thanks for stopping by.
