ABC Christmas Challenge - W - Winter Wonderland (+ White) (DT)

Hello all, and welcome to another fabulous challenge with ABC CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE!  You guys were loving Samantha's sketches for the V challenge - don't forget to check back to the blog to see who the winners are.

Now, W for Winter Wonderland sounds quite harmless doesn't it?  Yeah, and then a certain teamie throws in the optional extra of White.  Ha!  I cannot possible repeat in polite company the words I used, and I've had confessions from other teamies that I was not alone.  Having said that, the team have totally rocked this challenge - just check out those fabulous DT cards!

And I must say a big warm welcome to our three new DT members who join us for their first challenge - that's Delphine, Dorte and Carissa - and to our two guest DTs - Paula and Tanja.

We are sponsored this time by SIMON SAYS STAMP so what more encouragement do you need?  Get crafting!

I've made two cards for this one - the first with the White option and the second without:

For the first card I've relied heavily on my Cuttlebug folders and some white hammered card for embossing the dots and stripes.  The snowman is Dapper Dan from High Hopes.  Ribbon from stash, Card Candy from Craftwork Cards.  Sentiment is Personal Impressions.

The second card uses cute little Lili Of The Valley penguins and loads of Glamour Dust.  Papers are Papermania and Co'ordinations Cardstock and a peeloff from stash.  Martha Stewart snowflake punch.

Both very clean and simple.

Looking forward to seeing all your creations!

Hugs, Squirrel xx
