Winter Wonderland - For A Special Friend

Morning all, another Friday nearer to Christmas!  Crumbs, how quickly it will be upon us.  Welcome to another WINTER WONDERLAND challenge.  This week we are looking for cards for special friends so now is the time to start thinking of all those who mean a lot to you. 

Ideally, it would be nice if your card featured a sentiment that says special friend or someone special but we appreciate that not everyone will have those available.  A brief piece in your blog post about who your card is for and why they are special to you would be wonderful.

We are sponsored this week by Pollycraft Designs

who have a fantastic prize of 5 digis for the lucky winner, how great is that!

And here is my card - do pop over to visit the DT, they have made some gorgeous creations to inspire you.

Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped image:  Lili Of The Valley - Jenny Bear All Shopped Out
Papers:  Wild Rose Studio - Wintery Christmas
Sentiment:  Lili Of The Valley Christmas Circular Sentiments
Colouring Medium:  Distress Inks
Other:  Hobbycraft snowflake punch with Partners "cobweb" ivory satin embossed cardstock

I've made this for my very dear and special friend Rose who lives in New York.  We've been penpals for many years now and know each other's darkest secrets, which is why I guess we will be friends to the end - she knows too much now, lol!

So, we'd love to see what you create for your special friend and look forward to seeing all your wonderful challenge entries.

Hugs, Sxx
