One designer paper only

Morning everyone! Just a quick drop by to tell that our new theme over at the Winter Wonderland is "one designer paper only". That meas you can only use one dp, but there are cardstock to use, embossing, etc. I will continue writing this post a little later on as my pain is really horrible at the moment but I still wanted you do see that we're up and going with our challenge and I even managed to finish my card with a little help from my kids. :)

The prize is a choice of 2 digi images. And here's a little bit of info about our sponsor.

Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters,  in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends.  I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.
I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.
Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .
All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping.  The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.
We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies .The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.

We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.

This is yet another card made with left over pieces from my scrap boxes. So many papers so little time. :) Well, and when we have challenges like this I get the chance to use up some of the bigger pieces which is nice to. This one comes from Maja design and I think that it is from the collection called Sofiero. I have used a few die cut corners from white cardstock, a bird die cut that I think I got from dies to die from when I bougth something there. There is also a very thin piece of lace that I got from Gail my blogging buddy in the USA. A mix of flowers from different companies. Some of it is covered with lose glitter. Well, I guess when you want only a little to stick, be prepared that most of it will stay on and the other way around. LoL Anyway, I am really glad that I managed to finish the card and get it up here as I am in so much pain that I don't really know what to do. It's hard not to use my hands as al my hobbies involves using them. Giving the new med a few more days, and I will hopefully be feeling a bit better and I might even give the hands enought rest to let them heal. I only need to find a bunch of good movies I guess and then stand down. Lucky for me there is still a few games of handball left to watch in the world Cup. 

Thanks to mum for helping my typ both my school work and my blogposts this week. I didn't know that it was so good to have my own secretary. LoL

Love n hugs
