Red & White Stripes



Happy Sunday peeps! That can only mean one thing - a brand new challenge over at Winter Wonderland, and if you've found yourself here, you've probably been sent to me by my gorgeous buddy Pascale. We have a a fab theme of Red and White Candy Stripes this week, and some very generous sponsors. One of my most favourite digi artists, Christine from The Sketching Stamper has very generously offered 4 of her amazing digi images ton one lucky player as a prize - trust me, they are outstanding!


And Nikki from Bunny Zoes has very kindly donated this gorgeous stamp
some charms

and these gorgeous glittery pearls, again to one lucky player


and I'm feeling generous, I have TWO of these gorgeous Rubber Stampede card and tag making sets to give away, so I shall be selecting two winners from those who leave feedback on my blog this week.



To qualify for any of the prizes on offer on the DT Blogs and for the prizes on offer from our sponsors, you have to leave a comment for each Dt member on their Candy Cane Post, and Join the Challenge this week. Very importantly though, your card or project can ONLY be for this challenge - combining with other blog challenges will disqualify you from the chance of winning a prize. You don't have to use Candy Canes but a theme of Red and White is a must :O) We hope you decide to join in with the fun!!!




Here is a card that I made using one of Christine's fabulous images - if you're lucky enough, you too could be the proud owner of this. I can tell you, there was something very therapeutic about making this very simple card and every time I look at it, it reminds me of a Victorian Fairground stall!



I'd like to thank you for stopping by here but now I'm going to send you over to my lovely and very talented friend Teri who's waiting by her blog to show you her stunning creations - prepare to feast your eyes.........

Have fun hopping around our blogs, and if you can, please join in - it would be really lovely to see lots of our old friends joining in again, and to welcome new friends and players! :o) xx

  24. Honestly, I'm not quite sure how I got here; surely it's an Act of a loving and merciful God. That, or dementia, as I DO tend to wander hither and yon through the Kingdom of Blog.

    I'm truly insane now, Anne! Have you noticed?!? LOLOL!

    LOVE your beautiful card ... very elegant! And I love that wreath and the way you've colored it. It has such depth, Anne! It almost looks like it's coated with Crystal Lacquer ... but perhaps that's just a(nother) hallucination. Plus I DID whack my head quite severely recently ...

    ANNE, stop it! There's something about you that makes me act bonkers! It is quite freeing though ... lolol! You bring out the crazy in me for some unknown reason. But I loves, Kiddo, I truly do!!!

    Stay warm!!

    ~Giant Bear Hugs, Deb

    PS: What! You took down your portrait?!?!? I love that thing ... it was my first look at you and I adored you from that second on!! Please consider putting it back.

  29. Awww, it's still as lovely as I remember! An amazingly spiritual representation ... truly transcendent.

    And, I might add, the hair color is spot-on perfect. Frankly, I'd recognize that smile anywhere, Anne!

    Thank you ... this really is a special treat*!
