Guest Designer - Winter Wonderland Challenge

I'm sure that by now you all know I love making Christmas I've been looking forward to today for ages. I was delighted to be asked to a guest designer for the Winter Wonderland Challenge back in July...and finally the first of my two weeks is here! :0)

The theme for this week's challenge is:

'Sleigh Bells Ring'

I just had to use this cute Penny Black stamp (from the 'Christmas Critters' set) the little hedgies look like they're having so much fun! Then, buried under a mountain of papers, I found an old DCWV Christmas stack that had some papers that were just perfect for the theme. The sentiment stamp is from a Studio G set...and I couldn't resist adding a few 'jingle bells' on a jump ring to the piece of ribbon (I've had them ages...but I think they came from Hobbycraft). The snowflakes were cut using a Cuttlebug die...and I added some doodled dots and faux stitching to finish off.

Make sure you stop by the Winter Wonderland Challenge to see the gorgeous creations by the design team...thanks girls for having me...looking forward to joining you next week too! :0)
