Winter wishes

Afternoon all - I've just spent a lovely day with the family at Fell Foot Park which is on Lake Windermere - the girls had a lovely time on the park and even tried out a climbing wall for the first time. It seems a million miles away from the Christmas theme of this card I've got to share with you this afternoon - but first of all - good news - I won a challenge over at Desmet designs - wohoooo! Brilliant!

I made this card using a round card blank from kanban cards. I've covered it with some paper from a 12x12" paper pack from the snowman - its got lights on it like the northern lights which I thought went well with the eskimo image I was using. The stamped image is one from LOTV - but its a very old one! I stamped and coloured it using promarkers and then added glitter on the eskimos fur hoods. I cut the image out using my new xcut dies that I won from the Creativity magazine  and added the hunkydory greeting and three flowers from my blossom and ribbon pack from Duck Pond Crafts.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Lili's Little Fairies: Anything goes:
Winter Wonderland: It takes two:

Thanks to all my wonderful followers out there for your warm and plentiful comments - long may they continue!
