winter wonderland and some news

Good morning all! Great to be with you - and thanks in advance for any more comments you may choose to leave.

I've got some very exciting news to share with you - I've been asked to join the design team for the scrapbook stamp society! I'm very excited - its always good to get to know new people and work with different images. So thanks guys for the opportunity! I hope I don't let you down! I'm not starting until September but I suspect I will start sharing the odd card here and there with you using their images.

Talking of which! I've got a Christmas card to share with you today - using a scrapbook and stamp society image called ' Victorian Holly ragamuffin'. You can get her here.






I've used the sketch and inspiration from Willow sketchie challenge and the colours for the winter wonderland challenge. The dies are from spellbinders. Some of the papers are from the new christmas range from wild rose studios.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

willowsketchiechallenge: Christmas in July
paperplaychallenges: Christmas in July
scrapbookstampsocietychallengeblog: Winter Wonderland
Winter wonderlandchristmasblogchallenge: Colour challenge
Stampin for the weekendstampinfortheweekend: photo insp (I've used the colours)
Crafters Companionccmonthlychallenge: Ho Ho Ho Christmas.

I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday - I was hoping to take the girls on a scavenger hunt today - but it looks like rain might stop play - again! I thought summer was supposed to be here - well its forgotten the NW!!!!!

Big hugs and see ya'll tomorrow!

Rachel xx
