Snow in May ?!!

Happy Monday Girls.............this week over at Susie & Vikki’s Christmas Club Challenge we want to see stitching on your Christmas cards, "Sew"!!! come on get your sewing machines dusted off or your needle & threads out or if your not stitch happy then why not try some faux stitching by free hand drawing some dashes of cross stitches on your entry
Here's my DT example card I have used a Pink Gem snowman stamp coloured lightly with Copic markers
Stampin'up textured card stock , a Dolley and die cut shapes from my shop Die cut Dreams .
The sentiment is from MAMBI , I have used several different stitch styles on the sewing machine to make this quick and simple card.
I hope you'll have the time to join in this week for a chance to win a lovely selection of Vikki's posh pins from her new shop Posh Pins & Charms
I'm entering this card into the following challenges
Winter Wonderland challenge 'See Amid the Winter's Snow'
Just us Girls Challenge colour combo
Creative inspirations Die cut or punch
Have a great day thanks for dropping by
