Hi all - I'm absolutely thrilled to announce that I have been accepted on the design team over at This is a monthly Christmas challenge and as I love all things Christmas so happy to have joined them.
The challenge this month is to use buttons or bows on your Christmas project (or both if you wish). This month our wonderful sponser is - 
For my first Dt card for them I have used a gorgeous new stamp - Bellas first Christmas.
I just love this stamp - so cute. I have coloured it using my copics - hope you can see the shading - I have been attending classes with Kate at Grimsby Crafts who is a whizz with copics and hopefully I am learning a few of her skills lol. Her blog is - I added a little glamour dust to the hat.

The main backing paper is from Bellas Xmas 6x6 papers. All other card is from my stash. The glorious lace and ribbon is from Grimsby crafts. I added 4 shaped buttons to fit in with the theme of this months challenge.
I would like to enter this in the following challenges -

thanks for the shout and you did make me smile, just look at the shadow under Bella's Santa hat and love the tree colouring looks lovely on the close up. Great choice of pink for the ears and toes too. But have to say stunning little bows on that gorgeous thread lace, what a gorgeous card.

Do add this to the Wild Rose Studio FB page, they would love to see it there

Hugs Kate
