Playtime and three new challenges for me

Today I wanted to play with my new toys and participate in some blogs which are new to me so I have made special time and enjoyed every minute.
I have three friends whom are on the DT at Christmas Stampin ALL YEAR LONG and challenge #22 is a freebie to just make a Christmas card. Allsorts Challenge 6 have a theme of WINGS and Dottie´s World have a theme of Christmas in June.



For my card I have used Holly from Charmed Cards and Crafts and I had to buy both sets as they are so adorable. I have coloured Holly with my prismas and added oodles of glamour dust to her wings, dress and boots and green glitter glue to her lower eyelashes - also added some red flat backed gems for the holly berries on her headband. My backing papers are all from Bearly Mine Designer Extreme Volume 1 as I simply can´t live without these and my gorgeous hanging charm is from Poppy Petals Designs. I have cut a snowflake from a sissix die and my flowers, spacers and brads are all from The Hobby House.
Ooh I am just loving these adorable little pixies so you are warned ... there will lots more coming!
Enjoy your day and I will be back tomorrow with my DT card. -x-
