My new DT news!! - Clean and Simple at Winter Wonderland

.... and hello for the third time today!!

Today I am really happy to be posting my first DT card for my new DT at

when I saw the DT call I just had to enter because I love making Christmas cards and I was thrilled to bits when I was asked to join the team and to work with the lovely talented ladies there.  For me it's just a great chance to get ahead with those Christmas cards - how could I not join in!!

Not only is this my first DT card - but I also got to host the challenge this week too
So pop over to the Challenge blog to see what I have to say over there too
 - I seem to have an awful lot to say today lol

Our theme for the week is 

Clean and Simple

and we have a fab sponsor this week

Dis Digistamps

 who are giving a $12 voucher to spend in store

I'm using a reeeealy old stamp for this card 
it's one of Joanna Sheen's Messy Rabbit stamps
I don't think they're available anymore - such a shame because they are so cute
I have quite a few of them - so I might just get them out again and have a play - I think I also have the matching paper pads - hands up who has so much stash they can't remember what or where it is!!

The little holly stamps also come with it, as well as some other cute little embellie stamps 
 and the sentiment is from LOTV
the pearly dots are cosmic shimmer and the berries are a red viva decor pen.
Glitter is gold stickles

I coloured this image with Spectrum Noir pencils - the first time I've ever coloured an image totally with pencils, I usually use them for shading after colouring with pens.  I have to admit I wasn't too keen on it when I finished it but when I looked at it again next morning I really liked the effect - I think probably the artificial light at night washed it out.  But in day light it looks soft and pretty - totally different to the vibrant colours that you get with alcohol pens.

Well if you followed me through my 3 posts today well done! 
- if not - just get back and see the other's - you don't know what you're missing lol

Challenges I'm entering with this card

Thats crafty challenge - keep it simple
