It's Christmas Bingo at Winter Wonderland

Good morning all

Well I'm sure most of you probably think I've disappeared from the face of blogland by now!
and I have to confess I thought I had as well

Life has just been so so busy, unexpected and downright messy lately!!

in the last 3 months 

I slipped and fell and turned into an old, aching, moaning crock!!
Got an ear infection - and moaned some more
Went on holiday for almost 4 weeks - and cheered up
came back to Christmas (!)
attended my sons Masters degree graduation - and was so so proud
found I was going to be Grandma (again) to a baby girl :  )

All the while very little crafting or blogging has happened

But I've managed to squeeze in for the last challenge of the year at 

Winter Wonderland

where our theme is 

Christmas Bingo

I used this cute image from The Paper Shelter 
called - Snowman

We have 3 fabulous prizes provided by out sponsors

a £10 gift certificate from Bunnyzoes Crafts

a £10 voucher from Crafter's companion

a surprise from Marianne's designs

So definitely worth entering!

This is what I did...
Image - Snowman - from TPS
Coloured with Spectrum noir pencils and glitter pens
Dies - wild rose snowflake corners
           Memory box - stitched rounded squares
Card - Kraft card from Crafters companion
        - Red Christmas card from Papermania
Paper - Dovecraft nordic papers
Epoxy button - Anna Griffin
Flowers and Gems - from my stash
Snowflake gems - Creative Expression

It's such a busy time of the year so we're running this challenge for 3 weeks over the holidays to give you lots of time to enter

This is so cute Judith. It sounds like we have both had a bad time of it.
I have had hubby really ill since July, nearly lost him at one point. Treatment is on going at the moment.
