Happy new year or someone special challenge at Winter Wonderland

Don't forget to enter my candy draw for a fab Craft planner for 2017

Good morning all

Today is our last challenge for the year over at 

Winter Wonderland

this one doesn't need to be a Christmas project

our dual themes are 

Happy New Year 
For Someone Special

I chose to go with a box card for someone special
and it's a very special person to me - an absolute treasure 💕💕
- my Grandson Jacob - who was 5 years old on Tuesday

I've bought a few of the Tattered Lace  Disney dies as they've come up 
- just odd ones that I could use to make a few cards and Christmas projects

This one is supposed to be a Christmas Die(and he has a present in his hands that I cut off!)- but he suits this winter birthday just as well
and Jacob loves Donald Duck
when we went to Walt Disney World and he went to 'meet' the characters 
there wwre 4 lines to choose
- Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald 
........we stood in line to meet Donald Duck!!

and here is Jacob with the Duck himself!!
this was taken just before last Christmas - now he's a whole year older
where does the time go!

We have two fab sponsors for our challenge this week

Crafter's Companion


A Day for Daisies

I was so pleased with how this card turned out - if not a bit fiddly and definitely time consuming!!
 - but totally worth the effort

Hope we see you at Winter Wonderland this last time for 2016!

This is what I did

Pop up box card made with Core'dnations card stock in blue and yellow from Crafter's Companion
Happy birthday and birthday cake dies - Sara Davies Signature birthday collection
