One Stitch at A time DT Card Cha 38


Another great challenge over at OSSAT this week .....winter wonderland Anything goes!!
For my DT card this week I have used a fabulous image ..Snoozy Xmas by Di of disdigidownloads.blogspot.com/ 

who is kindly sponsoring our challenge this week, the winner will receive 5 images of their choice from Di..how cool is that!!!
I have coloured my image using my trusty promarkers, the backing paper is from a scrapbooking kit I won as a prize , I have also used the snowflake cuttlebug folder and finished off my card with ribbon from my stash and a couple of vellum punched flowers
A little bit about Di

I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion to share my cards with like minded people. I was a stamper and loved finding images, but some I could not find so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!
