My Hosting Winter Wonderland Challenge Post- Have A Heart!!

This is my first Winter Wonderland hosting for a challenge for 2016.

The theme this week is:

Have A Heart.

To qualify for the prize, somewhere there must be a heart on 
your card or project. Or if a card, could be the shape of the card.

As I am writing this, the sun is streaming in my craft room window.
It doesn't tell you that it is actually blimmin freezing out there though!!

At least it helped me make a card with a Spring feel to it.
I used a Little Claire Digi called Bunny With Tulips.
Such a sweet image and really enjoyed making it.

Little Claire are one of our sponsors this week, 
their prize is an amazing 6 Digi Images!!



Along with Crafters Companion,
whose prize is a £10 voucher to spend in their shop.



As you can see, a very sweet bunny!!

I used Distress Inks to colour this adorable image.
Along with papers from my stash.


For the background, I ran the card blank through my Joy Trouvaille machine, inside a Couture Creations A4 embossing folder called Tied Together.

I added the little hearts at the joins. They were the waste from another die! 
As were the little butterflies.

I used my Tim Holtz ruler with holes in it for the edge around the image.


So if you enter the WW challenge and you can enter 3 times, you will have 
the chance to get this gorgeous image along with 5 others!!

Oh! Don't forget that as it is still February, you don't have to 
make Christmas cards/projects. That is why my card is Spring like!

If you need more inspiration, pop over to the Winter Wonderland
blog and see the fantastic cards from my Snowflakes Teamies.

So join in the fun and you could win a great prize.

Thanks for your lovely messages and as you know
I do love to read them all.

Hugs,
Carol xxxx

Adorable card Carol - such a sweet image.
Looks like your die cutting and embossing machine gives a really good emboss - I have that folder but it never seems to emboss as deep as yours looks to have done.
Have a wonderful weekend.
