115 Days to Christmas!!!

Over on Dottie's World this week it was Juliet's turn to set the challenge and what a great challenge too! Thank you Juliet!

So to the challenge - simple really, just make something Christmassy - a card, tag, decoration; absolutely anything as long as you include one of the downloads (it doesn't HAVE to be from the Christmas collection either as many of the other images are so adaptable).

The rest of the design team have created some absolutley amazing work so please pop over and check it out.

I loved this challenge and me, being me, I decided to use an image that wasn't from the Xmas bundle. It has been such a hectic week for me this week with Chris being on holiday, trying to decorate and then having Jack's Birthday....I ended up being pushed for time to make a card- so there I sat at the last minute with all these little images in front of me and ideas swirling around my head...unfortunately I have put most of them to one side for another day.

I ended up using Bedtime Dottie from the Dottie at home collection I thought she looked so appropriate "waiting for Father Christmas!" I kept the card really simple with the "white Christmas" theme in mind.

Yesterday Louise posted details of Dottie's World CustomerS of the month! Basically if you play along with the 115 Days to Christmas challenge you can get yourself a free exclusive Dottie Download Image...and it is divine...don't miss out!

Oh Adele you are amazing! You hit the spot every time.
I'd never have thought of using that image but it works absolutely perfectly!

Juliet said...

Brilliant idea for this card Adele and the image fits perfectly! Love all the white too - the embossing and snowflakes are so effective.

What a fantastic card. I'd never have thought of using this image for Christmas, but might just have to remember it now. Hope you don't mind if I possibly 'lift' that?
Great challenge it is too. I need to start making Christmas cards, so this will be a great start.
