Winter Wonderland

This weeks theme has been chosen by my fab Teamie Danielle and is "Jesus is the reason for the season"
Now this may be somewhat controversial for some folks but it is true the whole celebration is around the birth of a baby 2,000 years ago who has changed the lives of many people and continues to do so today. When I was growing up going to church was a big part of the Christmas celebrations and I still get a thrill going to the midnight service and hearing extracts from the Nativity story. I have been known to well up with tears (mum says my bladder is too close to my eyes) whilst reading the Nativity to my own children in the past and now my nephew, Matthew and niece, Rebecca. In fact Rebecca loves the Dick Bruna book I have so much I tried to buy her a copy - do you know its out of print? and when I looked the only copy on ebay already had bids of over £40! Still I digress from the challenge so better get back to my post Lol
Last Sunday I did a wonderful promarkers course at my local shop and this was one of the cards I made. Image I think is Stampendous - papers I'm really not sure so maybe someone will enlighten me. I MADE myself move away from red and green for this one just to do something that bit different and I do like it. Katy was so helpful with hints and tips on using promarkers I really feel my colouring has improved quite a bit.
Now the WW challenge is sponsored by Robyn's fetish stamps who have lots of varied digital images on offer so go on join in - You could be the winner!
Do stop by Winter Wonderland where the team have made some stunning cards with Nativity scenes. I look forward to seeing your entries on my visiting travels x Janet
