Christmas Challenges (with sketches) #88

Good morning all.
Had a lovely day on Monday, lunch with my sister after the wedding invites were all sorted - I also got a CD of all the official wedding photos from July, over 600 of them so that should keep me busy getting my favourites all scrapped! Then visited my sister in law over the road and finally my Mum and another sister before driving home into the sunset!
The dog went to have her puppy making bits doctored yesterday, so she's feeling a bit sorry for herself poor thing!

It's time for another challenge over at CCWS and we hope you're playing along with us this year and stocking up on those Christmas cards and projects. It's the turn of the Snow Angels to inspire you this week and Janneke has designed the sketch. We are being sponsored by Delicious Doodles.

I've used this gorgeous Christmas Lantern image from Delicious Doodles, coloured with promarkers and die cut with a fancy rectangle from Spellbinders. Papers are all from Papermania. Sentiment and pearls are from my stash.


You will have to pop over to the challenge blog to see the sketch for yourself, remember to check out
 the inspiration of the other DT members whilst you're there.
