My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

Willow Sketchie Challenge: 2nd February - DT Card & DT Call

Good morning, it's Thursday and time for a new challenge at Willow Sketchie.

A big thank you to all of you who played along with our last challenge, again an amazing amount of entries.

This week it's the lovely Lisa's turn to host the challenge and she has produced this fab sketch for us to follow:

I loved working with this one and here's my take on it:  I made this card for a friend who lives at the back of me, who two year's ago had a house fire and a few weeks back after demolition and a new build have returned back home.

Card Ingredients:

Willow Designs Polly Pickleberry CD
(Papers, Greeting & Digi Image from CD)
Card Stock from Stash
Gems & Pearls - NEC Stash
American Crafts Ribbon
Computer Generated Greeting
Wooden Flower - NEC Stash
Peeled Paint Distress Ink
Nesties & Punch

One lucky winner will receive a voucher to spend in the on-line store HERE!

If you want to get hold of a copy of the NEW Polly Pickleberry CD, then you can obtain your copy HERE priced at £11.99.

We look forward to seeing you join in with us this week and remember you don't have to use a Willow Designs image to enter, although it would be lovely if you did.

 Hop on over to the challenge blog and take a look at the rest of the DT's fabulous creations using this brilliant new CD.

But that's not all, we at Willow Towers are having a DT call - we are a fabulous bunch of ladies and are looking for some more talent to join our team.  Read below if you are interested on how to apply:
