SECRET CRAFTERS CHALLENGE WK 5/christmas Cards

SECRET CRAFTERS CHALLENGE WEEK 5
This is my card for this weeks challenge, i love Jills sketch this week, i will be using it again.
I am using an image sent to me by one of my wonderful friends, the sentiment came from a sheet brought from Anna-Marie designs. The snowflakes are a x-cut punch. Diamantes from stock. papers are the DCWV Luxury Stack.

These next two cards are for my christmas collection, papers are from a HOTP stack brought from QVC some time ago. Im not actually what the image is, so if anyone can help please let me know.

The second card is a High Hopes image, i adore this christmas fairy.





Thats all the cards I actually managed today. I have loads of images coloured though, ready for mounting, hopefully will get round to doing that this week, who knows i might even manage to do some more challenges.
Its been really miserable here this weekend. yesterday it rained all day and was very cold. Today it didn't rain but both Ben and Jasmine have my cold. So looks like im in for a couple more sleepless nights.
Hope you all had a good weekend, and i will visit your blogs tomorrow. Also i will be putting some blog candy up for grabs to celebrate my 5,000 hits since the end of September.
Hugs for now Linda x
