It's a brand new Challenge over at ADU!

Hello friends!
I have been AWOL at a friend's wedding this weekend.
Had a great time but was overshadowed with news that my 4 year grandson Alfie, had had another febrile seizure. I know they aren't serious and he will grow out of them at about 6 or 7 years old, but it's still a worry. He's absolutely fine  again now, but it cast a shadow over the weekend all the same.

OK! Let's get happy!
It's challenge time at All Dressed Up and the theme is 'CHRISTMAS'!
YEAH. Not long now. How did it arrive so quickly!

Please join in with us. we LOVE seeing your challenge entries. 

Here's my sample card which I hope will inspire you a little to play along.

Isn't that little shepherd the cutest you ever saw!!
He's available to purchase at theAll Dressed Up Store.
Wendy Burns is a fabulous illustrator and you will fall in love with all her gorgeous images.

My cute little shepherd is coloured with Copics and framed by a Marianne die.
The ticket is one of the dies on a plate that I've had forever.
(I'm rubbish at keeping track of my stuff).
I don't reckon it's the end of the world though,
 'coz you would no doubt use different stuff anyway.
 I sponged the edges of almost everything with Tim Holtz 'scattered Straw' ink!

Well, I hope you love my shepherd as much as I do.
AND there's plenty more cuteness for you to see over at All Dressed Up.

The rules are pretty simple too for our challenges...
you can find all the details on the All Dressed Up blog HERE.  

  Challenge winners are selected by the design team and will be announced shortly after the new challenge is announced.  
First place will receive 3 images of their choice from All Dressed up Store and the right to post the winner badge on their blog.  
The winner has two weeks to claim their prize.  
A Top 3 badge is available for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th place finishes.

Have a great week and I look forward to seeing your projects!

First of all Viv, I know what a worry it must be for you about Alfie. Our grandchildren are such precious gifts and although you say it isn't serious, it is still a huge worry.
Your card is beautiful. I don't know how you do it but your work always has... I don't know how to describe it but it has a 'glow' to it and this card does too. Gorgeous colouring and I love the die, papers and flower too!

Marisa said...

What a darling image and wonderfully coloured too! Love how you framed that little shepherd boy. Fabulous card!!

Jackie said...

I hope that Alfie is okay now, it's always a worry when the little ones are poorly...hugs
Sorry I had to miss the wedding but at least I managed to see your all briefly the nmext day :o)
I bought that tag set at the same time as you and have never got around to using it yet LOL.
Love, Jackie xx
