Hello everyone and welcome to our 2nd challenge over at CARD CRAFTER'S CIRCLE.  My apologies for being a bit late this week (our challenge begins on Friday), but I have been ridiculously busy getting gifts wrapped and cleaning the house in preparation for Christmas.  Tonight we will have my in-laws, parents, and my husband's brother over for Christmas Eve dinner - plus my kids will obviously be here and are anticipating the arrival of Santa.  

This week our challenge is themed CHRISTMAS and we are sponsored by the FABULOUS
Our amazing sponsor this week, Dearie Dolls, who are very special to us at Card Crafter's Circle ... Mary Ellen, the wonderful owner/designer also created our header, logo and badges that adorn our challenge blog. The prize for our random winner this challenge is their choice of three (3) Dearie Doll images!
The DT were able to choose from a wonderful selection of Dearie Dolls Christmas images for our creations this week.  I chose "Winter Scene."  I hope you will get a chance to visit the blogs of the other DT girls and see their awesome creations as well as come and play along at CARD CRAFTER'S CIRCLE this time.  Please remember to read the rules on our sidebar:)

I colored my Dearie Dolls image with Copics and Fiskars glitter gel pens.  I cut out using Nellie's die.  Backing scalloped circle cut with Nesties.  Papers from Core-dinations and DCWV, ribbon is from my stash.  Sentiment is from Darcie's Heart and Home, cut with Memory Box die and bling from Darice added.  I also added Stickles for the snow and icicles.   I hope you like it:)
