Make It Monday sponsored by Di's Digis!

Happy Boxing Day everyone !  I hope you enjoyed your Xmas day - we had a fab time at my parents and today Steve and I are just veging out with Poppy and Lulu - that means an extra long walk today too what with all of the food we have consumed so far!  Thank goodness we have the Labs or we'd just sink into the sofa and become one with the leather!

Okay, so the new linky party has opened over at Make It Monday!  Today I'm sharing a birthday card for my friend who has a winter birthday (and, yes, she is as beautiful as this digi)...



I've used Baby It's Cold Outside by Sassy Studio Designs and matched her up with gorgeous papers from October Afternoon's Good Cheer paper pad.  I love the Stampin Up embossing folder - it looks like a knit weave so thought it would match her perfectly!  You can't see it well from the photos, but I used DCWV glitter cardstock for the snowflakes and Glamour Dust on her hat trims, here's a close up...



So the prize this week?  Di is generously offering the winner a £10 voucher from her store - Di's Digi Downloads!




Onto my pick of last week's entrants!  I chose this wonderful mini album by Tina of Bits and Scraps of My Life...

Created by Tina of Bits and Scraps of My Life

You go take a look at the other pages as they are all fab!  I love how she's used the colours and embellishing of each page, really came together beautifully!

Well that's it from me today - enjoy your Boxing Day!!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Wow! This is stunning! Love the colours and the texture.

According to my hubby, I have become one with the leather. Luckily today everyone was told to stay indoors because there was a huge storm so I had the perfect excuse to sink into the sofa for one more day.
