Simple doodles + Dutch Dare DT cards.

Good morning to you all,hope all those of you in the UK are keeping ok in this snow! 2nd year running we get the bad snow and it causes havoc!At least the kids are happy they don`t have to go to school.
This week over at Dutch Dare our wonderful sponsor is Suzette from Crafty Sentiments.
She has so kindly provided the cute snowman couple and snowman that you can find on some of the DT cards,these are the images one lucky person can win.So what's our challenge you ask...we would love to see your Christmas (winter is just fine as well) themed tags, ornaments or cards!

Here i have used the very cute couple and cut them out using the Magnolia tag die.I then cut out 2 Marrianne creatables doily die,using 2 different papers,cut them in half and stuck 1 of each together.Done the same with the other 2 halves and laid them overlapping each other.Added some glitter all around the edges.Distressed the edges with worn lipstick and faded jeans,tore the top corner and added some of the paper i used for the doily.Stuck on some snowflakes and some gems and there you have it!Please come and join us and take a look at what my fellow DT`s have made.
 This is also for Dutch Dare but also for Simple Doodles.This week we have a Photo inspiration for you.Please check out the photo at Simple doodles,it`s beautiful.Unfortunately when i tried to put it on here it was tiny and you couldn`t really see it clearly.I have chosen to do an ornament,i had seen this on splitcoast stampers and wanted to give it ago.The paper is a download from crafty sentiment,which i printed onto pearlised paper.I have put a piece of it next to it so you can see it better.I used the fleur de lis pendant from spellbinders,gems brads and ribbon was from my stash.

Here i added it to the Christmas tree we put up yesterday.Normally i tend to do it the first weekend of December,but as i and the kids were off decided to do it then.They have yet to decorate it,as it was getting late.I had already put the big tree up,but as we had moved around it was far too big so i had to go up in the loft and get the slim one down!
Please come and join us at Simpledoodles and check out the other girls fab work.
Look forward to you joining us at Simpledoodles and Dutch dare,can`t wait to see your creations.
                                      Take care in the snow.
