Delightful Challenge Thursday – NEW RELEASE – What Did You Say? (Include a sentiment)

Good morning everyone, how are you? I am currently residing in Migraine town, not a place I would recommend you visit, but medication, determination and The Bee Gees are keeping me going! Bless ‘em!

So it’s Thursday and over on the Delightful Challenge Blog our new challenge this week is “What did you say?”, or in other words (get it!)  Include a Sentiment! And our new challenge coincides with another fabulous NEW RELEASE from Wendy who has created some AWESOME Christmas designs to inspire you! Check them all out here!

Our challenge is sponsored by 
who are offering this fabby prize!

 So the image I got to work with is the uber cute Ornament Mouse! Love, love, love him! And as this is a sentiment based challenge I also used the brand new Ornate Sentiment Set too! Perfect to make baubles out of I thought!
Have to admit I am loving these diorama cards at the moment! They are a cinch to make and give great dimension!

Dies: Tonic ‘Nesting Circles’ - Spellbinders ‘Heirloom Ornaments’ - ‘Tattered Lace ‘Christmas Foliage’ - Sue Wilson ‘Holly Sprays’
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White – Kanban snowflake card – various from stash
