Digi Choosday Challenge – Winter Birthdays!

Good morning!  Hope all is well with you and yours!

It’s Choosday which means it’s time for a new challenge over at DIGI CHOOSDAY and our theme this week is Winter Birthdays!  As always we have a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out the BLOG for details and as it is also DISCOUNT DAY you need to grab the code to get a MASSIVE reduction in the POLKADOODLES SHOP! But be quick, it’s a limited time offer!!

So I dug out one of my fave 8x8 circles cards again for my make this week.


This is the gorgeous SERENITY RESTING who is probably more suited to the spring or summer so I had to winter-fy her up a bit.  I gave her winter pansies in her hair and dressed her with sleeves and gloves and stuck her in a snowstorm.  Kind of me don’t you think!  
 Now I have to admit that this did not turn out as I had originally planned but then what does!! This was going to be an aperture tent card with the image sort of suspended in the middle.  Did. Not. Happen. L So it is now an aperture card with NOTHING suspended at all.  Except maybe disbelief!! J  

.....AJAR! :)
