If Snowflakes Were Kisses

Back in December I won a challenge with this card, and, 

finally the day has arrived to reveal my exciting news at which I hinted last week...
As a result of my win, I have been invited to join the design team at 

When the lovely Sybrina invited me to join the DT, I was not sure if I was ready to
begin 'DTing' again, but Words 2 Craft By is such an organised challenge,
I was thrilled to say "yes thank you".

(While I have previously been on several Design Teams, I had to resign because of
John's serious health problems resulting in the sale of our farm and moving 
into a retirement village.)

Words 2 Craft By is a monthly challenge, beginning on the second Wednesday of the
month, finishing on the first Wednesday of the following month. There is a slight
variation to usual challenge blog themes in that they consist of a quote. These
quotes, sometimes quite well known and often by famous people, can be 
interpreted in any way you wish.

The theme for this month is 
"If snowflakes were kisses, I'd send you a blizzard" 
so my first DT card was a joy to create. I immediately knew what image I 
would use...a cute one from Lili Of The Valley.

I used the challenge theme as the sentiment on my card.

A closer look at the lovely image, which I coloured with Promarkers. I
haven't hand-coloured any stamped images for ages, but I enjoyed
colouring this one so much, I will be doing more in the future.

Inside my card is very simple, with plenty of room to write
a personal message.
