Winter Wonderland Challenge 34

I am delighted to have found a new challenge site:  Winter Wonderland.  Last year's Christmas card making was a real chore because I left it all too late, suddenly became very busy work-wise and then had to stay up late night after night.  I have lots of cards to make in January and February and I am not ordinarily motivated to make Christmas cards in the Spring or the Summer.  September onwards are busy birthday card months for me and, last year, all of a sudden it was Christmas and I was unprepared.  Winter Wonderland promises to "take the stress and strain out of Christmas by joining [them] on a creative and fun journey" getting prepared for the holidays.  Sounds good to me!

This week's challenge is for "teal and burgundy".  I used Papermania papers, tag and sentiment stamp.  The image, coloured with Copics and Promarkers, is one my mum drew for me using some Christmas pegs as inspiration.   She was with us for three weeks from Boxing Day - an extended stay due to the weather - and drew several images for me.  She's clever - my mum!
