Good Morning!

 I'm GDT over at Crafts-Too Challenge You...   Yippee!!!!

I won one of their Challenges at the beginning of November and not only did I receive lots of goodies.
Brenda kindly asked my to be GDT.....  and  Today's my day!

The Challenge...

Main Theme - The Natural World with a Twist -

There are a huge variety of living things around us still in winter, living in a range of different habitats.
With Christmas projects at an end, join us with a nature inspired card, box, hanging, tag, etc., and don't forget the TWIST.
The twist is...
....Any Winged Creature...
This could be real or fantasy.....

 here is my card...

My inspiration for this card came because..
We live in a little village on the edge of the South Pennines in the UK..Which means we have an abundance of hills and rock faces! Hence the Dragon in her home.... The rock scene came from Make It Crafty and is called Cave Digi Stamp. But, instead of the dark interior I gave it light! {A girls got to see where she's going lol.}..The sky was made using distress ink 'Broken China'
The cute Dragon was a freebie from Colouring Book .......Images coloured with Copics and LOts of Glitter on her wings...Papers/Ribbon/Embellishments are all from stash..

Challenges entering...

Alphabet Challenge ~ W for whatever you Wish
Scribble & Scrap ~ Always Anything Goes
CMC ~ Holiday Themed

Coloured with Copics..There's Glossy Accents on his goggles and Crackled Accents on his fob...
Papers from stash..I hand cut the 'buckle' and I've had the hammer out making the Eyelets! Only thing is lol..there's a couple under the image....Spellbinder/Go Kreate dies used..Sentiments Computer..Now this card is for a really great guy...not just as hard looking he! he!..

The Christmas Tree and Bells are from Christmas Sentiments Shapes. There's also a Stocking! 
These Shapes are ideal! You get the 'shapes' and also the  design papers to go with them..
I did changed the colours of the papers in Microsoft Office, to go with the colours on this card. 

My Something special ........ I've been keeping these  Snowflakes for a long time! I was eventually going to cut them up and  use just a few at a time they were on a roll...but,  when I saw this Christmas Tree I decided I could use them down the edges...With two finishing at the top to look like a star! I then thought they look soooo pretty! I decided to use them the rest down the edges of the paper!  Yikes! This Christmas card will have to go to someone special!

I Coloured this sweetie with Copics...There's Lots of Clear Micro Beads on her dress. Glitter on her hat..
Papers/Ribbon from stash...The little frame I made with a Cake Mold/Air Drying Clay.

Good Evening!
Been shopping with hubby today! Went to a large store in a nearby Town!
I was busy shopping down one of the isles, when I looked in his direction, he was calling be back and pointed to the edge of the isle! I thought it must be something to buy so went back. It was a little girl! She must have been all of two. Hubby said he'd heard a little muffled sound looked down and there she was!
No Mummy in sight..Ended up taking her to Customer Service ..The girl behind the counter asked her what her Mummy was called!  Poor little mite - we couldn't even make out what she said her own name was! I said  "Please, just say you've found a little girl!  Some one must be getting very worried"
Mummy soon arrived...One little girl very happy..

These two little cuties live with Sassy Cheryl  the little guy is called Max is Flying High the girl is called
Warm Winter The little fence is from Make It Crafty Colored with Copics....LOts of Glitter on the fence..
Distress Inked the sky...Papers/Ribbon from stash.......
I've made this for our Daughter and her Partner {Who just happens to be a Gliding Instructor} Think it will bring a smile to their faces.
