Time for a new Challenge #185 at OSAAT

Our challenge at One Stitch At A Time challenge blog  this week is called, 'Winter Wonderland' and such a great theme.  Our rules are quite straightforward,

1, You can enter our challenge as many times as you like as long as you use a Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet image available from here.  You have the chance to win out top prize of three lovely Promarkers from our sponsor this week, Creative Craft World.  You can enter ONLY three times with a non-Stitchy Bear image.

2, On your post you must link to our challenge blog.

3, No backlinking, your project must be new and blogged after our challenge goes live.

In the words of The Meerkat, 'Simples'! 

Well, my card this week, for me, proved to be difficult. Not in using Alipeeps Art's really beautiful image that you can find here but in that it was the anniversary of losing our Paul. I tried so hard but grief got in the way and I created something that has so much meaning in the image and words, selfishly, just for me.  This will stay with me forever and is so personal.


I've used the Spellbinders Grand Decorative Ovals One for the navy blue card and cut the the beautiful image with a plain oval. The stars are an X-Cut die and the silver flourish comes from Memory Box.
