Winter Theme Debate

Hi Everyone

It is the start of a new challenge today over at Creative Craft Cottage 

The theme for this month is Winter.  I really struggle with this theme and we had a big debate amongst the DT as to what Winter Cards are.  To me they are Christmas and that is as simple to me as it is.  For others it is Images of winter things such as sledging, Ice Skating etc.  What I cannot understand is why you would even have the theme of winter as we do not send "Happy Winter Cards"  Again it seems simple to me its just not done lol.  However the DT's argument is you can use Ice Skating, sledging images etc for Winter Birthday.  Once again I did not get this lol.  My birthday was the 2nd of January which is in winter but I wouldn't want a card with a sledge on it just because its in that season.  Anyway I agreed to disagree and we went with the theme of Winter but for those of us that cannot think of anything other than Christmas I threw a Christmas image in for the DT to use lol.

I would be interested to know what you all think about this.  Is the Winter theme for you just another word for Christmas or do you send cards with Winter images on for something else?

We are being sponsored for this challenge by Paper Nest Dolls and the image I used is called Tree Dress Avery and I have coloured her using Copics and Diamond Sparkles Glitter to give her sparkly tights.

The card is a 7" Square and I based it with Gold Mirror card and the stripey paper is from Trimcraft.  I used the same Mirror Card and Stripey Paper to make up the layers on the card.  I added a Christmas Ribbon and hand tied the Bow.  To finish I opooed on some Gold Nail Heads.

 Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and share this card with me today.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.

I love the image on your card and the way it is coloured. Interesting your thoughts on Winter - I'm definitely in the camp that Winter is one thing Christmas is another - winter cards to me would include wintery trees, snow, ( we rarely get snow in the UK at Christmas and not until Feb/March) ice, blue cards often suggest winter cards for me.
