4 challenges with 1 card

Never in my wildest dreams could I get four cards done in a day ... if only!  I would be well set for Christmas then.  I've followed this weeks Sketch & Stash challenge sketch, Creative Card Crew and Stampavie & more are both Christmas and MTTC is Winter Pals.

I love this new Whiff of Joy image of Willow reading a story - reminds me of years gone by when my children were little.  In fact it could be them!  My daughter always had her nose in a book and my son always had a cookie in his hand lol.

Because the image is so large I have kept the embellies to a minimum, I had a job squeezing those buttons down the side, the middle one is perched very precariously on the edge!!  The image has been coloured with distress inks and H2O's.  The rest of the embellies are from my stash and the sentiment is a Studio G one.  The paper is ancient K&Co.

Thanks for stopping by,
