Winter Birthdays

Do you have someone who has a birthday coming up this month or next month? People who have birthdays close to Christmas often say they feel left out when it comes to their birthdays and people get one gift to cover both events. So we thought we would let them know they are not forgotten about by us crafters, and infact we will make them a special something to celebrate the fact that they have a Winter Birthday! You can make anything you like, maybe a card, a scrapbook layout of even home d├ęcor.  You can use any products you like to enter as long as it follows the theme for this week. We don’t have many rules but check them out in the side bar if you need to. We give you two weeks to enter so that means the CLOSING DATE IS 8th December 2015 and the winners will be announced on 15th December 2015.
PRIZES: The random winner (chosen by Random.org) will receive £5 worth of downloads of your choice from the digi store!
The winner and top 3 for week 44 can be found at the bottom of this post.

So let’s see what the design team have made for us...
Lynda: What is winter? if your in the UK it's the wind and the rain :-) This week I choose use a gorgeous sentiment, banner and digi stamp from the Serenity collection, the digi stamp is called Serenity Earthstar, I also used the pretty papers from the Eden collection paper heaven. Have Fun xx
Julie -- Polka Doodles has so many wonderful Winter/Christmas collections that can be used for this Winter birthday theme. I used one of the design sheets from the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection to create this card. It's available both in Digital Download (instant gratification) or CD. I fussy cut lots of layers, then used 3D foam tape in-between. The sentiment is one of the many freebies in the Polkadoodles store. Have you snagged them yet?
Fiona GDT-- I am loving this collection of cute images from the Polka Doodles Twiggy and Toots Festive cd For my make I have used the embellishments from the cd as well as the fantastic different backing papers. Its available to purchase either on cd or as a download...

Gail For my make I have created an art journal page using the very gorgeous Octavia Winter Time digi stamp and papers from Octavia Frosted Winter collection, available on CD-ROM and digital download...
Tanya  Hello there.  For this week's winter birthday theme I've coloured one of the adult colouring book sheets from Colour Therapy Collection 1 Florabunda which is available on CD and download and a full list of the all the collections can be found HERE and HERE, because not only you can buy them in sets of three there is also the fabulous Colour Therapy Colouring Club.  I've used Graph It pens amongst other things in shades of blue and purple which always remind me of winter.  Look forward to seeing your makes for this challenge. 
Monica.- Birthdays are always related to presents. For this week project, I print one of the precoloured images included on Octavia Frosted Winter"Husky Hugs" over printable cotton fabric and applied to a chevron fabric bag. To add a final touch I print one of the tags included in that collection, add some flowers and leaves and a birthday sentiment.
Jane – Hello! My birthday make this week features the gorgeous SERENITY RESTING one of many beautiful fairies to be found in the SERENITY FAIRY WISHES COLLECTIONThe paper is also from this bundle and the sentiment is from WORK AND PLAY 3.  I love how versatile Nikky’s images are and, although not traditionally suited for colder climes, I dressed this lovely lady in sleeves, gloves and winter pansies to match our theme.  Have a lovely crafty day! xxx
Aunty Sue - Now Winter Birthdays close to Christmas can often get neglected. So for my Special Winter Birthday card I have used Octavia Frosted Winter and Twiggy & Toots CDs and made a winter scene. All printed onto Ultimate Graphic paper available in the shop here. As you can see this is for my Dad whooooo (sorry had to be done) has a birthday the week before Christmas.
Emma - brrrrggghh its getting colder here so its a perfect time to get out the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection for my Winter Birthday card. I have used Arctic Winter Start who can be found as a single digi Here, I have coloured her up with Copic's. All of the papers are from the full Frosted Winter collection that can be found Here
Audrey chose Party, Birthday, Celebration Twiggy and Toots for this week's winter birthday theme.  The image is also included in the Twiggy and Toots Owls Digital Download Collection.  My sentiment is also from Twiggy and Toots Owls Digital Download Collection - I cropped it from the ticket sentiment sheet found in the collection, then made the background transparent in Gimp editing and changed the lettering color to white.  I then mounted it inside the heart embellie from Frosted Winter Octavia Digital Download Collection.  My papers and frosted tree are also from Frosted Winter Octavia Digital Download Collection.

Helen - I've used papers and a pre-coloured digi from the 'Work and Play 5 - Festive Hollybobs Full Download Collection' and the 'Birthday Wishes' downloadable sentiment digi stamp.
Anjie - What better to use for this challenge than the fabulous Octavia Frosted Winter Collection! You can also buy this on CD HERE, and in separates HERE. And as it is my Mum's birthday on the 28th I need to make three cards for her so here they are.  Everything other than the die cut sentiments are from this collection, it really does have everything you need in one place.  This is the one from me.
