Whoopsi Daisy X-mas in June challenge

Well before I post this weeks challenge for Whoopsi Daisy - I have another post from last weeks challenge with a big appology & dummy hat for me, as I totally forgot to post my creation for last weeks challenge. Sorry all - it was all done & saved as draft but I just never published it & only realised last night after it was pointed out to me.(such an idiot!) anyhow I thought I'd post it today before this weeks challenge just to show off the stunning image which I am just gutted I didn't post when I should have done. Actually whilst I'm on the subject, perhaps someone could help...I have on a few occasions tried to schedule my posts to start, but every time I have set it, its never published it. I'm going to 'post options' & selecting 'scheduled at' then changing the date & time accordingly, but no joy as yet. Does anyone know what the problem may be, or if I'm going wrong somewhere. This is probably a really stupid question, but does the computer have to be left switched on for it to work? Any help on the matter would be much appreciated as I often write my posts in advance.

So here is LAST weeks challenge post (please don't get confused - this is now closed for entry I just thought it was a shame for it to go to waste & wanted to show off this stunning image which is my fave christmas image I've EVER used!!!)

Hi all & this weeks Whoopsi Daisy challenge is Christmas in June. Great challenge I always love making cards out of season as I think it gives you a nice change. Also it reminds you that in crafters terms Christmas is only around the corner (big sigh) where exactly is it that the time goes again?!! This simply adorable image is from sheet , which along with an arrea of other christmas images can be purchased here. Why not head on over & see if you can get organised with your christmas makes, theres loads to choose from & something to suit everybody & with the outstanding value of these images - I know what I'll be using this christmas for my christmas cards!


I went for a semi-circular card blank, with smaller image circle, which is a bit of a trusty favourite plus I just think that it really suits these daisy images for some reason. How cute is this little angel?!!. Notice the 'snow' effect, which I've done with white flock & the wings have been highlighted with candy pink stickles glitter glue. I LOVE this lace for this design as I think it suggests icycles. I didn't plan the design to look like a sleigh from the outset, but when I was positioning the Magnolia Doo Hickey die-cut swirls, I kinda thought it gave the impression of a sleigh too. This stunning card-stock that I just can't get enough of at the mo is Bo Bunny double dot & gives a great embossed effect, bringing instant texture to your creations. The yummy papers are DCWV rose-tinted christmas stack & are my absolute fave x-mas papers EVER!!!
Notice the little punched snowflakes set with sworofski crystal centers...
