Sparkly Christmas Cheer

Good morning,

I am writing this post with a big grin on my face, for the sun is out and the sky is blue! Yesterday was a miserable Saturday, with rain and grey clouds all day. Today I have big plans to get out and go walking with my dog down by the river - so I am so thankful that the weather has obliged.

It's time for a new challenge at The Squirrel and The Fox and this time we want you to

MAKE IT SPARKLE

Yup, we want to see all your glittery and sparkly creations - so go ahead, bling it up.

We are being sponsored by Bugaboo for our challenge this fortnight and for my creation I was lucky enough to play with their image - JJ Christmas.


I love this image and think she's just perfect for many of my girlfriends who take their festive celebrations very seriously. I think she'll feature heavily in my cards this year.

It was hard to capture the sparkles with my camera, but I have coloured the glass with Kindy Glitz glitter glue. The paper also has lots of sparkle through it. I made this card as a gatefold card - first time I have made a card like this actually - and I decorated the inside to match.

I hope you'll join us and be in for the chance to win the fabulous prize from Bugaboo. They have very generously offered 7 free digis to our lucky winner.

Thanks for visiting - now I'm off to enjoy this sunshine.
