New challenge at Sweet Stampin'

Hello blogworld

Told you it was a fluke that I posted so regularly!  Have been very busy, so went back to normal and apologies that you haven't seen me for a few days.  You probably aren't going to see me regularly either for the next couple of weeks as school broke up today for the holidays and they don't go back until the 4th - so will only have evenings for crafting, plus we've got Grandad coming up to stay over Christmas so I can't really disappear into the dining room every evening!

Have been so busy this week. Been to school twice - once for Emily's school play and then for Carol singing.  The only other play she's been in was the Nursery Nativity, so we hit the big time this year ;-)  Unfortunately she didn't really look like she was enjoying herself, she was a snowman and stood there for most of the time twiddling her hair!  Been and finished our Christmas shopping so only the wrapping of presents to finish off now.  Organised for once this time!!

Anyway enough waffle from me, this post is supposed to be about the new challenge over at Sweet Stampin'!  This week we are sponsored by Di's Digis and the prize is a $10 voucher to spend in the shop.  Also the challenge runs for two weeks this time - to allow you all time off over Christmas!  So why not pop over and join in, you'll get even more inspiration from my Teamies wonderful creations.

For this challenge we would like to see your glittery / sparkly / blingy creations!  So without any further ado here is my glittery creation, along with lots of pictures to show the glitter.

Front shot of card:

Detail of image, trying to get the glitter here!:

Even sprayed the flowers with Glimmer Mist - first time I've tried this!:

I used:

Di's Digi image - Cuddle Christmas; coloured with my Promarkers (all the fur trims covered in Glamour Dust), die-cut and mounted onto nesties.  I even added a touch of  Stickles to the the papers!
The papers are - crate paper; Snowy Day Collection.
The flowers and heart pins are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the flowers have been sprayed with Gold Glimmer Mist.
Sentiment created on the computer and die-cut with Shapeabilities - fancy tags 2.

Hope everyone is coping OK with the stresses of Christmas looming on the horizion and the snow hasn't affected anyone too badly.

See you soon,

A challenge, or two,:

Gorgeous card Sarah! Super cute image and love all the sparkle, fab flower too :o)

I think the plays can be a bit scary for little ones, with loads of parents watching - Dex can be quite shy so we were surprised how well he coped with it, although he did suck his thumb a lot!

Wish I was as organised as you, still got loads to do... eek! Lisa x
