Good Morning Everyone

Happy New Year!  I hope you had a good night whatever you were doing.  We don't go out on New Year's Eve now just have a cosy night in, a Baileys and last night we watched  James Bond in Spectre as we hadn't seen it before.

Well the 1st of the month means a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas challenge and the theme this month is Add Some Sparkle.

I'm going to try and make a few more "grown up" Christmas cards this year as I found a lot of my cute image ones weren't really suitable for some of the older people I send to.  So, for this card, I've used a Stamping Bella image of baubles.  I do love this and will probably try it out in a few different colour ways.  I've used copics and lots of glitter.  The middle bauble has a clear sparkle pen smeared all over it and the outer two have the glitter.  I heat embossed the sentiment and used silver mirror card and a pale green dp from a LOTV pad, although it doesn't look very green in the photo I'm afraid.

If you'd like to pop over to the challenge we have some lovely new DT members and you'll be able to see the inspiration from them.

I would like to enter these challenges:

I must say it's nice to get back in the craft room again - I missed it even after just over a week out.

Thank you for visiting and I will be back on Thursday.
