Sparkles 2nd Birthday - Anything Goes!


Good morning......hope you're all well!
Today sees the start of our last (for this year!) challenge
over at Sparkles and the theme is
"Anything Goes". A nice easy theme to end the
 year and also to celebrate our 2nd Birthday!
As usual, you have a month to play, can make absolutely
anything and have the chance of winning a fab prize
from our sponsor Digital Delights who are
offering $5 to spend in store!

 Don't forget to go see
the fabby makes from the rest of the DT.....you can
find them over on the main blog!
For my DT piece I made a tag to go on a gift for a
sweet little lady who will soon be 1 year old! I used a
plain kraft tag, a scrap of Boofle paper, lace trim,
pearls and a gorgeous decoupaged Boofle!
Busy day for me today.....few more pressies to wrap
and might even squeeze in a Christmas film!
Thanks for calling today......hope your days' a good one!

 Morning everyone......Monday morning again and we have a new 
challenge starting over at Lexi's Creations

card, it can be anything crafty just so long as there is 
some snow on it! We have the fabulous Joanna Sheen 
sponsoring us this time
and as usual, if you need inspiration you can check
out my teamies gorgeous creations over on the main

have even longer to play.......plenty of time to get crafty!
I used a sweet little image from Fairy Dust Crafts....it's
actually a snow globe scene but I had a bit of an
accident when I cut it out.........oooops..........so
I turned it into a card that's going to a friends' little boy who
 loves garden gnomes.........don't you think the little Santa
looks just like a garden gnome lol............hope he likes it!
Rightio, off to wrap up some Christmas pressies!
Thanks for calling, hope your days' a good one!
