Christmas is coming...Sparkles DT card!

Morning all.....hope you're all well today & big hugs to
those that aren't feeling too good!
Today sees a new challenge over at Sparkles and
the theme is "Christmas is coming"...........and isn't it
coming fast! Now as usual, we'd like to see anything you'd
like to create, doesn't have to be a card, just so
long as you stick to the theme. For inspiration why not
go check out the rest of the teams fab creations over on the
main blog........they're gorgeous! Our fabulous sponsor
this time is Lily of the Valley 
who are offering our lucky winner £10 spend in their cool is'll be spoilt  for choice!
I made a card using the cutest snowlady digi, some
very old but lovely paper, die cut bunting, icicle
border, some resin snowflakes, pearls, ribbon and
a hand stamped sentiment! Love this colour combo
and will definitely be using it to
use up all that paper! Thanks for calling today, hope
your days' a good one!
Hugs Jo x

    PS - Love the new blog background, very cute!!

  34. I love that link, black and white colour looks great together!
    That banner is so stinkin' cute! Love that you added the snowflakes...I have a banner from Memory box but it is too big for cards...great for scrap booking though.
    Your banner is just the right size for cards.

    Hope you are doing well...I am struggling a bit now. I was doing fantastic for so long but now have to keep trying to add more each day and it is taking a toll on my back and increasing the pain...ugggh!
    Thank goodness for cardmaking, eh?

    We have so many crops around is a mecca of scrapbook shops. There are 2 huge stores that seat over 30 each. They do Friday night 5pm till 11pm is free, the other is 5 dollars. The one I went to is 12 hours long for 5 dollars but is over an hours drive away...I have crafted with some of those girls for 15 years! They are having a 30 hour non-stop crop just before New Years. Each person gets at least a 6 foot table to themselves and you bring a foam mattress or cot and sleep over in the classrooms! We all do potluck for the food.

  35. Love the image and the gorgeous pink and black colour combination Jo. Hope your well.
    Hugs Debbie x
