It's a blue Christmas with Sparkles Christmas Challenges!

Morning crafters.......hope you're all well!
Can you believe it's December 1st already......oooh, I'm so excited,
I love this time of the year.....all the rushing around, the shopping, the
food lol and the lists......I have lists for everything & anything!
We're putting our Christmas tree up today & once Miss Rebecca gets
in from school we'll decorate it.....if you listen carefully you'll
probably hear us singing along to some Christmas tunes then once 
everyone is home tonight there'll be the 1st mince pie of the
season.........and maybe a small glass of Bailey's too!!
So today I have my Dt make for the last Sparkles Christmas challenge
of the year......our lovely leader Shaz chose the theme, she chose
A nice, easy theme for me cos I love blue for Christmas....... I love tags
too & never have enough so it was an easy choice to make tags!
They were so quick & easy to make too......scraps, a die cut snowflake,
border punch, gems & a piece of ribbon & that's it......done! 
As usual, you can make anything you like just so long as it fits the
theme & you have all month to play.......and for your inspiration we have
some gorgeous Dt makes over on the main blog here.
Our sponsor this month is the fabulous & very generous Marianne design
offering a prize of either 1 stamp/1 die OR 2!
So that's it for today......thanks for calling & whatever you're up to
have a lovely day!
