A Christmas critter with a touch of glitter at Sparkles Christmas!

Morning lovelies........hope you're all well!
Back to normality today, or as normal as it'll ever be in my house lol!
Today I'm sharing my 1st make of 2015 and yes, it's a Christmas card...
it's never too early.........I'm SO gonna be ready this year!
I do have to apologise to my teamies over at Sparkles Christmas Challenges
as I should have blogged my card on January sorry ladies,
time just ran away with me! Our challenge this time is
We're so chuffed to have 2 sponsors this time....7 digis from Bugaboo 
and a fabulous £10 voucher from Crafters Companion
For my card I used a sweet topper from LOTV layered onto some papers
that I got free with a mag, a LOTV sentiment & a little wooden star....
......quick & easy and nice & flat for posting too!
As usual, there's some gorgeous inspiration over on the main blog.. pop over if you have won't be disappointed!
Not sure what to do today......should I get on with the housework..
......or sit at my desk & enjoy the peace and quiet.....maybe that's not
such a touch decision after all lol. Thanks for calling & whatever you're
 up to......have a lovely day!
