A little bit of sparkle.... -well quite a bit really

I don't usually go for sparkly stuff on my cards ,maybe just a smidge of  clear glitter glue is my limit, but this week's challenge at requires a bit of sparkle  so I had to be brave and go for the blingy stuff !
The cute Elf image is from .
My sparkle was some posh wrapping paper that i bought last year - it was going cheap as many people had taken it back asking for a refund as nothing would stick to it - so all the presents were coming unstuck !
It really is super glittery  and i had to gut the mats and stick from behind as my layers would nt stick to it either !
I cut the words using SCAL on my cricut and had to use glossy accents to stick the mirri card to the glitter paper

I adore snowmen and many of my cards this year will feature them , now the hardest part of this week's challenge at I♥ promarkers was deciding which one of the many cards i had made this week, was to be  used as my DT cards for our challenge.
We want to  see your snowmen creations (not real ones as the promarkers won't work on them )
I used this cute little guy from LOTV  , the bracket shaped card was covered in freebie papers that i had put in my stash box- of course i don't know where they came from  !
The square panel one is a particular favourite of mine so if anyone out there recognises it can you let me know !

Morning all. .. it is blooming freezing here today  so it's perfect for telling you about  our latest challenge at, this week we want to see your "Icy Colours "

I have used a Lili of the valley stamp  coloured with icy grey promarkers  , the giant snowflake is another from my cricut and the tiny snowflakes are the "waste " from the Martha Stewart border punch around the edge of the mat.I added  "Icicle" stickles  glue inside each of the snowflakes for added sparkle

I♥PROMARKERS challenge39-Snowflakes

 I used my cricut for this one ,and as the snowflake is so pretty and detailed  I did nt want to cover it right up with an image so I made sure this little guy was positioned just enough to one side to show off the snowflake .This is a bit of a quick post as I have to go to work in a few mins and then I'm off out tonight , so chances are it would n't get done at all otherwise
