Crafty Calendar Challenge - Sparkle, Bling & Embellish

 Good Morning all.  I hope you are all well on this cold rainy November day.
Well Halloween & Bonfire Night have been and gone so it's time that I started thinking about making a start on my Christmas crafting.

For a few years I've made Christmas decorations and candles that I sell to raise funds for my Brownie unit and I always say I will start making these earlier in the year so that it's not a mad rush finishing the items off the day before the Christmas Fayre......seeing as I haven't made any yet I don't think this year will be any different, but at least with this months challenge card I've made a start on my Christmas cards.

It's the first Saturday in the month so the a new challenge over at

Crafty Calendar is
Sparkle, Bling and Embellish.

For my card I have used

  • Valerie with Snowball by Mo Manning from Stamping Bella coloured with copics.
  • The background is kraft card and I have added some sparkle using the Imagination Crafts Multi Snow Dots Stencil with Aurora Sparkle Cosmic Shimmer Texture Paste.
  • The Snowflakes are die cut using the Memory Box Precious Snowflake die with a little gem in the centre for added sparkle.


We are sponsored for this challenge by Brenda's Lace & Ribbon Specials

Pop over to Crafty Calendar and share your Sparkly, Blingy and embellished creations and check out the gorgeous cards by the calendar girls.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon...
