That's a Whole Lotta Sparkle:


Oh me, oh my!  I am terribly busy.  Busy, busy, busy!  But it is that time of the year - hustling and bustling.  It's the only time of year I don't mind being worn ragged :)

This week's challenge at Papercraft Star is Christmas Trees.  We are open for one week so you have plenty of time to join us.  The wonderful thing about our challenge is you can use any medium you would like! 

  Please pop by the blog and check out the rest of my amazing teamie's creations - you will be blown away by the talent :)

I dusted off an old stamp set and brought out my gems.  I am quite pleased how it turned out - lots of glittery goodness.

Card Ingredients:  Hero Arts Merriest Wishes stamps, Craftsmart Black ink, Recollections gems, K&Co paper, DCWV and Recollections cardstock, Celebrate It ribbon.  Tools:  EK Success corner punch.

I made this card for the following challenges:  Ribbon Carousel - holidays with ribbon, Sweet Stamps - sparkle and bling, Stamping Sensations - treemendous.

And since we are talking Christmas trees - here is my home, complete with our new 10 foot tree and 4 foot wreath:


Have a wonderful day and thanks for the visit.
