Sparkle and Shine at Crafty Gals Corner this week.

Hello creative friends!
I hope you are all on your way to having a great weekend.
Due to some computer and internet issues, this post is a few days late, but as the saying goes, it's better late than never :-)  So, onto our new challenge this week ...

Challenge #77 ~ Sparkle & Shine!

Our sponsors this week are ~ 

Prize: 3 Digital Images


My Besties Shop / Etsy Bestie Store
Prize: 3 digital images as seen below

 Although I'm not very fond of glitter, I do love sparklies and bling :-)  I  made my card, for this challenge, using an image from Lemon Shortbread, called Christmas Carol Angel, and some shiny papers from the Paper Temptress.


Card stock ~ Recollections.
DP ~ Paper Temptress & Bo Bunny
Embossing folder ~ Darice - Snowflake Scroll
Sentiment stamp ~ Great Impressions Stamps
Snowflakes ~ MS Punches
Copic markers were used to colour the image
Wink of Stella pen to add more sparkle
Marvy Snow Marker for 3D snowdrifts effect
Gems are from my stash.

You're probably thinking that I'm a little crazy making Christmas cards in June, but I really need to work on my stash throughout the whole year, or it will be a mad rush in November.  With this in mind, stay tuned because I'm going to have a "Christmas in July" celebration on my blog and there will be Christmas blog candy to be won :-)

Alright, bloggie friends, now it's your turn to grab all your sparkly supplies and join in the fun with us.  You have till noon, CST, on Tuesday, 28 June 2016, to link your project to our challenge #77, "Sparkle & Shine", at Crafty Gals Corner.  Can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Till next time,
Crafty Hugs
