Sparkles at Gem of a Challenge and some NEWS!

I have been in my craft room most of the day, working on some DT things, to show at a later date, but thought I would blog this card for Gem of a Challenge - CH#107 Sparkles.  I have a long time love affair with Janet's creations, so just had to play, with Winter Chloe

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

The Crafter's Cafe - Anything Goes
Crafting by Designs - Christmas or Winter
I love Promarkers - CH#196 - Anything Goes (must use Promarkers)

Using - Scribble Designs - Birdhouse 06 (which you can buy here)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Rhedd and Rosie - Ch#20 - Christmas is Coming
Through the Craft Room Door - Always Anything Goes
Crafting from the Heart - CH#1 - Anything Goes

Those off you who visit my blog, quite often, may have seen a badge on the right-hand side of my blog, for a new challenge coming at the beginning of 2014 - Open-Minded Crafting Fun.   Well the Badge has changed...I have been accepted as part off their DT...Yeah...I can tell you that I am over the moon, as Vicky and Susan, have managed to get a whole host of new Sponsors, which is very exciting..I am also looking forward to getting to know my new team-mates.   Yesterday on the Blog, Susan Showcased one of the Sponsors - Scribbles Design, who gave a freebie, for yesterday only and I hope that for my FB friends, you managed to get it...I did and the above card is what I made.  If you have not done so already, it would be great if you could pop over and follow the Open-Minded Crafting Fun.

I have my grandchildren for a couple off days from Dundee, then I have a 21st Birthday party on Saturday night, so I will leave you for now, love and hugs to all xxx
