DT CARD Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #109

Morning everyone, hope you're all well and bet you're looking forward to a lovely weekend.  I'm chuffed because Pete came home unexpectedly last night and will be spending the weekend at home before heading away to work again at the weekend.  Looking forward to some quality family time.!!!!!

We have a another wonderful challenge for you over at the Secret Crafter this week, a HUGE thanks to everyone who took part in our "Red and Gold" challenge.    Set by the lovely Helen, our theme this week is

"Sparkle and Shine"

I've used one of the new Secret Crafter Digital images "Christmas Sledging", available exclusively from the Secret Crafter Store HERE.   Its just sooooo gorgeous, such a super fun image and makes a change from the cuddly Chrimbo critters I have so many of - I love it!!! 

I've used cardstock from my stash and the papers I think are by Papermania.  I coloured with copics and promarkers and used glitter glue to add an icy look to the background.  These products are all available from the Secret Crafter store.

I do NOT know what was going on with my camera when I took this pic - think it could've been the artificial lights in the room - but this card does not really have PINK snow - as if rofl!!!

I'm entering this card into the following challenge ....

Creative Inspirations -  A Pink Xmas

My teamies have come up with some amazing creations this week and you can check them out HERE.   We do hope you can join in the fun and can't wait to see what you come up with.

I'm off to get dressed now and finish my brew in time for 9 o'clock.  I have a date at the post office as soon as it opens to pick up a parcel from Wendy at the Secret Crafter Store - whoo hoooo!  I missed the postie in the week due to working - ggrrrrr!  I've ordered some new die cuts and just can't wait to get my hands on them!!!  I did some experimenting earlier in the week and you can see the results HERE.

Thanks for stopping by - have a lovely weekend.
