A New Challenge!!!!

Hiya everyone, ooh we have the sun trying to peek through here but it is pretty nippy out.  Pete's at home today and is hoping to get in the garden later and clear some stuff.  I'm going to watch from inside the house as I'm off work at the mo with a painful chest infection, it don't feel so bad today so hopefully I'm on the mend!!  Not been nice when it hurts to breathe!!

Today I have some exciting news, today sees the launch of a new Christmas Challenge blog run by my blogging buddy Shaz, on behalf of the Sparkles Forum, and aptly named Sparkles Christmas Challenge.

We are a monthly Christmas challenge blog and have some wonderful prizes lined up this, our FIRST challenge, so please join us over at the Sparkles Christmas Challenge Blog, just think how ahead you could get with your Christmas cards, gifts and decorations this year!!
Please feel free to grab and display our banner, spreading the word.

For our first challenge we would like to see................
Christmas Trees

A nice and easy challenge to get us warmed up and, as we're a multi craft challenge, it's ripe for all kinds of creations.
 My fabulous DT buddies have lots of inspiration to share with you over on the challenge blog so please do check it out.  Here's my humble offering....

We are have THREE fabulous prizes for our 1st challenge...

Pink Gem Designs with a prize of 4 Digi's

Joanna Sheen with a £10 voucher

And DT Shaz, also has a special prize for one lucky winner.

I have used 'Christmas Tree' from Pink Gem Designs on my card and attempted a style thats a bit out of my usual comfort zone but I'm pretty pleased with the result.

We also have something else going on with the challenge blog, you can vote for your 'Designer of the Month' over on the Sparkles Christmas Challenges Designer of the Month Blog, so if you've always wanted to have a say on a DT's piece of work this is your chance.


We do hope you'll be able to join us for our fun Christmas challenges.
