Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge - Make 'em Sparkle


I am so excited as our first challenge starts today over at the Wags 'n Whisker blog. Your stamps have arrived...? so come on over and play with us!!!

We have some great news too in that the very talented Chris Olsen is joining our team. I love Chris's gorgeous creations and if you haven't checked out her blog before... you must!!!

Our first challenge is hosted by the lovely Karen. Karen is asking you to make 'em sparkle. What a great first challenge and with so many seasonal cards to make a perfect one too!!!

The cutie image used on my card is Ride 'em Ryan. This image is so versatile and is great for general cards and Christmas too!!! I used the fabulous sketch by Sonja which is this weeks A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge - yep late again ;-) This sketch fitted in perfectly with my card today... thanks Sonja.

Now to make my card sparkle I used the gorgeous papers from MME Signature Christmas Glitter Stack. This stack is so luxurious!!! I also added some stickles sparkle to the brads.

My image is stamped in Momento and then coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. The Howdy little Partner sentiment is from the Pink Cat Studio Sweet Pea Plate 2.

As always the teams cards are such eye candy!!! Be sure to check them out at the Wags 'n Whisker blog.

I have a friend popping round for coffee this morning but hope to have a little play time with my new distress inks. I am hoping to use them on Sunday's High Hopes card... if I am brave enough to show you that is!!!

Be back later today with a stock update as we have lots of new goodies arriving in the store :-)
