With Love at Christmas !

Happy Halloween everyone! I'm so glad it's the weekend! What a busy week at work it's been. Let's hope next week is much calmer. Well I've got a great crafty day planned. My mum is having a SU party at her house which will be held by the wonderful Jules! I'm really looking forward to it, and my mum has made some pumpkin muffins. Now I've never had these before, but I love muffins so I'm sure they'll be yummy!

Onto today's card. I haven't used this stamp in what feels like ages so I dug it out and dusted it off for this card {I made 2 of these cards actually, whilst I had everything out I though I might as well!}. All of the bubbles/spots have been coloured with my whisper pens before adding coloured glitter glue. I had to leave them to dry overnight which I found really difficult as when I normally make a card I do it all in one sitting! But it was well worth the wait as I love the sparkly effect! I am entering this card into two of this weeks challenges. At Papertake Weekly they want to see spots and stripes and over at Simon Says Stamp the challenge this week is 'All That Sparkles'!

Here's a bit of an arty farty angle, which I don't usually do but I thought it would show you the sparkle a bit more.


Materials:


Image: Christmas Bubble Tree from Woodware

Paper: Craftwork cards Plum Pudding

CS: from stash

Sentiment: Craftwork Cards

Tools: distress inks, sponges, EK Success dotted wave border punch

Misc: Stickles glitter glue in red, green, copper, gold and irredescent


Well thanks for stopping by today. I hope you all have a great weekend whatever you're up to! I'm off to get ready for my SU afternoon! Yay!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~

This is gorgeous Vicky, love the way you've coloured the tree with all that yummy sparkle..... and you've just reminded me that I have this stamp lurking somewhere, so I'd better blow the dust off mine too, lol!
Have great fun tonight and try not to spend too much!
