Sparkle and Shine

Feeling pretty pleased as I have managed to meet three challenges with this card.

It began with the challenge at CD Sunday for Sparkle and shine. I had my home made blue glitter paper left over from another project I thought it would look good as a night sky and even more snippets to use for the tree tinsel and present which are dies from Sue Wilson Shadow box.
The tree paper is left over from another card here and is from Ooh la la Shawn Jenkins Christmas collection. The snowflakes sparkle too as they are cut from an offcut of some glitter card. I added some frost dawn embossing to the window frame using Lisa Hortons Christmas stamps.

I used a CC sentiment and the tree is a sticker from Anna Griffin which I have been wanting to use up for ages. Santa is a die from Sue Wilson.

I'm entering into the CD Sunday challenge and the Allsorts challenge Oh Christmas tree. As I have used snippets from my box I'm also off to the snippets playground.

I fell heavily on my back yesterday amongst the space and clutter that is my craft area! Enough is enough - I need to actually dedicate the space and get rid of other things in there. I've been considering it for a while, but yesterday was literally a wake up call as I still ache, and it could have been a lot worse.

Wonderful card Lynn! I really love the vision of Santa through the window - must remember that idea!

Take care of that back, I know only too well how rotten it is to struggle with issues. Mind you, am due a huge sort out in the craft room as well so who am I to talk?!

I love window scene Christmas cards - in fact have some windows already die cut to do just that. A lovely scene with plenty of sparkle. Thank you for joining in with us.

I love the effect of looking through the window and seeing Santa. It's all beginning to feel very Christmassy. I hope you have recovered from your fall.
