1 Dec 2011


Hi all today is not only the 1st December but also the start of our new weekly challenge at
the theme this week is to use 
for my DT card I have used the Santa image available from
I certainly piled on the sparkle with this one, the papers are from Bearlymine, I have highlighted the centres of the snowflakes and swirls with silver glitter, I also used the glitter for Santa's fur bits, I have mounted the papers onto black card, the image I coloured with Copics then cut out and used silicone to 3'd him, I then added some black ribbon and a sentiment which I distressed with TH ink.
This card is actually winging it's way across the miles as we speak.
I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I do hope that you like my card and that you will come join our challenge this week at
I want to thank each and every one of you with all my heart, that left me messages about my little dog Polo, I took him to the Vets who suggested that I put him on some new tablets to see if they would help.
This was a reprieve for me and I feel that I am a bit of a coward but I desperately wanted to keep my Po with me.  I have until a week today to see if there is any improvement. 
You have all been so kind and understanding, you will never know just how much you mean to me, the support you have shown is truly wonderful and I thank you so very, very much.
I have been doing some of my DT commenting but I will be visiting you all it just might take a day or two to catch up so please be patient with me, lol.
Love & Hugs to all.
