Happy Monday everyone!!
We finally have snow!!  Granted it's not supposed to stay...but it still made a beautiful morning :)
Our weekend was packed with Christmas gift construction :)  It's hard to believe that our Christmas vacation is just a week and a half away!  Where on earth did the time go!?
How about you?  What gifts are you making this year?  Did you plan far enough ahead to get them all done in time?  I struggle with that somethings.  I always think I'll have more time than I actually do and then I end up pressed for time and pulling all nighters just to get them all :)

We're starting a new challenge theme this week at Digi Makeover and it's Sparkle!!  Who doesn't just love to add loads of sparkle to their cards?  Especially those Christmas cards!  Honestly, I'm not sure I ever make a card without having something sparkly on it :)
I added loads of glitter and stickles to this card.  The image I used is Madelyn from Paper Makeup.  I double matted her with blue and white cardstock and added blue stickles around the outside.

I punched out a few snowflakes and double layered them under large blue gem brads.  The large star is cut with my Cameo and I covered that with glitter as well :)  Then I printed and cut out the circle sentiment and adhered that to the center of the star.

Once everything was dry, I arranged all the snowflakes and star in the upper corner and decorated around them with a variety of blue gems.  I also dotted some more stickles around the blue paper for added sparkle :)

I hope you will join us this week at Digi Makeover!  The only requirement is that you use a digi!  Be sure to check out the rest of the makeup artists creations as they are absolutely fabulous!!
