Sparkles a plenty

I hope everyone isn't too busy on the run up to Christmas and is finding some 'me' time to do a little crafting. This weeks challenge over at Cupcakes I would like peeps to make a project with lots and lots of bling, the shinier  and sparklier the better :)  

We are happy to say that we have two sponsors this week both offering great prizes. Firstly  Cupcake Cards and Crafts  with a prize of a paper collection of the winners choice and also sponsored by Saturated canary who are kindly offering two digi images of the winners choice. I was going to make a card with a fab saturated canary  digi image but had a few technical problems this end which put a sto to it :( any way I hope you like the card I did make using a pre coloured image by Mo Manning. Hopefully you can pick up that I have used sparkles a plenty on the card by adding, glossy accents, glamour dust, stickles , a shiney bell and a fab snowflake pin encrusted in diamonds (well looky likeys) :) 
Ribbon, pin and bell are from the Ribbon Girl.
Hope you will agree we have two fab sponsors so to be in with a chance join in  x

Option of something dangly :)

Over at Papertake weekly the theme is anything goes with an added option of adding something dangly. I made this card on a weekend away with some lovely ladies, using Molly Bloom and stamping Up stamps, holly leave  punch and a star spellbinders.  I hand cut a heart and sprinkled it with glitter and added it onto the wreath with button twine (from the Ribbon Girl) .
I used lots of Kraft and glossy accents to add sheen.

The idea of the wreath came from Molly Bloom creator Clare Rowlands.

Going round in Circles.

I made this card at a crafty weekend away. The lovely Gail gave me a die cut mouse from one of her new cricut cartridges.

I added a few glittery heart and star. I lost his little nose so stuck on the end of a bead pin :)
The papers are the scrumptious papers by My Mind Eye.
