Today's challenge is SPARKING CHRISTMAS - use some sparkle of your Christmas gift/cards and the Sponsor for this weeks challenge is FAIRY DUST CRAFTS.

Firstly I have to apologise as I didn't use a Fairy Dust image which had been my intention.  Like everyone else this last couple of week's have been so hectic.  I'm not moaning but I've had visitors everyday and relatives staying.  My Brother and two of his children stayed at the weekend the youngest was three so no crafting.  Then this morning another visitor staying for a couple of days.

Any way going back to subject in hand had already coloured Kenny K image so decided to use for this project as earlier project was disastrous.

Coloured image with copics and spica pens.

I used a Magnolia die for the doily edges, and Marianne dies for the corner embellishment and snowflakes.

To complete this gift tag I added ribbon and stickles glitter glue to the corner and snowflakes.

Hope you like this glitzed up gift tag and for more inspiration and wonderful ideas please check out the other DT members blogs, their creations are just gorgeous.

Best wishes,

Yet another image from Mo Manning.  This one is called "reach for the star" and is so versatile, I'm using as a Christmas card this time.  I quite like to brown tones at the moment so this has finished up as monochromatic.  I used Copic pen to colour this image and stickles glitter for texture to highlight the land part of the globe.

The backing papers were all scraps left over from previous projects.

I embossed the edges of the image with gold embossing powder and then added stickles.

The flourish embellishments were cut with Marianne dies and I used a brad and a couple of pearls to complete this project.

Hope you like as this is such an adorable image.

Best wishes,
