Sparkles Christmas Challenge DT card and Blog Hop


I have been asked to join Sparkles Christmas Challenge blog DT which is really great for me because I get to make Christmas things all year and hopefully I will have enough cards made when the festive season arrives.  For my first challenge I am participating in their blog hop so there are some fab prizes to be won along the way and it is their very first birthday - so celebrations all the way!

The challenge for this month is Christmas Anything Goes.  Pop along to the challenge blog for details of the challenge, the prizes and the start of the blog hop.  If you have found your way to my blog as part of the blog hop you should have come here from Jo's blog - A little piece of me.


For my prize I have a selection of Christmas papers and goodies which have been donated by DT member Shaz. You need to leave a comment on all of the DT blogs, then leave your entry and link to your own blog on Sparkles Christmas Challenge blog to be eligible to win a prize.  When the blog hop closes on the 27th February 2012 each of the DT will randomly pick a comment to win the prize on their blog.

So, once you leave a comment on this post, it will be time for you to visit Shaz's Crafty Corner.  Good luck and happy blog hopping!



Now, onto my card .... I love this cute little penguin who was from Bugaboo Stamps - I've coloured him with pro markers.  The papers are from a Dovecraft Christmas Back to Basics pad which I got half price in the sale a couple of weeks ago and I've used a Spellbinders labels die.  The card candi is from Craftwork Cards.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Fab n Funky - Use a digi
Lollipop Crafts - Anything goes
Alphabet Challenge - Zoo animals

Thanks for visiting today,

Amanda
