Sparkles Forum Christmas Challenge - Angels

Hello blogger :)

its time for another challenge over at Sparkles Forum Christmas Challenge - this month the theme is "Angels"

Below is my DT work

I don't really hand out my handmade christmas cards to that many people, so I have decided to concentrate on tags instead.

Struggled a little to find a nice angel digi, but I think you will agree she is a cutie. The image is "Heartfelt" Angel from Whimsy Stamps.

The sponsor this month is Lily of the Valley.

Thanks for stopping by & look forward to seeing your entries :) xx

Sparkles Christmas Challenge - Christmas Songs

Morning Bloggers.

Time for a new challenge over at sparkles Christmas challenge - this time the theme is "Christmas Songs". As soon as I saw the theme I knew which song I wanted to do - "Christmas Time by the Darkness (I love them and am seeing them live in nov.... cant wait!!!) but it was a real challenge to encorporate it into a card of some sort. Below is what I have come up with.....

The picture is the song cover, and the wording is part of the lyric. i love the blues in this work. added a bit of sparkle to make it a bit more christmassy!

The sponsors this month is Di's digi with 5 digi images up for grabs & Lill of the valley with a £10 voucher.
