It’s the 15th of the month so that means a new challenge over at Sparkles.  Sweet Miss Rebecca has chosen Christmas In July as let’s face it, it’s not really that far away is it!  That’s a scary thought lol!


Here’s my project for this month.


I used a really sweet LOTV stamp called Birdhouses – Bauble and coloured it with Prisma pencils and glitter, lots of glitter! and a dab or two of Liquid Pearls too.   The sentiment is also from LOTV Grunge Christmas set.  The paper are off cuts from an old DCWV stack, the brown card is The Paper Company and the blue is Bazzill.  The dies are both JoyCraft, pearls are from Michaels and the little wooden snowflake was from a blog win earlier in the year.

I hope you can pop over and join us again this month at Sparkles.  We have a fabulous prize up for grabs from our generous sponsor, Marianne Design.
