Christmas Sparkles

Good morning my blogging friends, while this is going live we're getting ready to go to Bobby's football matches, he's playing two games today, hope it stays dry!
It's a new month for Stamping Sensations and Penny black & More @ Allsorts challenges, so if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenge this could be the one for you.

At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is 'Christmas' So get out your Festive Christmas stamps. It's  a new stamp for me, well Bobby won and chose it the last time we went to Lili Of The Valley shop, it was fun colouring and using it, but I'm under strict orders that this card is for Bobby, bless him!
I'm really into using blues this Christmas, which is unusual for me as I don't really like Blue, and don't use it much.

We have sponsorship this Month from

And they are giving the winner a £35 voucher, Wow!

And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.

And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Anything Goes' So you can use anything you want for this challenge.
Aww you can't see all my sparkle, I'm rubbish at taking photo's, I used lots of Glamour dust on my snowflake and image.  Just love these carolling penguins, so cute.

We have prizes from Penny Black, Crafts U Love and My Mums Craft Shop. Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your stamps out isn't it!!!!!!
