Santa's Little Helpers

 I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely restful weekend, or have you been bust Christmas shopping and putting up Christmas trees.
This is a challenge post for House Mouse and will be our Last Challenge of 2014 and it will run all the way through to January 3rd, 2015. That gives you an entire month to play for your chance to WIN some great prizes from not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4 BUT 5! Yes, 5 Wonderful Sponsors!

OK so I wouldn't usually go for purple/lilac for a Christmas card, I'm the traditional red and green kind of girl.  But this is another card my daughter has asked me to make for her friends, she asked for purple and sparkly.  Never thought I would be using lilac gingham ribbon on a Christmas card.  I glossed the bauble which you can't see, and there's lots of my favourite Christmas product Glamour Dust, I need some more of that, not getting low.  Can't say I'm really impressed by this but it made a change for me.

So for the theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge,  is "Christmas & New Year" -
Of course you must use a House MouseHappy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.

Lilac Christmas works very well for me as an alternative to the traditional Tracy, I think sparkle and glitter go very well with lilac.
