A card for Sparkle's challenge. Hi all, this is such an adorable, easy to colour image from Sparkle's illustrator 'celebrating Chloe' (and a fab win thankyou) and she's enjoying christmas celebrations, comes with 3 balloons, I masked off the one at the top but guess what she's still holding 3 strands ( oh well a lesson for next time), colored with Promarkers and I used a couple of colours from my win over at Pollycrafts 'thankyou so much', hand cut out shape using my inexpensive scallop scissors. Papers are a mix from old Kaboodle Doodles and Pink Petticoat, tag sentiment stamp free with mag.

Challenges entered are mainly christmas themed... Sparkle Creations 'christmas in July' as are Stamp something, Craft Us Crazy, CES, Crafty Pad, Secret Crafter 'holidays', Winter Wonderland 'give a little lift...wet/dry embossing', Totally Papercrafts 'girly girly', Pixie Cottage as usual is a sketch and theme (went with theme of wrap it with ribbon), Crafty catz 'tags', Simon Says 2nd entry 'anything goes', I Love Promarkers 2nd entry '1 ribbon, 2 dp's, 2 buttons', Cute Card Thursday 'going round in circles', and Cupcake Craft are celebrating their 150th challenge, theme is to choose one from their past...i chose challenge 59 'time for a celebration'. That's it for now, lovely sunshine when it shines but we've got much needed downpours today too, enjoy a fab Sunday bye for now.
