Merry Christmas

Hi, I'd like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. 

Thank you so much for your support, encouragement, and friendship during my first year of
blogging. I have learnt so much from so many talented and generous people, about design, new techniques, and about compassion and caring for life's joys and sadness. 
Thank you :) 
I hope 2014 finds us all safe and happy.

A friend wanted a special Christmas card to give to his wife. I hope she likes sparkle and bling!
I used a new die set, Spellbinders min-n-match ornaments with glitter paper. The sentiment and chains are stickers.

I'm linking up to a few challenges.
Scrapbook Boutique has the theme of A Traditional Christmas with this gorgeous picture for inspiration.

Enter Our Challenge - starts 10th each month

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge the theme is Bling it On.

I used snippets of glitter paper for the tree and the snowflake so I'm also visiting the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. The playground is one of the first challenges I ever entered. Di and the playmates are so welcoming and full of fun.

There is lots of inspiration for all of these challenges, so take a break from the busyness of christmas preparation and join in if you can.

Thanks for visiting :)
