It's only yesterday that I realised how busy I am going to be this week... next Monday kids will be starting school again.. still got loads of things to prepare..... hubby is going to repaint our younger son's bedroom since it still had Mickey Mouse plastered all over and so lots of cleaning.. and on Friday morning I'm off to Amsterdam for the weekend!!! Yikes... not for Amsterdam of course.. I'm looking forward to that :)) .. but for all the things I have to do .. this besides some DT Cards which I still have to do.. really hope I won't have to stay overtime this week as well!

Anyway, I have a really sparkly card today to show you now and it's my DT Card for the new Stamp Fairy Challenge. The theme for this fortnight is SPARKLE. I had immediately thought of Christmas when I saw this theme and so a Christmas Card I did using the cute Barry Winter.

Wasn't sure which photo I liked best, if this one that I took in the sun.. 

.. or this one taken in the shade... so me always finding it difficult to decide kept them both ha ha 

I cut the stars with my Die-Namics die, the sparkly strips are Papermania and the Christmas tree is from Mic Crafts. I coloured my image with my promarkers . Had so much fun making this card ... I do think I got carried away a bit though with the sparkle. There is it all over the edges, on the stars, on the sparkly strips.. 

..  in the snow and on Barry's hat and scarf as well. Still.. I really loved how it turned out. So fun I think.

These are my challenges for today.
