Glitter n Sparkle - Blog Hop - and Candy!

Hello, everyone!  Lots of excitement today!  It's our 3rd Birthday over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog and we are celebrating in a big way! In addition to our challenge, we're having a Blog Hop!  And many of the DT are offering Candy, including me! There's a HUGE prize on the Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog, and that's in addition to our regular prizes, so you will definitely want to check it out!

I've got a lot to share today so I'll start with the challenge.  This week our theme is Add a Charm or Lots of Glitter.  For my card, I used the adorable and fun Crabby Cat Christmas from Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  Just look at his crabby face! He's so grumpy - I laugh every time I look at him!  I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils and added Flower Soft on his hat and white glitter along the snow.

I wanted a funny sentiment to go along with this fun image so I created one in Microsoft Word. Crabby Cat says, "Just wait until you see the little present I left under the tree!" I'm sure you can imagine what that little gift might be, hehe! Here's a list of other products used:
  • Ribbon:  Lace (May Arts), ribbon (Offray)
  • Die:  Speech bubble from Lawn Fawn - A Birdie Told Me
  • Embossing folder: Darice Snowflakes
  • Glitter cardstock and tape:  Dollarama
  • Charm:  Stash (I used my wire cutters to clip off the top)
  • Other:  White Flower Soft on hat, white glitter along snow

Decosse's Dynamite Doodles said...

What an adorable card Kitty! I did try to edit the link up to reflect that you qualified for the draw but I guess because the link up is officially closed it wouldn't allow me to do so. However, it is no big deal, I have made note of it and you will be included in the draw for the sponsor's prize. Thanks for letting me know and thanks for joining us over at The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up!
