Greetings all! Today is the last day of my sickleave, so it's back to work tomorrow for me. There goes my free time!!! So you will understand that there wont be daily blogs from me in the near future. As a single mother of 4 boys and working 2 jobs, free time does not feature much in my life! For today's card, I have dusted off my House Mouse Christmas stamps, for Scoopy's challenge over at House Mouse Challenge The theme is "Sparkle on your Christmas creations." Due to the very bad light at this time of the year in Finland, and the fact that I only have a very basic camera, it is really hard to get anything to sparkle!!! However, in real life, it sure does. As usual, I OD'd with glitter! :D Both the image and the sentiment are from HOUSE MOUSE, which I have coloured with Promarkers. I realise now that those fine nib attachments are going to have to be on my next shopping list! The backing paper has embossed stars on it which sparkle, I think is from Forever Friends. The lacey edge is punched with my MS punch and I have blinged it up with half pearls and ribbon. The decorations and the stocking top are glittered with Stickles. Thanks for looking and here's wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Hi Jill, what a stunning card you have created. The stamp is so sweet, and love the pink on your holiday card. The ornaments look so pretty, and sparkle is hard to capture on camera, even with the best you can buy. Thanks for sharing with us at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. Lovely.
