Sparkly Winter Wishes!

I hope you are all having a fab weekend, I went crafty shopping yesterday & got one Promarker & I only got that because it ran out on Friday!!! whats that all about? Nige says its because I've already got everything lol!!! Not a chance lol!!!

It's time for a new challenge over at Sparkles where this time we want to some


on your creations!
I really didn't have time to make a card this time! Really busy will my squealable news, which I'm hoping I will be able to tell you in a week or so!!
I really don't like letting anyone down, even tho after speaking to Angel she told me not to worry.....thanks hunnie xxx
So I decided to use another one of the samples I made at the demo I did last week!! I have added sparkle to the fern leaves but I have taken about 20 photos, even Nige had ago & because I haven't put loads & loads on you can't see it! But I promise you its there!!!
