LIM #148 and MCS #120

Fortunately my time creating cards is more productive than my Christmas shopping.  Yesterday was a bust as far as gifts go but today I did get the Angel Tree gift that needs to be returned to the church by the 13th. Last year I did a lot of cyber shopping and I may have to take that route again unless I can make a trip to a city where there are infinitely more stores to shop in.  That's the bad thing about living in a small town.

Today's card is for Less is More (Sparkle) and My Craft Spot (Sparkle and Shine).

Okay, I know.  My photography isn't the best.  When you usually take pictures in front of a sunny window and there's no sun, well, this is what you get.  It doesn't even show you the sparkle very well.  It's not the sequins that sparkle, although they do, but the holly leaves that are cut from DCWV glittered paper using a Tim Holtz die.  The sentiment from SSS Signature Christmas, also sparkles with embossing powder.

I have a busy weekend so I'm heading to my craft room now to hibernate (it's 24 degrees out) and make more Christmas cards. Thanks for stopping by.

I'm doing some out-and-about shopping, and some cyber shopping. It all manages to get done. Your card is lovely. It's perfectly CAS, and I can see the sparkle on the holly leaves. Have a great weekend. Bev

Good for you for using your glitter paper and not hoarding it like some people I know : ) Good luck finding those presents! We've resorted to Amazon wish lists ... it's so much easier for the aunts and uncles to pick something and order on-line.

Simple, but uber shimmery and perfectly for the sparkle challenges, Bobby! When I clicked to enlarge I could see the shimmer! Good luck with the shopping. I have so few to buy for that it's super easy. Hugs, Darnell
