Another great challenge at the Christmas With The Cuties blog! :)

Howdy bloggy friends!  I hope you are all doing well on this Tuesday afternoon.  Here in PA, we keep getting rain.  Rain, rain, RAIN!!!  Where we live, we are pretty much OK, but there are other areas that have been hit pretty hard with flooding.  Hershey Park even had to close due to flooding!  It is supposed to taper off by the end of the week...I sure hope so!  I hope all my PA friends are safe and sound!  

So, I am here today to share my card for the Christmas With The Cuties challenge:  Add Some Sparkle!

I chose a Bugaboo image for my card, and he can be found in this winter bear mini set.   SO CUTE!!  I colored him using alcohol markers, which I chose based on the green snowflake on the designer paper.  The card stock was also chosen to match that shade.  I decided to use that cute green ribbon from my stash to break up the patterned paper a bit.  On the image panel, I added a punched glitter paper snowflake from my bag o'snowflakes in my drawer, and stuck a sugar dot from love, Nicole in the middle.  Stickles adorns the brim and pompom of the bear's hat, and crystal clear Spectrum Noir shimmer pen is on the snow.  Do you think I have added enough sparkle?  LOL!


I'm going with bling, Bugaboo Christmas image, and sparkle.
Edited to add:  I won some images for this entry!  WOOT, WOOT!

Happy Little Stampers Christmas:  ATG or optional Santa twist

I went down the right side of the board, doing glitter, die cut, and card candi...I assume that covers the gem in the middle of the snowflake.

ABC Christmas:  use "N" for name (personalized card), use "O" for on (skates, seigh, etc.)
Simon Says Wednesday:  Use a die and/or punch

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I need to get this linked up, and head off to bed.  Have a good rest of the week, and God Bless!
