Penny Black at Allsorts

The theme at the Penny Black at Allorts challenge this month is "Glitter and Glitz". There is also a DT call along with this month's challenge and I've put my name down - fingers' crossed!

I am still in Christmas Card mode and, for me, a Christmas card generally means lots of glitter!

I love this image, I can't help but feel happy looking at this little mouse doing his happy dance in the snow!

Here's what I used to make this card:-

Image and sentiment from Penny Black "T" for Transparent set "Holly Day Critters"
Base card blank from Craftwork Cards
Designer Papers from Papertrey Ink "Rustic Snowflakes"
Nestabilities large classic square, large classic circle, large scallop circle
Nestabilities tag trio
Lots of Glamour Dust applied with the help of a Quickie Glue Pen
Copic Ciao and Sketch for colouring (B0000, G85, G94, R27, R29, E50, E51, E53, E93, E47)
Brilliance "Moonlight White" ink to edge the largest piece of designer paper.
Gems from stash

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you are enjoying your weekend. It's wet, wet, wet here so we are all having a relaxing stay at home day.

Hugs, Clare xx

Hi Clare

I'm well impressed you are in Crimbo mode.

I have literally just returned from Stampalot - apparently missed Chris by inutes, bad planning on our part. Got my new Christmas Hero stash ready for the demo day, so need to get my mojo working.

A lovely card here, I still think the traditional colours take some beating.

Thank you for joining in atPenny Black at Allsorts and good luck.

Thanks for the how to on making your card go further. Clever idea and it works perfectly. Your card is gorgeous and such pretty colours.

I'm sorry I've not visited for a little while. I had VIP visitors, Lol, (daughter and granddaughter) for a little while and had no time to visit my fave blogs. I have looked at all your beautiful Christmas cards though. They are all stunning, every single one!
