Sparkle All The Way

 The new challenge at Try It On Tuesday is Sparkle All The Way, well to me Sparkle means Christmas so my DT entry has to be a Christmas card.  I made the background with Pan Pastels which I have had for years and  and only just started using them again. The Tree with the birds is a Nellie Snellen stamp, Stag is my old favourite from Lavinia, rabbits from Card-io, small trees and wording from Creative Stamping magazine.  The design team have lots of sparkle over on the challenge blog so I hope you will pay them a visit

 The new challenge at Try It On Tuesday is Halloween, lots of spooky examples on the challenge blog from the design team so I hope you will visit them.  I have used stamps from a number of stamp sets to make my little scene, mainly Stampendous and Hero Arts I think, I hve no idea about the witch stamp as I don't havethe packaging.  I quite like making Halloween cards although I don't know why as I never send them to anyone so I have quite a collection made over all the years.

 The new challenge at Try It On Tuesday is Autumn, with the strange weather we keep having I'm beginning to think we don't have seasons anymore, We've been having to put the heating on some days last week then aother days its been really warm, today poured with rain most of the day but was also very warm. The trees are only just starting to change colour round here but there are an amazing amount of berries this year, was always told was a warning of a bad winter to come so we shall see, I'm just happy that both our Rowan trees and and the pyracantha are loaded with berries, the blackbirds are already feasting on the ones right outside my window.  The design team have some lovely samples over on the challenge blog so I hope you will visit them.  My card is a bit of a hotchpotch this time as I forgot to do my design team card until last minute.  The trees are one of my most favourite ever Crafty Individual stamps but all the rest are from an old Creative Stamping magazine.
