Digital Tuesday "Sparkling Christmas"

It's my turn to choose the challenge at Digital Tuesday this week and as I still have loads of Christmas cards to make, I thought I would make it another Christmas challenge.  know you must all be sick of Christmas cards by now and I am too, but I'm sure there is lots of you who like me still need to make some.
I love adding sparkle to my Christmas cards, so my challenge is "Sparkling Christmas".

Our sponsor this week is Fairy Dust Crafts who also gave the design team some images to play with and I used the Santa Snowglobe image on my card.

This must be one of the worst cards I have ever made! I really don't like it, but I just didn't have time to make another one.
The image is sweet though :) I coloured it with Promarkers then added loads of Dazzling Diamonds glitter. You can't see it very well in this rubbish scan, but there is glitter on Santa's beard and white of his hat, the snow on the ground and also the snow that is falling.
I was intending on making a shaker card with this image but I didn't because I knew I wouldn't be able to get a photo of it since I don't have a working camera just now.
My plan was to print the image big and use it as the shape of the actual card, then add some acetate and have the snow falling inside the globe..... I think it would look really good... maybe I will try it another time :)

The papers are from a paper pad I got a few weeks ago free with a magazine but I can't remember who makes them and I can't be bothered getting my papers out again to check lol.
The ribbon and pearls (which are actualy pink) are from my stash and the snowflake is a sizzix die cut  done on mountboard and I added some stickles around the edges.

That;s it from me for now.
My blog candy is still running until tommorrow so you still have time to enter if you haven't already!
I am just away to go moderate all my comments because I haven't done it for a few days. It's so annoying that I have to moderate them because of all the stupid spam! I'm even getting spam messages on my chat box in my sidebar and think I will have to remove that for now as well....... why do these people even bother sending spam messages? Some of them I have been getting recently are really rude and well just disgusting to be honest. I have no idea why people waste their time writing that kind of rubbish, and they always have a hundred links on them which nobody is going to click on.... most are messages are asking if I want to enlarge something and considering I am not a man, I think I would be really strange if I had one in the first place, never mind wanting to enlarge it!! LOL

Thanks for stopping by and remember to check out my candy! The post is at the top of my blog or you can click the link in my sidebar to take you there.
