You Will Not Believe This :) xx

It's not at all like me but there is not a bad boy in sight here today.

Yes, not a single Pro Marker has graced my card for this week's Papertake Weekly!! Instead, I used some of the gorge Bazzill card and MME Colourful Christmas papers that the loveliest Tracy over at Dies to Die For sent me.

And as we are being sponsored this week by Heather at Digi Sparkle - fab prize, so check it out if you get a sec ) I used one of their lovely images

Ohh check out these gorgeous colours!!

Not often you'll hear me say this but I actually LOVE this.

So where's the image?
Well it's the tree of course, and I paper pieced it instead of colouring it. Our challenge this week is actually Digi Sparkle so we had to use something digi and add a bit of bling to it.

You can't see it but I outlined the tree with Glamour Dust - some things never change do they lol xxx

Speaking of which, there's a bit of Martha going on here.
Well I couldn't be too different could I lol xx

The fab little blingy stick ons are E-Line Pearls & Crystals which you can get from Dies To Die For and you can see them here.
Great value as well :)

I did the sentiment on the computer and the little clip is from Poppicrafts

I finished it off with some organza ribbon which I got from my local floristry warehouse, and that's that.

I have to say a huge thank you to Sarah for giving me this award as well - thank you hunny xxxx.

I am supposed to pass it on to 5 other lovelies but there is no way I can pick from so many fab peeps, so if you haven't got it and you want it, have it on me :)))x

So that's me done for the day.
Except to say that I am sitting on my hands and biting my lip to keep my trap shut cos there is something I am just dying to share but I can't.

Not yet, at any rate, but very very soon!!!

It's killing me of course, but there ya go!!

Right, I'm off to do a few more bits and bobs before the whirling dervish that is Miss Kyla comes home and chaos ensues.

Have a great evening peeps and I'll see you soon as soon.
Biggest hugs xxxx
