Tis the Season to Sparkle-DT card for The corrosive Challenge


Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing the card I made for the new challenge at The Corrosive Challenge Blog.
Challenge #189 Anything Goes. Our last challenge for 2013.
 Is it just me or does December only seem to have half as many days than any other month?
 Not including February which seems to have double the amount of days.
This year has just zipped by!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Lacey Sunshine Stamps. I've chosen Sleepy Holiday Fred Gnome to make this card with.
I've had these Action Wobble Springs that I've been wanting to play with for a while and thought it would make this card all that more fun! I really love interactive cards.
And so easy to use, you just peel and stick!
The paper is from a MME paper pack called Christmas.
I just got a few new die cuts, and had to try out the super dimensional snowflake dies for this card.
 There is a lot of fun and sparkle going on here. 
The sparkly broach looking snowflakes are chipboard snowflakes I picked up from Micheal's. I used glossy accents and Stampendous Frantage silver halo mix glitter, and stacked them.
I love this glitter!
I want to have this glitter as wallpaper!
I've been wanting to use it for weeks and now that I have I want to add it to everything! It's a mixture of fine and chunky holographic glitters.
Since I can remember, glitter has always captivated me.
 I'm sure I have enough glitter to drown in and just last week I realized there is glitter embedded in my PC!(that kind of makes me smile)
I have body tattoo glitter in over 40 colors and a craft drawer chalk-a-block full of bottles and jars of glitters I have collected over the years(all of this mostly untouched and just hoarded!) and I just recently discovered the magic of Ritz Glitz. Yes I know this product has been out for quite a while now but when it first hit the shelves I refused to look at it. The very last thing I was going to buy was more glitter! But who knew this was such a fun glitter? A glitter that stays put and doesn't come off! A glitter that has such an interesting texture to it that you just want to touch it and rub it! Ooohhh another interactive card right there!
I realize now that there's just no such thing as too much glitter! 
I used stardust Ritz Glitz on the bow and crystal glitter on Fred's fur as well as on the holly leaves.
I had a very glitterful week last week as I was blessed with the birth of my 6th grandson! Aidan Elijah! He weighed 7-11 and both he and mommy, Ashley are doing great!

How's all your Christmas prep going?
 Do you ever make yourself an unrealistic list of all the things you hope to get done in time for Christmas? 
 I was going to make some dough art ornaments for a couple people who wanted them to give as gifts.
 I haven't really made much dough art in the last 7 years so I was looking forward to making some this past week. 
But surprise!
 My oven wasn't heating up properly. No wonder my crescent roll taco bake thing didn't bake after an hour and a half!
Good thing I don't do any Christmas baking.
The oven gets replaced next week.
Then a couple days ago my husband surprised me with a trip to Mexico!
 Yayyy going away for 9 days to one of my favorite places!
 We've been in a deep freeze here for the last week with temps of -30, feels like -40 with the windchill so this will be a very welcome get away!
So now I don't know if I'll feel like putting the tree up when we get back, or if Ill have hand made cards to send out, or if I'll even get any dough ornaments made.
Well whatever gets done gets done. I'm not going to stress about it.
 It could be another one of those years where I send out Valentine's cards instead of Christmas cards. 
It happens!
The Corrosive Challenge blog will be back with more great sponsors in the New Year so be sure to link up with this out last challenge of 2013!

Stay warm peeps!
Hasta Luego
