For a Sparkly Christmas!


Hello!   It seems like ages since I have been able to post a card.  I don’t know what I would do without this wonderful hobby or my equally wonderful friends here ~ both have helped so much to make it through these past few weeks.  I can’t tell you enough how much your kindness means to me!    🙂

I thought this cutie would be great for a Sparkly Christmas card for any young girl on your card list.   This is Sandy from InStyle Stamps, one of the new holiday images.   Sandy is available for immediate download on the ISS site!   It really is so awesome to be able to get these digi images right away ~ instant gratification.


 The paper used is from the Club Anime card kit by Bo Bunny.   I thought it would be fun to color her outfit in a pinkish-peach color, rather than the traditional red.   And, pink seems to be THE hot color for this Christmas season, even Basic Grey’s new eskimo kisses has lots of pink patterns.   I also added lots of Stickles in silver, although I ended up wiping some away to try to match it to the silver on the dp.   The card is definitely VERY sparkly IRL!

Thanks for visiting.   Hope you’re having a great week!         Hugz ~ Mary
