I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...

... or maybe just one that's not dreadfully hot :)
I'm back with another post, 2 in one day, I don't know what has gotten in to me. I think it's the general Christmas rush and panic rubbing off on everything else, I am already feeling like there are not enough hours in the day and i guess it will only get worse.
I'm back with my Xmas Sweeties, I think by Christmas the rubber might be worn away on these little darlings, they are definitely getting a work out!
So, every white surface on this card has been glittered. It shows a little in the photos but in real life it is amazing. I have stamped a 'Be Merry' sentiment next to Anya in silver and then went over the lettering in glitter, and then stamped a small 'Merry Xmas' sentiment across the front of the card, also in silver. The snowflakes are a Martha Stewart punch and the other 'snowflake' shapes are a spellbinders Fleur De Lis Die. Here is my sparkly little Ian, I am experimenting with a new colouring technique so he is a little bolder and brighter that he has been in the past.

Anya and a glimpse of the previously obscured 'Be Merry' sentiment
This card plays along with:
Anya Ink - Christmas
Bizzy Becs Creatalicious Challenge - Christmas, snowflakes, sparkle (you know the drill, this is my 4th entry :) )
Crazy 4 Challenges - Punch Happy
Creative Card Crew - Favourite Things (glitter, glitter and more GLITTER!)
Wow, 6, that's got to be a personal best :)
Thank you for looking and leaving your lovely comments, I read and enjoy them all.
