Dare To Be Sassy Thursday #101 - Christmas Sparkle



December has finally arrived and holiday preparations are in full swing here! I can't believe the countdown to Christmas has begun... I'm in good shape with cards as not everyone gets a hand-made one. I do photo cards of the small man as well, of course! We had them taken at Target again this year, with Santa, and despite having a less than cooperative child, I was pleased with the end result. I really like their work there, and with a coupon the prices aren't all that bad. Plus I earned $50 off a future purchase! Woo hoo! Their customer service is excellent - without hesitation they re-ordered my cards TWICE due to typos and then gave me free photos when I came in to pick them up! Impressive! And I work in customer service so I should know!

But anyway, enough about THOSE cards and on to this one! It's time for another Dare To Be Sassy Thursday over at Sassy Studio Designs and this week the theme is Holiday Sparkle! We want to see your creations sparkle, shimmer, and shine! It could be glitter, jewels, foil.... whatever pretty, shiny things you have in your crafty stash is okay by us! I opted for glittered designer paper and adhesive rhinestones. The image is a sweet one from last year's holiday collection simply called "The Nutcracker". She is colored with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers and the highlights on her dress are a white gel pen. I embossed one panel with snowflakes and added a few flowers and punched branches for texture. The layout is courtesy of MMSC132 over on the priscillastyles blog. The Midnight Madness sketches always have two versions to choose from, and I selected the fancy one here.

Please stop by the Sassy Studio Designs blog for all the challenge details on how you can play along to win 2 Sassy Studio Designs images of your choice. You don't have to use a SSD image to play along, but we love it when you do! Also, you'll want to check out the lovely creations of my fellow design team mates while you're there! Plus don't forget to check out the December Sassy Christmas Challenge, which started today!

I hope you are all having a fabulous week so far! Thanks for taking the time to visit! I love hearing from you so please feel free to leave a comment! I {heart} them! lol Enjoy your day and happy crafting!
