How fantastic to be asked by the lovely Debbie at
The Crafty Pad to be a Guest Designer for this week's Challenge - "Christmas Sparkle and Ribbon". Thanks so much Debbie - you know how excited I was!!
I have used one of Debbie's new Christmas stamp sets - Percy & Parker with Banner and separate greeting. If you pop over to The Crafty Pad you will see the full range of stamps designed by Debbie, including the fabulous new Christmas ones. (Debbie's stamps are available to purchase, with free p&p).
I have used red Bazzill cardstock, white card embossed with Swiss Dots CB folder, CB snowflakes, Nesties, ribbons from my stash, and a sprinkling of Glamour Dust (I think I'm addicted to it)!! Percy & Parker were coloured with Copics, and Stickles glitter glue, then cut out and curved slightly and attached with silicone glue to give a 3-d effect.
So, get out that ribbon and glitter and join in the fun! The prize is a 1-week GDT spot, and a stamp which the DT will be working with.
Hugs, Sylvia xxxxxxxx

Percy and Parker are looking mighty fine in your capable hands.
I love the way you have offset the two scalloped circles against each other, it really makes the central image pop out of the card. I love the colour scheme and the bobbly embossed snow.
Huge congratulations on being such a star designer for the Crafty Pad, you had a lovely write up on the blog.
lots of love

Love the use of ribbon and fibre together. It really lifts the card our of the ordinary - not that any you do are 'ordinary' but you know what i mean - it now extra special.
