Hi and welcome to everyone who visits my Blog - hope you are having a great weekend, and looking forward to "I'm a Celebrity" which starts tonight (or am I the only blogger who loves that programme)?!!!!
Well, this is week 2 of my 6-week GDT spot with the lovely Debbie and her Design Team, over at The Crafty Pad.  Hope you will all join in this week's fun Challenge as it's Recipe Time (a bit like Chico Time, but different)!!  The Recipe is:-
1 Circle, 2 Ribbons, 3 Papers, 4 Gems, and some sparkle -  we couldn't live without a bit of sparkle could we crafters?  Your entry may be a card, an ATC, altered art etc., and if you use a Crafty Pad stamp your name will be entered twice into the draw, once if you use any other stamp.
The lucky winner will be chosen at random - the prize is a one-week GDT spot with The Crafty Pad, plus a Crafty Pad stamp that the DT will be working with on your week.  Please pop over to The Crafty Pad for more inspiration.......
This card is my take on the Recipe, using one of Debbie's lovely stamps - "Percy Stargazing".  Have stamped the 4 stars onto silver mirri, cut  them out and added a tiny red Papermania gem to the centres. The 3 papers and 2 ribbons are from my stash, and Percy has been coloured with watercolour pencils (without water!).  His new Christmas slippers, which Santa brought him, (ok - I know it's not Christmas yet, but this is just make-believe), have been made with Candy Cane Stickles. (You see, if you wish upon a star - you do sometimes get what you wish for)!!
The giant snowball is a Nestie, covered in Glamour Dust and edged with Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels Iced Crystal.
Greeting stamp from "Build a Flower" set by Personal Impressions.
Hope to see your lovely creations at The Crafty Pad this week. 
Thanks for visiting - Hugs, Sylvia xxx

Ooh beautiful Christmas shiny Sylvia, a very lovely card.
I'm putting those "there's no place like home" sparkly ruby red slippers on my Santa List.
There's enough Glamour Dust on that card to roll about in - fabulous!

This is absolutely gorgeous Sylvia and that little penguin is so cute.
I tried to say thanks for the OTT award a couple of days back and blogger wouldn't let me leave it!!!
Just to let you know I'm having a think about who to pass it on to as some peops don't like that sort of thing lol.
Sending hugs, Fliss xx
