Let It Snow - Sparkles !

     OK, I'm home and the weather didn't cool down a bit while I was gone so we're still headed for daily temps over 100 F for at least the next week.  Yuck.

     But Catch the Bug is having their week long, Christmas-in-July challenge (with a different theme for each day) so I'm going to think "snow" and try to play along each day.  The last couple of years, I've played in some of the challenges but not each day.  This time, I want to do each daily challenge so you're going to see at least 2 posts from me on most days.  Here's my first one for the Saturday Catch the Bug challenge which requires sparkle.

     This is one of my older images from Bugaboo Stamps and I colored it with ProMarkers, then added glitter to the snowflakes, to the scarves and stocking caps, to the "Let It Snow" sentiment, and then added Wink of Stella to the stack of snowballs.

     I cut both the image and the red CS with stitched dies from Lawn Fawn.  The mesh ribbon is covered with sparkle and it literally sprinkles down every time it's touched!  I have glitter all over my craft table, all over me, all over the computer desk... Sheesh -  I think "snow" and I get a shower of glitter!  lol
