Winter Sparkle!


Happy Weekend! It finally looks like winter here in New England. We have a little snow on the ground finally and it is really cold! I got to go shopping yesterday at one of my favorite stamping stores in Dover, NH. It is quite a ride for us so we make it a fun road trip for my sister Peggy, Kristen, Pia and Michelle and myself. We got there early and spent quite a while there shopping, no one left without a bag full of goodies. We finished the morning off at Friday's for lunch, gossip and a lot of laughs. Peggy and I finished off the day at our LSS where some paper that she ordered came in and we found some new very pretty paper packs that we both had to have. It was a very expensive but fun day! I am so glad this is a 3 day weekend so I can play with my new stuff.

This card was made for Going Grey with Scrap-Creations Challenge this week. I am posting late but you still have time to come play along with us. This week is a favorite theme for me Glitter!!!!! I love to put glitter on everything, the more sparkle the better. This card is covered with it. I just love these Saturated Canary digis, it is hard to pick just a few as your favorites.
