Hello All, sorry I've been absent for a couple of days and had no time for crafting.

We've been celebrating No1 Teen's 18th birthday since Thursday and trying to get into some sort of organisation for Christmas shopping too. Yesterday I did get some crafting time but Mr Dazzle was AWOL so no piccys until today.

So without further Ado ... here's my first make which is for the Color Throwdown, Pixies Crafty Snippet Playground (when the gates open) and Less is More Challenge. The colour palate for the Color Throwdown challenge is my favourite Christmas colours and how I try to decorate my own house so I simply had to have a go. Then yesterday morning Jen & Chrissie at Less is More, with the help of one of my very talented blog buddies Gillian (Made with Sparkle) set the challenge to make a 'sparkling' card. Well you know me I can't resist a bit of glamour and sparkle so here it is:

During the week I was in our local M&S and saw this gorgeous silver tape for gift wrapping BUT when I got home I realised it was washi tape!!! Wow - couldn't wait to use it on a card and I'm not entirely sure whether it'll get to any presents! I've made the background of my panel using snippety strips of the tape. The snowflakes are cut using Marianne Creatable Dies with sparkling silver card from papermania then I've added sparkly green brads to the centres also from papermania and some metallic cord from my stash.

I was enjoying the sparkly effect so much that I made another card too so back in a moment with that one!
