Week Two of our Sparkle challenge and the winners from November

Hello Peeps! How is the countdown to Christmas going for you? 
I think I am doing OK which probably means I have forgotten something! 

This month the challenge is to:

Sparkle - and make us smile!

You can create something all sparkly for Christmas, not necessarily a card 

We all end up with glitter all over us and the creative space anyway at this time of the year
so go for it!

The twist is to make us (the readers) smile!

This can be with your project or with your post about that project!

A $20 Aust. Gift Voucher to an on-line shop of choice
(must be able to issue gift vouchers)

Before we go to our wonderful DT Inspiration work,  I have to announce the winner of November's challenge

A lovely card for a sister

Congratulations Carol! The die will be posted asap!

Unfortunately, there are no prizes for the Favorite apart from Honor and Glory!
This month we choose three (3) DT Favorites:

Look at that quilled kitchen!

So much texture!

Altered sauce bottles!

Well done Crafters!

Now, we have several Guests in the Design Team this month

 The first one is Dawn Lancaster!

I'm delighted to have been invited to GDT at Unstampabelles this month.
Here's a little bit about me.
I live in Edinburgh, Bonnie Scotland, with my husband & two feline friends.
I am a dental nurse by day & love to craft of an evening.
I've pretty much crafted all my life one way or another. When I was small, I used to love those little paper dressing up dolls & spent hours cutting out the different outfits & having fashion shows with them. My mum also taught me how to knit & sew.
I've been making cards for about 10 years now. I saw the lovely cards my mum was making & decided to have a bash myself, so got her to show me a few tips & techniques.The first proper card I made was for my Dad's 70th Birthday. From there, things just spiralled out of control & I now have a house full of crafty bits & pieces. 

Love the red nose!

Our second GDT member is Aussie Annie

who has made us this

and we have a third GDT member this month

About myself 
I am an ENT Surgeon from India and crafting especially papercrafts is something which helps me big time to destress and keep me relaxed ! Unstampabelles is very very special to me as several years back [Feb 2012 to be exact] when I started crafting , a simple quilled framework I made using recycled materials was picked as the DT favorite and showcased on Susan's Unstampabelles...it gave me such a huge morale boost! Thank you so much Susan for having me here once again
I will share a tutorial on my blog but I am going out of station and so will post on 16th once I am back

Thank you to all our Guests for their willingness to create especially for us!

 Dale, one of our DT members has also made three cards to inspire you

For this card I used glitter stickers

For this card I used glitter washi tape

For this card I used glitter cardstock and the die-cut ornament has a glitter pattern on it too.

So, some great pieces of work to make you inspired to create and then to post into our challenge - you have till the end of December to enter this challenge
