I'm sorry I've not been around much but just got back from 5 weeks in Florida so taking time to get back into things.

My post today is to launch the new challenge over at Crafting by Designs and  our theme for this week is Winter Sparkle so if you are making Christmas cards then you will have things you can enter.

For my Design Team card I have to admit I cheated a bit I ran out of time before my holiday so I'm using a card I made a couple of years ago using the lovely Christmas Penguins..
