About Me

My photo
Hi, my name is Jill. I am a stay at home Mummy, born in Scotland and living in Dubai. I love to scrapbook, make hand-crafted cards and paper projects. I am a full-time mummy to Adam and have a wonderful husband and great family. I love stamping and being creative. I lie awake at night thinking up new designs! Does everyone do this or is it just me? :) Thanks for stopping by. Jill x

Christmas Sparkle

Good morning all,
I hope you are all well.  I still have this terrible cold (since last Saturday) and now my little man's cough and sore throat has turned into a runny nose too! What are we like? lol  Anyway, yesterday was weird.  We had rain! Yes, not unusual for some but for us living in the desert, it's the first rain this year. And oh boy, thunder, lightning and rain for 1 hour and it flooded the neighbourhood. Roads were impassable and my little man was calling our car ' a boat' ! lol
Anyway, enough about me, let me tell you about this week's challenge at 2 Sisters.
And there are two fabulous sponsors this week. 
And here is my DT card. I have added the sparkle to the snow and the sentiment. The image is a Bugaboo image that was a 'Friday Freebie'.  Thank you Bugaboo.  The background paper is My Mind's Eye 'Everyday Flair' and the polka dot paper is from We R Memory Keepers 'Cotton Tail'.  The sentiment stamp is from The Greeting Farm.
I hope you will find some time to visit the other DTinspiration at 2 Sisters and it would be fantastic if you could join in with this challenge.
