Challenge #42 Sparkle!

Hello all crafters,
Well well well...the month is here!
 Hope you're all ready for Christmas, or if not that you have it all under control and will manage whatever you had in mind prior to the big day. As you go about stressing with buying gifts for everyone, roasting the turkey, looking for the perfect tree, baking numerous Christmas cakes & cookies, and doing all the other things you have on your endless to-do list, please remember though that what's important is the time you're spending together with family & friends.

The other day I came across this video and I think it says it all about what really matters the most...

This video has gone viral over the last couple of days, so you might already have seen it, but even if, it's certainly worth watching again.

Many thanks to the crafters who took part in last month's Christmas Tic-Tac-Toe. The number of entries were lower than usual, so I suppose you thought it was a tricky one (or you've just been busy). For this month though we have a super simple theme for you. More about that in just a moment.

Now; let's check out who the lucky winner of the £25 Store Voucher is...

No 39, is Minna, who submitted this beautiful vintage Christmas/Winter card:

Congrats dear; please e-mail me, Sandy, to claim your prize.

Now; December is a very busy month for most of us, so that's why we've chosen an easy theme this month. You can thank DT Member Becky, who suggested....

As long as you've got something that sparkles, glistens, shimmers, glitters, twinkles or shines on your project/card, you're good to go! :-)
Here's what the LLC DT came up with:

You see that wee Santa book up in the right corner?
That's a star book; look how amazing it folds out!

 Hope you'll have fun with this challenge! You have almost until next year...this challenge closes 23:55 on New Year's Eve. :-)

Now there's only one thing that remains to be said....
