Adding Sparkle

Good morning. Today's post is for Winter Wonderland's challenge  "Add some Sparkle". Our host is Anet this time. A very brief post because it is quite late and I need to schedule this post for morning. I am off to the Blenheim Palace Flower Show with my friends from WI and we are hoping for fine weather.  Keeping our fingers and toes crossed anyway.

Hi Christine
Fun and festive and using one of my favourite paper pads.
You can see the sparkle in all its glory.
So disappointed to have missed Blenheim but certainly aiming for the motorcycle museum.
Best wishes.

Morning Christine, it's a lovely sunny day here and yesterday was a good day at hospital, lots of positives! Super little snowman here, a great Christmas card and not too bulky to post. Hope you enjoyed the flower show, Jx

Oh sounds like a fun day for you, so hope the weather cooperates. Sunshine always makes the flowers glow better I think! Speaking of glowing, the sparkle shows up quite nicely on my monitor for this little Snowy. Especially on the corner snowflake. He's a cutie and love his checkered scarf, which I am guessing you paper pieced. Nice layout and great coloring too. Glad you had a chance to check on the cut out tutorial, and look forward to seeing your efforts. I'm finding it seems to make a difference as to just what flower I select! But it's fun to try, anyway! TFS & Hugs. Enjoy your outing.
