Belles 'n Whistles Challenge "Glitter it Up"

 Please scroll down for this weeks challenge post for The Stamping Bazaar

HI AGAIN..... I hope you have all been playing along in our Belles 'n Whistles Advent each day!  Hop on over to the Belles 'n Whistles Insprational Blog for some daily inspiration, fun, and prizes.

Do you see that Blinkie over there

Click on it, see what happens! =)

Okay, now on to this weeks challenge...I am so excited that it was my turn to host this weeks Challenge over on the BnW Challenge Blog, simply because I LOVE GLITZ and GLAM... So I'm challenging you all to create something, anything, using one of our SWEET Belles 'n Whistles Stamps, and add all the glitter and glamor that you want. It's all about "Glittering it Up"

Think you can all handle the sparkle? ha ha

This is what I created for the Challenge... No card from me this week, I decided to make a gift bag that sparkles!        What do you think?

 I couldn't very well leave the white part of the bag stark white, could I?  So I used some distress inks, some perfect pearls mixed with water in a spray bottle, and some random Christmas stamps.  And away we went!

The whole time I was working on this gift bag, I have to admit I was laughing all the way... ho ho ho....  No seriously, I really WAS laughing, because I was watching and/or listening to the movie called "Deck The Halls" with Matthew Broderick, and Danny Divito.  Haaaa what a riot!  I have watched it each year since it was released on DVD, and I STILL laugh over it ...  

Anyway, enough chatter about what movie I was watching...  LOL

Seriously now, I REALLY REALLY hope that you will join in with this weeks challenge. 

Our challenge runs for 2 weeks, and believe it or not, we only had 4 participants last time.  YIKES....  come on everyone, lets Glitter it Up, and play along!  Wanna???

Ohhhh, I have an idea... what if you made an ornament??? With GLITTER and SPARKLE, and then entered it into the 3 week long Belles 'n Whistles Ornament challenge???  Click that link, it should take you to the simple rules about the challenge.... 

Hmmmmm, now wouldn't that be a good idea???  Kill two birds with one stone sort of thing....  You see, you have to always be thinking... ha ha..

Alrighty now, what are you waiting for.... Ready, Set, CRAFT!!!
