Hi there, so glad you have stopped by for a look at the Sparkle N Sprinkle September Blog Hop.  Now that the temperatures are dropping, along with the first of the leaves, it is time to get a start on those holiday cards.  To make things easier on the pocket book, for the month of September, all of our Christmas & WinterChristian & Sympathy and Jewish images are on special at 15% off along with some coordinating glitters and embossing powders.

So let's get on with the show!  If you came here by way of the amazing Linda Loew,  then you are on the right trail, but if not, in order to be eligible for the Grand Prize, plus three other prizes, you should go back and begin your tour at the SNS home page.

For my first card I decided to use our new Playful Pengies set.  So many fun images in this set, I know a good few of my Christmas cards this year will be made from this set.  This month I challenged myself to think outside the box (or should I say card), so I decided to make a Gatefold card using this set:

Here is the finished card:

If you wish to give this one a go, you will find  complete instructions here.

 Below, you can see the opened card.  I used a mirror stamp to stamp the penguins for the inside.  Doing this (apart from making the inside cuter) it also helped to steady the card.


So then for my second card, I decided I would take a stab at creating a Step Card.

I made my own Star of David using the SNS Tear-ific Tapes and lots of glitter!!  Click right here for full details, on how to make my Happy Chanukah card:

Thanks again for stopping by today.  Remember to leave a comment for me, to increase your chances of winning!  Then continue on the trail by hopping over to see what my awesome fellow Designer, Barbara Bruder has in store for you.
