♥ Simon Says...Make it Sparkle ♥

2 more days peeps!! My kids are counting the seconds until Santa comes down our chimney! I kind of am too! ;) Love Christmas. The only bad thing about this snow and warm temps! I hate it! It does not feel like Christmas! I love my seasons and Christmas is supposed to be cold here in the Northeast! Tomorrow, Christmas Eve, is supposed to be in the 70's! Don't like it one bit!:)  But the most important thing is celebrating Jesus' Birthday with family and friends whom we love! Let's not forget the real meaning of Christmas! :)

Today starts a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week we want your creations to.... SPARKLE!
This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Technique Tuesday. I am using the Merry Christmas Snowflake Seal Clear Stamp by TT.

This cute stamp is perfect for a card, a gift or the back of an envelope. Love stamps that are versatile like that. I stamped it directly onto the Hero Arts Acetate Card using some Black StazOn Ink and colored it in with the Candied Apple Distress Marker and added lots of  Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter.

I did the same thing for the TH Mini Mason Jar, only I stamped it onto some white cardstock instead of acetate. I also used lots of Jack Frost Sequins by Lucy's Cards on both the jar and card. (Love all of the sequins by Lucy's Cards!) Check them all out HERE!

Speaking of the jar, isn't that one of the cutest things you've seen? Love these jars and I also love the little spoon from the TH Silverware Adornments! So sweet! I filled the jar with some dry milk, cocoa powder, Powdered sugar, crushed candy cane and of course some mini marshmallows! Makes for a quick little gift! :)

And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

I hope you all have a lovely and wonderful Christmas!!

When I first saw this on SSS Blog, I initially thought you had used some sacred antique spoon from dear old great-Grandmother. (lol) How fun to learn it is TH and can be purchased at SSS. I need to get myself a couple sets. TOO cute! Hope you and your family have a blessed Christmas.
