So let’s see what the design team have made for us...

Fiona - I have used for my first GDT Make a image called Twiggy bauble from the Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun cd I added some glitter to the frame and to twiggy to make it sparkle. Twiggy and Toots is available as a digital download or cd .

Anjie - I have printed some papers from the Angelberry Christmas collection onto centura pearl card to give the background some sparkle, I've added a bit of glare on the photo so you can see this. I've then printed some embellies from the same collection and some mushroom houses from the Home For Christmas Collection and added some glitter over the snow. I've mounted them all onto 3D foam to give it some dimension. These two collections work fabulously together don't you think! (More photos on my blog)....
Julie -- Christmas and sparkle!  Fun!  Everything on this card -- papers, poinsettia, sentiment and tag, are all from the Picknix 3, Nordic Winter collection.  It's available in Digital Download and CD.

Monica.-Have you heard about pocket letters? Those beautiful set of nine 2.5 by 3.5 cards you make to fill the pockets of a letter size page. I love this and I have Christmas swap with my friends. Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun papers, precoloured images and sentiments were just perfect to make my Christmas pocket letter set. I add lots glitter to some of the images and 3d other.
Tanya...This week I've been playing with texture and adding glitter to it by using the papers from Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun (available HERE on CD  and HERE on download) on an MDF Santa.  There's more pictures on my blog. 
Helen ...I've used the 'Winter Deer' Octavia Frosted Download available HERE  and paper from the Eden Collection Paper Heaven 1 Bundle available HERE. There is glitter glue on the snow and I've used gems plus the gold card....
Jane – Like many of you I could not resist the lure of the current colouring book craze made even more tempting by the downloadable ones available in the Polkadoodles Shop HERE.  Today I have coloured up one of Nikky’s incredible images that you will get this month when you join the COLOUR THERAPY CLUB.  I used my Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor Pencils and went a little sparklelicious with Stickles.  You can find the sentiment bauble among many other scrummy things as part of the PICKNIX 2 GINGERBREAD TWIST download.  Have a lovely crafty day! xxx

Lynda: I love this weeks challenge... any excuse to get the glitter out :-) I used my favourite collection this week, Nordic Winter. The beautiful papers, digi stamp, sentiment and embellishments are all included either on the  CD or if you prefer to not wait you can buy is as a digital download. Have Fun xx
Emma - I just love the Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun collection & it was my go to collection when I saw this challenge. I have used one of the house templates for the base of this card, I have added the pre-coloured Christmas trimming that can be found Here I have added some sparkle to her hat & top of the pot. All of the embellishments & templates are from the full collection that can be found Here.
Wendy -What's Christmas with out sparkles! For my image I've used Frosty Penguins from the Octavia Frosted Winter collection. You can also get the image as an individual digi here. My sparkles are from using Sparkle pens.
Audrey has used Hollybobs Angel digi image which can also be found in Work and Play Volume 5 Festive Hollybobs Full Download.  This image was such fun to color with Copics and I added Stickles and glitter pen for some added sparkle.  Papers and sentiment are from Angelberry Christmas CD Rom.  Flowers and tree are from the Octavia Frosted Winter Digital Download.  Sure hope you like it!...Inside:
