Julie Woolston

I have been married for 38 years this year to my wonderful hubby have 2 grown up children and four gorgeous Grandchildren. I have been crafting for 7 years now after an illness, I didn't realise how big cardmaking was at the time until I came across Create and Craft and then a whole new world opened to me, I have learnt a lot over the seven years from the tv and  all my lovely blogland friends who always inspire me.

...........and now let us move on and see what we have planned for our next challenge..

MARY  has chosen ' TAG YOU'RE IT'
We would like to see a tag either on it's own, in a group, or on a card, but it needs to
be  prominent to be considered as a winner, and of course Christmas related.

The amazing team have prepared for your inspiration....

Passing the blog over

Hello everyone Shaz here 

I have decided that the time has come for me to go onto pastures new and to let you know that i am leaving Sparkles, it has been a hard decision to make as i have loved every minute of my time here.
Rather than the blog close i am passing the blog over to the very capable hands of Caz who has very kindly stepped forward.

Before i leave you i just want to thank you all for the wonderful support you have given me over the years with your beautiful creations and to also thank the sponsors for their generosity and to my team whom i couldn't have made this blog without.

I hope the blog continues with it's support and continues to grow and you never know i may even join in with the challenges myself 

Good Luck Sparkles xx
