X ½ way mark

Hey all its Wednesday ½ way through the week already and ½ way through our X marks the Spot challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge so we have a reminder for you!

for my card I got a bit messy with distress inks and crackle paint and also used some packaging card the corrugated stuff, glossy accents and some liquid pearls mixed and added to a mini mister

here is a close up, you can see the sparkle from the crackle rock candy paint and the glossy accents on the chip board swirls that I have coloured in distress inks first

Here are some challenges I am playing along with:
Simon says Stamp - Anything Goes
Bunny zoes crafts - Winter
Jingle Belles - Anything Holiday Goes
Fussy and Fancy - I love Christmas
Hooked on craft - Christmas No red or green
Crazy 4 challenges - Feature a snowman

Have a great day and hope you can stay dry and warm 
and don't forget to come and join us at 

and also visit my teamies I say it nearly every week
but really they are a fabulous team and are full of awesome ideas!
