SDC224: Sequins

Happy December everyone, we hope that you had a wonderful time with our challenges last month.  
We will only have two challenges in the month of December so that our designer's can enjoy some family time. The two challenges will be open all month so make sure to link up your entries all month for a chance to win. We will announce the 30.00 gift certificate winners on Jan. 6th.

Our first challenge hostess for this week is Valerie and she is challenging us to use Sequins in your project. Here is what Valerie says about this challenge:

Hi there lovely friends....
My name is Kassa (Karen Hayselden) - eeek! so excited to be here!
I'm from a glorious part of England - Yorkshire
I live there with my hubby, beautiful daughter and my furry gang, consisting of 3 dogs, Leo the Leonberger, Sammy the Pug and...lol Ruby the Leonberger who often likes to get involved with 'our' art, tis her big nose, its often covered with gesso, paints and glitters!
When it comes to art, I'll give anything a go but my real love is mixed media filled with tiny detail....details that take me into my own little world and imagination - a happy place to be.....creating 'happy' art......and more often than not on the wacky, quirkier side!
A few years ago I started my Stampotique 'addiction' just can't get enough of these beauties and oh boy I'm ├╝ber excited as I have my very own design range coming out with Stampotique in (February/March) I'm combusting with the wait heeheehee! But till then I'm busy creating samples using my 'new' Stampotique designs that will be revealed over here at Stampotique, in 'Making Cards' & 'CraftStamper' magazines.
To go peek at my blog here's the link - ‪kassadh.blogspot.co.uk
But for more up to date posts (almost daily) you can always find me over on my Facebook address = https://www.facebook.com/Kassa.dh
