Sparkling Snoopy

It's Sparkle and Bling Challenge this week on Simon Says Stamps Challenge and the team are showcasing HM stamps but although I love these cute stamps I don't seem to be able to do them justice so I decided to use a Snoopy who is made by Stampabilities the same manufacture.
I actually thought the tennis ace would be ideal for my tennis mad son but he's got a dodgy knee and hasn't been able to play for months so I didn't use him for his birthday.
So this was the perfect opportunity.

 You don't have to use HM or Snoopy stamps to enter the challenge but if fancy a little bit of shopping do check out the Simon Says Stamps Store.
I've also used First Editions Summer Breeze and I made the tennis net by punch out two Martha Stewart garden trellis punch, cutting off the scallop bit and then joined them together.
Another handy die to have is the MFT clouds and I've used them quite a lot recently and this time I faux stitched round them, then I had to faux stitch all the mats too.
Now you might be wondering where the sparkle and bling is, well I stickled the racket and the swing, yes I know its a bit of cheat but if a DT member can do (me) so can you but don't tell the boss!

Lovely easy challenge and if you enter you could be in for a chance of this fabulous prize but you have to join us to win and don't forget to check out the team they didn't cheat like me.
