Can you see it?

the glitter that is!

Hello blogworld

Good morning on this lovely Sweet Stampin day!  Or Saturday as it's known out of blogworld ;-)  I wonder if you've got the theme for the new challenge yet?  No, well here's a clue - you generally manage to tip the pot of it all over your workspace when creating something using it!

Ah, yes!!  That would be glitter then - so the theme this week is 'All that glitters'.

We are sponsored this week by:

with a gift pack as the prize.

Our regular monthly sponsor is:
with a £10 voucher to spend in the shop.

Now I know a lot of you will use this as an excuse to make a Christmas card, I can't do that - it's not December!

So here is my glittery but not Christmassy card:

Trying to show the glitter - does it work?

I used:

Digi image:
Emma Canning: Flatfriend - Birthday Wishes

First Edition - Summer Breeze (again!!)

Memory Box - simple banner and Macarena corner
I'll get back to you about the border - I can't remember!

Anything else?
Glamour dust
flat back pearls from my stuff

We are now on the countdown back to school - will be nice to get my craft time back!  Although, in all honesty, it's been a very nice week off.  We've all managed to enjoy ourselves and I'm almost sad to see school go back (for once!!).

Have a good weekend all and I'll see you next week.


A challenge, or two:

Sketch n Stash: Challenge 99 - The only new things on this are are the digi and the simple banner die - everything else I've had from a few months to more like 6 or 12 months!!

Stampin for the Weekend: Challenge 20 - Anything goes.

Card Makin Mamas: Anything goes.

Fussy and Fancy: Challenge 75 - Pearls and Flowers.

Back again...We have the wee litle tubes of mini smarties...
Generally smarties come in a retangular cardboard box. But at halloween you can get min sized versions of the boxes. They are sold in huge bags of 120 chocolate bars.
The huge bag will usually contain 4 different types of bars. Smarties, Kitkats, Coffee crisps and Aero bars. Each bar is about 1/4 the size of a regular sized bar.

But just to confuse the issue, smarties are also available in full size rations but sold in a bag. The bag is the same size as a regular chocolate bar...just sort of a foil type bag...
Too much choice!!! teehee

Soon as I do the paperwork for DH today (uggggh), I will be writing the post to feature my glorious card!!!

I'm not getting on too well with the copics myself yet, but I'm hoping to improve with lots of practise! Hugs, Lisa x

Julie said...

Fab card - don't you just hate it when you'e made a card all lovely and glittery and the camera just doesn't pick it up as well as you hoped!

Thanks for joining us at Stampin' for the Weekend for our Anything Goes challenge.
