Full on glitter!

Hi blogworld,

Firstly can I say thanks for the comments on my paper flowers - suggestions taken on board and I will post the revised bouquet when finished.  You might be interested to know as well that even though Emily got all huffy over what I'd made, she has appropriated the bouquet and not put it down yet!  I do hope I didn't give the impression that what she made wasn't any good.  It's perfect because she made it, it's just I had something completely different in my head.

Anyway - the glitter (and bling, should have been more of that!) is as it's a new challenge over at The Cutie Pies and this time we would love to see your cute creations with glitter and bling on them.

Our sponsor this time is the wonderful Dig Darla Designs, pop over to the blog to get the full details on the prize!

So, my cute glittery blingy card is this effort:

Sideways trying to show the glittered bubbles and candle flame:

I used:

The Greeting Farm - Me Time Anya
coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers
then the background chalked 


My Mind's Eye - miss caroline: the backing paper
Craftwork Cards: the spotty paper

Anything else?
Flowers and faux pearls - stash
My Crafty Heart - resin flower (seriously get yourself some - they are just beautiful!)
Wild Orchid Crafts - the silver corner
Craftwork cards - card blank and sentiment
Glamour Dust

So does anyone out there have a cute image and lots of glitter in their stash - the get yourself off to The Cutie Pies!

See you soon,

PS - You may notice I've stitched, I had another go at my mini sewing machine but there is a technical phrase for what's wrong with it - the clean version is it's broke!!  The needle puts the holes in, but no thread.  So I then hand stitched, me stitching - I should've taken a picture to prove it, my hubby almost had a fit when he saw me with a needle and thread in hand!!!!!

A challenge, or two:

Sketch n Stash: Challenge 91 - Gemma's Sketch

Oldie But A Goodie Challenge: Flower Power - the oldie could be the stamp or the flowers - both at least a year old (the flowers at least 2 yrs!) and it's the first time I've used the stamp!

And Lisa's Waste not Wednesday - Hi Lisa, same explanation as above - stamp/s or flowers.
