Glitter doesn't have to be Christmas!

Hello blogworld,

So here we are on the cusp of the Christmas month - only a few days now before I officially let Christmas in my house. Then I will be mass producing Christmas cards!

But, until the 1st December I'm still bah humbuging and I'm here to let you know that you don't have to make a Christmas card to join in with us this week at Divas by Design.  Of course, you can, but you don't have to!!

The theme is 'Glitter and Sparkle' - so break out the Stickles, Glamour Dust, glittery papers, sparkly gems - anything that glitters or sparkles is the name of the game.

We're sponsored by the awesome:

 and the DT were allowed some images to play with, this is my pick and the card I made:

Front shot:

Close up of image:

New type of arty farty - to try and show the glitter:

I used:

Kenny K - Elf Queen
coloured with my Pro and FlexMarkers
The flourishes are from a set but I can't remember who made them!

Memory Box - Macarena corner

echo park - Be Mine

Anything else?
Ribbon and gems from my stuff
Glamour Dust - lots of it as well!!

I made a very silly mistake with the image on this card - so I might well take it off and do it again.  But I'd spent so long colouring it that I didn't have time to do another before the challenge started, so unfortunately you don't get a 100% perfect card!

I also can't help thinking it needs something else, but I can't for the life of me figure out what, so I didn't!!

There you go, my sparkly glittery non-Christmas card - looking forward to seeing all your wonderful creations now.

See you soon,

PS - SWMbO got moved up to the next level reading books yesterday - all my knickers in a twist for nothing!!!  Don't tell hubby he was right though ;-)

A challenge, or two:

I get quite a few extra dies cut when my 2 year old grandson (Bevan) wants to "play" with me Big Shot...hahaaa! Love the purple hair...might have to try that on me own copperknob, lol...and I'm sure you could have made this into a sparkly Christmas card if you'd tried a little harder.....okay, backin' into me corner before you land me one, hahaaa!

Looks perfect to me! Can't see any errors. Lovely and sparkly and perfect.
Glad she got moved up to the next level...Little Miss C has been reading every night and every morning and doing her word match reading and has finally moved up to level 5 which is average for her age.
We will all keep working with her...we have never had anyone in our family who didn't like reading so it has been a struggle. As she gets better, she seems to like it more...but no love yet!!!
