Playin' with Glitter!

Happy Saturday! How are ya?! I'm fabulous! Today has been a very nice day for us here in central Alberta. The kids did 4-H Highway Clean-Up this afternoon and I spent a good portion of the day with my good friend, Tamie, and her family as it was her Dad's 80th birthday and they invited me to the event. It was so nice to meet everyone in the family and put faces to names as I've heard of them throughout the years but haven't met most of them. Thanks again Bon-Bon and Tamie for inviting me :) xoxoxoox

Both kids are at friends so it's just been DH and I here at home. It's been so nice to just sit and craft and hang out with him (yep, he's been muckin on my puter while I craft) lol....but that's ok - we are spending time together in my office and that's great!

The Shabby Tea Room has a very messy challenge this week - they want us to "Get Your Bling On" so I took that as glitter....well, it's ONE MESSY EMBELLISHMENT let me tell ya! And...I did not chintz out on the glitter this time around - no sireeee! DH figures it's a bit too much but I don't - the more bling the better, right?! I saw a card like this on Splitcoaststampers, but they had sponged the inside I think....I decided to put glitter in the spaces for the petals :)

Stamps: Well Scripted; Paper: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Rose Red, Whisper White; Ink: Rose Red; Accessories: Leaves die, glue pen, glitter, acrylic block.

Not too sure what the rest of the evening holds for me.....I hope you are all having a fantastic Saturday!!

P.S. Don't forget to hop on over to the Picture Perfect Creations Challenge Blog and get your card in for this week's color challenge! The deadline is 10 a.m. EST on Monday, May 10th! Hurry on over! :)


  1. I am a Shabby Tea Room follower and saw your card and just had to see who made it. It is FABULOUS !
    I have the same rose embossing folder and use it a lot., but I never thought of using it the way you did. VERY CLEVER !!! You are right about glitter being messy, so I may not try immitating you until a day when I can work outside and not have my 2 dogs around to "help" me. Good Job on the card !!
