too much glitter...

Good morning everyone I hope the sun is shining for you wherever you are, we had sunshine yesterday it was lovely to feel it on my face, what a difference a little bit of sun makes, although it does show up the dust in the house I mean not on my face lol...I had a lovely natter over coffee with my Dad yesterday, its fantastic to see him smiling and laughing again...do you think I spend too much time in my local supermarket, on Friday when we went in they burst into a chorus of Happy Birthday much to the amusement of the shoppers and my embarrassment...I think that's a definite sign I need to get out more and I don't mean to the supermarket lol...right now onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Crafts and Me challenges, our host for this challenge is the fantastic Karen and she chose Pink & Sparkly, I used another of the new silhouettes from Crafts and Me, I still find it hard making cards I don't colour though, I guess its just what your used to but must admit they are super fast to make...this little cutie is called Fairy Love, I distressed the edges with a Pink Lipstick distress ink and teamed it up with these stunning papers that I had forgotten about, they are from the lush S.E.I. Claire 6x6 paper pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, lush papers in this pad some with metallic edging, you will be seeing more of this pad I promise, I cut out some of the flowers and leaves from the paper and glittered them but I made them a little too soggy and they curled up so I hope they look ok, I also glittered some of the flowers in the backing paper too...I finished with some gingham ribbon and a stamped sentiment...the fab sketch is from Sketch Saturday I hope it still counts as I had to move the sentiment to the bottom for it to work...I'm having a bit of a chillin day today as I feel so tired, I have a bit of the old eyelid disease, you know the one where they are attached to your bum so every time you sit down they close...everyone gets it now and again don't they...whatever your up to today I hope you manage to stay awake longer than me

p.s. for all you people who are going to CHA I am ssssssooooo jealous, have you seen the new Tim Holtz distress ink markers...I so need these now they would make my travelling back and forward to the farmhouse so much easier, I would be able to take colouring things with me on the bus and for colouring when I got there...probably by the time we get them here there will be hardly any sets left, does anyone want to pay for me to go to CHA, I will bring them a set back too I promise lol xxx

Hi Mina.... well i read your title... "Too Much Glitter"? And I thought.. 'is she ill'? The words 'too much' and 'glitter' cannot go together in one sentence.... So I love your card - with all it's pinkness and glitter!

It poured down here yesterday all day... so I'm jealous of your sunshine!
Hugs
