Good morning friends! Welcome to another fortnightly challenge over at Basic Grey, where this week's theme is glitz and bling....... oooooh me thinks we might see rather a lot of Christmas entries, right? There is a scrumptious prize up for grabs so do hop straight over and check it out, somebody is going to be a very happy bunny if they win!
So, glitz and bling....... well this isn't a difficult challenge for me as I love both, so I added Sparkle Dust for the glitz and rhinestone gems for the bling. Don't you just adore Mo's snowman? I certainly do....... so much so that I bought him twice, ROFL!!!!! I think I must have downloaded him the day he was released and then put him to the back of my mind..... so then a couple of weeks later I saw someone use him on a card and thought to myself, hmmmm I think I need the cute little fella! What did I do? Purchased him again and then when it came to downloading the PC asked me if I wanted to replace the file which already existed!!!! DOH!!!! So now I'd better use him lots to get my money's worth!!!
Whilst I was at the NEC I spied a little stitching piercer tool that I had been after to help with my faux stitching attempts, so on this card I got to try it out..... not too bad for a first attempt I think ;o) The blue background paper is MME and this gorgeous festive paper is from Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding range..... I cut some circles from the pattern to create the embellies. I also used a Sizzix die for the mittens which are hanging in the corner and I coloured my image with Poly and Koh pencils. Ooooh, nearly forgot, the swirls are from a Woodware punch which I also managed to pick up at the NEC.
Well I'm off out today to take Georgia to the opticians as she's having a contact lense trial..... not sure how she'll go on as she's very squamish about touching eyes, lol!
Don't forget to check out what my teamies have been up to, there cards are amazing.... blingtastic in fact!!!!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
