A little Glitz!

Ohhhh...I've had such a lovely evening! I've been grumpy all day (not sure why and I really should say to my poor work colleagues who had to put up with me!) and so I decided to come home and make some cards. A couple of people have asked me to make them cards for them and I bought a craft magazine today at lunch....so with lots of inspiration I got to work!

I think thats the thing I love about card making the most.....it's soooo relaxing. I can get lost for hours at a time trying out new techniques, making some old favourites....rumaging through my stash!

I also had time to make a card for some challenges.....

I decided to use the lovely sketch given by Papertake Weekly this week....its nice and simple....I like simple sketches!

The flower is from the craft magazine, made using an accordion-fold on a long strip of coloured paper. You secure it at the back with a little bit of card, which also helps you stick it in place. It was a little fiddly, and you'd need an expanding envelope to send it, but I think it looks great.

You'll note I went down the girlie route for this card! I love that spotty ribbon! I've added glitter around the sentiment and glitter on the centre of the flower. There is also a sequin sewn onto the ribbon. All this glitz is for the latest challenge at My Time to Craft where the theme is Glitter and Glitz! We all know I love a little bit of glitz!

Take a peek at both blogs to see all the gorgeous DT cards!

Anyway, I think I'm going to head back to my craft desk and get a few more cards made...there are lots of Christmas challenges out there at the moment!

Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment to let me know you've visited and I'll pop by your blog to say hi!
