Sparkly Fairy


It's offical i HATE the school run - i'm so fed up with other mums speaking to me when they are on their own and yet when they get into a group, i seem to have invented 'Invisibility', as i just get ignored / blanked !!!, so to cheer myself up last week i drove over to The Glitter Pot and treated myself to a couple of things including the Tim Holtz dies 'Elegant Flourishes'.

On a more positive note, i've just found out that i have been picked to be a 'Cupcake Cutie' - thank you so much, this is just the positive pick up i needed.

So today i decided to dig out a stamp i have had for at least 2 and a half years ( in fact it brings back fond memories of my weekend in Blackpool with some fabby Docrafting ladies) and with a few Sparkly challenges around i thought i would also have a play with my Stampin Up - heat & stick powder and dazzling diamonds.

Todays Challenges and Card :

Cutie Pie - where Challenge No: 2 is 'Bingo Board' - I chose - Charm, Something With Wings, Ribbon or Lace

The Secret Crafter - where Challenge No: 155 is 'Anything As Long As It Sparkles'

Simon Say's Stamp - where this weeks Challenge is 'Sparkle & Bling'

Flutterby Wednesday - where Challenge No: 174 is 'Anything Goes'

Oldie But A Goodie - where the Challenge is 'Wings' - i've had the stamp for over 2 years

By The Cute And Girly - where they are celebrating their 2nd Birthday with 'Anything Goes'

Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge - where R #40  is a 'Recipe Sketch'

Image - Pink Gem Designs - sorry don't know name, as it's not on the packaging
Papers - Basic Grey - 'Euphoria'
Punched Edge - MS - 'Traditional Scallop'
Ribbon, Charm and Gems from stash

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x

But I am sure the trip to the Glitter Pot cheered you up no-end!! I hope so anyway.

Congratulations too on becoming a Cupcake Cutie .. .. well done.

Cute card and thanks for the info on the glitter technique.

Love Jules xx

Oh I know what you mean Sam! It's not too bad at school because I've found a crafty friend to talk to, but I don't really talk to anyone outside nursery, they're all in their own little groups.

Love your sparkly card hun, it's so pretty :o) Lisa x

Sam I am so glad the school run is over for me as I too was either invisible or just plain ignored because I would not let my children play in the street and wanted to know where they were all the time. Just smirk at the ignorant devils it will keep them guessing as to what you are smiling about. Anyway love your card the image is so cute. Alison xxx
