All that Glitters…

Hi, everyone!

I can’t believe it’s 2014, can you?  You’ll hopefully be seeing me more this year now that I’ve {hopefully} got a balance going.  {shhhh!  I didn’t *really* say that, haha!}

Today’s already the 5th of the month, and you know what that means!

The year is shiny and new, so let’s add shimmer and shine to our cards.
Think glitter, sequins, rhinestones, pearls, heat embossing – anything with some gloss.
I have a little gift box that I created using the “SMALL PHRASES” set.  There’s plenty of bling on here, too ;)   I used a 12×12 paper set from Stampin’ up, but the name escapes me at the moment- I’ll be back w/ that info :)  The flower is from Prima.

These little boxes from Stampin Up are my fave, and just in case you were wondering?  Yes, they do fit a cupcake just perfectly.  haha.

December Sale
Thanks for heading over here from BETTY’s blog.   Soooo… I have been a terrible DT member lately and I’m sorry for not catching you all up w/ my creations!
I have had kind of a crazy few weeks and apologize for not having anything new for today’s hop.  However, it dawned on me that i have quite a few cards from when I was on the Dirty Dozen and haven’t shown them all yet, so here’s one of my faves from that time period, using one of my favorite Plain Janes, “Light Tomorrow”:

I can’t tell you how long I had this fabulous lamp die-cut sticker before I could finally use it- and it’s the PERFECT sentiment for it, don’t you think?
Be sure to head over to KAREN’s blog next- you know she will have something amazing as always!

…where DREAMS may go.

Hi, everyone!

I know… I’m JUST as shocked as you are that it’s already the 5th of the month!  Where does the time go?!

Well, that being said, welcome to our Diva Inspirations Hop! It’s the 5th of the month and that means it’s time for the Verve Inspirations Team to breathe new life into some much-loved stamps and dies. And there’s a PRIZE up for grabs, so be sure to leave a little shout out in the comment section of each blog as you hop about to be entered in a drawing for a $30 gift certificate to Verve Stamps! Check out all the details and prize info over at the Verve Blog.

If you’re just getting here from BETTY’s blog, thanks for coming right over!  I’m excited about today’s card because it’s going to my beautiful girl next month.   I can’t believe another season of competition dance and recital is winding down with our recital and National finals all this month!  After that, it will be 2 weeks of intensive and comp. camp, as auditions will be upon us once more for the next season.  I thought this sentiment was perfect from the BLUE SKIES set to give to her during auditions:

She has been working so hard and has quite an awesome list of goals for herself, so I thought this was perfect.  The paper is MME and the flower is Maya Road… my last of my fave felt flowers and I couldn’t think of a better reason to use it than to give it to my beautiful daughter!

Thanks so much for stopping by today- be sure to head right over to the delightful KAREN’s blog next!

xoxo.
