Bling It On

Hello there!

We're having crazy weather here ... We've just had a hail storm followed by blue skies ... It's been like that all morning...

Yesterday I decorated the house for Christmas and tomorrow,weather permitting, I'm hoping to travel to Lincoln to see my Aunt... She had to have her little kitty put to sleep last week so you can imagine how sad she is...

I've still got lots of cards to share ... some got sent before I remembered to photograph them Lol!

This one features the new dies I got from Simon Says Stamp again except I did something different with the tree die


Those little swirls should pop out so the tree looks like this


But I left them in and used foam dots to pop them up and then added pearls
You can see from this next photo how they are raised


I love it when you can use your dies different ways


... And use the left over pieces like those dots to add a little more interest

I'm linking this up to The Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp which is 
"Bling It On"

Thanks to all of you who responded to the blogger problem ... You are quite right ... there is no need to fill in the verification number - your comment publishes without it ... Who knew?

I hope you have a lovely day and that the season isn't stressing you too much

Keep safe

It's a wonderful idea to add the pearls. Gving the tree a touch of that sparkle that we all love. This is breathtaking!
The weather has been horrible here too. With loads of rain on Thursday and Friday and now it's chilly.
Hope you were able to visit your aunt. Sending love,
