Sparkle

Hello from a very cold UK
We've had hailstones, rain and wind for the past few days and it's very gloomy here
Yesterday was spent in my little room making more cards.

Just Us Girls have a challenge this week for Sparkle


Well I've made so many cards that fit the bill this past week, Birthday cards, sparkly Christmas cards even cards with the word Sparkle on them ... what to post...

I'm settling for a sparkly snowflake one today


I don't work well with the rich bright golds but I do love the muted softer shade of gold and I had some of this colour self adhesive glitter paper which I used for my snowflakes and the word Joy


I always adhere the glitter paper to odd bits of CS before I die cut and I also used a piece of the self adhesive silver for the little snowflake too ... The BG paper is by Teresa Collins


It needed a little ink splattering but the mists and sprays I had were too gold against this glitter paper so I used some gold drawing ink.
I can assure you this is very sparkly!

News on the cat front ... I put her picture on the FB page of a 5star Cattery know as the Cat's Mansion ... Anyway cutting a long story short ... I've been inundated with messages of people sharing her photo etc., and both an offer of someone coming here with a scanner to check for a microchip and another kind person saying they will take her and re-home her. I'm overwhelmed with the response. 
Now the down side of all this is that every single time I've arranged to take her to the vet, who you may remember offered to keep her until a home is found ... She has done a runner! She comes to be fed but won't even come in the house ... in the evening when the vet is closed ... Oh yes, she comes in the house! 
I think the saga may continue for a while yet Lol!

I hope your day is going well 

Be safe

Wow, what a stunning card Ross! Would love to know where the snow flake die came from, but I'm guessing you did it on your electronic machine? The whole card is so beautiful!!

A lovely holiday card!

I just bought some 12 x 12 sheets very similar to these pretty sparklers. I had bought one already that was just plain silver foil, but I really liked the fine glitter look of the others and they don't flake off. You've sparkled this up to the hilt and I love it. LOL That kitty cat sure seems to have the upper hand. Good luck with that. :-) Hugs!

Diane said...

Beautifully soft and elegant!! I struggle with gold, but love the pretty subtle gold you have used...gorgeous!! Poor kitty, I hope she gets a good home (though she has one with you), are you sure you just don't want to keep her??!! The more the merrier they say..lol!

My oh my oh my....another stunner. I work mostly with silver; gold doesn't look that pretty when I get my hands on it :)
But your card; I am drooling. I never ever get tired of that Sparkle die!
