Dazzle Us With Something Challenge!

Hope everyone is having a great day and for all my buddies across the pond, Happy Independence Day!!

The challenge on Stamp Something this week is "dazzle us with something that sparkles, shines, shimmers or glitters" and this can only mean one thing for me (or rather, two!) - glitter and mirricard!!!

The image is from Penny Black and I've coloured it with Brushables and added plenty of glitter to the bra and butterflies although it doesn't show up too well in the photo. Papers are from Pink Petticoat printed onto lightweight c.s. and layered with mirricard. Sentiment is SU as are the punches I used to layer it. Finally ribbon and buckle are from my stash. Had to add a Papermania sticky gem inside the buckle because the ribbon is so sheer, you could see the back of the buckle, however, not too happy with the finished effect.

Have sent Tony up the school to pick the kids up which means it's my turn to take Sam to Tae Kwon-do tonight - Lewis won't be going as he had a fall at school yesterday and bruised his wrist so he has to rest it for a couple of days. We took him to the hospital to get it checked out and you should have seen his little face when they told him it was bruised and not broken......he was so disappointed - he so wanted a plaster cast!!!

Hope you all have a great weekend and pop on over to Stamp Something because we're looking for a Guest us your bling!!!

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Card Requests

Been quite busy recently trying to juggle work, home life and the card requests I have received.  This type of card has proved very popular so here are the ones I have made so far...still have a few more projects and cards to complete before I am able to start on my own!

The two 50 cards do look almost identical however, they are for twins!

Small Reindeer Bauble

I've been busy making a mess all weekend trying out different types of Christmas cards and other projects so thought I would share a quick project.

This bauble is smaller than the ones I made a little while ago - it will fit on a Christmas Tree whereas the other ones were for room decorations.
Hoping to have a few more projects to share with you very soon.
