Ladybug Crafts SPARKLE!

Happy Sunday everyone, only a few more days until Thanksgiving and then the countdown begins! My husband dislikes the christmas atmosphere, says it is too commercialized and I agree. I told him to just try and think of it as a time when more people try to be nice to each other (he says he always is which is why I have to say more people. I am pretty sure the people he works with would disagree with him on this point). Anyways, I am plodding along making up some more christmas cards and this one is from Ladybug Crafts Inc. The challenge this week is sparkle and bling. I know it is hard to tell in the photo so I will point out all my sparklyness (?) to you. Again this is the new My Minds Eye christmas paper and a just rite stamp for the sentiment. I spritzed the sentiment with iridescent gold glimmermist and the paper already has sparkle on it. I also added atyou spica glitter pens to the tree star and ornaments and the fire. The snowflakes are some maya road chipboard that I rubbed with the new inka gold platinum paint and I put a red rhinestone in the center of each. I need to get out my snowflake and swirl dies that my friend Elaine (hey girlfriend!) sent me and put them to use. Well, so far the Steelers are winning so my husband should be a happy camper this evening, until he remembers tomorrow is Monday but he is on vacation starting Friday so that is okay. Have a good evening!
