For my card I have hand embossed with cutwork and I have coloured my WOJ image with Copics adding glamour dust to her wings then poppped her up with 3d pads onto a nestie. Papers are from PM and ribbon trim is from my stash.
This is the last day of the month, and what a birthday bash we have had to celebrate Danni´s big FOUR O, thank you all for making this so much fun, this is the last week of celebration candy. Anna is our Guest Designer this week, do stop by her blog and leave her some love - you will be so pleased you did and whilst hopping do stop by my teamies blogs too for inspiration ... links on my sidebar.
Welcome back Kristie and Taylor, you have both been missed.
Our wonderful Michelle has blog candy but I am not going to make it easy for you as you will have to scroll through her beautiful creations to find the post rofl.
Enjoy your day, I am off to do a quick flick, set the table then spend the rest of the afternoon in the kitchen as we have friends coming round for dinner this evening ... I will raise my glass to you all.

None other than our lovely Paula has set the theme of
This week we are sponsored by The Crafty Pad, check out our BLOG to see what this week´s prize is and also for inspiration from my fellow DT´s.
For my card I inked up "Snowman from Stamps Happen" and now know I bit off more than I could chew ... it took hours for it to dry so perhaps my art glitter glue is well past it´s sell by date! First layer was stamped on acetate - glittered from behind and then another 3 layers were stamped onto card, coloured with Copics then cut out and paper pieced in place - final layer was the foreground which I added copious amounts of polar white flowersoft to give the effect of snow so hopefully I have achieved the challenge of All That Sparkles and with the addition of flat backed gems to the snowflakes on my backing paper I have ticked the next box too rofl.
Weeell maybe I may use this stamp again - next year - if I can forget the catastrophies of this card rofl.
Thanks for stopping by my wee crafty corner, your support and comments mean so much. -x-

The theme this week is to use "SPARKLE" along with your butterfly or fairy and yet again Danni has candy up for this challenge.
I have used the sketch from Crafty Cardmakers and will definitely use this one again.
Sorry for bad photo but this is the best I can achieve, backing papers are metallic and really luxurious but boy were they difficult to adhere.
I used my Copics for the skin tones, hair and shoes and then not actually paper piecing but acetate piecing - glittered from behind and a bit glamour dust added to her hair ribbon. Popped her up with 3d pads onto this gorgeous handmade paper which IRL looks like snow and backed this with glitter card. My flowers are by Petaloo and these are a very small part of the candy I won on Crafty Cardmakers Blog, added a few punched holly leaves to these gorgeous glittery flowers and the sentiment is from a stamp I borrowed from my friend Angie last year, now I am pleased I stamped plenty of these up when I had the chance.
I have taken this with the flash on but as you can see it reflects against the acetate but also allows you to see how sparkly this card is.

I have coloured my sweet image with Copics and blended the background with I kan dee pearlescent chalks - added a trio of butterflies, coloured also with copics, from the waste of a corner punch. Papers are from the Designer Extreme cd´s and other flowers are from my stash.

I am looking for some help here.
Paige age 12, was in a serious boating accident a few weeks ago and has just had part of her arm amputated. The doctors are working to save the rest. I do feel for Paige and her family as my own son lost his leg in an accident when he was 11 so I sure know what they are all going through.
Please check out Erin´s Blog for full details and try to send a card to Paige, we all have plenty of those now, don´t we.
