Glitter Girl

The Royal Wedding today, is all the excuse I need for a little tea party.  A yummy selection of sandwiches, (crusts removed, of course!) scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam and a big pot of Earl Grey... (replaced with Vodka and ginger beer if I'm feeling stressed... lol**). Hope you all have fun, whatever you are up to.

Over at Totally Papercrafts we have the perfect challenge for you...

GLITTER

I LOVE glitter, and my new favourite thing is a little glue pen, 
that allows you to easily add glitter to small areas.
I'm really looking forward to seeing your cards this week, 
so throw that glitter around :-))


My daughter, Annabel is 21 in June and she asked for a card with glitter on... I searched high and low for an image that she would love and came across this one from the Penny Black J'aime Paris set. (I gotta thank my teamie Lols for this.... it was her fab card here that led me to this set - thanks hunny  xxx)

I glittered the dress and kepy everything else pretty simple. The stamp actually has a heart on the cake, but I replaced it with some number stickers, that I also glittered. I wish the photo did the card more justice, IRL it's really sparkly and pretty!!
