Lavinia - Glitter and Gems

Wow, it seems like ages since I was last here. We have been so busy trying to decorate after having the builders in. We have at last finished our bedroom and have manages to paint some of the ceilings, there are still some to do and a lot more decorating too. But we are going to have a rest for a while as we are off on a cruise tomorrow, we're going to the Caribbean and will be gone for 24 days. A nice length of time to recharge the batteries before starting again when we get home. While the builders were here and I cowered in my shed I got the brushos out that I bought last year and had a play with them. I love the results I got with them they are very random. So when I saw the challenge on Lavinia's blog this month I had a go at over stamping them. I'm very pleased with how they turned out.



The challenge is to add Glitter and Gems. The glitter is on the wings and I've added the gems to the corners of my cards.


I hope to be back later or first thing tomorrow with another card I've made for another challenge,  but I'll have to see how time goes.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Sue

Hi Sue, your cards are beautiful, the backing inks and colours are fantastic. Sounds like you've had a lot going on renovating your home and now off on a Caribbean cruise, life is good it seems :) Have a wonderful time in the warm sunshine xx

your cards are beautiful Sue - I'm so jealous of your papered bedroom - mine won't be done for ages - but I want it doing properly so have to wait!!! We still have the joy of a new boiler to be fitted and the bathroom to be gutted and redone before the decorators come in so I'm looking around Christmas!!!! Oh my 24 days on a caribbean cruise - now I'm positively green!!! Enjoy it all Sue xx
