It's Your Day! So you should probably play with glitter. Just say'n.

Mostly because I love glitter and it is shiny and it is sparkly and it makes me happy. You should play with it because it will make you happy, too. Oh, and it will probably make your dog happy, too, as if you play with it, she will likely be wearing at least some of the wonderful shimmery stuff. Not that I know this from experience or anything. Purely conjecture, here folks, purely conjecture. Just say'n.

OH! Before I get on to the glitter don't forget to check out the TWO open giveaways listed above! Awesomeness all around! And I have another one coming hopefully this weekend! Yikes! It's a regular party around here!

Now...on to the GLITTER!!!!!!!!!

It's Your Day!


Hmmmm...glitter makes me happy. Did I say that already? Probably not enough if I did. 'Cause....it REALLY makes me happy. I created this card based on the fabulous Beads and Baubles Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World. I've had this sucker made for like three days and I have been DYING to show you! I love it! HA! This is the trigger photo:



All I saw was sparkle and fabulousness! I loved the flow of the piece from the top corner the bottom right, as well, so I had to play on that in my design, too! The colors influenced my choice in glitters and I added that simple, final touch of the cabochon flower based on the gorgeous flowers in the inspiration photo.

It's Your Day (detail 1)


I used Helmar ZapDots to adhere the glitter in perfect little circles. The glitter is Martha Stewart and Pink Paislee. I pulled out my Samantha Walker for Unity Stamp Sweet Life set for the sentiment! I added just a bit of twine from The Twinery to ground it.

It's your Day! (detail 2)


I don't know about you guys, but I had a SPECTACULAR day yesterday! So, today, It's YOUR DAY!!! Make it a spectacular one! A Stupendous one, even! Pretty much just be awesome and stuff. K? K. Good. Glad we got that settled.

Happy Friday, folks! Shine on!

Jingle Out.

I end up WEARING my glitter and leaving shiny little trails of it everywhere I go. FUN! I tell people it's not because I'm MESSY but because I'm ... MAGIC! BWAHAHAHAHA! Only setback it when I use GLASS glitter. That stuff can CUT if a finger or bare foot happens upon a stray piece. LOVE your happy card! You are DEFINITELY better at controlling that naughty stuff than I am.

bethann said...

this would really make me happy. i'm not usually a glitter gal, it seems a little too flashy for me, trying to change that.

LBP said...

You would have loved my kitchen nook carpet last night! I started putting in the "glitttery snow" in my display cupboard shelves. You know that fake, stuffing looking, snow you put down for your Christmas village? I had red, green, silver and gold glitter all over my carpet. And for a moment I thought, I should just leave it because it is so pretty... but in the end I swept it up. But the shelves look glittery!

Blessings

What a cute card! I like glitter too. I haven't yet thought to make my doggy sparkly. I have sparkled myself, my kids, my (unwilling) husband, the table, the floor, and generally everywhere I walk after making a sparkly card. :-) I tell people I'm a princess...I'm not sure they believe me, LOL!

Cath said...
