No glitter and a freebie!!

Hi Girls

Well.......... no glitter on a card of mine?  Can you believe it????  But I so loved this image which is called Lollipop Ella by Lori Boyd Designs... and of course, she had to be done in beautiful bright colour.  She really cheered me up!

The red card is from my stash......  then I printed out some red on white dotty BP (download from Pink Petticoat)...I think Dotty should be my nickname as I am MAD on dots!  I then cut some nestie shapes and ran the square through an embossing folder too.  I coloured the image with my trusty pens (5 different reds in that dress! lol), and then cut her out and 3D'd her with some foam tape.  The sentiment is one of my own (free later in the post..) cut again with nesties, the lace heart is an MS punch, the heart pin is from The Ribbon Girl, the loose hearts are (I think) a small sizzix die... but had it so long I have no idea!  Then finished it all off with an organza ribbon bow!  Think thats all....

I tried and tried to find somewhere to put some glitter...... but sadly failed....  I think she just 'doesn't need' any!

Right....... onto my playing around with circular sentiments!  Yayyyyyyyyyy I'm getting there after spending hours in front of the monitor with eye ache!  I knew this flippin' machine would do it if I stuck at it long enough..... and sure enough... I produced this one.... along with a few others.  If you would like it, just click on the image to make it full size, then right click and save to your machine - you can resize it also if you wish when you come to use it.  Only condition is I would love to see what you create with it.  Deal?


It's my OH's day off today, but I don't think we're going anywhere - just getting a few jobs done around the house that are on the 'to do' list!  We have a problematic tap in the bath...... and he has to replace the 'gubbins'.  Hmmmmmm his DIY prowess isn't the world's best - but I have faith and I'm thinking positive! But if my tomorrow's post looks soggy, you'll know why........
