Well, it had to come.....

 Hi Lovely Bloggers....

Well, after a card without much girlie glitter, there had to come one WITH it!  My addiction is such that I just HAVE to have bling on my cards... at all costs!

Sooooooo without further ado, this is Princess Zoe, who is from Digi Stamp Boutique.  She is so girlie.... I just had to give her pink and glitter!  So, I coloured her with promarkers and glittered with prismaglitter, I then cut her out with my nesties.  I used a bazzill background, then I used a DP that came free with a mag this month, and put a band of card across with a MS border punch on both sides.  The daisies were in my ribbon stash so don't know where I got them from... as where the gem embellies.  I used two Stampin Up punches that I've had for years for the sentiment, which was computer generated.  And the organza flowers were from Mei Flower at the Harrogate show.  Think that's covered it all?

On the subject of the sentiment, I sent a link with the freebie ones that I'd done on my last post to the Free Digital Stamps website.  They've emailed me back to say they're not really interested as they could be typed easily and they are not word art.  Hmmm, I've got to say I'm quite disappointed, as they're done using a special font that I purchased, and then put into jpeg format in Photoshop so anyone can resize easily.  Ah well, I hope that they've been useful for the lovely people that commented - my lovely blogland buddies!

OK, rant over!  If anyone wants the Princess one, let me know and I'll send it to you!

Hugs and Happy Crafting!
