told you the glitter would be back....

Hi Girls

Just a quickie tonight... as we've been out all day and am going to put my feet up in a tic!  We went across to Skipton to meet some good friends... and of course, on the way back, had to call in at my fav craft shop at Embsay (Samuel Taylor - Click on Crafts).  And (hmmmm of course), I just had to spend a little.... well, you've got to show willing haven't you?



Anyway, this was a card I made yesterday and didn't know what to put on as a sentiment.  And today I bought a Tim Holtz typewriter alphabet strip (think it's made by Sizzix), and it was perfect for what I wanted - young and funky!  The image on the card is from Funky Kits and is Manga Girl #1 - a Sugar Nellie design.  I've done my best at embossing and 3D'ing it like Debby does... but still have wrinkles!  The DP is from a Sweet Fairy pad by Prima... and there is bazzill card backing it.  I've used my nesties for the shape which was run through a swiss dots embossing folder, and distressed the edges and added stickles with EXTRA glitter (well I had to make up for the lack recently... didn't I??) 


Right, I think that's all.....  but just wanted to tell you all that as it's my birthday early next month, I'm gearing up to do some CANDY and have some nice things I've collected put by for it!  But I'll have to have instructions on how to do the linky thing etc...   Anyway, watch this space please!

Thanks all for looking - and a special welcome to my new follower Katy who gave me endless advice at Embsay today - her cards are absolutely FABULOUS and I'm now going to wander over to her blog to have a look!

Big hugs to all
