Sooooo pink, soooooo glittery....... soooooo me!!

Hi everyone..

I've just come back from the dentist where I've had yet more work done (another root canal filling.... yuck(!) so I've come on blogger to take my mind off what may be to come when the injection wears off! I keep hoping to have got to the end of the dental work... but still have the jaw inflammation. Fingers (and everything else) crossed that it'll all calm down now... I'm so fed up of it all! So I'm going to think positive!!!!

Onto my card.... as I'd done a card or two without my favourite pinks and glitters lately, it just had to come. I went overboard! But.... it's my type of card.... and it made me happy, so what the heck!

I used the first of my Saturated Canary images (confession - I've bought a few lately...) This one is Whispy - A Fairy, and she's from the uber talented Krista Smith on Etsy. Well ....... she just HAD to have a pink dress, didn't she? And then, she just had to have my most gorgeous DP - which is Crea Diem from Maja Designs (I got it from Tracy at Designs to Die For...) and it was all Laurie's (Designer Diva) fault for using this paper on her card last week. I distressed the edges of the paper (I got distressed while doing it to such lush paper too!) ALSO Laurie's fault was the heart die that I've used - it's a Doo Hickey Die Romantic Lace (I got it from Sir Stampalot). So this card cost me roughly about £20!! Your fault Laurie!!! hehe!

Anyway, as you can see, she's coloured with Copics and Promarkers... her overskirt and wings glittered with glamour dust... the oval is a nestie.... then I inked and distressed the edges of the oval and glittered them with Stickles Icicles... (mmmm!) which actually let the pink inked edge show through. I decided she needed a lovely big bow, so I used some wide ribbon from my stash that I'd bought from The Ribbon Girl a while ago.. I felt she just NEEDED that glamour alongside her..... right??? I finished the card off with a few diamante gems from my stash.. then had to stop myself going any further! Hope you like..

Can I just say a big welcome to my new followers - it's lovely to have you wanting to follow my makings... (and my ramblings) and for all your kind comments on my video tutorial. I promise I will try to do another one soon!

Big Hugs and Happy Crafting..
