 I made 2 cards to share today, one for a boy and one for a girl to be fair :-)

I just had to use a Simon on his birthday :-)

Isn't he adorable holding onto all those balloons ! bless him :-) I think this is pretty self explanatory, just to add that I shaped the balloons with a McGill tool to 'round' them and make them look more ,,, well,, like a balloon :-)

Next up is a shaker style card. I coloured the acetate with Alcohol Inks and then used Sequins for the 'shake' 

 I have a confession to make here. I really wanted to stamp the sentiment directly onto the card, I forgot until after it had all be adhered with dimensional adhesives and when I tried it mis- stamped so I had to improvise and add the banner. I think it looks OK, but would stamp the sentiment directly onto the card if I were to make another one :-) We live and learn eh !

Wild Rose Studio 'Baubles'

Hi all :-) Did you know that there are only 266 days left to Christmas ?!  It will be here before you know it so you had better start making your cards now to avoid the Christmas rush :-D

The theme this fortnight on the ABC Christmas Challenge was chosen by the lovely Wilma ,,,

free glitter text and family website at
I used a Wild Rose Studio 'Baubles' image, I have had this stamp a while and never inked it up so it was about time ! and I LOVE it ! 

I wanted to keep this CAS, easier to post :-) I silver heat embossed the image and then used dye inks to add a spot of colour before smothering the baubles in stickles. For the sentiment I used Judikins Sticky Embossing Powder and then sprinkled with Glitter Ritz Glitter, this doesn't show up very well on the photo but is lovely and sparkly IRL :-)

We are sponsored by Kenny K so some fabulous digi images on offer this time !! :-)

Prize is 3 digital images

Make Something Monday ,,, Sparkle
Sparkle N Sprinkle ,,, AG with Glitter, Embossing, Flocking
