Merry Monday #33!!!

I have been wanting to join the Merry Monday Challenge on a regular basis, but life just won't seem to allow me the when I do get to play along, I'm giddy like a little girl on Christmas morning ~ how fitting!!! And now that I see the sketch challenge, I realized that I forgot my bow at the top of my card...I sure hope that's okay Lesley! I really enjoy putting this together and it sparkles like crazy...although the picture doesn't do it justice at all!...I used my homemade shimmer mist using rubbing alcohol and Frost White Shimmer Paint, I misted the card and the ornaments! I also used my Dazzling Details on the ornaments on both sides, take a closer look and you'll see the sparkle...see!!!!!

 These ornaments where stamped twice, used my Framelits Dies adhered my gold cord and then kissed these ornaments together! Then I got out the bling!!! Love it! And as you can see below, these ornaments are free flowing on the card!

I masked the inside of my card and then sponged using Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso...still not sure how I feel about this part of the card, but it's on there now! What do you think???

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope that I have left you with a little inspiration! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to drop me a line ~ Have a wonderful day!

Here is our youngest grandson wearing the same little coat that his Daddy used to wear...our boys love to play at grampa's pond....

 If you live in Winnipeg or the vicinity and would like to host a party I would love to come and stamp with you and your friends!! Or, if space is an issue, come here and create with me at one of my many clubs or classes! Drop me a line for further info! I'd love to meet you! Enjoy your day!

  7. I remember that conversation you and I had back in the beginning of summer and I've been trying to get to this ever since. Maybe we should discuss it again???;)
    I love these ornaments and all the bling on this card. And look at your distressed edges....great job. I'm looking forward to seeing this IRL to see all the sparkle.
