Gorjuss chrimbles!!

 Afternoon Peeps!!!
I have had a busy morning pootling around everyone so I had to wait until now with my trusty cuppa in hand to bloggy my little sparkly card yet not a card!!! I made it last night for 2 challenges, they are...

So, above is a piccy of my card not yet a card! Its in the shape of a gift tag and it was from the fabulous Adela. You can find it HERE in Adela's yummy shop!

I had total fun with this one!! and even used my stamp that I bought from Clare in the summer holidays!! didn't take me long to ink this one up then.....:)
Here is a half opened "oooh what is it" side view!!!
 and here it is all opened (....including the fake £5 I googled and printed out to pop in it.....Lou's mind thikns oooooh fab super cheap looks so real!!!!)
I added lots of glittery sparkle to it using diamond stickles around the layer of patterened paper, sakura starburst pen for the teeny stars on her dress and a good old sprinkling of silver metallic thread stitched into the punched border piece and fluffed out behind the sentiment circle.

I am loving the non traditional colours on my patterned papers. They are (...of course :)   ) Funky Hand papers from the Angel On The Tree colourway of the new Twelve Crafters Crafting papercraft factory, I love it!! (last night I was working on a bit of something with the Vintage Christmas colourway but you will have to wait until next week for that one!!!)

Right then, I am off for a bloggy/facebook catch up before I go and fetch Little Mo and pop in on my mum!

Huge hugs, thank you for popping in on me!!

    PS - sorry to read that you have lost your dog, it is heartbreaking when we loose a pet isn't it. They are such big parts of our families that loosing them is horrible.
