glitter and glitz challenge!!

Wow, a mega migraine knocked me back yesterday and for a bit of this morning but then scott took me to tesco's to get some migraine tablets, took 2 and I am feeling quite good at the minute!!!!
I have even managed to make 2 cards in as many hours ( lou thinks these could be great tablets and she will have a migraine more often!!! romfl!!!).

My first card is my entry for the 'Glitter and glitz' challenge over on penny black at allsorts.

I have had this penny black t is for transparent critters party stamp set in my stamp stash for 2 years or so!!! I have made one card using it but I got it out this morning, dusted it off and stamped away to make this gorgeous card for scott's mum's birthday next week. ( i am posting this in the hope that they have left for the caravan and she doesn't have a sneaky peek at my blog before she goes......!!!!!!)

I coloured it up with my promarkers and added lots of versamark brilliance dazzle, and a bit of at you spica glitter pen dazzle to the cake and candle. I glazed icing and the candle flame for good measure too!! The little acetate butterflies have got glitter on the back of them too that just sparkles through the acetate beautifully.
I made the mum bit with my bargain find thickers from tkmaxx. I put a bit of versamark brilliance on the letters and the roses to glitter them up a bit and the little fronds are one of my yummy marthas!!

The dark green card base is pearlescent cardstock and the gorgeous linen texture looking paper is from my funkyhand deams come true cd, the faux stitching on them is my gorgeous new kelly panacci stamp set ( enabled by the lovely Lou and Fleur xxxxxxxx).

Now onto my second card of the day!!! this card is for my lovely sister in law, verity. I love her to bits but haven't seen her much this year :(. The 2 gorgeous little people on the front are my niece and nephew. My very amazing hubby took this picture of them a few weeks ago when we had a play day at our local nature park, it has a gorgeous park.
I have used my gorgeous funkyhand paper again ( one piece of A4 for 2 card is fab!!). After seeing kathy's fantastic holey cards I just had to do another one with a big window and went for a circle to go with the tunnel they were playing in whe this photo was taken. There was a little girl behind rufus but the magic that is my husband edited her out for me so I could have just rufus and harriet in the piccy.

The swirls are my magnolia swirly stamp ( yup, enabled by Lou again!!!) stamped with frayed burlap distress ink. Inside te card the paper is one of my free my minds eye papers from a mag and a bit more swirly stamp and ink. I cut around the photo where harriet's foot was to make thm pop out a bit.I love how this turned out.
Apologies for if my writing and sentences are a bit waffley, these tablets make me feel a little squiffy!!!! Right off for a womble with mo and the dog, think the fresh air will do me good and it looks terribly like rain again so I had better sneak out while I can!!
Thank you so much for popping in on me,
Big hugs Lou xxxxxxxx
