You're in my prayers..... with GLITTER! :)

Coffee of the Day - dreaming of a lovely latte sipped along the sidewalks of Paris... wanna come along? :)

Well you should know by now that I have quite an interesting relationship with God. I talk to Him quite often throughout the day - much like texting or IM'ing a friend you can't get enough of. David just rolls his eyes when I describe it, because everyone has a different kind of God relationship - that is the beauty really. So does it come as any surprise to you that mine would involve pink glitter? :) no, probably not. grins! it doesn't surprise God either. I have been praying for so many people lately, I really needed more cards of this type to mail out to some of them.

A fun challenge going on the past 2 weeks in the SNR Squigglefly group was to create any kind of project using one of their images and glitter. well, I actually used 2 from this beautiful digi package called Fancy Flowers. It comes with about 6 images and was designed by Nina Brackett. I love its versatility! and of course I had to go PINK!

Because the challenge called for glitter, I printed this onto SU!'s shimmery white cs. Once the watercoloring was done, I stamped over both images with SU!'s retired "Script" bg stamp. The butterfly has it, too, but it doesn't show as well. I like the subtleness of it though. Edges were distressed as all get out, matted, and then covered in worn lipstick distressed stickles. The papers are K & Co. Wild Raspberry. I sure don't know what I am gonna do when I run out of that paper pad, 'cause it is discontinued and probably one of my all time faves from them. I mean, I use it ALL the time..... Anyway, I found this GORGEOUS trim pack from Fancy Pants when I was sorting through stuff the other day, and it seemed a perfect fit here. Added some Primas from Rhonda, vintage buttons, and a velvet millenery leaf. oh my stars!!!! I almost forgot all of the pretty shimmerz!!!! how could I do that?!?!?! I painted pink and butter cream shimmerz on various leaves & petals of the flower as well as wings of the butterfly. The body of the butterfly also has rock candy distress stickles to give it a little extra oomph.

The glitter challenge ended on Wed. and a new one has begun. Please check out the SNR group to see what fun Holly has going for us!

I hope you are having a truly lovely day! :)
