New Challenge at Squigglefly

Coffee of the Day is actually tea 'cause I am fighting the flu - Earl Grey with Lavender (hubby was so sweet and picked this up for me! he's such a blessing to me!)

Sorry that I have been away for a while, but man oh man, a nasty ol' flu bug grabbed a hold of me last week and still hasn't let go. I feel like I have been beat with a whammy stick, run over by a Mack truck, hit with a freight train, and then left out in the freezing rain for months on end. then my poor tummy is a whole other story, but no more of THAT!!!

Today is a new challenge over at Squigglefly! This week the challenge is to make a mostly white card that shimmer shines! Be sure to play along, as there are now prizes every week. All you have to do is use a Squigglefly image (there are freebies available at the store site), and link your creation to the challenge site.

Well, you know that white space is NOT a friend of mine, so this was really a BIG challenge for me. I decided to start with this precious image by Lynne Stansbery called Winter Friends. The papers are Basic Grey Wisteria. Now there is shine ALL OVER this card that didn't scan well, so I am gonna tell you about it! grins! To start, the pink boots ('cause every girl would want a pair of bright pink glittery wellies, dontcha think? I know I STILL want some!!! giggles!) are painted in pink shimmerz, the coat in celery shimmerz, and the mittens in December Sky blingz. The ground is coated with chunky glitter. Little snowflakes are added in the sky with frosted stickles. The papers are outlined with my spica glitter pen. The snowflakes along the card's edge & above the main image are actually silver sequins, as is the little baby sequin below the main image. The edge of the coat and hood are covered in white flower soft. I added some vintage laces (double row) and vintage buttons to finish it off.

Stop by the other DT members blogs to see their creations, and then go get started on your own! I know you will have lots of fun creating! :)

p.s. I found out that one of the cards I made has been featured at SNR for the week and another made the top 5 featured at Little Red Wagon. so play in those challenges and post your cards to the galleries! you just never know.......
