Hope that Glitters

Just a couple more cards I made today for some of the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges over on SCS that use glitter!

This first one is for SC407 for the sketch, Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #14 to use text somewhere on your card and for Friday MashUp's Challenge #81 to use a Christmas ornament and sparkle. I used a fair amount of sparkle on this one - silver glitter card, silver glitter rickrack and some Stickles, but boy did my Stickles give me grief! I couldn't get it to squeeze out of the tube, so pulled the top off, poked around in it and tried again but no luck. Did the whole thing again, trimmed off a bit of the nozzle, but still nothing! So..I squeezed with all my puny strength, heard a big pop and glitter glue was suddenly everywhere, all over the card, desk, ink pads and even on the TV screen! LMAO!

And my next card is for Hope You Can Cling To Challenge 15B to use a lot of glitter (I didn't over do it, but I think that big huge strawberry coated in glitter is just perfect!), Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #120 and Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #239 to use glitter as well. I got my new Waltzing Mouse stamps the other day and was spoilt for choice for what to use! I just had to go for this fab strawberry! I didn't really think I would need any more strawberry stamps as I have at least three already but this one is so huge! I love it!!!

And that's all from me today folks! Thanks for stopping by! Off out on a jolly tomorrow for some SU training with my lovely friends Monica and Bekka and my lovely downline Mandy, so won't be posting any cards! Have fun!
