My cardstock is Stampin Up, the ribbon is American Arts, the leaf is from Lizzie Anne Designs Au Naturale set, the Thanks is from their Daisy Dots set. The glitter is part of a set by Making Memories and I put it on the card with good old fashioned white glue (like the kids use at school :)

My sister is SO talented! This is another one of her cards. Sorry the photo isn't very good. She has sparkles on the pink champagne and the hearts and the punch out hearts are the Giga Scallop Heart punch and the Mega Heart punch. We have been having a LOT of fun! Sorry about the lack of cards on my blog lately...so much to do so little time :D

MY SISTER IS COMING! She lands at around 3.30pm today!!! We are SO excited! She will obviously be exhausted when she gets here after travelling for about 17 hours! I was thinking about her a lot this morning and was inspired to make her this candle. The stamp is so beautiful I didn't want to do too much to the candle that might take your focus away from it so I added some beautiful green glitter (from the Making Memories Shimmer set) and voila...elegant and to the point!
The Stamp is from Joann's isn't it gorgeous! I attached the glitter with the 1/2" Terrifically Tacky Tape.
I love it when a plan comes together ;)

I started off by cutting out all the templates that they give you but I have to admit...I'm not that good with the scissors!!! SO, I decided to give myself a bit of a challenge and try to come up with a beautiful house without cutting out cardstock I really like the end result!
I started by sponging Brilliance Pearlescent Lime all over the house and then stamped the sparkle from Lizzie Anne Design's Holiday Cheer set in the same ink. I then wanted to highlight the windows without having to cut anything out so I had a 'AHA' moment! Why not use my punches! So the little windows are framed by punching with the Mega Rectangle punch and then the Giga Scalloped Rectangle punch, because they were too big I cut them down a couple of scallops and re-stuck them! The door is the Giga scalloped Rectangle punch for the green cardstock and the Mega scalloped rectangle punch for the stripy paper. The arched window took a little more thought...I punched out the top part (the arch) by using the Giga Scalloped Circle and the Mega circle punche and then the bottom part is made with the same rectangle punches. The stripy & red dotty cardstock are both from DCWV Christmas Glitter stack and the green is Bazzill Bling. The roof was decorated with Doodlebugs Christmas Sequins and then sprinkled with silver glitter from the Making Memories shimmer kit.
I have wanted to make one of these for a LONG time and I am very happy that I did. I love it!

I also had a photo taken with Lisa Bearnson - the founder of Creating Keepsakes! I haven't met anyone famous before (apart from Richard Cadell - the Sooty guy (Only British people will understand who that is!)) I will insert the photo as soon as I get it. It was taken on Tricia's Camera.
I am so excited about all the new products I have bought. Can't wait to get them on my eBay site!
Check back soon!!!
