Hello snarky pals and happy Saturday to you all!
It's time for the new challenge at the
This fortnight, we want to see GLITTER on your projects!
I went the safe route and used Glitz Glitter Gel through a stencil:

Lots of NBUS (never before used stuff) on this card: that stencil,
the Let it snow die, and also that adorable snowman die. No
snark this time. This was just too cute to add snark. LOL! A 
simple sentiment finishes the inside:

I hope that you'll join us in our glitter challenge at the

Birthday balloons

Hello and happy Friday!
I have a card to share with you, using
the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

and the inside:

Broke out a cute balloon die and paired it
with some fun confetti paper. I did a bit of shading
on the balloons to give them a little depth. With
my crack photography skills, it's hard to see. LOL!

I hope that you have a great rest of your day. Thanks
for visiting!

A wintery birthday

 Hello and welcome crafty friends!
I'm popping in with a card I made last night
and am finally getting around to blogging about it.

Here's the inside:

I shopped my stash for this birch tree die cut. No new items
used. We just moved and right now I'm spending money on
the house. It was soooo hard not to take advantage of all
the end of year sales like I usually do. LOL!

I sponged a couple shades of blue Distress Inks for my background,
then misted it with white shimmer spray. I inked a scrap of white card stock
with the lighter ink pad, directly to the paper, then stamped my
birthday sentiment. I really like the simplicity of the design.

That's it for now. Thanks for visiting, and I hope you enjoy
the rest of your day!

I'm actually revisiting a card idea that I came up with here. And again,
you won't hear this Christmas song in quite the same way.  LOL!
