Sherri Baldy Challenge- Make it Sparkle

This is another that I've really enjoyed sparkle!!! I coloured the little bumble bee with promarkers. Applied a little glue with a quickie glue pen to the wing and hearts..a sprinkling of diamond dust to finish.To give her eyes that little twinkle I used a Sakura clear glaze pen.
 Just to add more sparkle, she was mounted onto glitter card stock and some vellum flowers that were also glittered a little were added!!!
Whilst everything was drying I made a few little dangly charms from a few beads and covered the makings with a ribbon bow.
Liquid pearls were then dotted around the outside for extra embellishment.

The ribbon was attached with extra strength doublesided adhesive and liquid pearls dabbed in the centre of the flowers and the leaves had stickles added...
...and thats my sparkly bumble bee....

Last weekend was Mothering Sunday..I decided on a twisted easel card and a Saturated Canary image..It was a little out of my comfort zone as I don not usually use pastel tones
My entry for the Sherri Baldy Challenge...
I did a little research for this as I wanted to do a different colour for the strawberry..and there is a white/yellow my strawberry may be different but is still indeed factually correct.
I used Spellbinders dies for making embellishment to the card, with a few crotchet flowers and button centres..


Well I can hardly believe it...My little strawberry won....thats the first time I've ever won anything for a card....Thanks soooooo much Sherri xxxx

Well going back to work did have a little I was asked to do a get well card for another of my colleagues who is in hospital...btw..the card making bit is the benefit hehehe....Speedy recovery Ann!!!!

I am noticing a lot of friend requests from other crafters on least 6 in the last week...I must be doing something right then!!! Its lovely to make new friends even tho they are only online...hopefully I will be able to learn new things from them and improve my skills.

After a few hours of working I am totally shattered...I hope that I can get myself sorted soon!!!

 As you can tell by the amount of posts on this blog recently, I have been off on sick leave for some time.
However, today was my first day back to work..allbeit on a phased in process. Today I did 3 hours and to be honest after a few hours I had had enough..Its surprising what stress and depresion can do to your body along side your mental health. I feel physically drained.

During the last week of my absence, I created 2 very different cards using the same Sherri Baldy image..
I really enjoy using Sherri's digis as they give scope to use plent of lovely bright and neon tones of colour.
I'm not a big fan of pale and wishywashy pastels..much prefer to see a card coming at 50 paces rather that it being lost amonst 20 others on the mantel piece.
