A bit of glitter and Saturday candy



Morning Peeps, hope everyone is OK and enjoying this lovely spell of sunshine, fingers crosses it lasts the weekend. I spend a few hours out in it yesterday helping check and secure the fences before the horses are turned out for their first Summer graze and it was lovely to feel the warmth.

It's time for a new challenge at Allsorts and Tracy Mouse wants us to 'Add Some Glitter' and everyone who knows her will realise she has a bit of a penchant for a bit of sparkle.................as do most of us if we are honest, so nice choice Tracy.

I have used Modern Flower 4 from one of this weeks sponsors DigiStamp Boutique, paper piecing it to match the side pane with Nitwits DP, a little subtle inking with Spun Sugar, a bow and Marianne  rose, Cheery Lynn lattice and some liberal glittering of the rose, black liquid pearls and image. I also took a close up of the flower to show what I really did glitter up as it's not too evident on the main picture.

I am thinking this theme will be right on song for lots of you and look forward to seeing all your lovely entries.

And now for the winner of last weeks candy who is Ali from her comment on Monday's post, please mail me with your full postal addy so I can your goodies in the post to you.

And this week I have a pretty set of floral stamps for you, as usual a winner will be selected at random from all comments left this week, if you visit more than one then all comments will go into the draw. All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is:

1) You are a follower 

2) Pop the Saturday Candy logo from my sidebar on your own blog

Have a lovely weekend everyone, the weather man assures us it's going to be barbie weather so lets hope he's got it right.

Good morning Brenda, after a hot day yesterday we have woken up to cloud cover..let's hope the sun breaks through later. What a lovely card today, so many yummy die cuts there and I spy my favourite oval floral one...isn't it the best! You have used a very pretty paper and it shows off the image perfectly. Hope you get some more outdoors weather and enjoy the bank holiday.

Pretty in pink, lovely card and thanks brenda

Paula (PEP) said...

Your trellis side panel really tricks the brain into thinking flowers growing up one when looking at the is & I love the way all the spots overlap with one another & emphasized beautifully with your black gems/pearls. Super idea with the scalloped oval inside the ornate frame of the outer & with the rounded blossoms enhancing the scallops.......lots going on this which makes the whole cohere beautifully......... sorry about getting so lyrical......
Warmth here too which is most welcome as are the butterflies & bees.
