Wow, there's a lot of blingy stuff going on with my card! LOL! You can't really see it but even the designer papers have glitters! The cake image is a actually the print on the designer paper. I thought it was perfect because it has glitter on the cake. . .:) The heart beads have rhinestones in the center of them. I've had these beads like. . .forever. I think at least 5 years. It's one of those cheap bead packs that came in a huge set. . .made for kids to create bracelets and necklaces. LOL! Hey, it works! The flower also has a ton of glitter on it. . .the flower is by Prima Flowers. . .I didn't mess around with this challenge! You want bling. . .you've got it!!


Isn't the flower pretty? Hey. . .I'm sorry I haven't been posting daily. . just on days when I have DT stuff going on. First of all, I've sort of lost my "paper crafting" mojo . . .I'm not sure why. I think with my cleaning and organizing of my craft room, garage, and well, basically every room in my house. . .I've been so busy . . furthermore, I've been concentrating a lot on crocheting. I've created a whole bunch of scarves, beanies, baby hats, doilies, pot holders, and I just finished crocheting a "mini drawstring bag". Right now I'm in the middle of crocheting a duffle bag. . .Yay! So fun! But. . . this weekend, I'm going to concentrate on creating a few paper crafting projects. Really. . .I will. . .:)



Before I go. . .I wanted to share this song by Britt Nicole. . .she has a new single out. It's called "Hanging On". She's a Christian singer but her songs are universal. . you can relate to her songs even if you're not religious . .:) All of them are so inspiring. I have a friend who is going through a very rough time and I wanted to dedicate this song to him. I wish him the best and that he'll be back to his happy self again real soon. If you're going through a rough time. . .I dedicate this song to you too. . .hope it makes you smile . . .at least for a moment. Just hang in there. . .life will get better. . .:)

Anyway. . .I hope you all have a beautiful and blessed Saturday.
