Good evening everyone out there in blog land
Would love to say I have been slaving away in the garden and that the next patch of weeds has been killed off by my fair hands, alas good old English Bank Holiday weather and no such luck. Therefore spent the time shopping - nope not craft bits :( but the usual household weekly shop and some new solar lights.
I woke up this morning to a little sunshine, which came and went for most of the day but the wind is so bitter and we had the odd bit of hail along with a good show of lightning too. So I spent my time popping up to my "Beach Hut" creating this little piece. This is another of my family birthday cards, out the way. I love being prepared and I really enjoyed doing this one.
Anyway enough of my waffling and onto the card I hear you say. Well here it is in all its glory, it is a master piece of glitter to put the razzle and dazzle into anyone's birthday, which should match the glitz she will be wearing when she is partying the night away.
Not sure what style of card you call this, sort of going off on a tangent these days. Started out heading for an easel card, but then adapted it again. So several photo's again, so you can see all it's sides.
The base card is a pale mint green and the top papers are actually from a wedding pack by Papermania I believe. They all compliment each other so so well. The glitter has been used to edge all the main layers and the MS little heart punch and the single heart punch has been used too.
The base circle is from the Nellie circle set from the Hobby House along with the ribbon.
Oh she has not a care in the world.................................................
This butterfly is a new purchase from the Hobby House see it here with other designs, isn't it gorgeous and I glittered it all up with glitter purchased from the Hobby House also. The pearls were an extra gift from Simon Says Stamp (thank you Stephanie), yes my parcel arrived yesterday and I was trying to open it whilst I was being gowned up for my hair revamp. I had to borrow some scissors as it was wrapped so well. Oh did I forget to say I spent my two gift vouchers totally on the new colour copics :))
Here is Tilda gazing into the flowers.........................
The large rose is from Hobby Craft, the smaller ones and tiny ones, not sure of now sorry (but see where I shop)

Oh just been outside and it is dark (yes I know it is late) but today Matt and I purchased some new solar lights and placed them in the raised bed and around it. Oh they are on and they look great, can't wait till the weather sorts itself out so we can sit out too.
Oh well, must go to bed, my Friday late night is catching up with me and I would like to be as fresh as a daisy tomorrow - just in case the sun comes out.
Thank you to all of you out there in blog land who have visited me and left such lovely comments, I really do appreciate them each and every one.
Happy Crafting tomorrow (especially if you are in the UK - and the weather disappoints us again) at least our crafting lifts our hearts.
Hugs Kate xx
