Ah, peace and quiet here in the studio.  I'm going to share a quick card from today's class and then I hope to start tackling my list of things that need to be wrapped up, finished or shared….I haven't felt like doing too much of late. 

We cleared the pink eye  up but then I managed to catch a sinus infection after the pink eye…I haven't had one of those in a long time and I've forgotten how miserable they are!  I knew it was coming…I bent over the beehives the other day while finally managing to close them up and I thought the top of my head was going to pop off.  So, I knew it was only a matter of time before I was MISERABLE!  I will spare you the gory details and share a lovely card instead!

Let's do glam and sparkly.   In honor, of the Breaking Dawn, Part 2 premiere….right?   Now, while I will readily admit to you that while I'm more a Team Jacob, kind of girl….I do adore the sparkle of our glimmer paper. It's gorgeous, yummy and is the best out there…sort of more, Team Edward but I digress….

Back to the glimmer paper.. it only comes in three colors, right….Silver, Champagne, and Red?  OH SO, not so!!  Here's a card that we did at class today and all I've done is spritzed reinker mixed in rubbing alchohol on to the silver glimmer and voila, green glimmer paper….I know, get out!  You can glam the silver into any color…Melon Mambo, Island Indigo, Concord Crush…you thought I'd gotten over my Concord Crush crush….again, not so!  So here's your challenge for the day.  Shoot me a shot of a card that you've glammed up and I'll be happy to share it here on the blog!
