Blue Beauties!

It is Queen's Birthday Long Weekend here and tonight fireworks are going off all around us - it is very dramatic....they are always so spectacular....as kids growing up in New Zealand, we used to love 'Guy Fawkes' Night, which was on November 5 ...the family would get together with neighbours and we would all bring fireworks....as a child it was so exciting....we never thought is it as loud or that the weather is too cold....even now my DD1 is at a Youth Fireworks Night and sent me a text message saying 'It is awesome!!' God bless her, she took the time to let us know - wanted to share her excitement with us -made me feel good!!

I am on a run of humerous cards as I have had another order for them, so I cruise around SCS and 'Blogville' and look for different Sketch Challenges....this one is for this week's CCEE Stampers Challenge and also for the Twisted Sister Challenge....but the girls are gonna give me a hard time as I have CHEATED - this week we were to stamp on metal! Well I didn't...long story...bad day...say no more!!! So I thought rather than do nothing I would make a card with metal on it and as usual the family were keen to help and ate the crossiants that were on the aluminium tray...we then washed it and I ran it through the Cuttlebug - I love the look of it and use it fairly regularly - so sorry Sistah's...I had to be slack on this one....but at least I played!!!

These 'Gorgeous Gals are coloured with Chalks and a blender pen, I then added Kindy Glitz to the glass of 'bubbly' and also some silver touches on the jewelley and spotted dress - I am not sure it shows up much in the photo - you know how it is with BLING!! If you know the secret to photographing it - please let me know!!!

The gorgeous buttons were given to me during the week, along with many others - these ones are my favourites....buttons can make the best embellishments - I love to hunt through the bins of them at the Thrift shops....always good for something different!

Thank you for visiting with me - please leave a comment so I know you have been - it makes my day!!!
