Tickled Pink Get Sparkly!

Hey there everyone
It's been a great weekend here in the Thomas household...lots of fun with friends and plenty of time to make cards:)

I decided to have a go at the Tickled Pink sketch challenge and lets just say I got a bit glitter happy! If you haven't seen the sketch, you can check it out here.  It seemed to take ages to put this together and I'm not really sure how I feel about it....maybe it will grow on me.

I started by cutting up my DSP into small squares and faux stitching them to some white card stock. I distressed the edges then just went for it!  Glitter, flowers, hearts, the whole nine yards:) I think what I'm not sure about is the butterfly in the DSP, it's a little distracting but it was the only blue DSP I had, so what's a girl to do??

I also made use of my Cricut today for the first time in ages. I connected it to my computer and I'm loving it! So much easier than trying to guess the right size/shape from the cartridge.

I'm really not looking forward to going back to work tomorrow.  I'm on the countdown to Christmas and my long service leave.  Six whole weeks of no school drop offs and no work, I can't wait! Until then however it's all about websites and rewriting content (and a little bit of card making in between)
have a good week
hugs Kirsty

Love it, the blues are so soft and pretty. I did not notice the butterly until I looked really closly. It looked like an embellie. xox
