Birthday Bling

Hello blogland thank you for stopping by my liitle corner of the the craft world today. As it's bank holiday weekend I hope you are all doing something fantastic!! I'm at work so not too exciting for me lol
Today I want to share with you a card I made for Lisa for her birthday, she should have it by now so I won't be spoiling her surprise.
This is my first card with the super Kenny K images, they will soon be a favourite of mine as they are great to work with. Once again I can't believe I haven't used them sooner.
The beautiful paper is just as good to touch as it is to look at, it's all furry and gorgeous and from Anna Griffin. The image is called Bling Baby and I'm not sure that it shows up too well in the picture but all her jewellery and belt is glittered with black and gold MS glitter and I think in real life looks fab! The little 'hugs heart' is Making Memories and the chip board letters are Heidi Grace.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Bling It On - A Digi Stamp & Bling
ABC - S is for Sparkle
Sir Stampalot - Ladies & Fashion
Kenny K Challenge  - Anything Goes

Have a lovely long weekend everyone

Hi Laurie
That card is SOOOOOO perfect for Lisa.. I'm sure she absolutely loved it! There is certainly a 'look' of her in there somewhere! Love those papers... can't believe AG has furry papers..... they're fab!
We're not doing anything special...... just enjoying the sunshine in the garden and getting some plants tended.
Don't work too hard... and as Lisa says..... me time is important!

Hi Laurie,

Goldie!!! - is still making me chuckle! ;-)) This is fabulous!! You really have to zoom in to see it properly and it's gorgeous!! I love the hair and the glasses look SO real. Your colouring is amazing, really, really good! Love the hair and the boots and glitter, well everything - it's just perfect.! I might have to get some of that paper!!! I love animal print, I would probably be stroking it all the time though like Blofeld! tee hee

Have a lovely weekend!
Love Sue xx

Thanks for popping by
my Grandson has decided he wanted to stay with Grandma tonight so he's tucked up in bed now, its so upsetting for him..he worries before he has to go in and to have it cancelled last minute is just not fair for any 4yr old thank you for your kind and caring comment
