JMHS Anything Goes + Glitter

Hello peeps, and welcome to Squirrel Towers for the second time today!  You can find my earlier post with this link Red White & Penguin.

It's been aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages since I got to play with the JUST MAGNOLIA / HANGLAR / STANGLAR challenge so I was desperate not to miss out this time for the Simon Says Stamp Monthly Special.  The theme is Anything Goes with the optional extra of Glitter.

My bestest bud, Julie-Pig, has a birthday coming up and I am determined that I am not going to forget it like I did last year (oh the shame of it!) and so I've taken this opportunity to make her card now.  Like me, Jules is motorsport mad - when we shared an office together it used to be tense on Monday mornings, depending on who had won the grand prix the day before, lol - she supported Michael Schumacher but I was a Damon Hill girl, and we all know what happened there!  Anyway, here is my card


I love this new Tilda with her chequered flags, just look at those saucy hips of hers!  She'd make a brilliant grid girl.  Painted in Distress Inks and then her shirt is glittered with Hero Arts Prisma Glitter.  Black checked and spotted papers are Crafts Too and the red is from scraps box.  Red and white Bakers' Twine from my darlin' pal Helen (thanks babes, I'll be buying more of this), a Hero Arts sentiment and 5 red gems for start lights, except theirs don't go round corners.

Hugs, Sxx

Love that hip action! Your friend is going to go wild when she sees this gem. Also got a real kick out of the pile of red/white/blue penguins. I love penguins. You sound a bit better in this post, hope that means you got to relax a bit in the crafty room!
