Sunday, 8 November 2009


Wow! Another sunny day, how gorgeous is this autumn being (forget the odd rainy day), what a great day to lift the spirits. Of course today is Remembrance Sunday so please take a moment to give a thought to all those brave and courageous lads and ladies who have given their lives in past and present conflicts around the world so that we might enjoy days like this. God bless them.

So, onto today's challenges - I've chosen two with the same theme (cheapskate that I am) and we have
Totally Gorjuss Bling Bling and
Allsorts Challenge Bring Out Your Bling

Now, I am not one for using a lot of bling, so this was a bit out of my comfort zone and I think I may have gone a bit too far with the twinkles! See what you think ...

I used the Gorjuss Girls "Bumblebee" stamp from Sugar Nellie, paper pieced her dress with Little Sizzles rainbow paper, coloured what was left with Copics and then out came the glitter. Even in the sunshine it was hard to get a photo to show off the glitter so I had to take one with a flash just to prove it was there!

I used Anita's Sticky Ribbon with silver thread running through it (delicious) and lots and lots of gems. The big gem flowers have been in my stash for ages, I think they were some of the first embellishments I ever bought, as were the beautiful padded satin hearts.

I'm off now to see if I can squeeze in another challenge before lunch - as it's second Sunday of the month it's a bit of an upside down day for us as Church is this evening with a Latin Mass so it all becomes a little chaotic (not that you'd ever notice any difference in my mad life LOL!).

Hope you are all having a fab day and thanks for popping in to see me. Please don't be shy about leaving comments, if I know you have been to visit I can then pop over and see you too.

Hugs, Squirrel xx
