Getting back in the groove..

With summer winding down and the hot hot days we've had, I just haven't been in the creative mode I like to be in. Since we had a storm come in and kick out the humidity- today was FAB-YOU-LOUS! So after getting the house all cleaned up and ready for the week, I sat down and created a bit.
This card is for the 2sketches4you challenge- Laura's 33 sketch. Kelly- my sister- gave me this super adorable glitter chips she got clearance by K&Co- I grabbed my scraps carton and got to work. I used bobunny cardstock, some K&Co dot paper and a bit of DCWV glitter paper.
I also got some swiss dots embossed cardstock I cut into a circle, and placed that on some green glitter paper- also DCWV. I added a bit of Bobunny dot ribbon, a button and floss tie on the top of the cherry stems. Then I used some old thickers from Am. Crafts for the greeting.
I also added a bit of the tiny dot paper along the edge, and scalloped with scissors.

Had to include a close up to show you the glitter!
Next I did the Mojo Monday Challenge- I've never done this one before- so it was fun to try a new challenge blog.
The sketch was fab and I got out these MAMBI glitter chips that I bought a while ago and keep trying to pull out- I used the popsicle. Added in some K&CO paper- also a gift from my sister.


I kept this one simple- mostly cardstock, but did add in a bit of orange glitter paper- I scalloped the blue cardstock and cut a white circle I cut with smaller scallops. I printed the sentiment- don't see that much nowadays do we? and added a few teal gems, and teal button.


Here is another close up to show the glitter off a bit better.
thanks for dropping in!
be sure to drop by Kelly's blog for her blog candy giveaway- I will be doing one myself this week- in celebration of my 20,000 th blog hit!

So pretty! I love all the flitter :o) I can't decide if the cherries or the popsicle is my favorite, but you could send either one to my mailbox and I wouldn't complain ;o)
