All that glitters....

Hello,

Hope everything is good with you today. Oh it is so nippy nippy out there that wind is bitter. If it is cold where you are please wrap up.

I was very honored that Denise of Whimsy Stamps asked me to do a mini adding sparkle tutorial for her using one of the stunning Whimsy Images. I used the  gorgeous Cool Ride by the mega talented Crissy Armstrong. This is the card I made and here is the tutorial.



Thank you so much for looking!

love

Just adore the sparkling effect you add to your cards, you're actually the reason I bought my first Stickles glitter glue. ;o)

Cecilia said...

Hi Kim, Thanks so much for your overwelming and sweet comment. Because I was so incredibly busy with work, family and sports that I often did not have much inspiration to make a project. But then I always go to your blog and see the most amazing cards that the inspiration of at least the feeling again of wanting to make something was back. Thank YOU so much!!!
Big hug, Cecilia
