Nikki's Flowers

It's bragging time for me.....These gorgeous flowers were made by my Number One Downline Nikki. These are booking incentives on the back of the flower she has a flap that reveals what you get if you book a workshop. I want to book a workshop. When she sent me these pictures my jaw dropped they are just beautiful. Then when I saw them in person it was just as breath taking. She did such a great job I asked her if I could share them on my blog.

Thanks for taking the time to stop in for a look,

Thanks for stopping by and looking,


Stampin' Glitter Oh look what I've done!

I saw some wonderful cards and 3D items done with Stampin'Up! Glitters and I just had to give it a GO! I've had been playing around with the left over cardstock from the Wild Wasabi special. I tried making some round cards for fun. The first card is a Fathers Day card the kids are giving to their dad. The designer series paper says It's awesome! Dad has Chunky Glitter added in his favorite color green. On the inside Meghan stamped You Make My Life a Beautiful Thing. It turned out cute.

The second card looks more like Christmas......I think it's the colors, but we were just playing around having fun.
