What A Weekend

004a
First Things First: THE WINNER OF MY CANDY IS LINDA FROM LIN70S CRAFTING PLACE, could you please e-mail me Lin with your Snail Mail address so i can get the candy off to you as soon as possible

Thank you so much to Bev for letting you know my dilemma, what a nightmare!!! thank you all for your comments especially the SpecSavers ones they really did make me smile.  The thing is I did get 2 pairs but One Pair for Reading and One for TV watching!!  I was so fed up by yesterday with not being able to craft that I turned my Craft Room/Bedroom upside down trying to find an older pair of reading glasses, I eventually managed to find ones that are at least 3 years old and although not perfect, I can at least see the keyboard and screen WooHoo,  I will be picking up my mended glasses at Lunch Time so should be back on track by then.

Now to today's card which is my DT card for Wild Orchid Crafts.  This week we have a two fab prizes up for grabs, not only is Wild Orchid Crafts going to sponsor us with a fabulous floral prize, we also have Lili of the Valley as one of our regular sponsors and they have supplied  4 stamps from the new Christmas release.  So we will have two winners from the entries this challenge.
Prize 1

Prize 2

This week the challenge is Make it Sparkle, so we want to see lots of sparkles on your creations.

I have used one of Mo’s fabulous Christmas images for this card The Mint Fairy isn’t she charming.  Although you cannot see it much on the photo her wings and edges of her dress have all been glittered as have the flowers and punched snowflakes.  The Backing paper is also glittered to within an inch of its life, again I was a complete idiot and only bought one sheet but will defo go back to Oyster Stamps and order another couple of sheets, the paper is produced by Best Creations Inc.
006
The Cherry Blossom, 10mm Roses, Gardenia, Gypsophilia and Aster Daisys have all been glittered and are as usual from  Wild Orchid Crafts


005 
The Copis used to colour Mint Fairy are:
Flesh: E21, E00, E000, E0000
Hair: E37, £17, E13, E11, E50
Dress & Wings: BG13, Bg11, BG10
Peppermint Stick: R05, R02, R00, I have also used Glossy Accents on the sticks.
Thanks for looking, I will be away for most of this week but have scheduled all my DT card.  If you are interested this card is available to by on e-bay, click the link on the top of my sidebar.
