Fresh and Sparkly


With the Holidays fast approaching, my multi-tasking skills are getting a workout! I’ve been sooo busy with family parties, Thanksgiving travel, planning my annual Cocktail Party ( which is tomorrow night!) and, of course, shopping!Even my card is a multi tasker. It’s being submitted to two challenges.

PPA ChallengePals Paper Arts challenged us to “put on the Ritz” , adding some glam,bling,sparkle or polish to our card.

Freshly Made sketchesThe girls over at Freshly Made Sketches challenged us with a simple ( but stunning) sketch   .

…and this is what i came up with. Why don’t sparkles ever photograph well? Believe me, this card sparkles!!! I just received a BIG box from Stampin’ Up ( Merry Christmas to me) and couldn’t wait to try my Christmas stamps. SU glitter paper shines as the background for the glittered & embossed  Snow Swirled tree on Night of Navy DSP .

I finally will have some free time after Sunday and cannot wait to do some serious stamping!!!!!

I'm Valari and I live to make stuff!! Ever since I was a little kid, I've always been making something..doll clothes,crocheting corny gifts,sewing my own clothes (and much to their chagrin,my kids clothes). Paper has been my latest ( and longest) obsession. My HE (husband equivalent) and I have a farm in central NY, not far from the Home of Baseball. Cooperstown NY and I have two wonderful sons who I wish weren't all grown up. Please don't take anything I say/write/post too seriously...I don't! Thank you for letting me share my thoughts!!
