Howdy, peeps! Thank goodness it’s Friday! Wow, it was so chilly yesterday here in SE PA, I wore a sweatshirt almost all day! Can you say “refreshing”?! Loved it! It felt like fall, and my new orange and black glitter from the holiday mini was calling my name, so I made a silly Halloween card:
I was really just sort of experimenting with my glitter, having fun with it! First, let me tell you…don’t let the price of it throw you off; these are fairly good size jars of glitter, so I think you get a lot for your buck! You’ll be able to do lots of Halloween glittering with these! I used an Adhesive Sheet adhered to a circle of Basic Black for my circular background. I adhered my Smoky Gray embossed piece to it first, then simply sprinkled the black glitter on top! Easy…the adhesive sheet provides a nice even surface to which the glitter can stick! Then of course, I HAD to use the orange, so I ran a few lines of Sticky Strip across the panels and sprinkled them with the orange glitter! Wheeee! I glittered up the pumpkin and the bird’s hat too! Don’t look too hard at my sewing. I just had my machine fixed (I dropped it, remember?) and I am getting used to the new tension. I’ll have to practice on that! Here’s a closeup:
I used the Pals Paper Arts
sketch from this week, but I flipped the sketch so my bird would be looking inward:
So, it’s not the most elegant card out there, but like I said, I was having fun with that glitter! And this is the way I store my glitter….in Gerber baby food containers:
I know this isn’t a very good picture, but you get the idea. The glitter fits in it perfectly, it sits neatly in my drawer and the glitter is all contained inside the container. If you don’t have any babies, just go buy some baby food applesauce and eat it yourself…it’s worth it to have these little containers! I use them ALL THE TIME in my craft room! Or maybe you know someone who has a baby…that would work, too!
My shared card today is from my friend Linda
This beauty was embossed on glossy paper, then ink was brayered over it….such a cool technique, and I love the little gem on the sentiment! Linda has been a faithful reader and has given me ideas on how to keep Cassidy occupied, entertained and growing! Thanks, Linda!

The final creation!
Enjoy your day!
