Glitter Challenge

Well, if you are a regular visitor to my blog, you know that I havent used much glitter. Not that I dont like it, just havent really been inclined to USE it, lol! But Michelle, who owns Stampers Dream Store, posted a challenge on her BLOG so I thought I would give it a go!

I used these cute House Mouse stamps that I recently picked up at Hobby Lobby on clearance. They were originally about 20 bucks and I got them for 7.19! Cant pass up a bargain like that! LOL! I think they are really cute images and actually really easy to color to me. I had lots of fun doing the glitter too. I went all around the white on the house, the roof even, lol! Here's a close up if it's not showing too good in the card picture:

I also still feel like the card needs something, and the green ribbon looks kinda lost sticking out there or something, lol! I painted the white brads to look like candy with sharpie markers, thought that looked pretty cool!

Ok, thats all for now! Working on a few other cards...hoping my mojo has come back to stay! LOL! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Thursday!

That is so darned cute! Great job on your coloring, and I LOVE the way you painted the brads to look like candy canes. And you also got to use your JustRite! :-)

Lost your mojo... yeah, right! I love your card - glitter was definitely needed for this adorable image! My kids and I LOVE House Mouse stamps - but they intimdate me a little though, to be honest.

Your coloring is amazing and that row of mints along the bottom of the candy house... well, it's just perfect!!
