Lovely cards with Kay Sibley

I hope you and yours had a memorable Thanksgiving filled with love and happiness!  It's wonderful to have a special day set aside to reflect on all our blessings.  I'm working hard to not take my blessings for granted but to recognize them every day!  

Here in the USA, today is called Black Friday.  It marks the official beginning of the holiday shopping season.  I bet many of you will brave the shopping malls and stores this weekend and I'm wishing you lots of bargains and good luck!  :)  After the hustling and bustling, I hope you take time for yourself to settle in and enjoy some crafting. It's very easy to forget to slow down during this hectic time of the year.  

How about some creations with the new Glitz Design goodies?  It's so easy to be inspired by these amazing products!  I made this first card by making a long "tag" and then adhered it to a card base.  This tall size is fun for a change!       

Glitz Design "Scarlett" Papers:  Bouquet, Stripe
Glitz Design "Scarlett" Paper Layers
Glitz Design "Scarlett" Peek-a-Boo accents
Glitz Design Fleur de Lis rub-on
Other:  Papertrey Ink cardstock, Zanny Zinnia crochet flower, Creative Imaginations pearl brad, own ribbon

The following card has a flower that was fussy cut from Love Nest Floral paper.  You'll see on the close up photo that I added diamond dust to enhance the outline of the flower.  It's a subtle, elegant effect. I also placed a Love Nest Peek-a-Boo accent behind the flower.  I love using them!  

Glitz Design "Love Nest" Paper:  Damask
Glitz Design "Hoopla" Papers:  Pipework, Polka
Glitz Design "Love Nest" Peek-a-Boo Accent
Other:  Papertrey Ink cardstock, button, ribbon and ink, Wendy Addison diamond dust glitter, Coats thread, Westrim Crafts twine, own pinking shears

Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend and let the shopping begin!  {wink}
