Children and glitter just go together...

... for cards not for real unless you want abig mess.
I digress my card is for my mum to send to my nephew who is 3 and a rouge who has his mum wrapped around his little finger. He is the only little boy I know who can slap his younger sister and get a cuddle for it, I dread what he will turn out like but each of us has different methods for bringing up our children don't we and it wouldn't do for us all to be the same but my step sister in law does make me feel so cross inside but I don't want to get into arguements as there is far more to life. I'm sure when his sister gets bigger she'll turn round on him and get her own back, maybe I'll get her some karate lessons when she's older.

Oops there I go again. My card I am entering into a few challenges,well it fits the criteria so why not.
Firstly the sketch is from Midnight madness #28  who have the sketch and theme of Christmas,but as its for the little terror I didn't think it safe to add a button or charm for safety reasons so instead I used paper that has dangly baubles on with added glitter. Safety first.

The next challenge is over at Forever Friends who wanted 'glitter'. I think I qualify for that as there's glitter dots on my parcel and on my baubles. Hopefully and I can't see why Conor will like the teddy.

Allsorts also have a challenge#27 wanting a card for a child as do a spoonful of sugar who want a card for babies first christmas or a pre schooler so my card fits both those challenges too.

The Craft garden have a theme of sparkle so as I have plenty of that I think I can enter that too.
Well without more waffle here is my card. Thanks for taking the time to visit and happy crafting.

Hello Julyeb - I laughed when I read your post - I guess we all know people like that - 'skeery' to think what we are teaching these little ones!! LOL! Your card is perfect for a little boy and a great take on this weeks sketch! Well done with all of the challenges! Thank you for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week. We look forward to seeing you again next week!

A BIG Welcome to Midnight Madness, Julyeb!
What a cute image you used :) And yes, safety first with all the little ones, the paper charm is better. I'm sure your grandson will enjoy this cute card with sparkley green colors in the back. And it's always great to enter it in more than 1 sketch - very well done! Thanks for joining us this week and hope to see you at the next one, xox~Jeni & MMSC Design Team

Ah, the joys and pitfalls of raising children. Somehow, we do seem to get through it.lol.

I know my own daughter (the only one of four...three brothers) can hold her own and even put the fear of God into most of them. Don't worry, she'll have her day.

This card is so sweet. I love the shiny gift and pretty dp. Great take on the sketch. Thanks for playing with us at the MMSC this week. Hope you will play again.
