Glitter glitter everywhere!

Oh it is nice to have a little bit of sunshine to take pictures in even it it is blowing a gale and knocking over my big potted Yucca plant.
This card hopefully is a fight back from the last missed deadline and will hopefully be in time for lots of glittery sparkly challenges, if the glitter all over the house is anything to go by.

First up challenge and the one that stated me off is over at Sassy Susies #2 challenge of pink and sparkle. I had to think who I could make this card for and decided on my niece for christmas. Pink really isn't my colour so I must admit I found this hard and was so suprised to find I did have some pink papers they must have sneeked in in sets of paper they certainly aren't hand picked. It seems odd me saying I'm not a pink girl when thats the colour I use on my blog, I do like shocking pink in small doses and do have  the odd pink top but I'm just not a girly pink girl if you know what I mean, much rather have blue.

Creative Inspirations wanted sparkle and I think this deadline may well have disappeared but never mind there are still plenty of others!

Creatalicious #4 wanted Christmas to include glitter and sparkle and some snowflakes which I have and made myself and then later found a tutorial at  KL stampin n scrappin telling me how to make them. They have a challenge to include snowflakes too so thats another one, I've lost count already I am useless sometimes.

The sketch I followed was from the challenge at Sketch saturday but I did rotate it and I have misplaced my multicoloured marry christmas peeloffs so that will be added just above the niece peel off when I find what I've done with them.

One stop craft challenge also had a snowflake theme so I think that might be a snowflake challenge foe each snowfalke now.

Kraftin Kimme #7 theme is Merry Christmas or happy winter and as I said when I find the safe place I put my peel offs in it will be a christmas card if not it will be sent as one anyway, but hopefully they will turn up.

Cute card Thursday have a theme of Teenage terrors and I think I'll take the easy option and enter this card for that as my niece is a teenager but is growing out of the terror stage. I think its the easy option as I do find teenage boys much hardedr to make cards for and I have a teenage boy myself.

Finally I think I might enter the challenge at Caardvarks as they want a coloureds tamped image and I've done that.

I'm sure if I started looking I could find a few more challenges to enter but i think that's enough for one card to burden so I'll call it a it appears the brief sunshine has done it is now really dark outside andtipping it down with rain, no doubt it will be like this for when i go to pick my son up too.
