I would just like to say welcome and thank you to all of my new followers! I have been so overwhelmed by the lovely comments and support for my work!

I have had a few people ask if my cards fit in envelopes.  lol And the answer is sometimes not but I don't like being restricted by an envelope. I like to create to my heart's desire and not give myself boundaries. As many of you now know I love to embellish, embellish, embellish! You would not believe the state of my craft room, as I don't like to get rid of anything in case it may be needed lol.

I am a mad crafter and love to create jewellery, Teddy bears, Dolls, I have mosaic supplies, Floral supplies, Mountains of Magazines anyway you get the picture! he he

Oneday I might show you a picture but I may have to tidy up a bit first!


A new challenge has started today at Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge Blog

Anything Goes with Lots of Bling

Here is my Design Team Card

Bling, Bling, Blingity, Bling!  lol!
Here is Princess Jasmine standing outside her palace! I love this Digital Stamp by Sherri Baldy, she is so pretty! You can find her HERE

I have coloured her with my Promarkers and blinged her up!
She even has magical bling coming from her lamp! OK maybe I went overboard with the bling, but it is a bling challenge and it was fun!

I used the cute window die by Joy crafts, and the cottage crafts cherry blossom die below!
Lots of my favourite flowers by Wild orchid crafts, and those tiny flowers are ceramic from ebay!

I made up a cute bottle of magic sprinkles, and a charm, and bead dangle, for a bit more bling!

And this is a peacock brooch that I bought off ebay for $1. I thought it might be good for a card one day he he! I put a pink tulle bow behind it.

Below is a side on view.

This card was so much fun to make!
Hope you like it too!
Have a fantastic week!
I will be back tomorrow with an announcement of some exciting news!
Yours in bling bliss Julie xox
I am also entering this card in the following Challenge:

Oh Julie,reading your story around the creation of this spectacular card you really sound as though you were 'in your element' and had great fun. You have treated Princess Jasmine royally so it's no wonder she looks so happy. I always think that the only time a crft room need a tidy up is when you spend too much time looking for that perfect treasure for work in progress :-) Oh, and your card is absolutely amazing. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
