Sparkle Sparkle!

Hello!  So, my sleep patterns are just horrible.  I'm blaming the flu more than my own willingness, or lack there of, to go to bed! ;)  But I was ridiculously excited when I saw that my package from Inspired By Stamping had finally arrived all the way from Australia and I just HAD to play with my new toys!!!

Here's what I made~

Details~




For these fabulous challenges~


(The stamp and the glitter washi tape are NEW!)

(This card only took me 7 minutes and 39 seconds to craft!)

So, what do you think of that AMAZING glitter washi tape?!  Isn't it the most amazingly sparkly thing EVER?!  Okay, so that was from IBS as is the beautiful sentiment--all about new promise and new peace for the New Year--the rest of the supplies are by Stampin' Up!.

This card is destined for some friends that had an extremely rough December.  It is a very sensitive and personal topic, so I won't go into details, but after my DH and I went to visit them the other day, I realized that I had yet to send them a card.  I hope that this one will bring them some comfort and help them know that they are loved.

So, what will YOU create for these amazing challenges?!  I hope you play along!  ALSO--TOMORROW is the first ever Inkspirational challenge!!!  PLEASE come join us!  ALSO--a BRAND NEW Technique Tuesday challenge went live this morning PLUS we've got a Crew Call on!!!  Stay tuned for more crafty news and projects from yours truly!  Thank you for all of your amazingly lovely and thoughtful comments and, as always, HAPPY {new year} STAMPING!!! :)
