Glitter overload??


Good afternoon Crafty Peeps!
Firstly, I would like to say Hi & welcome to my new followers…thank you for joining me on my crafty journey! And, also thank you all for your lovely comments left – they are wonderful to read & surely boost my crafty self!

Not a bad day here in my neck of the woods – considering what the rest of the Country is dealing with weather wise.  We’ve had lots of rain, and a little flooding here & there but to be honest, I’ve not ventured out much lately so it could be much worse than I know.  From where I can see out my window the day looks beautiful hehe!

On to my little makes of today. …but before I show you what I’ve made, I just want to add this;  I think everyone is trying to be frugal with their pennies & to be honest, this time of year, leading up to Christmas, is a time for many to be pulling their hair out whilst looking at the family Christmas list…everything is sooo expensive & where have the days gone where a pressie wasn’t expected but a joy to receive what ever it was…*sigh*.  Well, this year we are  poor so everyone will be getting what I choose to make for them LOL!!!
Here’s my make:

Now, I was super excited putting everything together to make this door hanger…and I think the excitement got the better of me and I ‘over cooked’ it a bit :/ It is for my 5 year old Niece, & she is uber - girlie-girlie with a - glittered - cherry - on - the - top,-little-Princess , So I really hope she sees pass her Auntie’s glitter  obsession enthusiasm!

**Ingredients** 
Sugar Buttons card stock: - 
Bubblegum Candy Strip 900936
Hearts cut out from: Fairy Friend Sparkly paper craft toppers 900927
Flowers from crafty stash
Diamond Stickles 
Border trims (sorry can't remember offhand whose die it is)
Spellbinders D-lites die cut Fantastic flourish two
Spectrum Noir  PL3 pen from the Purples.

So, that's about it. - I'm off now to give my Son  a hair cut...short notice request (as usual) but he has an important date tomorrow...so I really could not let him be seen with his hair as it is!  After that, back on to Door Hanger number two ( let's see if I learn to tone it down this time lol)
Whatever you are doing, where ever you are doing it, I hope its a good day for you!
Until next time,

Mandy :)
