new art at last!!

Well- I'm finally on maternity leave and have the energy to post! The last few weeks have been really busy wrapping up projects at work since I'll be off till sometime in August! By the time I got home each night I was too exhausted to get on-line for very long. Today I'm in cooking mode to stock up my freezer with quick/ easy meals for after the baby comes so while I'm getting stuff together I thought I'd take a little break and schedule some posts for this week. I'll start of coarse with today's.

This was a fun card I designed for my club members. It's a bit funny really because normally when I take photos of cards with glitter- the sparkle never shows- but this photo shows the dress sooo sparkly that you can not even tell it's purple!!

The glittery dress is a new technique for me that I picked up on the CTMH consultant bulletin boards. Basically you mix Liquid Glass, prisma glitter and re-inker ( I used Amethyst which is the color purple in the striped paper)

Supplies: Key Lime and White Cardstock, Life Delights Level 2 (stripe pattern), Unforgettable Level 2 paper (pink leaf), Liquid Glass, Amethyst Re-inker, prisma glitter, Black Stamp Pad, and Bamboo, Vanilla Cream and Sunflower markers, Happy Endings Stamp Set (the flourish in the Dance layout below is also in this set!!)

The inside has a "Happy Birthday" sentiment- perfect for a little girl's birthday card!!

The second photo is actually the left side of the "Dance" layout I posted in the previous post. Just wanted to show one of the completed pages since I typically am showing layouts without photos!! I really do finish them off once I have pictures :)
Thanks for checking in today and keep checking the rest of the week- I'll be scheduling posts for each day and if you keep an eye out on the blog you'll see the FIRST EVER Close To My Heart blog hop where over 40 consultants will be previewing artwork created with BRAND NEW product from the Summer Idea Book that is released to customers May 1st!! Don't miss it!! I'll have a link to the first blog in the hop on my post that day as well as the blog that follows mine in the hop!!
