Cool & Sparkly, How I like my beverages.....

So I'm recovering from what appears to be a bout of food poisoning...which I believe is Karma's way of getting back at me for not being sympathetic enough to Rob's food poisoning a few weeks ago. Without getting TOO into detail, let me just say....ew. It was not a great way to spend an afternoon where the humidex was in the 40s Celsius.

Prior to my utterly unpleasant experience, I managed to get a whole bunch of cards made up - and since we're off for a visit to Grammie's I'm just going to post them all in a row. Grab a cuppa :)

This first one is for Crafty Creations Challenge - Sparkle!, and for the CASology prompt: COOL. (Which made me think of the Outkast song 'Hey Ya' - what's cooler than cool? ICE COLD!)


Supplies: silver shimmer card stock; Versamark; Moonstone (silver) embossing powder, Stampendous; Snowflakes stamp from PTI; Sentiment stamp from Stampendous; silver tinsel thread; bells


Four colours of silver on the same card? And yet it works :) The tinsel thread is some I picked up in a package at the dollar store, and let me just say....I will not be trying to sew with it any time soon. Not the best quality stuff, but it is pretty, and SPARKLY :) And of course, snow is cool. How I miss winter :)

xoxo,
Jessi

Dang, Jessi, I'm so sorry to hear about the food poisoning. That stuff is nasty. I hope you have a mild case of it. In happier news, congratulations for the well-deserved HM from CASology!!
