Sparkling Snowflakes!

I LOVE GLITTER!  I love all things that sparkle!  I love shiny things!  I can't even begin to start to share with you how much I love this card!!!!  This card was inspired (ok copied) from Mary Fish, she's fabulous by way!!!!  This new champagne glitter paper will be in the Holiday Catalog and I HAD to have it when I saw it the catalog.  I have packages of the red and silver but tend not to use them-they're so pretty just to look at!  But after I saw Mary's card I thought-ok I'm going to do it, I'm going to use my glitter paper!  Don't you just love it!!!!!??!  It's hard to tell in the picture but in real life you'll find yourself just staring at the sparkly wonderfulness that is the glitter paper!
Plus the snowflake is put together with dimensionals which makes it even more fun!  The layers and lift!  Yay for glitter and dimensionals!!!!  I'm pretty sure that the SU workers that pack the boxes so perfectly must think I'm crazy.  I order dimensionals with almost every order and I order TONS of them!!!  SU should sell them in bulk!  I have a whole drawer full of dimensionals.  I go through them regularly and I don't ever want to run out :)  Some people stock pile food, or other life saving things to use in an emergency I stock pile dimensionals!  :)  I can't wait to see the rest of the swaps from our meeting tonight and I'll make sure to share them with you next week!   
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!!

Okay ... so I know I'm not supposed to check your blog on Thursday mornings, but sometimes I'm not too sharp at 6:00 in the morning.

You know I LOVE Mary Fish .... and I loved her before I loved you .... but I have to say ... I love YOUR version of this card much more than hers! I love that you added silver glimmer paper too. I am just more drawn to your color combination. I LOVE it! I have this die ... I need to break it out and put it to use!

See you tonight!
