A year of -isms III

"Just now, I asked The Mister if there was any holidays or special occasions coming up where people have to buy me stuff. He said our anniversary and I "Psssssh-ed" it because that's in September. He said the only thing coming up is Mother's Day and is it kind of bad that I half-wished I was pregnant so I could demand him to buy me a cart? I would choose New Arrivals of course..."

Hel-looo! Only one more week until my blogaversary! I'm very excited about it...too excited probably by the looks of how the giveaway is growing. I've been gathering here and there - some more K&Co. stuff which I am loving and also a couple hand-made kind of things from yours truly! Like this:



GLITTER!


I'm all googly-eyed! Okay, so I didn't actually MAKE the glitter - I have no idea how that magic happens, but I did make them into all these prettiful colours! I took my jar of plain ol' white glitter and dyed them a bunch of colours and put them in jars just like that! So in with my giveaways, this set of sugary glitter just for my blogaversary winner!

I hope everyone had a good weekend - we got a lot more snow *makes face* and I'm all bitter now at the cruelness of Mother Nature and how she teases us with nice, warm, spring-like weather only to snatch it back give us more snow instead! BAH! But I did have a little bit of playtime in my scraproom and I got to play with more Flower Soft and to colour my very first Lockhart stamp!




Another plain and simple card so as not to take away from the main focal point of my image! Even though I've been all COPIC-crazed right now, I coloured in my image with my watercolor pencils and trimmed the stamped image out (*waves* Thanks fairy craftmother!). I used my oh-so-pretty Flower Soft for the hydrangea's and a generous sprinkling of fine glitter - yes, I am ALL ABOUT the glitter lately! I used my little bottle of Glossy Accents and randomly dabbed at the berries before sprinkling with the glitter!

Next I used my BRAND SPANKIN' NEW Oval Nestabilities (*waves* Thanks, Terri!) and used that as my focal image mat. For the rest of the card I just used my Scor-Pal to add detail and some yummily lumpy SugarPops!

Thanks for stopping by! I'll still be adding a little bit more to my blogaversary giveaway so don't forget to stop by on March 1st to play!

I laughed reading the opening of your entry. I kind feel the same way on wishing there was a reason to be bought stuff...but for me the pregnancy thing my come true by Mother's Day. *fingers crossed* I'm in love with that Flower Soft stuff, too, on your card.
