All that Glitters

As expected this week has been super busy, but after a trade show, that's what you want.  It has meant that my crafting time has been extremely limited.  The Make It Monday challenge over at Papertrey Ink this week was glittering buttons.  So as I was so short of time I wondered if Spray & Sparkle Iridescent Glitter Spray would work and it did like a dream.  No real mess either, perfect!  So with all those glittery buttons about I made a set of 6 cute cards.  I was also inspired by challenges at:
Allsorts Blog Challenge - It's your choice
Cute Card Thursday - winged things

How cute are those glittery buttons?

Supplies used:
Card - spring moss, melon berry, stampers select white, dark chocolate, aqua mist by PTI
Stamps - everyday button bits, round and round, masculine motifs, up, up and away by PTI
Inks - spring moss, melon berry, berry sorbet, lemon tart, dark chocolate by PTI
Glitter - spray and sparkle iridescent by Crafter's companion
Dies - Mat stack 4, layerz 4
Buttons - PTI

Having worked 13 days without a day off I decided it was time for an evening of dancing last night.  I had the most wonderful time at Easington Welfare - they have the most gorgeous dance floor.  I had loads of great dances and it's so nice to stay out late but then have no hangover on a Sunday, just sore ankles!!
I gave my beautiful new red shoes their first run out last night and not only do they look gorgeous they feel fabulous too.
So if a girl is going out in a black dress and beautiful shoes surely she needs a pretty flower to match.  Seeing as I didn't have one I managed to rustle one up quick smart.  It's even sewn together, so for that reason I'm entering it into the challenge at A Passion for Papertrey - needle & thread

So I guess that was the weekend.  As I worked Saturday I've still managed to fit a lot in but could still do with some extra hours in the day.
Let's see what this week brings.
Love ya

Hi Claire, as usual your post has left me exhausted, lol!

Your cards are fantastic!! I love the little bird and balloon ones - so clever. The buttons look gorgeous - I'll have to remember this idea.
