Daughters,You've Got To Love Em!

"Mum,can you make me a card? " came the plea at 1 o'clock this afternoon,"I'm not going out till 3!" So not needing an excuse to craft I set about making this card,I even liberated some of the Basic Grey chip board numbers that I usually only use as templates,didn't have time to let glaze dry so instead spread them with a thin layer of stickles once I had covered them.

I've taken a couple of photo's so hopefully it shows how lovely and sparkly they turned out. I also added some of the lovely papermania self adhesive flat back gems,there wasn't enough of one colour or size to make each scallop the same but they do say variety is the spice of life.They are so lovely that I just can't resist them.I decided to make the centre in a tag style,raising it on foam tape and adding some ribbon.

I was even able to fulfill the requirements of a couple of challenges with it.
The Crafty Pad challenge 84,Glitz and Glitter,
Die Cut Dreams Challenge 61,Use a tag,No stamping,
I even managed to make another card for her to give her friend from us in time.
My daughter ended up not going out till 4pm. and guess what,she left the cards on the worktop
even though I reminded her as she put her boots on,I should have known better and placed them in her hand lol!
Thanks for stopping by,

How sweet that you daughter requested a card. She must appreciate your talents. My daughter automatically gets any cards I make that have cupcakes. She requested a cupcake series. She has a 'thing' for cupcakes. I love that she likes the cards enough to request them.
