Hi everyone, so sorry that I haven't been about for a few days. Gosh, looking at the date of my last post it's been nearly a week, doesn't time fly when you're having fun?
I haven't been having too much fun really, I decided to 'sort out' my craft room...BIG MISTAKE, HUGE MISTAKE!!!!! I think there were a few times when DH was about to send out search parties for me lol!
Now "why would you do something as reckless as this?" I hear you ask, and quite rightly too! The honest reason is that I'd ordered so many new 'goodies' that I didn't know where I was going to put them (I truly believe that I enjoy shopping for craft items even more than I enjoy crafting!!!)
The outcome is, I've never been so organised (of course I may never be able to find anything again!) You know what it's like, you discover crafting and want everything, then gradually you find what styles you like and all the other stuff gathers dust. So I've sorted out lots of bits that I'm getting rid of as I know I'll never use them again.
Anyway, enough waffle from me, onto the card. I've made it just because I wanted to, and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.
I need to give copious amounts of thanks to Jak for the freebies that I've used on this, they all came from her wonderful blog Crafters Kitchen and if you have never visited you don't know what you're missing! She is not only a very talented crafter but generously offers lots of freebies and tutorials on her blog too.

* Papers - Jak Heath 'Brocade' freebie
* Sentiment - Woodware 'Circular Greetings'
* Mats - Nestabilities 'Classic and scalloped circles'
* Everything else from my stash
The miri card is actually silver, so why it's looking quite goldy in the photo I don't know and the crystal brads are much more sparkly in real life too! I think I may have to have words with my personal photographer as this is not quite up to his usual standards lol!
As I've got lots of sparkle on this I'm entering it into La-La's challenge which is for 'Sparkle'.
