Bling it on!

Yay for me...I'm out of hospital and home at last!!!! I got home last night and I don't think I've ever been so glad to sleep in my own bed! Not to mention the huge plus of NOT being woken at 6am to take pills :) Hospital pretty much sucks and ten days is about 9 days too many!!!

I'm seriously looking forward to catching up on what you've all been up to, but with over a thousand items in my Google reader it might take a while to get there! I do want to send out a huge thank you to everyone who sent get well wishes...I appreciated each and every one of them. Also a big thanks to the lovely Kay for the gorgeous get well card that was waiting for me when I got home last night...you made my day!

After settling in and catching up on my sleep, I found some time to enter the latest Magnolia Down Under Challenge. Unfortunately I missed the last one and therefore miss out on the chance to win the cool prize from Bizzy Bec's :( But I was determined to do this challenge, which was thought up by my lovely friend (Princess) Kristy....Bling it on! The name says it all really and after almost two weeks of being deprived of my craft supplies I think I went a little overboard with the bling....LOL!!!
There's three different kinds of glitter, as well as sparkly blue rhinestone brads. I wanted to use some glittery DP too, but should have found that first to match the colours I used for my Tilda :) Anyway, I've made a departure from my favoured pinks and purples this week to go with various shades of blue, green, and blue/green. The card base is Taken with Teal; the ribbon, DSP and CS under all that blue glitter is Tempting Turquoise; the flowers are from Prima; the stamps are Magnolia; and I've used about 20 different Copic markers to colour with!

For those of you who are wondering about the payback for Mad's posting of that hideously embarrassing photo....well, I'm working on something truly devastating....I can promise that she will be very, very sorry for that misdemeanor indeed!!!!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend....I know that I will now that I'm free and able to eat pizza!!!!!

Glad to have you back on line Kristie. I can relate to the long hospital times and agree that it is great to get home. The blues and greens look great. I especially love all the glitter.

ok, i'm just getting here to find out how much DRAMA I'VE MISSED!!! 10 days in hospital??!? holy moly girl--are you are OK??! geez, i am sorry to hear that. from the sound of it at least there was no operation so i am hoping all is well now!

of course, looking at this amazing card, i am tempted to think the whole thing was a clever ruse and actually you were off taking a 10-day course called, "HOW TO MAKE EVEN MORE SPECTACULARLY GORGEOUS BLINGY GREETING CARDS"! or perhaps teaching one! WOW!!! love this. LOOOOOOOVE this!!!

ps: i am in receipt of MASSIVELY cool blog candy...will post it tomorry...thank you thank you!!!

pss: take care of yourself now! XOXOXOXOXO
