You're A Star-Challenge #59@TSC

Hello friends! Today I'm sharing a card I made for a challenge at Tammy's Scrapin' Corner
This weeks challenge is #59 Anything goes/Bling it up
Our sponsor this week is Stamp Fairy
I've used the digi called Mimi Stars 4
I'm looking forward to seeing what you create for this challenge.
 It's a bling thing so add as much or as little as you like. When it comes to "shiny" more is always better! I had to stop myself from adding more bling to this card because I can get so carried away with sparkly things.  Glitter never photographs well but it is so shiny and sparkly in real life! I used purple and teal sticky glitter paper,and gold foil papers that I had been hoarding for at least 12 years. The glitter papers have a very glossy coating on the front and the  back peel away paper has Kodak written on it. All the things I've collected for scrapbooking over the years are finally getting used. Before making cards as much as I do now, I used to buy loads of scrapbooking paraphernalia scrapbook. Now every time I use something from my stash I smile and think, Ha! I knew I bought that for a reason!

I got to babysit Morgan, and Tanner, two of my grandkids again this weekend. I enjoyed having them so much that when they left Sunday night I felt all weepy. They only live an hour away and we get to see them quite often. We looked after them for two weeks, just three weeks ago, and they'll be here again next Saturday, but just for a quick visit. I guess it just kind of hit me how precious this time with them is. I try to be present with them every minute and create fun filled memories. This weekend we created more Art,and I introduced them to the poetry of one of my favorite authors, Shel Silverstein. We read from the book Where the sidewalk ends.They loved it and so did I! Especially Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle me too...Spending so much time together has really bonded us and every visit is so precious to me.
I am so thankful to be so blessed!

Hope you have an amazing week...thanks for the visit!

I also wanted to share the present the kids gave me this weekend. This beautiful engraved pedant and chain that I will always cherish.
My daughter, Nerissa inked up and stamped Morgan and Tanner's hands and emailed them to a jeweler who added them to this pendant. "I love you to the moon and back" is something we tell each other all the time.
Here are their little hand prints preserved forever...It's no wonder I was so weepy right?!

Debora...first of all, let me say that I absolutely LOVE your etched pendant that your daughter had done for you! That is so so sweet. Your "You're a Star" card is adorable. I love your little girl. You've colorized her to perfection to coordinate with the glitzy blue purple papers you've used. The start die cuts are adorable. Your design is perfect! I also love the interior of your card...beautifully done! Finally, I would like to thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment. Have a wonderful week! <3 Candy
