Sparkle & Bling

Happy Friday, bloggers.  This will be my last post until Tuesday, because we are heading to California for the weekend to visit our daughter at college.  We miss her SO much, and haven't seen her (other than on Skype) since we took her to college in late August.  It's going to be a wonderful weekend.  I can't wait.

But first, I wanted to post this little card I made for the weekly challenge at Simon Says Stamp.  Each week, they give away one of these:

The challenge this week is to use sparkle and bling, so I did a soft toned Anniversary card and I added glitter to my Prima flower, and a Maya Road gem pin.  I hope that's "blingy and sparkly" enough.  This is the one I really want to win because their store is AMAZING.  You can check it out here:

I hope that each of you has a wonderful and blessed weekend.  I will see you all next week.  Thanks for stopping by.

Blessing to you all,
