Caardvarks and the weekend!

Have you ever been to the Examiner? Maggie from the Cuttlebug Challenge blog pointed this out to us...how cool is this??? click here ...that's my layout! ;) OH and make sure you check out Sarah Hodgkinson's blog here. She is doing a give-a-way with some CORE! AND her blog is loaded full off inspiration. Gorgeous work, I always drool over her stuff. AND Heather Bowser is doing a give-a-way, too! Those Core girls are soooo generous! Wait til you see that cute layout she has posted.

So I have been working on some fun things this week while it has been snowing. I feel like I should have been more productive but that snow can make you lazy, LOL! I did hit up the elliptical everyday this week which has me psyched.

Here is my card for the Caardvarks Get Published challenge. I used the same concept that I did here with my Websters Pages/Tattered Angels post. I used Bazzill tulle by the foot and made a knot and then kept the knot loose and pulled another, shorter piece through it to make it look like the poofy train of a gown. I raised the images and added a myStampBOX sentiment stamp. I also used my paint brush and some Glimmer Mist to accent the shadows of the dress form {the dress form is a hybrid Webster's image using their new digi images here}. I opened the bottle of the mist and you know where the glimmer settles? {you have to lay it on its side}...well, I just dipped my brush in all that yummy glimmer --you can't shake it! --and then painted it on the card where I wanted to accent the dress form.




Here is an extra close-up {if that is even a word, LOL!} so you can check out where I brushed the Marshmallow Glimmer Mist.
