Rosemary here - I have missed being over here at my favorite playground - I have had a serious health issue within my family that is resolving favorably now (YAY) and so I have not set foot in my craft room to make something in seemingly FOREVER. A big thank you to Jana who kept the blog running. She's not only a wonderful friend but a creative force to be reckoned with!
Can you believe it that we've had a year of bloggy goodness and it's amazing because it has gone by in a blur! We hope you've enjoyed the challenges, I love that we've expanded our folowers and you seem to enjoy the fun and freewheeling nature of an Opus Gluei challenge! (This blog wouldn't exist or be as fun if it weren't a collaboration with a dear person like Jana)
For this challenge I decided to take on a previous challenge I missed - SPARKLE. Now, knowing me you're thinking uh oh, more girly lacey sparkling blingy stuff. Oh, you know me well (wink).
HOWEVER, I actually decided to up the ante on myself and NOT use girly/romantic items in my sparkling project. I made a birthday card with an outer space theme for my nephew who will be 9 very shortly.
I went with lots of glittery Stickles and some pop dots for my planets, the little alien dude, and the stars. I'm a child of the original Star Trek generation so I think there are swirly glittery planets and those with giant green dots (could be land masses).
Did I do okay for not being the hopeless romantic for once?
Show us what you made this week!
