Thanks so much!

Good morning all.

House work - tick, washing - tick, shopping - tick...looks like today I get to choosing! Until eldest gets home from Bulgaria then I'm sure there'll be a bagful of dirty washing with him. Then again darling daughter has holes in her school shoes...we may have to go shopping!

A change from Christmas to share today but still CAS.

I've used Flitterglu through an old brass stencil then covered with IndigoBlu Lancashire Rose mega flakes. Topper is then layered onto some multi coloured mirri card and mounted onto a black card blank. Sentiment from Imagination Crafts has been stamped with versamark and heat embossed with some sparkly EP.

I've got three tubs of these mega flakes and I'm quite sure they'll be the death of me...they go everywhere but where you want them to, I'm sure I don't know whose idea it was to buy them!!
