|My younger granddaughter turns 11 this week!|
Such as special occasion calls for special paper.
I used Graphic 45's "Time to Celebrate" paper line.
I added a lot of glitter to the birthday girl's party dress
and the candles on the cake!
|It worked out just right to have these two candles on the card interior|
to stand for "11" years old!
|I made this card to go with the tag pictured below.|
It was really fun to do all the fussy cutting and add layers
of glitter glue and watch the card come to life!
|This tag as made as part of a swap in Craft That Divas, a Facebook group.|
The theme was Cirque de la Diva.
I love how it turned out!
I used Graphic 45's Le Cirque paper line that I had hoarded for about 3 years!
The glitter glue really makes the highwire aerialist' s dress
and elephants' jackets sparkle!
|This card was made to go with the tag below.|
More glitter glue!
|I have had this paper for a few years.|
I am so glad I was given a special reason to use it!
It is "Fun House" by Tina Higgins.
I fussy cut and glitter glued the components and
used some of my hand-dyed seam binding.
|While I was in the hospital this week,|
my husband spotted this authentic Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus train
winding it's way through Batavia.
I think the circus is this weekend in Rochester!
I was so excited when he showed me these photos.
|These cars have windows.|
I wish I could see inside!
|And finally, one of those fancy circus wagons just like on the card I made!|
It is on the far left in this photo.
My hubby surprised me with tickets to this circus two years ago when it came to Rochester.
I was very excited and loved every minute of it.
I felt like a little kid. He loves doing things like that for me that make me feel special.
