Twisted Thursday--Glitter or Bling

Looks like I have been gone for a few days! I have been hard at work on Christmas projects that I can't post yet because they are for friends and family that read my blog and I don't want to spoil the surprise. This is the card I made for the Twisted Thursday Challenge. The twist this week was to use glitter or bling on your card. I used glitter card stock but the glitter was not cooperating with the camera today. I started with this cat image from Shirley's 2 Girls. I think one of the reasons I love their stamps so much is that they have several cat stamps with some pretty mischievous looking cats. As the owner of three such cats, these images really make me smile. My image was colored with Copic markers, the metal clip is from Paper Studio, paper is from DCWV Pet Stack and the ribbon is just some I had on hand. 

We did something fun tonight. Our anniversary is Thursday and instead of buying each other really expensive gifts, we try to do something fun and new. Kip has been planning these activities but this year he said I could. His surprise was tickets to see the Star Wars Concert. Wow. I have seen most of the movies, and enjoyed them, but he is a big fan. It was awesome. Here is a link if you want to check out their website. The music and narration was just incredible and in the lobby they had lots of exhibits of props from the movies, costumes, backdrops and some of the handwritten music. It was very impressive. One of our friends from church was there, sitting a few rows behind us so I asked him to take a picture of us together as a memento of our anniversary celebration.  Awww, I just love him so much!
Thanks for visiting! I am almost done with Christmas so I will get back to regular posting in the next few days or so. Have a great week!
