New Challenge #185 at Glitter N Sparkle

I am now finally all caught up with my Blogs.
It really has been hard not being able to share,
but fingers crossed its all plain sailing from here on.

As for the rest of life,
well things have been good.
At Easter we had a big Family Holiday up at Kelder Forest,
where my Parents and my Partners Mum finally met for the 1st time.
We also had a lovely day out at Beamish, while we were up there.

On the College front things are going great
and I have nearly finished my 1st year (Level 2 AAT)
I've got 2 more exams both at the end of May then I'm all done.
So Job Hunting here we come,
and hopefully I will be able to afford
to do my Level 3 AAT next September.
So talk about getting scared,
I'm so nervous even just thinking about going back to work,
but I know I have to do it.

With everything that I have had to do this weekend,
I kinda cheated this week.
(as you all know I feel like its cheating
if I don't colour in the Images myself)

The Theme at
Anything Goes

Our Sole Sponsor this week is:-

Imagine That! who are offering
$10 Gift Certificate for their store.

My Project this
week is:-
Fushia and Hummingbird Digi Stamp
To begin with I used a Pre-Cut White Center Step Base Card

Next I using my Greeting Card Factory Editing Programme
I choose a Rainbow Sky Background
(Greeting Card Factory Background)
To which I overlaid the Pre-Coloured Digital Image
over the Rainbow,
Then I offset the Pre-Coloured Sentiment
(Imagine That!)
Once Printed off I used the Insert Template to Cut out the Image

From the remaining Paper I cut 2 Rectangles 

to place on the Back Steps of the Card,
One with part of the Rainbow on 
and the other just plain Sky.

I Handmade the Bow using 

1cm Silver Edged Pink Satin Ribbon.
(Boyes Haberdashery)

I then added 6mm AB Pink Pearls.
(The Range)
to various Points on the Card.

For my finishing touches I added a touch of Pink Glitter

to the Fushia Leaves and Bud.
