Glittery goodness!

Happy November!!!!  Good grief, I can't believe I'm saying that, can you?  We're still having really nice weather here right now and I'm so grateful for that.  Especially after all the people that got snow dumped on them over the weekend.  The only down side to the nice weather is that it's not very conducive to crafting :) 

A few weeks ago I saw Dawn McVey make THESE flowers and I thought they were really pretty.  Well, you know I'm a frugal kind of a gal and rather than spend $15 on a stamp set and another $8 on a set of dies (which isn't bad by any means) I got to thinking about the dies I already had on hand.  Within 10 minutes I made these:

I used my Tim Holtz flower die and traced around the edge with a glue pen, shook on some Martha Stewart glitter and attached all the layers with a brad.  To cover up the brad, I stuck on a glue dot and added a pearl or rhinestone.  I really love the pink one, I wish the glitter was showing up better in the picture :) 

I'm outta here for today.  Hope you have a fantastic Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back tomorrow with another fun embellishment I whipped up!


  1. this is just so pretty! I love it!

    I know what you mean-after beggers night last night I took in a big sigh and said now things get crazy for the rest of the year! time is going so fast!

  2. Those look absolutely stunning!!!

  3. These are so pretty! Love how you embellished teh brad.

  4. Love, love, love the christmasy pointsetta esk flower!

  7. Awesome flowers! I might need that die *wink wink* Hope that you had a fab Halloween! Thanks for sharing! -Amanda

  8. These are gorgeous. Love the pink one as well.
    Your glitter is showing up just fine :)
    Not happy that this year is moving way to fast;(

  9. Oh wow. These are so cool! Love them. And I'm with you - thank goodness for the nice weather, the snow can WAIT! Poor people on the east coast....

    And I don't want you to think I'm sitting here with a real offer on my house. It was a fake offer. They used me to get another seller they were working with to reduce the price on the house they really wanted. It worked - the other seller got scared that they put in an offer on my house so they reduced their price. The buyers rejected my counter offer and now have a contract on the other house at the price they wanted. Sigh. (I hope that makes sense.)

    I'll get over it. Tomorrow is a new day! :)

  10. These are so cool! I can't believe it snowed on the east coast last night. I'm loving our nice weather, but I was a little upset since everyone I knew back home was snowed on but me!

    I can't believe it is November already! Craziness!
