Rhinestones and pearls at Fab'n'Funky Challenges

Hi all

Well here I am again - this should have been my first post today but when I looked it was still in draft - wondered where it was when I checked my blog!  I'm just using the insanity excuse that's the only one I can come up with - I'm seriously losing the plot!!  I think I'm on the countdown to my holidays at the end of the month.  So if you're a DT buddy of mine - beware I'm not responsible for my actions until the end of August lol - DT cards, they may turn up or maybe not, maybe the right day or week - maybe not!!

Anyway - here's what should have been my first post today.....

Today's challenge at Fab'n'Funky Challenges is hosted by the fabulous 


she's one of our wonderful new teamies and has chosen the theme 

Rhinestones and Pearls

It's as simple as that!!  I rarely make a card without at least one of these shiny embellies so it must be an easy one.

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Crimson Cloud

Here is my card for this week using rhinestones on a very simple thank you card
 - or as my daughter has called it
 - the Brownie card!!   

I'm sure you're as puzzled by the description as I was when she first said it - but for anyone who was a Brownie - well its obvious.  In the Brownies when they congratulate anyone they say (or always used to say - I presume it's never changed) "Well done, Well done, Well done" accompanied by a sequence of clapping, and the person replies "Thank you, Thank you, Thank you"  also with the same clapping sequence as you can see there are three "thank yous'" on my card its a Brownie card ha ha  -  see told you I was quite mad.  I'm sure there will be two very distinct groups of readers of this blog either nodding and smiling - "oh yes I remember that" or - "haven't got a clue what she's talking about - she is mad"

This is what I did...

Card punched with - Martha Stewart zig zag border punch
Ribbon - Berrisfords blue gingham
Thank you Circle stamp - Stamping all day (Thank you Nicky you provide a great service!)
Rhinestones - from my stash
Circle and scalloped circle die cuts - spellbinders

I'm sure everyone must have a card for our challenge this week - bring on those pearls and rhinestones (and brownie cards lol)

Oh this is gorgeous Judith… what a fab CAS design… love the borders with the gems and the gingham ribbon is perfect! it's really classy and elegant!
I was a Brownie for a while and don't remember those sayings!!… maybe I blocked it out cos I thought it was a bit odd… I remember thinking some of the stuff that we said/did was very strange LOL... don't think I ever quite fitted in... I remember we were forever singing Kookaburra sits on the Old Gum Tree over and over.... ROFL...
Have a lovely evening!
Big Hugs
