This week's challenge is right down my alley.  I love bling!
I thought I would do a night of navy with beautiful Rudolf to light the way!  I thought I would not be able to post this as I had a lot of problems with transferring photos to my PC.  Whew, I finally got it fixed in time to post. 


Here it is in all its shimmering glory.  Also a closer look.


And the inside view, very plain, but will be adding a sentiment.


Ingredients:
Cardstock:  Night of Navy
Paper:  Silver Foil paper , Dazzling Diamond Glimmer paper
Miscellaneous Tools:  Tattered Lace - Reindeer, Memory Box - Orchard Tree Form, Stampin Up Framelits Die - Star
Red Rhinestone

Very fast easy card to make.  I might use this one for "Cookie Cutter cards.

Well, have a great week and hope to see you next time.  Happy card making!  Heather :)

MY BIRTHDAY CARDS

The week of May 28th was my birthday week.  It all started on May 25 with a luncheon with a group I belong to "Crown Jewels of Canada" and then in the evening getting together with my "Monday Night" ladies (Betty Lee, Phyllis and Laurel) at the Blue Heron Pub in Vernon.  My Monday night ladies and I get together to make cards or try new techniques on Monday's.  One lady could not make it as she was under weather.  We missed you Jan!   Our supper was awesome and we were able to eat outside by the water.  The next night (May 26) was getting together with my friend, Linda, at the Edible Canvas for another delicious meal.  Bob (her husband), could not make it. On Thursday, my actual birthday, I met some other ladies (Iris and Margaret), for a free lunch at Kelly O'Bryan's.  They give you a free lunch or dinner on your birthday.  I try not to miss this every year.  Not often you get a FREE lunch!!!!  That night was special, because my husband took me out for supper at the Blue Heron again.  This is one of my favorite places.  It was raining so could not sit on the patio.  We were joined by some other good friends, Sonyia, Ed, and Kay and another excellent meal.  On the 29th I went out again with some other friends, Margaret, Bud, Iris, my husband, Jim, and Kathy.  They have been friends since I first moved to Vernon 14 years ago.  We had supper at Wings and Margaret made a "special carrot cake" for me and for Bud (his birthday was on the 27th).  We each took home our leftover cake to enjoy another day.  What a week!!!!   Alas, on Saturday, I had to cook dinner myself :(   Anyway, I was thoroughly spoiled.  I took pictures of my cards....all 20 of them.  I thought I would show some Special ones and the whole group.  

 
As you can see...I am truly blessed with good friends and family.
