Chandelier Revisited

Hey there!! Hope everyone had a good Wednesday. It was ugly rainy weather afterwork yesterday. I feel sorry for the kiddos 'cause they've only got a few days left of summer, but secretly I was smiling 'cause it's perfect stamping weather!!. I decided to work on the other swap I'm behind in - "Happy Birthday". I originally was planning on using this card. But I didn't think it was fun enough for a girlfriend so I decided to revisit the whole idea. This is what I came up with:



I like this one better because it's a little more lighthearted - what girlfriend wouldn't like a chandelier full of martini's !! Too cute and fun! The inside reads "Hang in there!" This isn't a very good photograph, but I colored in the bead/baubbles on the chandelier with my Sakkura Stardust glitter pen to given them some shimmery sparkle. And, I even added a couple of small rhinestones in the button holes. What do you think?


Today looks like more of the same weather ;0) I've really got to work on organizing my craft space. It's getting REALLY out of hand and like a bad plague, rapidly infecting the rest of the house. Maybe I'll take some pictures so you can see . . .


Have a GREAT DAY - whatever the weather!

  1. This is gorgeous! I love your chandelier and the ribbon is fab! I just read your comment on my post for the day. I actually ordered those stamps from Addicted to Rubber Stamps. I started to put this in my post but since my husband reads my blog occasionally... I thought I wouldn't. A local scrapbook store had them in stock but I didn't get them right away. When I went back to get them.. they were gone so I had to find them online. Locally they were $1... online I paid like 2.50 or so but with shipping.. I ended up spending like $11. I will know next time to just go ahead and spend the extra $1 and maybe it will save me money in the long run! :)

  6. Mine looks like a paper explosion! My boyfriend once asked me if my bookshelf fell down (jokingly - mostly). Love the tini chandelier.
