Splitting the Light Fantastic!!!!......and a card to share.

Hello there :)
Well after having a totally brilliant day out at Jill's monthly crop yesterday with a super special bunch of friends, I came home to smallest daughter wanting to go for a wander up the road to see some fireworks...hhhhhmmmmmm.....there arrived our first problem! We appear to have missed them all lol. we went for a wonder through the centre of our estate and saw literally 2 tiddly little rockets go up, I think they let out a little spit and a half hearted fizz and 3 pink stars and that was it!!! We could hear lots going off in the distance though. So we hung around in the dark for a little bit, then Chloe said she wanted to go home andhave some thats what we did!
After the sparklers she decided she would put on a little light show of her own and cracked open a tube of the snap and glo sticks and activated them....and the show began!

You are impressed aren't you!....I can tell LOL ( well, it WAS far more impressive than the fireworks we had seen outside he!he!he!

Can you see the ghostly outline of her face up in the top right hand corner of the next photo?....almost spooky eh!

Then we popped back into the front room to get some more sticks aglow.......and that's when it all went wrong....
Chloe bent one of the electric bluey violet wands to activate the chemicals and make it glow......and it did inndeed glow.....and splatter....and dribble....all over her hands AND sprayed over the carpet!!!
But LOOK....its really rather pretty and looks a bit like some strange new star formation!
And I am pleased to say that tonight it appears to have cleared ok as there is nothing glowing in the lounge or on youngest daughter!!!

Here is the card that I made for our lovely Linda for her birthday , which was friday, but I saw her yesterday :) Lynn made her THE most awesome birthday cake, it was all vanilla, choc and pink marbled sponge inside, covered in white chocolate and then peppered with hundreds of hot pink smarties....and tasted delish!!!

I made the card on a 6 x 6 card blank from craftwork cards and the paper was from the Bo Bunny Peacock Lane range , I coloured the image(by Miss Anya I think
) with Promarkers and finished the card off with Stickles, organza ribbion and Prima e-line crystals and pearls, all from Cardinal Colours

Well, I am climbing up the wooden hill in a minute as I am back to work tomorrow after having nearly 2 weeks off.....jeeeez I don't feel much like getting up in the morning at 3.30....especially as there is already ice covering the car :(


  1. Love the colour combo for the card - gorgeous. Glo sticks look fun - glad your carpet is no longer glowing.

    Hope tomorrow isn't too much of a struggle to get up.
