Sparkle & Shine at Lexi's Creations

Morning friends,  are you all well today?
Let's hope this week of Olympics will be just as good as last week.....Go Team GB....
we're so proud of you all!
So, today sees the start of a new challenge over at
Lexi's Creations and our theme this time is
"Sparkle & Shine"
We have the fantastic Joanna Sheen sponsoring us
and as you know, we are a multi crafts blog so
you can share any of your crafty makes just so long
as they fit the Sparkle & Shine theme!
As usual, the main blog is packed full of inspiration
from the fabby DT led by our own lovely Susan who is
celebrating the 1 year anniversary as owner of
Congratulations, Susan, here's to many more years!
For my card I used the gorgeous Elaina digi from
Fairy Dust Crafts, coloured with promarkers, some Papermania
paper, pink glitter card, sparkly ribbon, paper flowers 
smothered in glitter, some pearl pins and lots of 
ultra fine glitter!
Phew, that felt like a long post......thanks
for sticking with it!
Hope to see you at Lexi's!
