Happy Thursday to you! I have to admit that after spending the day at Great America yesterday with two boys, I am a wee bit tired today! I had intentions of coming home and crafting a bit last night.....and let me tell ya.....that did not happen! The minute my head hit the pillow I was out like a light!

I have a Crafty Secret's card to share with you that uses more of that German Glass Glitter! I am smitten with the stuff! I used an image from the Little Blessings Creative Scraps. I embossed the background with a Cuttlebug folder and added the glitter with a Sakura glue pen. The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub on.

I used bits and pieces to create a little collage in the lower corner. The flower was created by me using the Mother's Day Bouquet Cartridge, and inserting some stamens from other silk flowers I had on hand. The nest was bought off Etsy, and I have a bag of feathers in my stash that were begging to be used here!
Kyle has his second golf lesson today. Tryouts for the golf team are next week, and he hasn't decided if he is going to take the plunge and try out. He is afraid he isn't good enough and he is worried about the other kids teasing him. He has had some bad experiences with that in the past. I'm not going to push him, there is always next year if he decides to wait another year.

Have a wonderful day! And thank you sooooo much for stopping by today!!!!

This is a beautiful card! That German glass really does make a difference - do you have to protect your hands with gloves when working with it? I'm asking because on one site where they sell it they were offering rubber gloves to use when working with it, just wondering if that is a must?
If the golf team has a good coach,tell your son to go for it- he'll be surprised at how much he can learn by picking up the best tricks of the trade from everyone, and the coach should be able to help him out with the interaction.He can always stop going if it doesn't work out and the kids are jerks!
Once again thank you for all your beautiful designs!!!! Kim

Such a beautiful card! I love all the detailing. And I love how you put things together that aren't from the same company, yet it looks like a kit! Love it!
