All that Glitters...

...is well, usually FABULOUS!

Today is Whimsical Wednesday and another FUN FUN challenge at The Diedrich Dare!   This week, we are finishing up our "Mix it up May" series!  It's been SO much fun having some of our Daredevils' kids as Guest Challengers this month!

The month ends this week with two little guest challengers that mean the world to me-my "Cousin/BFF" Kim's two daughters, Kaeli and Emilie!  Technically they're my 2nd cousins, but they're the same age as my kids so I usually refer to them as my nieces!  They came to visit me a few months ago and we had the BEST time stamping.  The girls LOVE stamping and hanging out w/ me and their mom.  SO cute!

Well, today's challenge is a FABULOUS one indeed!  Along with using stamps from our WONDERFUL sponsor this month (and sooo generous!) Sweet Pea Stamps, the girls want you to "MAKE IT SPARKLE!"   Just use glitter, stickles, glitter pens, make it shimmer and shine!

I used Stickles on my card today on this beautiful stamp: Ching-Chou Kuik's "Fly Butterfly".  This stamp was a gift from my awesome friend, Jen Shults.  In fact, this card is full of RAK's.   That pretty doily is ANOTHER gift ALL THE WAY from AUSTRALIA from my sweet friend Kristy Young.  She sent them all the way from AU w a gorgeous card and some super cute crocheted flowers.  Thanks Kristy!  Kristy has a brand new store opening up, Delicious Papercrafting.  Make sure to check out her blog for all the details!

Be sure to check out The Diedrich Dare blog today where Kim has more info on today's challenge and be sure to check out the rest of the Daredevils:


That's it for me today, but I'll be back tomorrow with some SERIOUS Unity SWEETNESS!  LOTS of surprises, actually!

And next week, OH MY.   Be SURE to tune into The Dare NEXT WEEK as we make a BIG announcement and show details on how YOU could win the BIGGEST PRIZE EVER in Dare history.  Hint:  there are LOTS of companies pitching in for this awesome CHALLENGE!  Don't miss it!

Live, love, laugh, smile, and FLY...
Jessica ;)  xoxo
