Tuesday Doubledog Dare Challenge

Hello all!
I've been gone for the last couple of weekends so my stamping time has been very limited. This week I'm prepping for a workshop with 12 ladies, four of whom are from the Women's Shelter in the town just north of us. The rest of the ladies are the wives from my DH's and my bible study group that meets at our house on Tuesday nights. The ladies will be arriving at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday here at my house, so I'm very excited to be hosting a card making session for them!! All of them are first time stampers! I didn't know there were any left out there!! LOL!!
Last weekend we attended my neice's wedding in Amarillo, Texas! That was a fun trip, great to see family, and just awestruck witnessing the little girl that we watched grow up marry a wonderfully kind and handsome Marine. They'll be stationed in San Diego until Spring. He's already been to Iraq 3 times, and he's only 23!!, I was so impressed! They were so adorable and very happy!
Anyhow, all that to's the wedding card! Their colors were red white and black (you thought I was going to say blue, huh??!!). So when our Doubledog Host for the week Charlene (aka LilLuvsStampin) asked us to make a card with bling using embossing powder and glitter, I was thinking that woman must be reading my mind!!
I used Baroke Motifs from SU, red glitter and gold embossing powder and some tiny red round half-back jewels in the center of the red star burts. Quite easy actually.
Thanks for dropping in everyone!! Sweet dreams!

Beautiful Anne! That cake is "to die for" gorgeous! I love your interpretation with the card! AWESOME Girlfriend!
How fun to be having a stanping class/workshop! I have made some very good friends that way, and yes, aren't you amazed when you meet people who have never stamped before! I'm sure after your class, they will be stampin' converts! HA! So, glad to see you back around... I was wondering where you were.
Love to you!
