Oh, did someone say glitter?? Now , when someone says this or suggests this, I, being the magpie that I am, must comply and in a big way. I briefly thought about making the little snowman in yellow and then I wisely went against that thought. One would think, Billy Bubba and his beer drinking team made that snowman. I have tons of scrap paper so this is one way of using them up by making stripes on my own. I had polka dot paper which I used in the upper right corner and had to embellish the dots with stickles. I dove right into the glitter and just glammed up the snowy town scene. I was overjoyed that I did not sneeze which I did do once and the glitter went everywhere. Happy July everyone!

  2. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, dear Brrr-git! :) I love the blue, gray and magenta hues used in the card and, as usual, the artwork is fantastic. Nicely done, dear friend!

  3. So pretty!!! That would be a nightmare with a glitter sneeze :) I guess it must be a hard thing to clean up; was checking out some wedding venues and several said "no glitter." Not that I'm enamored to it. Its probably like corgi fur, a gift that keeps on giving as you have to vacuum it up.

  8. Lovely card, presented with humour. I forgive you for mentioning Christmas AGAIN! The Billy Bubba comment reminded me of a Frank Zappa song which has a line something like "don't eat the yellow snow - that's where the huskies go." (Not a Zappa fan, one of the things I put up with for the sake of marital harmony.)

  10. Oooo . . . . that little scene in the star is beautiful. I love all the sparkle! And what a great way to use up some scraps that are "just lying around doing nothing". I have soooo many of those. Definitely got a giggle out of the glitter sneeze. Thanks for playing with The House that Stamps Built.

  12. This one is a winner, Birgit. In my book it is. Right at the top of all your other cards. I like how your star of a snow scene pops above those stripes.
