Goodbye, bling...

And so we have saved the best for last in our trip down Memory Lane in Blingville...

There are just no words that can adequately sum that one up, are there? It's our own Melanie (a.k.a. Catwoman) with someone who resembles the Tin Man. More like the Tin Man from the 80's. Or something. He is quite silvery. And shiny. And blingy. Love it!

(And for the record, that's not Melanie's husband, either!)

It's only right that we bring you Melanie's bling project next...

On to some bling-filled cards!

Jennifer's monochromatic card features glitter embossing powder and Stickles glitter glue. I love how the Stickles give the flower some added dimension.

This card by Stacey just makes me laugh! The rhinestone crown fits perfectly on the scalloped tag and notice the unusual item in the supply list... insulating tape!

And our last bling week project is brought to you by Melissa. I love how all the patterns work together and especially the icy blue glitter accents.

You Make My Heart Melt
Designer: Melissa Phillips

Me and My Big Ideas bling hearts
Bazzill cardstock
Foof-a-la paper

All righty, kids. Let me lift my glass (of V8 Fusion... good stuff) in a toast to bling.

May we never forget the sparkle it brings to our projects.
May our use of it be inspired and abundant.
May we never spill an entire bottle of Dazzling Diamonds all of our work table.
But if we do (voice of experience), may each twinkle remind us of the power of bling.

Sherry - it was the BLING MAN! I remember he got stopped for speeding after we left. He was sooo embarrassed b/c of the get-up. But he didn't get a ticket. What cop would do that to the BLING MAN!!!! bwwaaaaaaa
