Mo's Dream Team Blog Hop - Glitter


How excited am I - this is my first month as a permanent member of Mo's Dream Team - and before I go on to talk about my card I just want to thank the girls for making me feel soo welcome!

Just in case you get lost along the way the hop order is ....


This month we have the lovely Shell hosting the hop and she has challenged us to use GLITTER - not much of a challenge for many of us - just a challenge to get across in a photo! If you're following the hop you should have arrived here from the Sparkling Cheryl's Blog.

When I realised the challenge was Glitter the first thing I thought of was Mo's gorgeous fairys! But because  I used 2 of Mo's fairy's in last month's hop I decided to challenge myself with a different theme. While I was out walking the other day I saw an elderly couple walking hand in hand - they reminded me of Mo's Jack and Ginger! It reminded me that love shines for ALL ages and the idea formed for my card!

I used Mo's Bride and Groom image like an old photograph on the wall to remind us that these gorgeous ol' folks were once young - and though time had stooped their backs - their love still "Glitters" around them! There are dazzling diamonds smothering the frames, the numbers, the butterflies and the nestability label under the sentiment - it really does sparkle IRL. I was going to use gold glitter for their golden anniversary but it just looked a little "cheesy". But there is a gold chiffon bow nesting among the flowers.

Now to follow the glittery road to Dazzling Mina's blog and see what's sparkling over there. And if you love these images check them out at Mo's store - Jack and Ginger are HERE and the Bride and Groom are HERE.

Oh wow Debbie. You've blown me away, yet again. This image is one of my all time Mo favourites. I used this image for my grandparents 59th wedding anniversary last year. It so reminds me of them. They are both poorly at the moment and I miss them terribly. Signing off now before I short out the computer with my tears. Stunning work Deb. Hugs xo Jackie
