My daughter, Miss Serious is 8 years old, and from about the time she could talk, she has loved anything that is sparkly. The more eye-catching the better, and if she could, she would have something that sparkles on everything she owns, from bathing suits to shoes. I'm hoping she can tone down her preferences a bit as she gets older, or she is going to be one fantabulous fifty-year-old.
So, when my mom asked me what I wanted for Christmas, and I told her I wanted glitter, she commented that I sounded just like Miss Serious. But, I very kindly received a sparkly package of all the colors of glitter I could stand on Christmas, and I finally got to try some out yesterday.
I must say, black glitter is really cool. I originally put it on this card because I tried to just write the word "thanks." Unfortunately, my handwriting leaves much to be desired, and I thought maybe if I made it sparkle it would look better (because, as my daughter often comments, "Everything looks better with glitter..."). After that, Miss Serious (of course) suggested that I make the tree sparkle, and we were off to the races! I'm not sure if all the glitter will fall off onto the recipient's lap, (sort of negating the whole "thank you" thing), but who said opening cards was for the faint of heart?
