Diamonds are a girls best friend...........

Well they would be if I had any hint hint hint! Tell a lie I have a lovely ring that W bought me for my birthday but still its not the engagement kind lol!!!!

Anyhoo the Bling-Bling was the theme behind this weeks dare set by the lovely Lynda. She challenged us to use Bling and Beads to add a little sparkle into our lives.

This weeks card nearly had me throwing my Robo out the window in frustration, hence we have a simple card this week before I gave up in frustration.

Engagement Congratulations
As I said due to technical differences this weeks card was a bit simple, but I am actually quite pleased with it. I started with a Tall pure white card blank and run a strip of blue American Crafts ribbons along the bottom. Using a piece of metallic blue card I cut the words Congratulations (minus the o!) in Lucidia Calligraphy on my craft robo. Then again using the robo and gold card I printed an engagement ring (using a template from Diane on

Using my KandiKane hotfix Crystal wand I attached a heart shapes crystal for the ring stone and 3 small round crystals at the bottom of the ribbon. Et Voila, an engagement card with a bit of bling ;)

Please head on over to Daring Card Makers to see what other ideas the design team came up with, dont forget to drop us a line with your creations too!

Till next week - HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

That's so clever. One day, when my CR, the pc and I have sorted out our "technical differences" (Tracie, I just love that phrase!), I'll be able to make things like this too! At the moment I can't even seem to manage to load view the help stuff on UKS though!
