It’s time for a new cue word over at CASology and this week’s word is sure to make you smile (as will the design team call that’s going on until December 15)!

Everywhere I look lately there is an abundance of glitter and shine!  DS3 points everything out to me when we run errands.  I think he’s quite taken with all the sparkle this time of year brings!

For my card, I couldn’t get the image of an engagement/wedding ring out of my head, so I went digging through my stash, sure I had just the image.  I must have parted with the one I was thinking of.  No matter!  I found an image of two wedding bands and added a sparkly gemstone, hoping one would pass as a diamond ring!

This turned out to be a very simple card, but I’m okay with that!

Be sure to visit the rest of the team’s blogs, including our talented guest designer, Birgit!  Then, don’t forget to link up your own creation on the challenge blog by Sunday, December 9, at noon (CST)!  Hope to see you there!

Have a terrific Tuesday!
