Lead me not into temptation

The lovely Megan J gave me the heads up that my shoes card would fit in with the current challenge at House of cards as the March challenge is silhouette. Given that I have several of the stamps sets in the range that haven't yet seen ink, I decided to make another card to enter the challenge. This time I glittered the cocktail, after all who doesn't like sparkling alcohol! I tried to show the sparkle of the glitter in the second pic, but it's so dark and gloomy at the moment, no doubt more rain is on the way.
As you may have noticed, I'm blogging rather than stash sorting. Hubby phoned at half eleven this morning to say that he was just outside Birmingham on his way home. The competition today had been cancelled due to the storm that hit overnight. Obviously this meant that I wasn't going to have until seven tonight to sort things out. Fortunately I'd finished sorting out my dies and stamps which had been taking up most of the floor and the combined stamp and die sets whilst not all sorted in the packets, were at least in one box. So, with the floor in this state

I just tidied the boxes away and tried to find the surface on the kitchen table again. The coffee table of craft at the back of this picture will just have to wait for another day. Hope you're all enjoying your Easter Monday and that you're not rescuing your fence from your neighbour's garden!
