Glitter Explosion Blog Hop {CLOSED}

Welcome to the Glitter Explosion blog hop.  Inspired by of her glitter glue bottles clogged up and when she squeezed a bit too hard she said, "Nina, it was a glitter explosion!"  :-)
I'm super excited to have these wonderful talented group of crafters joining me today  and a special welcome to John!  See, told ya men craft too!

OK so glitter can get is messy, but I still like it....everything looks better with glitter! Here's a card I created using Martha Stewart's Glitter By Number, Retro Flower kit.  I bought it after Christmas sale for $3....I had planned to use the glitter for other projects, but never got around to it.
Here's my second card, the glitter paper is by DCWV and the saying is from the bottom of a cupcake wrapper by Paula Deen.  The cupcake and the "happy birthday" circle is a stamp set by SOL HappyBday2You.

Blog candy? Yes, I have some, but you must leave a comment at each blog stop.  I will choose the winners on Wednesday, June 1st.
One person will get 50 yards of twine, 10 yds. of each color and Martha Stewart Glitter.

...and one person will get both stamp sets.

Your Next Stop is the creative Gaby from Gaby Creates.
Here's the line up in case you get lost along the way or find broken links.
