I found this amazing glitter card stock at my local book/stationery store just before Christmas - the glitter is so fine AND it does not come off at all. In fact, the shimmer is so fine it should be called Glimmer card stock. A miracle - glimmer without finding glitter everywhere.
So I knew I would be using it for this challenge.
I love this Simon Says Stamp die ... so delicate.
And a close up of that amazing glimmer ...

Here in Mauritius, it's time to batten down the hatches. We have a cyclone heading straight for us ... and will be closest sometime tomorrow. Cyclone Berguitta has been taking her time to come. We have been Class 3 warning all day, and have been stuck at home while howling winds and driving rains continue outside. We've been safe so far and still have electricity, but there are parts of the island that have been without all day.
We've had deluges of rain every day this year (not had much sun at all!). That has made the ground very soggy and could result in so much more damage.
* Update on the cyclone (Thursday 18 January, 11pm) : We spent 2 days in Class 3 and the cyclone came within 25km of the east coast. A tremendous amount of rain and a lot of wind, but as the cyclone weakened, there was not nearly as much destruction as there could have been. I know a lot of areas have been flooded, and areas without electricity - but personally we were VERY lucky and have minimal damage. Just small branches over the garden and all our mangos and avocados are off the tree.
Schools will remain closed tomorrow as there are a lot of roads that are still impassable and flood damage in many places.
A few more pictures ... beaches on the east coast got a real hammering. Some of them lost a lot of beach sand.
The closest point to Mauritius.
