CCT #72 - Tealy Good

Ooooh what a great theme this week from Cute Card Thursday - to use Red and Teal on your card. I really wasn't sure about this colour combo I have to say but WOW I lubs it!!

Tilda with Birdcage has bee coloured with Promarkers and I've used Basic Grey Urban Prairie papers with SU card. I got the sentiment ages ago as a little freebie from Sugar Nellie and stamped it with Teal Stazon. Flowers are from Orchid Crafts (thanks for the link Jacqui!).

Fabby DT cards this week so pop on over to CCT and check it out - you know you just have to!

Tilda & Friends ATC Challenges - Hey Presto!!

It's so long since I did any Design Team work so it's fabby to be joining in with this fabby theme this week for Tilda & Friends ATC Challenges, which is "Hey Presto" - that is turn your ATC into something else!! There's some stunning work from the rest of the DT so don't forget to pop on over and take a look.

I have had these metal lunch tins for ages and done nothing with them and as my ATC folder is overflowing thought I would actually use one of them to keep swaps in.

DP is MME Wild Asparagus and image is a Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girl, coloured with Promarkers. I painted the chipboard letters with bronze acrylic paint and sprinkled them with glamour dust whilst the paint was still wet - they look really shimmery in real life. The big flower was made using Caz's idea and I've added ribbon and some gems to finish it off.

Older (but probably not wiser!)

Yes - today I am 38!! Not sure how I feel about that one, although there is no chance of hiding my age seeing as how Ben has been announcing it to the world for the last few days!!

Loads of lovely cards, pressies and birthday wishes - thanks everyone. I managed to conveniently "misplace the memory" that I'd already had the photographic studio as an early birthday pressie and DH bought me a Sony E-book Reader which is fabby - thanks my love :-)

I have nothing new to show just now but I have spent the last two nights tidying up my desk and am now clear and ready to create. Shocking how many new stamps and papers I have that I haven't even used yet - time to remedy that I think!! Hope to be back with Tilda & Friends ATC Challenges and CCT this week and maybe join in with some other challenges too. Plus I have my Christmas crafting box unpacked and am starting with those "C" word cards.
