The challenge this week over at Allsorts is.....
and I decided that my colour would be GREEN
now I know what you are thinking....it looks absolutely nothing like the sketch.....WHAT SKETCH ?????.....only remembered about there being a sketch to follow when I went back to link up to the challenge...talk about a Britney Spears meets Victor Meldrew moment....in the words of the song....OOPS....I DID IT AGAIN.....AND I DON'T BEELIEEVE IT. OH BOTHER!!! and that wasn't what I said....but there may be children reading this blog....I was spitting feathers and if it was physically possible I would have been booting myself up the bum good and proper but nothing else for it...start all over again and using the same components... here is "THE PROPER CARD" for the challenge..... followed the sketch to the letter and not such a disaster after all.....two cards for the price of one for the Christmas Card Box which... by the way...I have hidden away from those sneaky folks who keep plundering it .
Hero Arts Cling......Striped Circle
Sizzix Texture Plate
Buttons: Basic Grey Archaic
Ribbon: Maya Road
Sentiment: American Crafts Foam Thickers
Pink Petticoat....Tiny Alphas
Tim Holtz: Distress Ink Pad.....Peeled Paint
Gems from stash coloured with permanent marker pen
Can't help feeling that they need a little added extra to make them pop....come on by tomorrow and see if it has worked and it will be time for a sneaky peek. I am beginning to get excited.....tomorrow I will be off on my jolly to the SECC.....can't wait to see all my lovely buddies and have a real fun crafty day out....but first I need to hot foot it to Alford and get those scrummy Christmas Magic papers for my lovely Fiskars buddy Ann......catch up with you all later.
