Feeling Very Honoured

Yes...I am very honoured today to be the guest designer on Tuesday Taggers after winning the Handbags and Gladrags challenge a few weeks ago.

This is the card I made for them which had to include a Christmas Tree.

This is where the peel off got used from the last card. I sprayed Key Lime, Starfish and gold glimmer mists all over it and let the card dry thoroughly. Crimson brilliance ink was then gently rubbed over just to highlight the design a bit more before the peel off was removed. I coloured some of the baubles with a gold gel pen and added stickles and some gems. The BP was Dovecraft again I think.

I'm pedalling very hard to try and keep up with everything at the minute. Those dreaded Christmas cards have been finished at last. The problem was I didn't like what I'd done and didn't know how to rectify them. A bit of ribbon and a greeting sorted the problem.

My JYC has been started but I still want to have a go at Tim's tags and those gorgeous roses that Brenda has shown in a brilliant tutorial today. You can see them here.

Then there's housework, Christmas preparations and all the other usual jobs to be done. I really don't know how you hardworking Bloggers find time to do everything AND go to work!!

Happy Crafting and thank you for stopping by.

Beautiful card Lisa and peel-offs can be brilliant, you just need to know how to use them :). I often visit a local craft shop where the owner does fab things with them and inspires me all over again.

Going to work and crafting and blogging: well I just don't do any housework LOL!

Congratulations on the DT spot
