Good morning dear blogging chums. Hope everyone is good. My head is better, thank you. As for work, I'm playing that one by ear!
A big splashy welcome to The Pond to Rocky, Lilian and Valerie. Thanks for following the fun ladies.
Now, today's card is my very first DT card for Moving Along With the Times Challenge (MAWTT). I was kindly invited by Hazel (Didos) to join the team before Christmas and here is the first challenge of 2015. Hope you can all pop along and have a peek at what my talented team mates (including our Wendy) have created and even better, if you can join in.
This challenge, as chosen by Carole, is a photo/colour inspiration . . . . .
And I went for both, the flower in the picture and some of the colours too.
Peachy shades are not usually my cup of char but I did quite like the way the colours look on the finished card.
I decided to try something different (for me) with a gatefold card (a sheet of A4) with an aperture cut from the centre, going up a size on the top layer.
Cream base card (Ross)
Rich cream linen card (PMD)
Biscuit card (Lidl)
Peach card (Lidl)
Brown card (Lidl)
SB Labels 28
SB Ivy (D-lite) love it!!!
HC Delicate Asters
Docrafts flower punch
Tonic flower punch
Couture Creations Compassionate embossing folder
Distress inks (Bundled Sage, Antique Linen, Rusty Hinge, Victorian Velvet)
Memento Dew Drop inks (Bamboo Leaves, Rich Cocoa)
Crafters Companion sentiment
Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Golden Green gilding wax (Thank you John!)
Copper Krylon pen
Pearls and bling
Phew. . . . . . . . . that's quite a list!
This is the first outing for the Ivy die and I'm in love with it. Each leaf is a separate die and you get 2 different stems as well. Its a shame you can't really pick up the sheen from the gilding wax (boy, does that stuff whiff!).
Well, I hope that you all like my first MAWTT DT post. I look forward to having fun with the rest of the challenges to come.
I am also entering this into Darnell's NBUS challenge No 3 (as I've used my Ivy for the first time)
And Try it on Tuesday's my favourite things challenge as my favourite things to use are dies and particularly flower dies.
Just a couple of messages before I waddle off (still have Christmas weight to shift lol!!!).
Mrs B, I will do some pics, of how I do the banner, for next week.
Elaine (nattyboots) enjoy your travels, hopefully somewhere warmer than here.
Sue & Sue, great news about the NEC. Will the ASBO be expired by then lol!!!
To everyone who has tried the Thank Crunchie its Friday recipe, glad you have enjoyed it and apologies to your dentists (mind you, the dentists will be happy as it will be funding their yachts!!!)
And as always, thank you for your kind visits and comments. Back in a few days with a pic of Karen's (karenlotty) terrific card.
