The Mad Hatter

I'm late, I'm late for a very important date no time to say hello, goodbye, I'm late, I'm late I'm late.
Apologies everyone for being so late posting my creation for Tuesday Taggers this week, if I'd left it much longer it would have become Wednesday Taggers.
Well the theme for the challenge this week is Messy hands and believe me my hands have been extremely messy this week. Not only from doing this challenge but because I've been helping my son decorate his first home that he and his girlfriend are buying. This is the reason for my being late too.
There is a bonus for entering the challenge this week, the Craft Barn have kindly sponsored us and are giving a £15 voucher for the winner chosen randomly, to spend in their fantastic shop. So big thanks to them, and good luck to everyone. Don't forget to post a link to the Craft Barn to be eligable for the prize. I must say how pleased we are to see so many entries for the challenges and what fantastic entries they are too, you clever lot. As usual you can create whatever you choose as long as it involves mess and you post a pic of your messy hands or workspace.
I decided to go with a little wall hanging this time round.
The diamonds are grunge paper embossed in the cuttlebug and coloured using a mix of Crystal laquer and cosmic shimmer mica powders. The edges have been embossed using black glitter embossing powder also cosmic shimmer.
The flowers have been stamped and embossed (black glitter EP) onto paper misted with cosmic shimmer spray then coloured with the cosmic shimmer powder.
The word love has been cut using my lovely pink slice and the edges embossed with the black glitter EP.
Just wish all the shimmer and glitter showed up on the photo.

Well thanks for stopping by and I'm sorry I haven't posted much lately but what with the decorating and also a commission I've got on the go I'm struggling to find time. You should see the mountain of washing and ironing!
Bye for now,
Love Pat xx
