Tuesday Taggers Challenge
(please link them in your post
in order to enter the prize draw)
Hi there! Well time for another challenge at Tuesday Taggers and this week the theme has been set by our fantastic and extremely talented teamie Michelle. I think this theme offers plenty of scope design wise and I just can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.
As usual we don't mind what you create as long as it fits the theme of memories. We are sponsored this week by the Craft Barn so don't forget to post a link to them to be in with a chance of winning their fabulous prize of a £15 voucher to be spent in their online store.
If you need inspiration check out the DT fanatstic creations which I'm sure will get your juices flowing.
Here's what I came up with.
I haven't done any stamping at all on this card so you would think not much work to do. Well you'd be right except for the fact that the flippin Fleur de Lis pendant shapeability (available from the Craft Barn) although gorgeous is a b***** to get out of the die. Incase any of you are having the same problem I'll share a little tip that I came up with after I'd prodded and poked for what seemed an age. I placed a piece of thin cards between the die and the card I wanted to cut the shape out of and ran it through the bug. The die cut through both layers leaving the thin card in the die and the other loose, voila!
Now then here's what I used. The image is from a Crafty Individual miniatures pad Places and  People (available from the Craft Barn) and does have the word memories on it although it's not showing up too well on the photo. The DP's are Basic Grey sugared and a Laura Ashley (top layer), the ribbon is one I salvaged from a box of chocs (they were yummy!)

Phew that was quite a long winded post wasn't it, hope you didn't get too bored with my witterings. Looking forward to checking out your creations.
Catch you soon
Hugs, Pat xx

    Love everything about it, a wonderful feel of Victoiriana.
