TTT tutorial

Do you like our new Top Tip Tuesday challenge blog look? I think it looks very smart indeed. 

It is my turn to host this fortnights challenge and tutorial. 

Out theme is :-

We have sponsors


For my tutorial I have used one of Birdie Brown's images Hedgehog and Little Friend. This has lovely autumnal feel, so I used nice warm colours. 

All the pieces below are the components for making a bottle tag.
Pop over to Top Tip Tuesday and see what I did.

Now it's your turn

It was a busy weekend here. We were preparing for the new shower being put in. So all set, I can't wait!

I am having problems with my printer and need new one. Anyone any suggestions on which one will print on card. Also when printing digital images they won't bleed with alcohol markers. I would be grateful of any help.

In between tasks I managed to make this card. Funny how sometimes inspiration comes and you know exactly what to make. 

This one is for Less is More and a couple of other challenges. 
I used Spellbinders curved border, Memory Box trees, Liquid Pearls, glitter & Cuttlebug Dots.

It has been a busy time at work and at home. I am about to train in a new job at work as of Monday, kind of looking forward to it. At home I am preparing to have a new shower installed. The old one bit the dust so we decided to do away with the bath and install a shower cubicle. I can't believe the upset this has caused in the whole house. Anyway enough of the boring stuff...

My card is using Penny Black Caroling Hedgehogs. I love this stamp.

I also used PM letters, Fiskers snowflakes, Promarkers, Stickles, Spellbinders curve border.

Very simple but effective. I think I may make a few of this design.

A quick post. I have missed so many challenges lately. I seem to chase my tail every day and week. It would be so nice to have a day to myself but that's not going to happen!

This card is made from a new Penny Black stamp I got a few weeks ago.
I used My Minds Eye papers, Promarkers & Nesties. The pictures are not too good as I took them on my little camera. Hubby will hopefully redo them tonight.

Off to do the shopping now and then to see my Grandson who is 4 today.
Have a good weekend.
