Gratitude........


Good morning everyone and Happy Tuesday!

Isn't it nice when you actually make a card you like, lol?! I think it's the colours I'm pleased with..... I don't do a great deal with blues so it makes a nice change. The papers are from Basic Grey's Wisteria range and I have paper pieced Tilda's dress for a change and added lots of gems to her outfit. I had a go at making my own lili on this card and thought I might add a mini tutorial soon so you can see what I did..... it wasn't difficult and I think it looks pretty! Cute Card Thursday want us to 'Make It Your Own' so my flower works perfectly for this. I suppose the doily mat is also my own as I followed the wonderful Claudia's amazing tutorial here using a Martha Stewart butterfly corner punch (all the mini butterflies on my card are also from this corner punch.


I'm also entering the Passion For ProMarkers Challenge where the theme is Gratitude and the Everybody Art Challenge which is asking us to use pastel colours.

Well that's me..... I have a busy day ahead at the office so I'll catch you all later ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
