Woo hoo...can you believe it's TLT AGAIN! This year's just whizzing by lol. Before I rabbit on about this weeks challenge I want to thank everyone who entered last weeks challenge and for your lovely comments regarding the release of Baby Baby. Make sure you check out the Challenge Blog to see if you were one of the winners!
It's my flabulous co-ordinator Lisa's turn to pick the challenge :-D All I seem to do is square cards...don't know what it is but I love them but Lisa sent me into a bit of a tiz choosing the challenge - Anything But Square!! Uh oh...this meant I was going to have to think outside the box....outside the box ...get it lololol... square...box...lolololol. Boy I crack myself up sometimes! Anywho back to the challenge....normally I would have done a circle but then Mary J did 3 amazing circle cards for the blog hop so I binned that idea. Tams did an amazing triangle card for my birthday so I didn't want to do that either...she would have accused me of copying her lol! So there was nothing for it but to use my Stampin' Up! somethingorother die :-D
Have a look what I came up with...
I adore Guilty Jack and only had one sample for CHA so decided to ink him up. The pp is Nitwits that Annette gave me for my birthday...thanks Annette!
I coloured the dirt and decided it wasn't dirty enough so added a bit of brown flock to give it a bit of texture. I put Glossy Accents on the J and the rubber of his running shoes. My smallest crystals were too big for the flower centres so I used teeny weeny Papermania shimmer dots.
This is one of my favourite tricks. I wanted something other than a plain button so I grabbed a clear SU! button and punch a circle from the Nitwits paper and GA'd it to the back of the button. When it dried I poked the holes through and threaded some PTI twine through and tied it in a bow and voila...a coordinating patterned button!!
So that's it...I think it still needs something but couldn't decide what...maybe a bit of smudging of the edges? I'm happy enough and hope you like it. Make sure you check out the rest of the Ladybug's creations and leave plenty of love...you know we love to hear what you think :-D
I was busy last night working on the 'uniforms' and I have amazed myself lol. I am over the moon with the way they've turned out. I'm not going to say any more but check in tomorrow and you'll see what I'm talking about.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Catch ya later x
