Me to You :)

I nearly did a flip when I saw the advert in issue 26 of Docrafts mag for the new Me to You/ Tatty Teddy range! I couldn't wait till it came out and snapped up the card stock stickers, papers (which I defo  need more of!!) and a few of the rubber stamps.

I rushed them home and as it was half term had time to play with them. I decided to make a special 21st birthday card for a friend and this is what I came up with:

                   (Please excuse the yellowing sealing on the windowsill!! Its on the To Do List!!)

I'm well impressed with how well the colours match! Not a bad card for me considering it only took an hour. These things can sometimes take me forever but it all came together quite nicely.

So this is what I used:
  • 5 by 5 white card blank folded to make an easel shape
  • Me to You/Tatty Teddy card stock stickers and 6x6 papers
  • Pink card (which weirdly looks two different shades in the photos) 
  • LOTV sentiment stamp
  • Tiny flat backed pearls
  • MS little butterfly punch coloured with a PM.
  • Circle and scalloped circle nesties
  • Card candi
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Still on placement! I typed this up two weeks ago when I was actually off school ill. I think it was the stress and a bug combined - not good at all :( Anyway all better now and only two weeks to go! Love the school and the kids but I cant wait till I actually have a life instead of spending all of my time in front of a computer planning or constantly thinking about placement. It feels like I'm jumping through a lot of hoops at the mo!

Must go do some planning!
Hope you are all well.
