Turquoise, brilliant!!

Hi there, lovely crafty people, I'm back today with a couple of cards for LIM, this time it's a colour, nice colour too, turquoise one of my all time favourite colours especially when teamed with brown or orange, yum yum!

 and here is the other! Bad light again here today, raining. Sorry about the quality of pictures :( But we have had some great weather so I'm not complaining (;D)

Love those funky bows LOL
In the centre of the bow are gems, quite sparkly...

I have inked, stamped, sprayed and coloured the card to within an inch of it's life and had the best fun :D New TH dies inspired me!

 For the first card I used

Tim Holtz die
Anna griffin Embossing folder 'Rosa'
Dylusions inks
Crafter's Workshop stencil, Mini Petals
Lace and Dylusions inks.

For the second card I used

Tim Holtz Bow Tied Die and the Mini Hearts mover and shaker die :D
Tim Holtz Hearts die

Thank you all for your lovely supportive messages about this coffee free zone, you have all helped tremendously :D I do feel better and my skin is looking better so something must be happening !!
Lovely to see you here, hugs Gay or 'Can'tavcoffee' as lovely Dotty Jo called me  LOLx

Why is it that when I try and do a less is more card I am never happy with it hahaha! Perhaps I need to 'let go' a bit eh. These are so gorgeous Gay!!!!

I have never gone back to coffee Gay and I did feel better for it. I am not completely caffeine free as I have tea. xxx

Chrissie said...

These are both gorgeous Gay, but then I would expect nothing less from you!
I'm sorry you can't make Ally Pally, hopefully next time!
Thanks so much
