Secret Revealed!

Okay guess the cat can come out of the bag now! Well One of them anyway!

A week ago I got asked to become a .......................................

 Well what do you think I said? Of course I said yes, dont be daft!! So now I join the team over at Krafty Hands, and every month we have a challenge sponsored by the Fab Mike and Ian, the prize a £20 gift voucher to spend on the Kraftyhands Website as well as a blinkie.

The Top 3 will get a blinkie to display on their blog too.

So here's my offering for this months Challenge which is "Use Ribbon and Lace, using either an image or stamp by Krafty Hands, or a product from the online shop".

A month or so ago I went to the Doncaster show, and picked up the Team Santa mini cd, mini, yeah right! So I had this cd to hand, sorry for the pune as hubby would say, and when I was told to use ribbons and lace, this was where I went to first of all, I mean any excuse to play, right?

Okay so ribbon and lace........... okay lace behind my topper I think, and ribbon down the side...........okay so what topper to use, and what other embellies?

Right if you read my blog often enough you will know I have an e-craft, my latest toy, and I am still in playing phase with it, so this lovely set of houses just had to be used, with the topper which I printed out on A4 card. It is pre-shaped for either using with your dies, or hand cutting, and all I added was some fluffy stuff on the snow, for dimension, and a touch of iridescent Crafters Companion spray and sparkle. I added the lace to the back of the topper with double sided sticky, and then kept the dimension by using silicon glue to mount it to the card. A strip of lime green dotted gro-grain ribbon and a stamped sentiment over the left side of the dark green Matt, add the houses, and hey presto card done and dusted!

So what do you need to do now then? Well you need to pop to the shop, and get what you need, or what you already have, (you'd be surprised!) then pop to the challenge blog and post a picture of your card using the linky tool, and then keep an eye out to see if you have won!

Right off to play some more, I really must stop going to shows! Well that's never going to happen now is it? lol,

Have fun guys and girls, xxx
