Exciting News ...

Well hellooo,

Here's the second post from me today (well, that's a first!) Lol.  I have some news ...

I was sat playing my game of 'Words with Friends', like you do on an evening, when my chat box popped up.  I was both surprised and thrilled to be asked by my good friend, Cazro, if I would like to join her on the Design Team over at 'The Alphabet Challenge Blog'.  Needless to say, I said YES please!!

So, this is a new venture for me and I hope you will come and play with me over at 'The Alphabet Challenge'.  This week the letter is 'U' and the theme is 'Under the Weather' - so we would like to see your projects that might cheer that someone up who is feeling a little under the weather.  Here's what I made for my very first DT project ...

I decided to make a cover for my tissue box which simply slides over the box, so when the tissues run out you can slide it off and add another box.  I used kraft card and papers from my stash and the edges of the paper are inked with Walnut Stain distress ink.  I decorated the top edge with a Doohickey Tilda Lace die, cut from the kraft card.  

Here's a closer look ...

Front View

The main image is 'Fizzy Moon - With Love'.  Fizzy is coloured with my Promarkers and the flowers are paper-pieced and decoupaged with scraps of the backing paper.  I added extra die-cut flowers with pearl centres and little punched flowers with pink adhesive gem centres.

Top View

The top includes a little sentiment which reads - 'Hope you're feeling better real soon', which was printed on my pc, cut out and inked.

Side View

The side is decorated with scraps of paper from my stash, including a little heart cut from the craft card and a punched flower.  The little daisy stamps across the bottom are from the Fizzy Moon stamp sheet.

Hope you like my first DT project for the Alphabet Challenge - why not pop over to the blog to see some more inspiration from my teamies.  I shall look forward to visiting your blogs and checking out your entries.

Hugz, Jan xx
