Cupcake Craft Challenge DT Piece / OSCC


Hello to all and welcome to another challenge for this weeks Cupcake Craft Challenge. Ida has set the theme and she has chosen a colour combo for you to use. I really enjoyed using these colours, fresh and vibrant and again I chose not to make a card but a hanging post it holder. I coloured Tilda with a mix of Copics and Promarkers and cut her out. I covered a piece of heavyweight card with papers from BG Gypsy and added milky gems and a strip of ribbon. Attached Tilda with Silcone and added lots of pretty flowers are her. Threaded some fibres but not sure if I'm happy with the colours, think something more subtle may be better so may change that. My 1st time at creating one of these, sometimes I like to experiment and ever better if it turns out OK. Do pop on over to the Cupcake Challenge as see what other beautiful creations the DTs have come up with.

I've not been around much this weekend and next week though I thought would be back to normal will be even busier. We viewed our dream home at the weekend so getting our property on the market is more urgent now as we need to sell in order to offer on this beautiful house. Its in a stunning location, massive kitchen and immacute condition. The 2 acres garden is ideal for all of us and I really dont want to loose this house so hubby managed to paint my utility room this weekend, even put up new shelves, I been working my backside off, tidying sorting and trying to keep the house in reasonable order so next week we will be getting estate agents in for valuations and fingers crossed will be on the markdet soon. Dont like this HIP milarky though, will delay the marketing of our house but just praying we sell quickly, keep all your fingers crossed for us please!!

Anyway, will be out and about today and entering this card into the One Stop Craft Challenge which is "Not A Card".
Thanks for looking and will be about most evenings so see your beautiful creations
