Morning and welcome to Triffik Tuesday

mind you, no idea what's so triffik about it really as I have about a ton of ironing and no wish to get started - it's the chore I hate most in all the world (sorry - next to cleaning windows).

Still, it IS Tuesday and that usually means a little time spent watching QVC and crafting along - however, this week's show is apparently 1:00 -3:00 as opposed to 14:00 - 16:00 so I shall have to try to remember. According to the QVC guide it's because Sheryl Crow has a show at 15:00!!!!

There's also another competition on Lets Get Stamping for the week's stamp giveaway over on http://www.craftbubble.com/ - wonder what today's theme will be . . . and I still have two anniversary cards to do as commissions for friends. UPDATED to read: todays challenge over on Lets Get Stamping is a card featuring EMBOSSING (dry, heat, embossing folders all acceptable for entries). If you want to have a go you have until 08:00 Wednesday to post your photo either in the thread or on the Lets Get Stamping gallery - good luck, and WELL DONE to Sharon (Doodles) on winning the Monday competition with her lovely easel card which you can see here

Ran up this cute little card last evening, using this cute sugar nellie image and colouring with pro markers and highlighting with holographic glitter. I rounded the corners and edged with a deep pink ink before attaching to a piece of patterned (and flittered) card from a fabulous DCWV stack. I had a perfect offcut of ribbed pink which I attached centrally to the card before adhering the image panel and finished off with two faux gemstones.

BBL by which time, hopefully, I'll have found something interesting to write about . . . .
