Tuesday Taggers Guest Design Spot!

The big day has finally arrived and here I am at 5.30am writing this post because I have to go to work at 6.45 am!!! My debut is at Tuesday Taggers and this is the card I made for their Punches and Diecuts challenge. As regular visitors here will know - I DON'T HAVE A DIECUT MACHINE!!!!!! So I used my punches. My favourite one at the moment is the 7.5" Scallop Circle by Woodware. I also used various flower punches from Woodware too. The circle punch is an X Cut which I got from The Range.

Pink Cat Studio, Fairy Friends and Q.T Hooty Owl. I bought mine from Nikki Fairbairn, her shop is here. I ordered one day and received them the next - excellent service.They were coloured in using my C'Aran D'Ache watercolour pencils and Sakura Stardust gel pens, for a bit of bling(can't really see this from the piccies though!).The ribbon is one of Anitas Everyday ribbons - purple polka dot. Most of the punched shapes are from glitter card - my favourite!!

The card was made using the Lavendar and Lace CD Rom from My Craft Studio. Using the graphics package included I was able to create this word book. I could try to do a tutorial of sorts if there is enough interest!

I made the card for my daughters 3rd birthday which was last week and she loved it. Particularly the fairy characters.

The flowers on the page above are from the Sugar Birdies CD rom from Polka Doodles .

On the last page there were some gems from my craft stash.

So there you have it. I hope it goes down well!!!! Comments gratefully received as always.

Oh Ali, it is simply gorgeous. What little girl wouldn't be over the moon to receive such a lovely card. Even though I liked the one you did for Alex, you can see how you have grown over the months of blogging and creating. Well done you and super well done on your Guest DT spot - well deserved!!!

Hey you, this is just brill. Must have taken you ages. I don't think I have the patience for that amount of work in one card.

Thanks for your lovely comment about my GD spot. I am so excited, it's for a few months and you get to do as many or as few cards as you want. So that suits me really well.
