First, the card. This weeks dare was sponsored by Funky Hand and the challenge was to make a card using a template posted on the DCM blog (view here). I needed to do a birthday card ready for when I go back to work tomorrow and so it provided some much needed inspiration. Here's the finished item:
I used K&CO Amy Butler papers, hobbycraft ribbon, cuttlebug cake die, cuttlebug bloom dots embossing folder and more Sizzix felt flowers.
Today's HerSpace:MySpace prompt was 'Sweet'. I don't need much encouragement to find 'Sweet' in my space, although I found these babies down at the Spar this morning and decided to give them a good home.
I love Tunnocks tea cakes and I've found out via the wonder of the interweb and the fabulous I Like website that they have a tea room at the factory. A trip (further) up north beckons methinks! (Check out the I Like pics of the tea room here)
I also found another sweet in my space courtesy of my sugar pourer as I have been doing lots of brewing up for the joiner who is working hard on the new Crafty Blogger kitchen.
Over the last week I've also discovered the joy of Flickr. I hadn't really used the site before but I registered to post my pictures of the Midland Hotel and Morecambe. I'm loving the whole 'group' thing. A couple of my pics were picked up by the admin for a Midland Hotel group which introduced me to the whole concept, but today I found that 'Jug of Tea' has it's own group, so I just had to join and post the pic I had taken on my birthday trip (see earlier post). It's great that a derelict seaside tea hut has been photographed by so many people.
