I have been fiddling and faffing about last night and today with a couple of cards and thought I would share them with you here. For quite some time now my favourite colour has been shades of teal, turquoise and a liberal splattering of lime, I love the freshness of it and if you open my wardrobe door you will be met by a sea of these colours. For my birthday my sister gave me the most gorgeous light teal handbag from Next and my best friend, Sue , gave me amongst other things, a gorgeous interchangable watch set, it has 4 straps in varying colours, but so far hasn't made it away from the turq strap! I have teal/turq crocs( and I don't care that lots of people hate them!!! My feet feel fab in them!!) and have recently bought 2 lovely lightweight teal scarves...so yes, you could say I LOVE it! Anyway, I digress....so I decided to make some cards. I was drawn straight to those colours and this is what I came up with.
I love the cheeky little Magnolia Tilda Snowman, he is sooo cute and I can see him appearing on several cards for Christmas in an array of colours this year.
The other card is just a blank at the moment, not sure what occasion it will be for, but both cards are very sparkly with lots of Stickles on.
After I finished the cards I wanted to make some jewellery and was totally inspired by the cards and the colouring in them. I made 2 more Bag Charms( based on the design of the Blue and White one from the other week) with some of the new beads I bought a couple of weeks ago and also made a silver and lime nugget bracelet with a toggle clasp on it, so quite a productive day really.
I also got all the kits sorted and packed for this weeks classes at Jills ( Cardinal Colours).....I really think I may *need* to get me some more of those delicious E-Line Prima crystals and Pearls tomorrow or thursday night whilst I am there....well it would be rude not to wouldn't it???? Right, I am off to do the washing up....and maybe make something else beady.....
