Top Tip Tuesday

Good morning, thank you for all your nice comments yesterday ... I do have SOME visits to do :P sorry for not been around much lately but this has been taking up all my free time and I've been jogging and walking and sweating and eating so much much less he he .. at least I'm getting nearer my goal now and my bum is getting smaller  :P .. mum not so pleased though. She is still with those antique ideas that people shouldn't be slim!!  

Anyways I have two cards for today and this is my first one and I made it for the new challenge starting today at Top Tip Tuesday where lucky me I am a Guest Designer there, this challenge being my last week. Thank you girls for having me with you, I really enjoyed it and you will definitely be seeing more of me :D  


So now about the card ... The theme for this fortnight's challenge is MASCULINE CARDS and today I did something very different, no stamping, no colouring, but printing and cutting and layering for a decoupage effect. I had so much fun making this card, and really loved how it turned out..

And my TIP now of course.. can't be a guest at Top Tip Tuesday without a tip :P 
If you are not going to re-ink those small ink pads when they dry up, don't throw them away but use them with distress inks instead of the blending foam pads. Hope you like it and hope you like my card too. 

Will be back with some challenges and my next card, which this time is for the new challenge at Emerald Fairies.

Thank you for looking

Great tip Dora, I have loads of those tiny ink pads slowly drying up, so will use them now..fabulous Thomas card too, fabulous papers and layers...I have a tip too, which has worked so well for my daughter..after exercising, eat something, your meal for instance.. as the body is still working and digests very quickly..my daughter has lost 15 kilo now, after years of wasted hard work.

Luv CHRISSYxx
