Divas By Design DT... Finally!

Didn't quite get chance to post this this morning, but I've finally managed! Here's my card for this week's Divas By Design challenge, where our theme for you this week is 


I dug out some of my oldest stamps for this challenge. They're all (probably long retired) High Hopes stamps, coloured with Distress Inks. With a touch of white acrylic marker & lots of Glamour Dust! Sadly the photos do not do the sparkle justice. I covered the fish in Glossy Accents & immediately regretted not using Crackle Glaze. But then I accidentally dropped one face down & voila, texture!! So I then had to 'drop' the other too!

This is for our wedding anniversary next month. Not an obvious choice for an anniversary card I hear you cry. But the sentiment on the inside (below) makes it a little more romantic! I actually made him a very similar card years ago. There's a test for him. I wonder if he'll remember - no pressure, lol!

I hope you'll join us at Divas by Design for our challenge this week, which will is sponsored by the wonderful Crafty Ribbons

I am entering this at Papertake Weekly & Crafting from the Heart, where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.

Well, in Dec 2011 I made my first card for the Divas By Design DT. All good things must come to an end & it is with a heavy heart I have decided to step down. I want to try lots of new crafty things. With 2 gorgeous children, an almost full time job & just life in general, crafting time is increasingly scarce to experiment in new directions. My decision also opens the way for some new lovely & mega talented ladies to join the Divas family. I'm sure they will enjoy the journey as much as I have. I'm also grateful for the opportunity to have worked with lots of wonderful crafters on the Divas DT & will miss them all.

 So watch this space to see where my creativity takes me!

Thanks so much for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
