Top Tip Tuesday #17

Good Top Tip Tuesday Morning To You All :)

What a gorgeous lot of 'Metal Mickey' projects we had last week - some adorable cards with an aray of metal embellishments and some amazing altered pieces too - fantastic - I thoroughly enjoyed looking through them all - thank you to everyone who joined in and pop over to TTT to see if you are one of our lucky winners :)

On to this week...

To mark the first week with our wonderful new Teamies we are holding an 'Open Challenge' - how cool is that - you can upload any project, using any technique!
Please make sure you link only new uploads, please link to the post and not just to your blog (the DT may not have time to comment if they have to look through your blog for the project...plus we'd get so engrossed in all of your amazing projects we wouldn't get around you all ;) and please make sure you leave a link back to Top Tip Tuesday in your post.

This week we have 2 amazing sponsors..


As it's an Open Challenge I decided not to make a card this week, instead I decorated another jumbo match box!

This was so simple with Gemstones cardstock, flowers, ribbon, metal corner piece and a few decorative sewing pins!!!

Make sure you pop over to Top Tip Tuesday to check out the rest of the DT's Open Challenge projects - I can guarantee you wont be disappointed :)

We hope you have time to join in with us this week and look forward to seeing your wonderful creations :)
