Top Tip Tuesday #20

Naughty me................
I'd scheduled this post for 8.30 this morning (or so I thought!), just got in from work and checked and I'd done it for the 2nd not the 1st - that's what you get for writing a post gone midnight the day before - you don't need to change the date....Doh!

Good Top Tip Tuesday Morning to you all!

Well weren't those heart flowers that Leanne shared with us last week amazing....and we had 211 fabulous entries into our 'Fabulous Flowers' challenge :)

Pop over to TTT to see if you are one of our lucky winners this week!

This week it is our lovely Dawn's turn to share her seemingly unlimited knowledge with us.
She has produced the most fantastic tutorial to use up those ribbon pieces we all have - and if anyone says they are not at least ankle deep in ribbon off-cuts, then they obviously never look down ;)

Unfortunately I can't upload a picture of Dawn's wonderful creation :(
Not sure if it's not compatible with my programmes or if Blogger is playing up!
I'll try again later but just pop over to TTT to see what I'm talking about.

We have 2 wonderful sponsors again this week...


Our challenge this week is to create a 'Girly' project.

Here's my offering for this week...

I have used my Cuttlebug to embossed the backing sections, then added TH 'Barn Door' Distressing Ink. The sentiment is a stamp from 'Cloud 9' 'Love' set and the flowers are of course from Wild Orchid Crafts. The heart pin started off life pink - but I used a permemant pen to colour it.
The ribbon I picked up from The Range at the weekend.

As always please ensure you follow the rules as on the TTT Blog.

And don't forget you have 4 chances to win a prize this week - your 3 'Girly' entries and your Top Tip left in the comment section :)

Have fun.....
