Fab Friday Challange

Okay, I know its only Thursday, but for once in my life I'm being early (whats going on..........!!!).

I realised tomorrow may be a bit busy, I'm on QVC in the morning (only a few min's in the 11am hour), then I have lots of work to do for Saturday night/Sunday morning, so all that waffle brings me to my first Fab Friday Challenge.........ta da

Beautiful and Bright is the challenge, so ATC's using lovely bright colours whether it is the cardstock you are using, a photograph of something bright, or even someone beautiful (and bright though!!). I quite like twists on the theme, as long as you can explain your twist.

My card is using lovely papers from Creative Imaginations. I used pink cardstock for the ATC base, then made a smaller layer from blue card. The blue card was attached to the base using a thin piece of card which folds down, and acts as a stand. I used the large check paper to partially cover the base, rub-ons (a wavy line and row of dots) close to the edge, and decorative paper strengthners with a brad - this also acts as a stopper when the blue front of the card is stood up.

The blue card has been decorated with the fantastic rub-on (I cut this in half, obviously saving the other bit for another project), then an adhesive tag which has been popped onto card, cut out and eyeletted. Attach with 3D foam, then add a cardstock sticker (matted onto yellow card and cut out), also attached with 3D foam.

The bright yellow thing in the photo is a matching envelope (not necessary for the challenge, but hey why not!!).

Well, that's my first attempt, I hope to do some more myself this week, which I can then send out to my "newies" joining the club (fingers crossed).

I look forward to seeing your wonderful creations.

Morning Leonie!
What a fab idea the challenge is! I love it! Here is my Beautiful and Bright ATC!

Love Sharon
P.S haven't tried the choc Hob Nobs - will investigate!! Had an 'Easter Practice' last night and ate an egg! Time to put the kettle on ready to watch you on the box.

Me again!
Don't know why that didn't come up as a link like Daisy's? Perhaps you can help Daisy? If you click on my picture, scroll down and click on my name you can get into my blog with the ATC that way. Sorry!

Fabrizio said...

Sharon you need to put your link within HTML coding:

put your web address between

[a href" your web address "] Title of your web address or the web address itself [/a]

replace all the [ ] brackets with < otherwise my example wouldn't show.

Leonie I put a shameless plug of your ATC book on my blog. I'm making an ATC as I type this (well not at the same time)...

Are you going to be at Olympia Leonie as I'd like your lovely ATC book to be signed by you and meet you...of course ! LOL

Fabrizio said...

Sorry Sharon i forgot the equal sign just after href so it should read href= etc....

sharon said...

Thanks Fabrizio
I think I understand!
I'll try it for next weeks challenge!
