Tuesday Alchemy - New Challenge Blog

Hi, and welcome!

Well, after my mini-moan, last night, you really cheered me up with your lovely comments....thank you!
To answer a question........Hannah has made her decision about university....she wants to study at Huddersfield, because they have the best selection of subjects that will  help her get to where she wants to be.......and it's only 35 miles away, so she can be home on the weekend (if she chooses...haaa), and she'll be close to family friends, too.  She already regularly attends Church discos, and other events, there and has a ready-made group of friends waiting for her....so, fingers crossed that she gets the results she needs!

I wanted to give a shout-out about a newish challenge blog, TUESDAY ALCHEMY.
Corinne, one of the Design Team, left me a lovely comment, so I went over for a nosey around....y' know what I'm like.......and I'm hooked!  
They have a lovely BLACK & WHITE challenge, at the moment, and I couldn't resist takin' it up...........Had to be a very quick one, though.........Bevan had eaten all my stash of digestive biscuits, and I can't go to bed without my biccie and bottle of water, so had to go out and buy some!

The beautiful Memory Box wreath die was a Mother's Day pressie from Daughter #2, and this was its first airing....love it!
The card base is black pearlescent.....didn't know I had any 'til I went diggin'....haaaa!.......

The sentiment was from a huge pack that I've had for almost a century, lol.........was originally cream, but did my usual with the Promarkers.........and layered it onto a scrap of white corrugated card.........

Can't remember  where I got the flowers, but I layered 3 of 'em up and added a lovely pearl brad.........all finished off with a bit of  sheer white ribbon....nice!

I hope you can pop over and check out TUESDAY ALCHEMY.....looks like they are goin' to be a fun place to be!

That flower is fab! Have just been to Tuesday Alchemy to have a look and I love the mix of crafts they represent. Will try to fit it into my week :) (maybe instead of the ironing?!)

  2. Lovely card. i'm loving the black and white theme and that flower is gorgeous.
