1 to 10

Each month my friend Anne and I do a swap - we have a running ATC theme which we do 3 a month and then 3 other ATC's which we take in turns to choose the theme and then along with Mandy we make 9 twinchies a month and take it in turns to choose the theme for those too.....this last running ATC theme we decided to do 1-10 and for a change I decided to make all ten into a set.....so here there are:-

All of the numbers were cut on the cricut using the black letter cart....and these were cut on co-ordinations cardstock which was then run thro' the cuttlebug with the swiss dots embossing folder. Each set of three were then stamped and hi-lighted to make their "set" using various stamps and turquoise chalk ink which was also used to edge each white card. Each number was given its number in gems too....then I added different sayings for each number, so; 1= 1p for them, 2 = terrible twos, 3 = 3's a crowd, 4 = time 4 tea, 5 = 5 high, 6 = half a dozen, 7= lucky 7, 8= figure of 8, 9 = 9 lives and 10 = perfect 10!

Great set! Love the way you've added the "correct" number of gems for each digit and the little sayings for each one are perfect, love it!
