6th August 2010

and yet another Friday - whilst talking to a colleague this week we were commenting on how quickly the summer has passed us by....it rained here St Swithans day and boy, living up to its name, we've had rain, in one form or another, every day!! fed up of it now...Sun please??

Its a fun filled week with exciting news to share over at SCD this week and hopefully this month's challenge will encourage you to take part in our challenges.

Our first bit of news is that the mega talented ARTYJEN has joined us on the DT - if you don't know Artyjen, go and visit her fab blog..... and drool!! lolxx

Sioux (Artyjen) has also designed some FAB buttons for us - so please grab one and post on your blog....they are really swish - and a BIG Thank you to her for doing that xx

So, whats this month about then? The challenge this month is Torsos - ATC sized....a template has been provided over at SCD, but, there are other templates out there, but, please adapt them for 2.5" x 3.5" (the size of an atc).... this weeks theme is bling...

Here's mine:-


The torso was cut from white cardstock, coloured with di's and then masked and recoloured - the flowers were stamped with a text stamp - the edges were then inked. Bling was added and a white pen used to hi-light areas.

This month we are running an ATC swap - make your atc's and send them to me at the end of the month, I will return them on a 1/1 basis..... email me thro' my contact button on my blog and I will let you have my address - only ATC's sent with a sae will be swapped. You don't have to take part every week to participate in the swap...any further questions just ping me an email...

Pop on over to the SCD blog and see the other FAB torsos'...

Have a great weekend

TFL xx

Utterly gorgeous crafting - I think the torso challenge is such a good one. I haven't done any of the SCD challenges for last month (not intentional - just ran out of time every week) - will try to take part in the torso ones x
