Cosmo Cricket Sunday

When you see a challenge with a tutorial I suggest you actually read the instructions instead of looking just at the pics. I wanted to edge this tent card for the Just Magnolia challenge with red cardstock but couldn't get it right but if you read the instructions it will tell you to cut the circle out with them both together duh.
I also didn't want Tilda tangling since my fingers are still having pins and needles problems and have to fiddle with split rings just wasn't going to happen. So I backed the circle with acetate and stuck Tilda on the front. The papers are Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety I think its called.
I stuck the two pieces together with the thin red dst that once stuck never comes apart but thinking about it now I could have connected it with the ribbon and bow rather than stick a bow on it. Still I pleased with my first attempt.
I had a great day at MJ Every Moment Matters crop even though I have to get up really early to be at Sis so that Hubby can get back to work on time. You can stay really late but will only manage to about seven. I've almost managed to catch up with my 52-10 prompts just the journalling to do.

Hi, this is absolutly stunning. The colours are so cheerful. Those papers are to die for - cosmo are my absolute fave papers, so much so that i have a 10 tier rack for my papers and one tray is designated for cosmo. I very rarely use it though - can't bring myself to cut it lol. so have treated myself to a few 6x6 pads and find it a little easier to use. Sorry for waffling -just wanted to share my thought lol
