Top Tip Tuesday 18 - Word Book or Use a Sentiment Challenge

You really need to go over to Top Tip Tuesday for this! My team-mate Carol has made a fab tutorial on how to make a word book! I can't wait to have a go myself as I've never made one!
This week, if you don't feel up to a word book for your entry, just make the main focal point of your project a sentiment or verse.

Also we have a fab prize for someone from our sponsor 

Some lovely goodies there!

I've made mine this week, for my daughter's partner (...there MUST be a better word for such a close relation, especially such a lovely one...!) Antony.

I couldn't find what I wanted ready made so I made mine myself.

The papers are Shabby Princess papers which I've printed off myself and layered. The inkpad is Tim Holtz 'Tumbled Glass', the leaves an L-Em punch and the verse mats are Nesties.  There's a little bit of Copics Spica to give a bit of glimmer too.

I'm entering this into the Wild Orchid Challenge as they have the same theme as us this week!  I buy all my paper flowers from them although, ironically, there are none on Antony's card....well, blokes don't like roses, do they?

I hope you (...and Antony...!) like it!

I don't know what's going on with Blogger but my piccies keep going funny and disappearing!
I've fixed them a couple of times now but they may disappear again.
If soemone could let me know that would be good!


  1. OMW Ei, this is just amazing. That beautiful and heartfelt sentiment has me crying. Antony must be so pleased his 'MIL' who isn't actually loves him!
