Tando Creative's Birthday Bash Blog Hop!

Well what an exciting 7 days it's been over at the Tando Creative blog this week!

If you have landed here from Carol's gorgeous blog Krafty Pieces then you are in the right place!

Today draws to close the fun activities of the past week with a "History of Tando" Birthday Bash Blog Hop.. as one of the newer members of the Design Team I am using some of the newer pieces of chipboard on my creation from March & July 2011..

Here is my card to celebrate!

Stamps used: Minkygirl & Twinkie

A special card for a special lady.. Well Done Di and Many Congratulations, I hope Tando celebrate many more birthdays to come.. Gez xx


For my card, first of all I laid some stars from the Grab bag onto a piece of white cardstock
Then I sprayed the card with dye inks.. (the fun messy part!)

Next I stamped my two gorgeous party buddies from Stampotique Originals onto bright white cardstock
~ they are actually mounted on tiny 3D foam pads!

Then it was time to get busy doodling with a black pen on the small Speech Bubbles

and also, some of the small Straight Bunting

  12. I think I'm right behind Kay this morning in the blog hop; it feels quite strange to know I'm 'following' someone that way but I know why. All the designers have their own style of course to interpret what starts off life as basic chipboard or masks. I'm having a great Sunday morning learning about Tando. TFS
