Shhhh!! It's a Secret!

Hey! It is Sunday! Yay! OMgoodness - we are so tired today! We had another big day yesterday cleaning and tidying the house for the exhibition... yup... still waiting for someone to make an offer to buy it. Sigh. But no complaining - it is only week three :o) 

There is a new challenge up at MDUC today! This week we are sponsored by Tickled Pink Stamps and the challenge is... "Shh - Its a Secret!" - we want you to hide something in your creation... sounds like fun doesn't  it? I know I initially had trouble coming up with an idea but I was looking around for some interesting tutorials and found one on Stampartic... for this.....

Please excuse the dodgy paint on the door :S I was experimenting, trying to give the door a bit of a shabby look and it backfired, lol. I need to get some of the Copic Opaque White. I think that would make a big difference. 

So this is what my little project looks like when it is opened out...yeah, I went a bit Doo Hickey mad :o)

Fun yeah? I thought so. The pocket is secured into the folder with a brad and there is a tag in the pocket. It was heaps of fun to make. I think I'll be doing another one soon. 

And here is little Edwin. He is just adorable bringing home his basket of apples and gift for Tilda.  

All of my embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts and all images are coloured with Copics.  The papers are all by Magnolia. 

I hope you get a chance to come and play at MDUC this week - I can't wait to see what you come up with to hide in your creations!

I would like to enter some challenges too...

Also - I am still selling some cards on Ebay to raise money for Breast Cancer. 50% off all money will be donated to The National Breast Cancer fund.   There is a link in my sidebar to my store. 

I thought I'd finish up today and show you some photos of our back yard. I just love the trees all in bloom.

I hope you have a great weekend. 
I'll be back tomorrow with something else ;) Until then - Hugs from me x
