Classic Black & White at Tuesday Taggers



Well my dear friends I am a little late with this posting today, this is the 1st time since the Christmas (school holidays) started that I have overslept, and the kids go back to school tomorrow....must have needed it, Brian was on Night Shift last night, his 1st night back, and I did not sleep very well until he came home a 7am....hate the night shift.....would think after 20 years I would be used to it.......

Anyway onto the business off the day, at Tuesday Taggers, we have "Classic Black and White" to whet your appetite.....this was a pleasure to do, after all the xmas colours.....and my 1st every black and white card....I decided to use my Little Claires peel offs, onto white card and mounted it onto black.....I thought I would use this card for a member off the family, as we have about 10 young adults turning 17 this year (my Jenny being one off them), and we all know that at 17 they are dying to get into driving lessons..... but Jenny's boyfriend had a birthday on New Years Day, and off it went there, with a little bit off extra wording...and he loved it, so did his Mum, who is going to be giving me some orders throughout the year...how cool is that for the start of 2010........We have a Guest DT joining us this week Irene, you must pop over and look over her blog, she is a very talented crafter.   The DT's Sisters have as usual weaved their magic and come up with some brilliant projects....so come on girls....pop over and enter our challenge this week.....also don't forget that I have some Candy for the winner of the Name off my Kitten up the tree.......posted somewhere below.....Much Love Avril xxxxxxx

Great teenager's card Avril. I always do a card card when they get to 17. Unfortunately mine are great nieces and nephews. My excuse is that I've been an aunt since I was 14 lol! Hope you're not up to your oxters in snow down in Edinburgh. I've seen more snow but there is so much ice underneath it will take a lot of shifting and now tonight it started drifting. Living on a very minor road I dread drifting!

Take care

Avril, what a lovely card. I do so love black and white as it looks very sophisticated. My son turned 17 last August and passed his driving test three weeks ago so even though I made him a different style card I know he would have loved something like that.

Thanks for the comment on my Daisy May card. The colour of the Promarker I used for the ladies wedding dress was ivory. I um'd and ah's at leaving it plain white but decided to be adventurous. Hope this helps. Best wishes for 2010.
