This month over at the Artist Trading Card club swap 'til you drop our guest designer is Margaret she runs the Dress it up monthly challenge to make a dress for each month of the year.
we got our heads together and came up with a challenge to do a mini dress artist trading card for Junes challenge.
Here are mine and I got carried away doing them....loved the challenge, thanks Margaret x
SORRY ABOUT THE BLURRED PICS BUT HAD TO SCAN THEM AS CAMERA WON'T UPLOAD.
I liked the vintage look and each dress has a little pocket with 'Nice Outfit' stamped on it.
If you want to see more of the club members dress it up artist trading cards OR WOULD LIKE TO JOIN IN THE SWAP then pop onto this post H E R E
THANKS FOR LOOKING

I missed the last 2 weeks of SCD but pleased to say I have made it this week for the 'skinny' challenge which must include a house.
3x5inch canvas...this is my first time creating one and found the size a little awkward to work with but got there in the end, lol

I have been meaning to join in with the 'Dress it up' blog challenge set by Margaret for a number of months now but kept running out of time however this month I did find the time and had great fun...
being taken back a few years designing paper dresses with tabs on for the Bunty comic a doll was printed on the back of the comic each week along with paper outfits I loved dressing her up and designing my own outfits for her.
I have had this gorgeous paper for ages and the lace for about 11years, the ribbon for 4years... made for each other.
Chris over at Bling-kin-eck was staying with me last week and she must have made a dozen pairs of shoes out of paper ...think she was having a shoe fetish going on, LOL
My kitchen looked like a shoe shop and as I had a small amount of the dress paper left she just had to make some likkle shoes to match.

Happy Tea Tuesday one and all,
Here I share a few pictures of my baby cherry tree in blossom I woke yesterday and not a bloom in sight and by lunch time wow, an amazing array of colour.
And if you remember a little while back I share a few pictures of my dining room cupboard I rescued from my daughters garage well it has advanced a little as on Saturday I borrowed my friend Annie's husband Nick who spent many hours sanding away, some parts going down to the bare wood and other area's taking off the varnish to give it a key for the next stage.
He will be back next week to tackle my dining table which matches the unit and was also rescued from the garage.... am I a happy bunny :)))
Thank you sooooooo much Nick I am thrilled with what you have done so far and to everyone reading I will keep you posted on our TT.
And if you would like to know what the rest of the TT girls get up to why not pop over to Kimmies blog and check out the list.

Three rare woolly pigs have arrived at a zoo in Essex as part of a programme to help save the breed from extinction.
"At first sight people think they are sheep," said Denise Cox, education co-ordinator at Tropical Wings in South Woodham Ferrers, Essex. "It is not until they turn around and you see their faces and snouts you realise they are in fact pigs."
Don't you just LOVE them, but no mention of taste or whether they Blah or Oink!!! LOL
