Make today Beautiful

Hey Everyone......happy Monday to you! 
I've been busy over the past few weeks ......I decided to have a clean out of clutter, hmmm took me longer than I thought! Do you ever get tired of the way your home looks? Well, I've been re-arranging furniture too.....after a few trip to the OP shop, things are looking so much better! 
Time to show you the new challenge at The Shabby Tea Room #258
Create a card/project inspired by the theme


Loved the sun flowers :) I used 'Walk in My Garden' cricut cartridge to cut them.....with lots of black sequins in the center. The paper is a gorgeous Metalic. It has a real shimmer, which does not show up very well in the photo. The black, white and metalic Amber papers are from  Paper Temptress....who is the sponsor for this challenge. 


A gift tag too

I stitched vellum to the tag to create a pocket for gold sequins.

Be sure to have a peek at the beautiful projects the other Shabby girls have created.

On the weekend I up graded my Pc to windows would not believe how long it has taken me to find the photos for this post!! Feeling Frustrated :( Well as you can see I found them, by doing a search, but where they are in my pictures folder....who knows? Guess what I'm off to do. 
Thank you for visiting......Enjoy your week

  3. This is beautiful! I am always learning new things from your creations... love the sequins in the vellum and that cluster of black sequins in the center of the flower... are those just layered on there or do you have them sunken down?... how did you attach them... what's your favorite adhesive for something like that?... anyway.. Gorgeous!

  4. Oh wow, these are stunning, Tracey!! Perfect take on the inspiration photo!! The sunflowers are gorgeous!! I love the vellum, too!! What beautiful projects these are!! Have a great day :)

  5. LOVE (love,love,love) your sunflowers and that little butterfly is so sweet. Wonderful!

  6. Your sun flowers are so pretty! I love to see them rasching up to the skies! Computer issues make me cringe! Hoping you find your photos!

  7. A huge thud resounded throughout the house as I fell off my chair, Tracey! Your sunflower card and tag are just sensational in every way!! Enjoy your day!! Hugs, Darnell

  8. These are so clever tracey! They'd bring sunshine to any day!

  9. Sensational....loooove the for Windows 10. You've just reinforced my idea NOT to upgrade. I'm sure in the long run it will be the WTG....but man! A new operating system? Freaks me out, the thought of it!!!! Hope you DO find your files SOON:):)

  10. Fabulous and card and love the matching tag. Those sunflowers are beautiful! TFS
