Turquoise Tomboy and new stash

This card is for an order from one of my lovely Facebook crafting friends whom I have met a couple of times at craft fairs. This lady makes fab crocheted items.

The challenge at The Sugar Bowl is another great sketch with an option of turquoise. I've used Chillax from Sugar Nellie. I really love the turquoise Promarkers and Island Lagoon from the Summer limited edition fits beautifully inbetween Turquoise and Marine.I've used these colours on her jeans along with Petrol Blue. The papers are from various pads and I've used some blue ric rac from Crafty Ribbons, Lucy Cromwell sentiment, buttons and raffia. I thought that tying the buttons individually might look a bit messy as I like to tie them with the ends at the top so I stitched them in rows and then stuck them in place. So that leads me nicely into the button challenge at Crafty Catz.

What a fabulous day I had at Ally Pally on Saturday with Lynsey. I took my samples to Jayne at Stamposaurus and thankfully she was delighted with them. Here's a pic of the new stash I bought.

Yes, there are 30 rolls of double sided tape. I must get though about a roll a week and at 50p a roll at the show I just had to stock up. Nowhere in Norwich sells it at anything like that price. You will notice just one cute stamp and a set of cute stamps and sentiments, both from LOTV.

Gorgeous card Marianne.
You certainly made a fantastic job with the turquoise theme (I really struggled with it!) and I know what you mean about buttons and the ends of thread!!

Looks like a mighty fine stash you bought there! Glad you had a fab day out.

Big hugs
