Feel Better Soon

Ribbons and Pearls

I have some news to share, Top Tip Tuesday, is closing and this will be our final challenge. Samantha has decided to close TTT after 5 years running. This was my first design team so it will always hold a special place in my heart. I'm fortunate to have made some wonderful friends during my 3 year term and I wish each of these ladies all the best. Samantha, thank you for taking a chance on me 3 years ago and for your love and support throughout the years. You are a treasure! 

With this being the final challenge, Samantha has lined up seven sponsors to shower you with gifts so be sure to visit the challenge blog for all of the details.

When I thought about TTT closing it reminded me of the first DT project I created, a tag for my husband. Since I began with a masculine project I thought it might be nice to end on the same note.  

I altered a Dusty Attic chipboard clock  and sprocket with Adirondack paints-black, gold and silver. Idea-ology gears were added with Glossy Accents and a paper clock from one of Tim's ephemera collections also made it onto my card. The black ribbon trim and Kaisercraft black pearls meet the challenge requirements and paper from two Graphic 45 collections pull it all together. The sentiment is by My Favorite Things and was a monthly freebie some time ago.  

I hope you'll join us for our final challenge and give Top Tip Tuesday a proper goodbye.

This is a fabulous project to end an era Lisa, I love the clock theme and colours used here. It is a sad but I have had the greatest time working alongside both you and the rest of the TTT team, thank you.

Your projects have been an ispiration to me. Your male cards are always so interesting and full of character and this one is no exception. I have had fun working with the TTT team. It has been a memorable few years meeting so many lovely designers and being inspired by their creations. I will be popping by often. Elaine
