ELECTIC ELLAPU CHALLENGE

Hi Everyone,

Well Guys, I have almost lost the will to live...since 7am this morning I have been trying to put this post up....YIKES!!!!!! I have now installed a new Browser Firefox to get me this far...Google Chrome just was not playing at all.....O my goodness I need a lie down...Phewwwwww....

Well today is the start of the challenge over at Electic Ellapu and the theme is use some Texture on your creation... The lovely Elaine blog owner had given us Christmas off so this is the first Challenge at Eclectic Ellapu for 2014....



I made a tag...the texture I created from using a diamond shape mask & (Golden) molding paste which I coloured Red... lots of embossing going on with the doily...and some frantage for the background of the tag... The cute image is from Digital papers...I hope you like it and  you will join in with the challenge...See you there....
Thank you so much for your visit x x x

Hi May - are you still with us? Hope so as it would be a crying shame to lose you at this early hour over a problematical Google Chrome, hope your Firefox has continued to rescue the day!!!
What a lovely friendship tag. I love the red doilly and of course the frantage is spectacular (umm is it ok to ask what frantage actually is? Will I be unfriended in the follower stakes for such a silly question?!)
Have a fun week

I am going to try to be very quiet so my computer won't hear me. I do not get along with this machine at all and am convinced "it" has it in for me. When it is time to post something I break out in a cold sweat and feel as if I will surely swoon. I can sympathize May!
And here it is, a beautiful tag. The first thing that really grabbed me was the beautiful colors and the combination cold not be better! Those little girls are so precious. That is such a sweet little bird too. Smashing May!!

Hugs Kelly
