New Tag for Tuesday and I can finally share my news....

This week over at Try it on Tuesday is Tags. the theme chosen by Yvonne is "One for the Boys" and I can say that it was a hard go this week as I do not own much boy/Man related stuff especially stamps so I wound up using some clear stickers from SRM and Distressing them on a tag. I inked the tag with several distress inks, Distressed the edges and added some crackle. The twine is some scrap from packaging.
Now hop on over to the Try it on Tuesday Challenge blog to check out what my teamies have come up with. You will not be dissappointed.

Now for my news......

A while back I posted a snippet about a contest and a card.....

Here is the card I did with my Paper piecing dogs. This was the top of the card with the 2 dogs coming through some gift wrap.
and here is the 3rd dog on the inside again popping through.....
I had entered this card in the Dawn Bibby Birthday competition last year and it Won!

So....What did I win?

On May 31, My friend and I will get to go to the QVC studio and attend a Craft masterclass with Craft Expert Dawn Bibby. I also get the chance to appear live on the show with Dawn, that is a scary thought, they told me to wear something nice....Hmmmm guess I getter go shopping. It has taken so long to work out the date that I did not want to post about it until I had specifics and now I do. I cannot believe it is almost here....Wow.

Now I must get to bed as I have to work tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful day.
Angela

Fantastic new Angela and well deserved, your paper piecing is a work of art. I can't stop looking at the ones you did for me. I still can't bring myself to stick them on a page. I will be recording QVC on 31st as I am working longer hours to cover for a colleague who is going on holiday. Let us know when you find out what time you are on. :-) xx
