Lime Tart sneak peeks

I got my Half Tarte kit in the mail yesterday from Philippa and I'd honestly have to say it's one of the nicest kits I've ever seen. Absolutely beautiful colour combination that I can't wait to use - and I'm NOT just saying that!!LOL.
I'm going to have a play with it as soon as I get off this thing!
Here's the sneak of the 'Half'. And here's a bit of the "Full"

And this is the A La Tarte sneak......

And this is a card I made for our friends wedding coming up in March.

And my take on Anna's sketch for this month using the Basic Grey Boxer paper.

Sorry, not a very exciting post I know but I'm in too much of a hurry to get off this thing and into my Lime Tart - LOL!!

Oooh pretty..........

Check out the Lime Tart gallery - it's full of inspiration! The kits this month are absolutely gorgeous - just so versatile!
I was going to put a photo here of the A La Tarte but blogger isn't playing nice and keeps timing out everytime I try to put a pic up.
Also check out the Darkroom Door sale - 25% off - they have some gorgeous stuff!

FK entry

Ok - just a quick post before I forget. This was my FK Awards for Excellence entry - nothing too exciting but I like them all because they're 'me'. Oh - and funny piece of trivia that NOBODY but me would have noticed. I got my copy of the mag and was lucky enough to get an Award for Excellence in Design for my "New Norcia" LO down below......and also my "Any Given Day" mini-album article was in there too - although pretty funny that they didn't show ANY of the album, only the front cover!LOL
Anyway - onto the funny piece of trivia - see this LO below - "About a Girl". This wasn't wanted for anything in the mag, no upcoming issues or anything BUT there's a 'sneak peek' look at it on the contents page of the mag. How funny that they bothered photographing a LO that wasn't ever going in?? And only I would've noticed as it's got my handwriting on it - LOL!
So I dare you to find that 'sneak peek' and then find that LO in the mag - because it WON'T BE THERE! kinda funny that's all.........

This is the AFE one

This one is called "My princess,(crossed out) my fairy,(crossed out), my Claire" but that kind of needs explaining when you can't see it full-size.

and thanks everyone for the congrats!!
