D'arcy's Diaries Open for Business

You may have noticed the D'arcy's Diaries Logo in my side bar, well today is the day folks, the grand opening of the D'arcy's Diaries store, brought to you straight from the pen of the Teddy Bo creator Gayle!



You may have already noticed quite a few of these images about as I know the DT have been having fun playing with them and spreading them around blog land. You may even have seen a couple of the images on cards on my blog a week or two ago, that was a bit of a sneak peek,


but now they are out there in the big wide world for everyone to own, and you won't be sorry, the images are beautiful and such a pleasure to colour, and I'm sure you will come to love D'arcy as much as I do.

I have another card to show you today, made especially for the launch, I hope you like it!

This is D'arcy DD_02 - coloured in Photoshop in my favourite colours turquoise and lilac/purple
Papers - Nitwits - Promises Kit
Sentiment and oval frame - Kay Miller - Hopes and Dreams
Charms, metallic cord and gems - MeiFlower


Now although I have both a big shot and a Grand Calibur (Santa brought it), I actually cut each of the scalloped layers and the frame out by hand, as I didn't have dies in the size I wanted,
so if I never see another scallop ever  again, it won't be too soon!!! LOL!

Check out all the fabulous creations made by the rest of the DT here.
