Some more Lime Tart goodness for you today....but first I need to make a confession. When I went to the Lime Tart site last week with the intention of getting a kit, I found it very difficult to decide which one I wanted...the Half Tart, the Full Tart, or the A La Tart. Then I discovered that I could be a Greedy Tart :) By ordering all three kits I got a 15% discount, and who doesn't love a bargain???? Today's offering uses mostly stuff from the October Full Tart:I did use SU! Pink Passion CS for the base and the ribbon is Old Olive. The Primas are *Playmate - Spring*, but the rest comes from the Full Tart. There's Bo Bunny "My Darling Bella" DP, KI Hula Envy lace cardstock {seriously delicious}, American Crafts pink Thickers and Clear Daisy Dew Droplets {which I coloured pink with a Copic Marker - you can always get whatever colour you like that way}.

This card is really much cuter in real life! I just love that lace CS and will be trying to find out where I can get it in other colours now :) I'm totally hopeless! I actually made another card as well yesterday afternoon but it's with some of the bargain stuff I got from Anna's Craft Cupboard, so I'll wait til tomorrow to show you that.

After my little card making frenzy - the card here only took about 15 mins! - I sat and watched the 4 part miniseries from the UK called "Lost in Austen". Have you seen it? If not and you like Jane Austen novels and are NOT a literary purist, then I would thoroughly recommend it. It was laugh out loud funny and a real tribute to Jane Austen IMO.

Right, back to the grind, lunch break is over and it's time to do some work. Have an awesome day and I'll *see* you all tomorrow.

Oh, I am so jealous! I love getting new stuff. I'm a little bored with my current stuff; don't I sound spoiled?

I can't believe you made this gorgeous card in 15 minutes. Pass some of that mojo across the world to me, would you? Thanks :)

WOW. Thanks for sending me this fab card. Love it. It's sitting on the dining table so I can see it every time I pass. Very delightful and colourful.
