I finally managed to... out the T slide card. It took me a couple of attempts to get all the measurements right, but I finally sorted it out, and it's real fun.
Make a T slide card was this months challenge over at magnolicious and there is a link to splitcoast stampers but the card dimensions were totally different to what I was trying to do, asnd I was making it so complicated. I was doing daft things like tring to divide all the measurements and then multiply them up and getting in a real muddle. I finally decided to make a mock one so I could work out how to make one using the measurements given, once I did that the rest was easy to recalculate the measurements to fit the card I wanted. Next time I decide to try a new design I'll do this first.

My card, for some strange reason it's pink again, Susie perhaps you were right! It could just be it was the first card I put my hands on in my scrap pile, yes I've decide to try and use my scraps up again. The image is of course magnolia, I love dogs even though we don't have one as a family member at the moment I  grew up with german shepherds ,poodles and heinz 57, and they were all so special.

I tried to keep the card simple due to the design,maybe the next will be more complicted in design, but thisa time just some metalic pink backing and simple roses edged with stickles. On the flap just a peel off for with love. My son says it's a bit girly for me so perhaps there is a girlie girl somewhere inside me after all. Thanks for the fun challenge and chance to learn something new.
