Redonkulous DT Card #8

Hello lovely people! It is Wednesday again, which means it is Redonkulous DT day! Now, you know how much I love playing with these images, but I'm so chuffed how this one turned out...

I'm not normally great at monochrome, but this one just seemed to fall together so easily. I added a heap of glitter to the bodice and the train, but I'm not sure that you can see it from the picture. I also cut the banner out by hand - think I'm going to do this more often as I really like the effect. 

Creative Card Crew - Black Card Stock
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Hey Girl
Shopping Our Stash - Something New (image and papers)
Craft Your Days Away - Shades of Grey plus 1 other.

Craft Your Passion - Black, White plus 1 other (grey!)
Crafty Catz - Monochromatics.
Sweet Stampin' - Monochromatics.

Thanks for stopping by. It'd be great if you could now skip on over to Kim's blog, our Redonkulous team leader, to see what the other lovely Redonkulous DT-ers have made :o)

Dies to Die For DT Day

Hi all! Well, here I am, a day late for my DT day... a big thanks to Pops for covering for me! Picture the scene..... My card was all made and ready for sharing.....I made myself late for work because I was taking some last minute pictures of it.....I get to work, load up my photo-editor..... reach for my camera..... only to realise I'd left the lead at home! ARGH! Anyway, here I am, a day late, but better late than never, right?!

I really enjoyed making this card. Initially I messed up my colouring on the body. As I'd already coloured her head, I chopped it off (I know, I felt barbaric too!) and stuck it on the body of another Miss Anya in the set. Hey presto, you can't tell the difference :o)

Not only was it a joy to play with Miss Anya again, I got to stroke some American Crafts papers. Did you know that American Craft now do 6x6 pads?! Well they do and Tracy's got 'em - just follow the linkies below. There is only one work for them.... delish.

I have a few challenges that I'd like to enter this card into:

Art Impressions - Photo Inspiration
Digi Doodle - Anything Goes
The Stamp Man - Anything Goes/Summer Colours
Our Craft Lounge - Sunny Days

Anyway, enjoy the sunshine that we've been promised! It's still a bit murky here in Southampton, but there are signs of hope peaking through :o)

Die-ing for a Challenge #6

Gee... the middle of July! Where on earth are the weeks going?! One good thing about the middle of the month, however, is that we get a shiny new challenge over at Die-ing for a Challenge! This time around we have a fab sketch for you created by our lovely Hazel.
It's a bit of a classic, so there will be no excuse for all you CAS lovers not to have a go at this one! Anyway, want to see why I did with it? I have to admit, it is not one of my favourite cards, but I'm going to show it anyway as I believe that my blog should be a place where I share all of my crafting adventures... good and bad! So here we go....

Don't get me wrong, I love the CC Designs image, the pretty Echo Park papers and my beloved Die-Namic stars... I just can't quite get it all to work together! Oh well, you win some, you lose some! :o)

I really hope that you are able to join in our challenge. You have a month to hop on over to the Dies to Die For blog to get stuck in!

Redonkulous DT Card #7

Hello everyone! Don't panic, I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth again. I've just been crazy busy with work and weddings and my birthday and other lovely stuff. All good stuff, but doesn't leave me much time for getting crafty unfortunately.

However, I'm back today with a card I really enjoyed making.... another Redonkulous creation! Oh my, I just love Sheryl's images and this little baby boy is no exception!

One of my friends is having a little boy in a couple of months, so for once, I am super organised with the card! 

Thanks for sticking with me, despite my erratic posting. Please do make sure that you visit the blogs of my Redonkulous Team-Mates for more gorgeousness!
