Susie’s sassy challenge #12 – DT card

Well it’s finally here – the last ever challenge for Susie’s sassy challenge.  Susie has decided that she needs to cut back on her challenge blogs and unfortunately as this one was the last one she set up it’s had the chop!!  I will be so sad to see it go as I’ve had a whale of a time and the girls on the DT are a fab bunch and a pleasure to work with.  I hope you will be able to join in with us for our final challenge and send us off with a bang :)

Our final challenge for the next two week is ‘me and my pets’, so come on dig out all your animal stamps and digi’s and get to work! 

SSC #12 - pets

Our sponsor this week is Di’s digi downloads and the DT were lucky enough to be given some of her images to work with!  For my card I used ‘Maisy and Kaboodle, reaching for presents’ and coloured it with my promarkers.  I decided as it was the last challenge for us I would try and make something a little different.  After a quick mooch around SCS I thought I’d have a go at making a ‘spring’ card.  Now this is the first time I’ve made one and I have to say I’m quite pleased with how it turned out, although I’ll try and make it a bit bigger next time.  The papers I used are from Inque Boutique and the paper pad is called ‘cabana’.  The flowers were punched out of the papers with my medium and small ek success retro flower punches and the leaves were cut with my L’em punch.  The adhesive glitter dots were from QVC a long time ago and the sentiment is by whiff of joy. 

Please snag my blinkie

The lucky winner of this challenge will win 2 digi images from Di’s digi downloads online store – you’ll be spoiled for choice as she has lots of adorable images to choose from. 

My card also fits in with the following challenges:

Stamptacular challenge – sugar & spice and everything nice

Incy wincy designs challenge – fancy folds

Pollycraft challenge – anything goes

Sophisticat challenge – raining cats and dogs (cat on my image)

Magical crafts challenge – animal antics

Crafty cardmakers challenge – a challenging challenge

I love promarkers challenge – animals

Stampavie and more challenge – use some green on your project

I hope you can find the time to enter our challenge and I look forward to seeing what you create.  Have a brilliant Thursday.  Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Denise fab cad and love the style it klooks really complicated. Just wanted to say thankyou for Andrews card and pressie, it really was a lovely suprise and was quite a shock to him that people were still thinking of him. he says he is going to email you a thankyou but he seems very preoccupied at the moment playing Sims but he loved the card and the kind wishes too, so just in case it takes him a while I thought I'd let you know it arrived safely, and thankyou so much once again. julye
