More Big News!

** I apologise - I forgot to schedule this!**

Morning! How are we all, well my trip to the dentist ended with antibiotics, they are starting to work but still in lots of pain, keeping on with the painkillers and hopeful that only another 24 hours or so till I no longer have to take them! 

Well its been a busy week and I confess that I have got myself behind with all my DT work due to my teeth!  But I do have some more big news to share with you.  While being a vegetable I had a message from the Lovely Carlyann from Sweet and Crafty asking me if I would like to join the DT over at My Mums Craft Shop Challenges - I applied a couple of weeks ago and completely forgot that I had! and so what more could I say - Have you seen the talent over there? I just had to say yes! 

DT Badge

I didn't think that I was going to be able to share the news this week due to my tooth but I managed to put something together to share with you today! Before I share my creation with you let me tell you about this weeks challenge.  

'For The Boys'

Yes - we are looking for your creations for all the boys out there.  Our sponsor this week is the wonderful 

I hope you will pop over to the shop to take a look at what they have to offer! Some lovely stamps over there! Well I suppose I best share my creation.  On the 28th June my amazing husband and I will have been together 8 years! (I'm sure I would get less for murder - only kidding!) I can't believe that 8 years ago we didn't really know each other and here we are married with two amazing little girls (well sometimes!) So I have made him a card - just to jog his memory! 

I have used the beautiful 'A Little bit of Country' from Sarah Kay, the image was coloured with copics; 

E50, E51, E53, E55 E57, and a splash of R20

The Image was cut out using Spellbinders scalloped ovals, they have been sat in my stash for quite a while and never really been used! 

I used Tim Holtz Tea Dye to distress the paper the image is stamped on,  the papers are Prima Sun Kiss 6x6 stack and the mini flourish in the corner is cut using Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork all these are available from My Mums Craft Shop. The flowers are a mix of Wild Orchid Crafts and some I purchased from e-bay a long time ago! 

I just had to sneak a close up of this in - at first it was meant to be a 'trial' to see if I could colour in sepia effect - I was so impressed when it turned out the way it did! I would like to enter this card into the following challenges; 

Crafting for all Seasons- #29 For Men (1st wk)
Desmet Designs -  For the Men and Boys (ends 29th June)
Scrappy Frogs -  Celebrate Men (ends 30th June)

Thank you for stopping by, I hope to see you again soon!  If you get time pop across to the My Mums Craft Shop Challenges and take a peek at the very talented DT creations and hopefully join us with the fab challenge!
