Another Tuesday is upon us and can you believe there are only 5 weeks to Christmas!! Eeek!!! I thought I was gonna be organised this year, but surprise surprise it's not going that way!
I shall have to really get down to business with it - it would be much easier though if I wasn't in pain from my back and the Bells Palsy and if my eye would stop running and make it easier to see!
But, we have a new challenge at the Creative Card Crew and we have a fab new sponsor! Extra kudos to them for stepping up at short notice after our previous sponsor was unable to do the job. And who is this fab new sponsor I hear you all cry.... Only the fabulous Marianne Designs!!
And their fantastic prize for this challenge is this gorgeous stamp and die set!
So to be in with a chance to win this gorgeous prize we've set you a really difficult challenge. Oh yes, we don't make things too easy for you, we know you can step up and take a challenge when we set one. So this fortnight our challenge is...
Ok, maybe we do make things easy for you!! lol! Easy peasy lemon squeezy! So it's gonna be a busy week!
Here's what I did:
I cheated this week cos the challenge just wasn't easy enough and I used a pre-coloured image! It's a digi from The Paper Shelter and is from the Giraffes set. I thought my runny eye would make it difficult to colour so went for the easy option (saying as the option was there!) and in my wisdom decided to 3D it up and printed out a second copy of the image. So it's not cut out brilliantly as it was a little blurry! I also blinged it up with some glamour dust on the dummy/pacifier.
The papers are also digi and are from Summertime Designs from the Easton Papers 1 set. I cut some circles with Spellbinder std lg circle and classic scalloped lg circle dies and I used one of my purchases from the NEC last week - this fab Baby die from our fab sponsors Marianne Designs! I also had to bling it up a bit and added loads of blue Swarovski crystals to it. The other sentiments are computer generated and punched out with a Stampin' Up! punch. The ribbon and flocked brads are from my stash.
And finally the inside compliments the front with a Wild Rose Studio sentiment stamped with Bahama Blue Memento ink.
So go have a look at what the rest of the design team came up with for this fortnight at the Creative Card Crew!
