Crafty Cardmakers #53 Anything Goes

Well finally I got myself a brand spanking new team into place, along with 9 lovely original ladies who stayed to lend me their support and their gorgeous creations, and we are back!

Our Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this time is a nice simple one to ease you all back in ‘Anything Goes’, so that’s any project, any stamp, any creation. So you can let your imagination run wild.

Before I show you mine I would like to introduce you all to the lovely new members of the team. Please visit their blogs and show them some love.











So onto my creation for our relaunch.

CCM 53

I was very fortunate a couple of weeks back to win 3 gorgeous digis from Crafts and Me. This little beauty is called Felicia and I coloured her with a combination of flexmakers and promarkers and her tail is glittered with glamour dust. Her beads are also glittered with MS Glitters. The BP is from my stash, a lovely paisley pattern, and the blue embossed background I made with a paisley pattern embossing folder. Some flowers from my stash, a doily, which I have edged in toning inks to match the colour scheme, and some bling finish it off.

Right about now I am feeling frazzled having had a frantic morning with last minute admin for Crafty Cardmakers, a Mr. Linky that didn’t, a post that wouldn’t and a dog who is for some strange reason is in ClingOn mode, so I could do with relaxing back like Felicia and watching life swim past me!

Anyhow I am entering this into the following challenges before I go off and get myself a very stiff cup of tea….

Card and Scrap - #17 Embossing/Distressing

CES Challenges – #56 Totally Gorjuss/Pretty Girls
