Good morning, here I am, a day later than planned with my DT card for this week's challenge at Crafty Catz.
it's my turn to host and pick the optional twist which is 'Go for Green' in honour of St Patrick's Day and because it's my favourite colour.
The team were given some cute images to use, I chose Tavi
, such a cute little dragon. I made an aperture card using a scalloped die to cut the centre of my dark green card panel, using the same die set in a larger size I cut the green dp, stuck them together and, using foam tape, placed them over the cloud patterned dp.
The little dragon is coloured with markers and fussy cut, I gave him a little cloud to sit on cut from the cloud patterned dp, doesn't show in the photo but it has a lovely sparkle. I added the stamped
sentiment , a die cut swirl for his fiery breath and some bling.
It's been a busy week for me- a last minute trip to London on Wednesday with my lovely daughter to see a hastily booked show- Moulin Rouge- it was brilliant!
Unfortunately we hadn't realised until after the train and theatre tickets were booked that there was a Tube strike so a lot of walking required- hopeless trying to get a taxi and buses were full but we're an intrepid pair and it didn't spoil the day at all- in fact I enjoyed the walk- so much to see enroute and the sun was shining.
I was so tired when we got home, I had an early night and slept for 11 hours but what a lovely day we had.
Yesterday I decided to clean out the toy cupboard in my spare bedroom and turf out the toys that my granddaughters have outgrown so that I could actually close the doors without breaking into a sweat trying to stop everything falling out! which led to me moving onto the wardrobe in there.... why on earth did I keep so many clothes that I even if I could squish myself into them they're not the kind of thing I wear now that I'm retired or too dated!
In the midst of this mayhem my sister and BIL turned up unexpectedly, which was a lovely surprise and the reason this post didn't get done yesterday.
Anyway, there is still plenty of time to enter the challenge- anything goes as always, you don't have to use green if you prefer not. just click here
