You're one cool cat!

Hi everyone, a quick post before I head to bed to share my DT card for the new challenge at 613 Avenue Create. challenge blog.
The theme is Anything Goes with an Optional Twist : Use more than one fold.
I've cased this card template from a friend who saw it online so not sure of the origins of it. It's a normal top fold card with an extra layer (longer than the actual card) attached to it that has an extra fold to create the panel at the front. I've added an extra photo to show it slightly sideways.
Here is what I created:


Products used - Cardstock from SU
Paper was from my scrap pile but I think was SU as well
Images and sentiments were from a recently purchased stamp set and also a stamp set from SU
Punches - Square and Scalloped Square, Small oval, Large Oval and Scalloped Oval.
Acrylic adhesive hearts
Copic Markers
Memento Tuxedo Black inkpad
D/S tape roller & foam dots

Hope to see you popping over to the challenge blog to check out my teamies creations and to add some of yours.
Thanks for stopping by,
Hugs, Sandy

Hope Your Day Is Amazing

Hi everyone, it's been a while since my fingers touched the keypad and I've managed to blog. The Windows Update destroyed my computers working system and left me with absolutely nothing. I couldn't access the computer at all. My son-in-law spent several days on it and finally found out how to get on and managed to save all my photos and digis and then had to wipe the whole system and start again. So I lost a lot of programmes even my mail. He then tried to install one of the programmes and Microsoft managed to stuff up the computer once again!!!! So after quite a while, I'm now back but using his computer on a semi-permanent loan. A bit disconcerting as all his and my daughters things are on here and mine too. Have to try and work out where to access things and also I'm still missing programmes that I used so not sure how to edit my cards now. Still have to look into that.....
Anyway...a new challenge has started at 613 Avenue Create and now I'm able to once again participate so here is what I created. The theme is Anything Goes with an Optional twist of using Watercolour.

Recipe:
Black card from Kaisercraft
Watercolour cardstock from stash
Tim Holtz Crazy Dog Stamp set
Sentiment from Uniquely Creative stamp set - Mini Brilliant Sentiments
Brushos for background
Tim Holtz Distress inks for colouring dogs
Water Brush
Memento Tuxedo Black inkpad
Black pen

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Dream Valley - Anything Goes

Come along to the challenge blog and add an entry or two. We would love to see your creations.
Check out the DT inspiration cards from my fellow teamies too.
Thanks for stopping by, love to hear what you think, so please leave a comment.

Sandy
