DT CARD Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #89 and a DT CALL


Hiya, what glorious sunshine we're having here in East Yorkshire at the moment - I might get my little craft bag ready and make some cards/colour some images out in the garden - work on me tan rofl (I stay white regardless of time in the sun lol).  Well Ethan's over his shingles, or "shangles" as he kept calling it, and is now back on form bouncing off the walls lol.  Pete's home at the moment and I'm looking forward to a lovely dinner on Sunday as he's offered to cook - whoo hooo!!!


The weekend is upon us and I'll be spending half of it in bed as I'm on nights tonight and Sunday.  I have plenty of days off next week though so can't complain!!

**************************

Weekend means its time for another challenge over at the Secret Crafter.  Huge thankyou to everyone who took part in last weeks Wedding/Anniversary challenge.  We saw some really stunning creations - you guys pulled out all the stops and were amazing - there's gonna be some very happy couples out there!!

We have a DT call out at the moment which is being extended for one more week whilst we look through the applications.  If you would like to be considered then please check out the challenge blog HERE for details.


This week it's the turn of my lovely teamie Victoria to set the challenge.  Given that Wimbledon is nearly upon us, this week we would like is....

"STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM"

You can interpret this as having strawberries on you papers or image OR you can consider it a colour challenge - it's up to you, how kind of us is that lol.

Here's what I came up with.........  



RECIPE

Stamped Image - Cuddly Buddly
Papers - DCWV
Colouring Medium - Copics and Watercolour Pencils (Secret Crafter Shop)
Glitter - Glamour Dust - Secret Crafter
Ribbon - Stash
DieCut - Nellie Snellen
Card Candy
Anita's 3D Dimensional Glaze  

This is your last chance to be entered into the draw for this months giveaway of crafty goodies, from the Aladdin's Cave that is the Secret Crafter Shop.   So, what are you waiting for?  I do hope you can join us and am so looking forward to seeing what you create.

Thanks for stopping by, please don't be shy - if I know you've visited I can swing by your blog and check out your makes.

Take care and happy crafting.
