Now I'm Crafting with an Attitude!!

Hahahaha! No I don't mean I'm stroppy when I am crafting, lol.
Not at all.  Let me explain.
You will remember me saying that Through the Purple Haze challenges were closing down don't you, and then this week I told you that we have managed to keep it going?
Well, because I thought it was closing I decided to apply for another DT place.
So as I entered a challenge I noticed they were having a DT call, so thought "Why not?" - sounds like fun and it is a monthly challenge so that was brilliant.
I applied.............. they accepted!! Woooohoooo.
So I can now tell you that................
And what's more they are a lovely bunch of ladies too!
So without further ado, here are the details of the April Challenge.
The Challenge this month is:
And our lovely sponsor for this challenge is:
Buy Sassy Studio Designs
So we had a couple of images to choose from and I went with this one:
Super Mom Sassy
And here is the card I made:
As soon as I saw her I knew what I was going to do with her.
I am really pleased with how it came out too and not colours I would normally go for.
So, the image is coloured with my Copics for a change. Dead chuffed with her hair!
I have Anglicised the label at the top and added
at the bottom! I am sure every Mum knows that feeling eh??
So just a case of adding in some flowers, a little air dry clay bow, coloured with Distress Inks, a doily behind the image, the DP is from a Raspberry Road pad at Lili of the Valley called Shabby Shack and, as the saying goes, Bob's Your Uncle!! (I'm sure I don't have an uncle called Bob but hey ho! Lol).  All the flowers are from my stash and I made the ribbon with my MS Air Dry Clay.
So, I look forward to seeing your entries into what is Crafting with an Attitude's second challenge.
Please come along and join in the fun, and why not join the blog whilst you're there.  That way you won't miss anything will you?
