Exciting News - Part 2

Hi all,
Well, it certainly looks like 2019 is going to be a busy one.
Having recently told you about my fabulous news concerning my new DT post with the fabulous Lee Holland, I can now tell you all about another new DT post, this time with the wonderful ladies at 613 Avenue Create.
This fabulous blog is a monthly Just For Fun challenge blog.
The entries we get for these challenges is nothing short of phenomenal considering there are no prizes on offer.
The fact that there is no prizes is the only downside though as you will always be able to see some fabulous inspiration from my wonderful teammates.
We always choose a Top 3 that have joined in and an extra Top 3 for those that chose to add the Optional Twist.  They can then put a fabulous little badge on their blog for the world to see.

I am one of three new DT members here and I can tell you that we are joining a fantastic, friendly and talented bunch of ladies and I am so proud to be a part of their team.
So without further ado, let me tell you about this month's challenge.
Now, as I said they are Just For Fun and are always Anything Goes.
Now who doesn't like an Anything Goes challenge?
Having said that, there is always an optional twist given and this month the Optional Twist is to 
"Use a Critter" on your creation.

Well, what else could I use this month other than one of Lee Holland's fabulously cute animal images.
I chose to use Cute Monkey. If you want to have a look at Lee's other gorgeous creations then why not pop along to his Etsy store here.

He is coloured primarily with my Prismacolour Pencils and the background is done with Pan Pastels. The background paper is from a Lili of the Valley & NitWit Collection paper pad called Bonnets & Bowties.  Sadly no longer available but superb quality and I use them very sparsely I can tell you. Lol

I have to tell you that when I did the background, I sat and looked at the card and thought, Jeez that looks a mess! But then I got the colourless blender pan out and hey presto it was transformed.

The sentiment is my own, done on the computer, sized, printed and then "coloured" with Pan Pastels to match those used in the image.

So I do hope you like my inspiration and I look forward to seeing what you all submit this month.
Happy Creating!
