It's a for real Anything Goes Challenge #40 over at 613 Avenue Create! You'll find the challenge badge here. I made a separate page for my badges. I like to play in LOTS of challenges. I found when I had these on the sidebar, the page took FOREVER and a DAY to load! I kinda thought about folks who have dial-up because we all know... there could still be people who have only dial-up available to them. I'm of a considerate nature like that. ;) There's no twist this time around! Phew! lol I made the card first and then checked for the twist but I thought I read that it was a true anything goes so here I am!
The thing is... I thought the prize package was from The Paper Shelter (TPS). Come to figure out... as usual... I'm a day late and a dollar short! That challenge was from week BEFORE! :-\ No harm done though! This is an anything goes and the prize package is from Rick St. Dennis (RSD)! Who can but only love his quirky images?!? Me, for one! I was admiring some of his images just recently wishing I could afford to get me some. So I hope I win! lol I doubt it. The winning projects are usually very elaborate. I don't do elaborate. :( But my momma didn't raise no quitter so here I am anyway!
Here is my card:
I did use a TPS image called Miss Halloween. All card stock, printed paper and plastic doodads are from my long-hoarded stash that I've been trying to rid myself of for almost two years now! Well, technically, the 2 year anniversary is in December but that's just a hop, skip and a jump from here AND... it FEELS like two years! lol ;) I colored the image with Copic markers. I also used a Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circles SM die to mat the image. By the way, that SM... I'm thinking means small. I've seen the newer dies that are HUMONGOUS! I added Stickles in Crystal to the flowers and the edge of the mat but not till AFTER I took the picture so you'll have to trust me on that one! The flowers are from Michael's $1 bins.
Now to figure out who to gift it too! I've a heap of Halloween images all colored up and I've spent a couple of days turning these into cards. I do have two I'll be sending to my sisters because they appreciate my cards and I know they get proudly displayed in their homes but the rest... I don't know! Cause so far, I've got about 20 of them! I am not even counting the ones I made last year!
I was feeling super ambitious during the summer. I thought I'd make back to school cards all of September. Well, my CML and the new medication set me straight on that one. Then I thought, I'll post a card every single day during Halloween! Well, my CML and the not so new medication set me straight on that one too! ;) lol
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll leave a comment so I'll know you were here! :)
