I hope you are all as excited as I am about our new challenge.  To make it nice and easy for the first challenge we are having an "Anything Goes" so I hope you will all hop over and link up your card.  

We have 10 DT members 5 from the Creative Cowgirl Challenge and 5 new members and if you click here you can go the the page where all their blogs are listed. If you have time, sit with a coffee and explore the fantastic work they do.

This challenge we were given a fantastic image to use by our Sponsor

My image is called 'Hot Date' and I loved colouring this image in.
I printed the Fresh Brewed Design image, sentiment and background (from the Daisytrail digikit Modern Lace) using my Craftartist software (told you I love this software).  I then coloured the image with my copics.  I tried my best to use shading and I think it worked really well I love the way the greys have blended and the shaping I got on the bodice of the red dress (I hope the designer doesn't mind her image having boobs).  I designed this card with the intention of it being flat so it would be cheap to post and then forgot and put dewdrops on the corners.  I may take these off and swap for card candy which would be flatter.

I will be posting more now I have some incentive to craft, I have already made quite a few cards for a car boot sale my daughters Musical Group is having and I have already coloured the image for the next Crafting when we can challenge.  My OH has thrown out a load of stuff he didn't need and cleared me some space in the bedroom so I can have my Craftrobo and Big Shot out so I don't have to keep reaching on top of the bookcase to    get them down.  

Hopefully by the time you are reading this we will be at the cinema watching 'monkeys in trousers' for some reason my kids really want to see 'Rising of the Planet of the Apes'.
