And Now For A New Challenge Blog!....

Morning everyone, and welcome to my new followers......hope you've all managed to get a bit of crafting in this week. I'm still on holiday but I'll be home on Saturday, and raring to go!
Not sure if I mentioned before, but I'm really pleased to say I've been invited onto the design team of a brand new challenge blog 
The very first challenge has started today, and the theme is
Anything Goes
So, lots of opportunity to join in with your creations.
The challenge this month has been kindly sponsored by 

Here is my DT card....hope you like it.

I really like the colours of this card but they're much brighter 'in the flesh' so to speak ....I started with a square of white card, and coloured with Pan Pastels before stamping with the Little Claire Design owl family stamp.
I ran the card through my Bigshot with a leafy 'mask' and added the branch and leaves for a bit of interest. The topper was mounted onto a black card base.
I tried removing some of the colour on the owls with bleach, but need to keep practicing that technique I think :( 
Anyway, I like the effect so that's all that matters.
Catch you all in a couple of days
I'm entering this card into the 'Anything Goes' challenge at
Totally Gorjuss

    Only problem I just cant seem to get the link between Twinchies and me to work. You may have read on some of my posts that I am a bit of a "Numpty" when it comes to the computer.
