Karen's Doodles Challenge#80 DT Card

Morning Peeps.  Monday here again.  All I seem to have done these past few weeks is selling my home/the furniture in it, clearing out drawers and buying new furniture for the forthcoming move. It has been an up and down ride but as from last Friday the sale and move are back on.  Our buyer has the money in the bank to buy ours and he is just hoping he will get another buyer to buy his.  More important to him is for his wife  and himself to be near their daughter so she can take care of them as they are in their 80's and she was doing a long trip each time to Skegness from Colchester.  We are of course still on tender hooks in case he changes his mind again!!!  Still hope to exchange on the 23rd and move on the 30th.  Although we have lost a couple of days where the solicitors stopped doing anything.

I will cut the cackle.  Monday means another super Challenge is about to start over at  KAREN'S DOODLES CHALLENGE BLOG .  Our theme this week is "Check it Out!!! (use checks/gingham on your project).

My 6 x 6 DT Card

My image this week is  Backpacking Girl and is one of the super new ones from THE SHOP . The colouring medium is Promarkers and the edges have been distressed with Scattered Straw distress inks.  The sentiment is computer generated.  The image and sentiment have been cut using S4-190 "Labels Four" by Spellbinders. The dp's are 6 x 6 "Brianna Pad" - Brenda Walton - code 624191 by K & Company.  The flower has been cut using a Cuttlebug die "Scribble Flower"

  7. Oh Cathy this is lovely and I have found this quite inspirational, I have some of those shaped cards but have not been too keen on them I am just trying ways to use them I noticed that you rounded the corners of that lovely paper, that is a simple but great idea. The image and design looks superb.
