Hello, how are things? Well I hope!
Now you may or may not have noticed a rather fabulous, colourful badge in the sidebar to your right! Well I have some news!! I am here today for what will be a regular Thursday slot for me as I am now a member of the Delightful Challenge DT! Woo hoo!
A couple of months ago, completely out of the blue, I got an email from the wonderful Wendy Hall, aka Louby Loo, inviting me to join this year’s team!! And of course I said YES!!
Super excited to be a part of this amazing team and get to work with Wendy’s fabulous images!
So onto the job in hand and today the new challenge coincides with a brand new release and our theme this week is My Favourite Things (Favourite Embellishment)!
Now the new character that I got to play with is called Birthday Alien Andy and he is available in the shop here.
I think he is totally fab and absolutely perfect for my brother’s birthday. Not because he looks like an alien you understand (well…………) no it’s because he has always been fascinated with UFO’s, conspiracy theories and stuff like that!
I loved colouring in this little green man and had fun with alcohol inks as well as a spritzer to create the planets and ‘starry’ sky. Check out my rocket made from an oval and circle die!!! It didn’t turn out too bad. Well not as bad as the previous 8 attempts anyway!!! J
So what’s my favourite embellie? Apart from my Hopeless Hand drawings you mean! J Well I do love my die-cut flowers but Alien Andy was having none of that, not in deep space anyway, no I had to resort to one of my other all-time faves, which are gems! They make great stars as it turns out!!
