Late Winners Post

Hi my name is Susan and I have recently had some anesthetic...... well, that's my excuse anyway for forgetting to even write this post let alone schedule it! Sorry it is so late!

This post is to announce the winner for August's challenge

 A Significant Birthday!
TWIST: use/create a shaped CARD

We were sponsored for August by the wonderful

Regal Craft
and the prize was
$15.00 voucher to be spent in their on-line store!

The winner of this prize is:

This is a book card - you really should visit the blog and check it out! Love the decoupage too!

Congratulations Clair! I will be in contact with details to collect the prize!

Now, we also have a DT favourite to announce and again the standard was so high it was too difficult to pick only one, so this month there are two! No prize - just honour and glory I am afraid, but I will email through ladies the badge to display if you choose to show blogland your efforts were appreciated!

Love that art deco look


Bet her daughter loved this!

Congratulations to you both! We hope you will be back soon for our next challenge - talking of which, what is the September challenge?

Challenge#39: Be Funny

and the TWIST is

to "frame it"

 Sponsored by Susan (me) and the Wood Fellow (hubby!)
The prize is this Spellbinders diecut set

Now I made this card for inspiration, thinking it was quietly amusing, and printed the sentiment off using the computer. I am not happy with it - betcha you could do far better!

I love a good bath - probably why I have a few wrinkles!

I hand drew my bath and occupant, and then paper pieced the bath itself

I wet embossed a line across the bath with SU EP Pool Party, and added a few water splashes as well, using a Versa Mark pen. I glued down some cotton wool for steam over my occupant - to be discreet!

When complete, it looked like it needed something else........

......so I chopped the top off, and created a tag using the SU tag punch.......

.....I thought it could be attached to a gift box of bath salts!

Now, your turn to be amusing!
Enter your piece 

This may explain the anesthetic!
