Time for a new challenge over at Here Come The Boys.... and the theme is dinosaurs. Now when I first saw the theme I was going to go down the "it's your birthday, you old dinosaur" route, but then I found these cute as can be digis over at Dustin Pikes Doodle Dragon Studios and went "for a little lad" instead :-)
Obviously I've gone for an easel card, I just like them! Crazy 4 Challenges has For a Child's Birthday as its theme this time, so I'm entering there.
The image is seriously good value; it's part of a set called Dino Train, with all these images, and it's on sale at the moment at 50c (which is about 30p if you're in the UK). There are loads more sets and individual images on sale, really worth a looksie (just so you know, I don't have any affilliation with these guys, I just love to share a bargain, lol)
I coloured the image with Copics and drew the tracks in with fineliner, there's no glitter or gloss or bling - and only the image panel is popped up - really the simplest of cards :-) Charisma Cardz has a Clean and Simple challenge, so I'm entering there. Crafty Cardmakers has a No Flowers theme - I'm in there too!!
The fabulous dinosaur paper was part of my 2010 Christmas gift from my son Chris, he got it from Starfish Lane, where he buys just about all my gifts, including Christmas 2011 :-)
The green cardstock has raised dots on it and the orange is from American Crafts.
The die cut flourish and orange circle and tab (oh, I lied, they're glittery!) were in a set I got in the bargain-bin at BigW, I think it's from Die Cuts With a View. The wording is from a sticker sheet and the button is from my stash.
Cards for Men has Boys and Their Toys as its theme, I'm sure this little train qualifies me to enter there :-) Cupcake
Craftroom and Bizzy Becs have Anything Goes... I'm absolutely sure I can enter there, lol.
I'm sorry my photos seem a bit fuzzy, we've bought new furniture for the al fresco area (my hubby's idea, so he's had a win, and it looks really nice so I've had one, lol) and the "spot on the wall" I use to take photos is shaded now... I'll have to adjust :-) I'll pop a pic of my new-look outdoor area up soon, I'm very pleased with it and finally consider it "finished".
Don't forget to pop over to the Here Come The Boys blog and check out the rest of the DT inspiration, some real cuties there! Hope you have a go at the challenge too :-) Until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna
