Time for another DT post from myself. It is time for the new challenge over at Aud Sentiments - a fortnightly challenge blog where you MUST use a sentiment on your card. It is the 7th birthday of the challenge blog and to celebrate we will be having two winners. So our theme this time is to use a Birthday sentiment, or the number 7. We are giving each of the two winners a gift certificate for the on-line store of their choice - so it is a brilliant prize.
I have gone for something a little different this time. As I am in an ATC group in which we are exchanging birthday cards, and I have been in the group for a few years, I decided I wanted to make a special card for each of the ladies birthdays. So my creation for this month was a card for one of the group, with an ATC to match.
For the ATC I used a Popcorn and friends CD_Rom. I added the image onto the patterned paper, printed onto card. I then added soem self-adhesive lace across the top and finally a Papermania sentiment.
The ATC sits nicely inside the apron pocket!
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Calender - April showers/Spring (the colours are sping themed, and the base card looks like a watery floral scene)
OLL #225 Layer it up
Simon Says Wednesday - Happy Birthday
Dragonfly Dreams - Anything Goes
My parrot got the wrong idea when playing whose got your nose. He didn't realise that I hadn't really stolen his beak and it was my thumb between my fingers, and so he tried to steal my nose -
And some growing stuff now. Here are my planters a month on from potting them up:
And finally - at long last - a new audio book review for you lovely people:
Dodger by Terry Pratchett
This book is another fun story, based loosely around Charles Dickens and where he got the ideas from his stories, as well as some other influential men of the time. The main character in the story however is entirely fictional, although taken from Charles Dickens stories to some extent. Dodger finds his whole life changes when he rescues a young lady from a pair of ruffians driving a cart with a very squeaky wheel. Dodger is a ‘tosher’ which means he is considered a lowlife by the upper classes as he makes his fortune in the sewers. However, he soon shows he is more than capable of holding his own with those upper classes and at the same time has to devise a plan to save the lady from those who would wish her harm.
All in all this is a good, fun book to listen to with lots of giggles. I think part of what makes these books good to listen to is the author understands the story and relays is so well.
Thank you for reading my blog,
