DU2DS Anything Goes!

Now that leaves the possibilities open doesn't it. Unfortunately my wonderful memory let me down again and I completely failed to recognise the fact it was thursday so was REALLY last minute with this card. Still the theme gave me the freedom to do just anything with a digi so thats just what I did - produced the fastest card I've ever made!



After stamping the base card with Aspects of Design flower text I ripped up some paper I had already made with Starburst Stains, pulled out a digi of Christine's I had already coloured, over stamped that with a swirl stamp I made on imagepac months ago, set robot crop to cut me a scroll, routed through my butterfly box for the right coloured flutterby added some bits and bob's and hey presto!!.............

And if you think that's how it went .......well how deluded are you?

Frantic scrabbling, many curses, a bin full of rubbish and a desk that looks like a bombs hit it and then the final insult, I saw a card on the easel which I'd made as an invitation for the bridesmaids to come for a second dress fitting which would have just done the job




Oh well! That's the way it goes!

We had some fantastic entries last time on DU2DS, and there seems to be more and more amazing digi's to be had so plenty to have a go with, If you're looking for something new check out Christine's and Sandra's shops - some lovely new images just been added!

See Ya
x Michelle

Hi Michelle - love the story behind these cards. I was really taken in by your description of how quickly and effortlessly you made the first card (I'm easily deluded!!). Working under pressure can often help create a fabulous project, and this one is fabulous! I love the "dress" card too - very elegant and classy.
Hugs, Sylvia xxx

That really made me giggle :) Sounds just like my style of crafting. A desk full of mess and a bin full of rubbish before I get anything remotely acceptable, let alone good, lol. I love the way it turned out, anyway :)
