I Know Something You Don’t Know…

At least that’s what I think she’s saying. I just love the expression on her face, don’t you? 

It’s time for the new challenge over at DDSC this week.  This week the recipe is “Fantasy”. I think it’s a bit of a fantasy to think of a ladybug this large laughing at you.  You can find her here at the Shop.  You don’t have to use an image from DDSC, but if you do, you get two entries for that image.

The flourish and dragonfly are by Cheery Lynn.  (The dragonfly is two pieces; I cut the top out of velum and colored the underside with glitter pens, and the veins black; then I used Glossy Accents on top, which made it  look shiny.)

The papers are DCWV, the flowers by Recollections and the die is Spellbinders.  The buttons are from my stash.   The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.  The colors are a little more intense than they look here.

I’m entering this in the following challenges:

One Stop Craft Challenge – anything but square
Stamps R Us Challenges – anything
Daisy Doodles – anything
The Sisterhood of Crafters – flowers
Die Cuttin’ Diva's – fall colors
Digital Tuesday Challenge – bug
Party Time Tuesdays – anything
The Paper Shelter – anything
My Mum’s Craft Shop Challenges – 1/2/3, 1 – image, 2 dp’s, 3 roses
Hooked On Craft Challenges - things with wings
Totally Gorjuss - anything
Art Impressions Stamps - dots
Craft Us Crazy - autumn colors and/or favorite embellishment
Do You Stack Up - friendly critters 

Don’t forget to stop by and see what the rest of the DT has done.  They are some awesome ladies, and their cards are fantastic.  We all love to hear your comments.

DDSC has a DT call and if you’re interested in working with a great group of ladies check here for more information.

Gorgeous DJ this is one of my fav images. Sorry I am not around a lot but the house move is hectic. Especially when hubby clearing the loft breaks through the ceiling and you are waiting for the insurance assessors! As you know we have sold and waiting to exchange contracts.
