Multi Challenges and more from Demo Day

Hi folks!
Here are more cards from the demo day I had at the Craft Barn last Saturday. For the Cowboy one I followed the sketch from the Sketch and Stash challenge. I thought the Sizzix belt and buckle were just the ticket for my little Cowboy Dan, from the Kadoodle range at The Craft Barn. The black & white paper is available at the shop and the white swirly hearts are made using my Cuttlebug. I have used the Go-Kreate alphabet, Amsterdam, and die cut letters out of funky foam for the sentiment. Cowboy Dan has been coloured in using Derwent coloursoft pencils and glitter.
It's too late to enter this challenge as they have moved on to the next week but I did follow the Cutie Sunday sketch #25. There is some movement on the card as the image is only held onto the card using the ribbon. The papers are DCWV and I have used my Nestabilities to cut the label shapes. My Clown, part of the Kadoodle range, has been coloured in as above and this time I have used the 'London' Go-Kreate alphabet for the sentiment.
These cards would fit in great with the Charisma Cardz Challenge which is to use Black & White and one other colour and also the Cute Card Thursday Challenge which is Valentines creations.
I HAVE BEEN TAGGED!!!!! Jackie over on Pink Diamond Workshop.... thanks Hun!!!

The instructions are,
1. Navigate to where you keep your pictures, select the 6th folder, and the 6th picture in that folder.
2. Post the picture on your blog with an explanation about the picture.
3. Tag 6 others to do the same, and let them know they have been tagged!

And it's a picture of my eldest, Tommy. He was messing around that day and thanks to 'digi' I have about 30 shots of him posing and pulling all kinds of faces. I like this photo of Tom as the colours are quite neutral in it and I could go for any papers to make a scrapbook layout. Needless to say I have less opportunities for snapping Tom messing around in front of the camera now.... I suppose it's just not cool anymore.
I won't pass this tag on anymore as I think it's done the rounds. If you want to take it... be my guest.

Lovely cards, I particularly like the cowboy one , very cute :-)
nice photo of Tommy too :-)

Chris said...

A brilliant photo Sandra! Tommy is a very handsome boy and I don't suppose you'll get many more photo's like this as you say. A shame really but the sign of growing up I suppose. Look forward to seeing a layout using this pic. Chris xxx

Can't believe I didn't mention your bellisimo cards! I love the black, white and pink theme and the funky foam letters, never tried foam, something else you'll have to show me tee hee! Cowboy Dan's glitter suit is very glam if you know what I mean ROFL and I love how you're using your stamp designs for all sorts of occasions, they're so versatile which you need when you spend money on a stamp these days. Fantastic cards Sweetie and I bet everyone had great fun making them at your class. Chris xxx
