Just Swinging By....

Sorry I scared so many of you yesterday with the words, 'washing windows and painting'! I do hope you've all recovered!! Hubby's home, he has a couple of weeks off so that means.... yes... well, you can guess!! (Tidy up!) My house isn't called 'Spiderwebs' coz it's pretty!! There were quite a few dead things living in it when we moved in all those years ago...
Anyway!!! Quickie post just to remind you all Stitchy Bear Store has a 30% sale on throughout July and this weeks challenge over on OSAAT is to use a digi image...easy peasy!! The B Team have done a brilliant job!
So, I've used one of my little Digi images ~ (Only made him last night, not sure if he's keeping that belly button though!) ~along with some download paper's from Pink Petticoat.
Every month I have a little prize for anyone who displays my little Digi Store banner on their sidebar. The prize is to have a little digi of your choice. Last month it was Shell and a did a little digi of Charlie her greyhound. (popover and see what Shell has done with Robbie The Robot!) and this month it was Jackies Crafts, and Jackie said she'd love a hedgehog on a swing. So here he is. He still doesn't have a name, so any ideas???

I've also followed the recipe over on Totally Paper Crafts to use, one image, one ribbon, two papers and three embellishments, and there was another challenge somewhere that was doing the same...but I've forgotten where...anyway, I hope my two flowers and a photo brad will count as the three embellishments. The font I used for the sentiment is called Spidershank and can be downloaded for free HERE. There was a couple more challenges, which I'd like to enter this card into..but of course I've forgotten who and where, so I'm off to find them! Welcome to two new followers! Hi and a big ((WaVe))) to Dorcas who has a fabulous blog, Dorcas Designs and brilliant Tutorials on how to colour with Crayons and baby oil! And Hi to Rhonda and her lovely Blog, Rhonda's Place to Share with loads of cards to give you some inspiration!! That's it for now. WOYWW tomorrow and a new freebie digi... Thank you for stopping by.

  1. Hi Spyder, what a gorgeous card. Love the cute image (I know I say it every week but you are so clever) and your colouring is fab. Unfortunately you are a tad late with your entry as the challenge closed at 9am this morning :) but thanks for sharing it with us at PFP anway. Hugs, Denise x

  2. I don't have a name for him, but he is sooooo cute and I love his belly button!

  3. Hi Spyder!
    I think you did a fantastic job on your digi and card. I would say (personally) lose the belly button , but I admit I'm a little weird as I have a thing about belly buttons. I find them totally queasifying. OKay! Moving on!

    I recently bought a 12 pack of Aqua Promarkers and am finding them extremely hard to use as they rip up the paper, even using WC paper. Any suggestions? I mean, you'l get chunks of fuzzies on your marker tip. So weird. Cos I use other WCs and distress inks with water all the time and this never happens. I just noticed that you use promarkers and thought that before I returned them to the store I would ask. Mind you, they're AQUA promarkers not ordinary promarkers.

  4. Since finding Permanent Promakers, my Aqua Promakers have not seen the light of day!

  5. Great card, that hedge hog is very cute!
