Digi Doodle Challenge - Thursday 29/7/10

I have only recently come across the Digi Doodle Shop and have purchased some images - too may to choose from on their website - so I thought it a good idea to take part in their own challenge.  The topic for the Didi Doodle Challenge this week is "punch or cut me".  I purchased some of their images the other day but fell in love with this lighthouse so of course this had to be the first image to be coloured in.  I have coloured the lighthouse image with my Promarkers and cut the shape out with a Nellie Snellon die.  The next piece of card I cut out with a Nestabilities die but should I let you into a secret what the card is ...................... the packing for the Nellie Snellon die.  The words waste-not, want-not come to mind but I thought the ripply texture replicated waves etc of the sea.  The backing papers are pieces from my stash including some pieces of Crafty Ann's digi papers that are leftover from my challenge cards.  The card is finished off with a die-cut mount given to me by a friend, peel-offs and a Digi Doodle mermaid which I coloured with Promarkers but I highlighted her tail with Glossy Accents.

This card fits the following challenges:

Pear Tree Design - Birthday
Ooh-la-la-Creations - Birthday
Crazy Challenge - Birthday
Crafty Creations - Summer lovin'
Party Time Tuesday - Anything goes
Charisma Cardz - Something with a tail - for my card it is the mermaid who has a tail
Dutch Dare Challenge - Anything goes
One Stop Craft - Patterns - I chose dots
Stamping Vacation - Fountain of Youth - two of my good blogging friends have just been lucky enough to make the Stamping Vacation Design Team - so if you have the time please pop over to the Stamping Vacation and support Corry and Lorraine.  Good luck to you both in your new venture.
