Its Friday....

again, and its Month 5 week 17 - can't believe that its been 17 weeks since the launch of SCD and I'm so pleased that we had so many people playing last week - it was fantastic! and there has also been a great response to the call for new DT members. There have been some very talented people apply so its going to be a tough decision for us to choose just two! A big Thank You to Pia for being such a great Guest Designer last month - her houses were just gorgeous weren't they?

So, a new month and a new Challenge - the challenge set for September is Moo Card - these little pieces of art measure 2.8cm x 7cm (roughly the size of a microscope slide) and the theme for this week, chosen by Dawn, is "BLACK AND GOLD"

Here is my black and gold moo.....

the background is a white piece of card painted with gold acryllic paint.....I then cut a smaller piece of black card and stamped a hero arts rose stamp with versamark and then embossed it in gold then hi-lighted the leaves and head with glossy accents...three black pearls along the bottom finished off the piece.

Well, its not long now til we take Sian off to Cheltenham - to be honest I'm dreading it! she's ticking off the days, I'm trying to hold onto them!! still before we know it she'll be home for Christmas with a suitcase of dirty clothes!!

Hope that some of you will be tempted to have a go with our Moo challenge this month we have some great themes lined up! Pop on over to SCD and have a look at the other fab creations....
