Crafty Catz Challenge #339 ~ Anything Goes

Good morning everyone, well I'm probably sat here feeling a bit sorry for myself as I had an operation on my thumb yesterday so it's out of action for a while and it's my right one!  But I will still be around and hope t get back to crafting really quickly but until you can't use your thumb you don't really think about what you actually use it for!  Still enough about me, it's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Catz which is now always Anything Goes and the host picks a theme for the rest of the DT to have a go at but it really isn't necessary for you to use our twist but we love it when you do!  o our host this week is our very own wonderful Christine and she wanted the DT to use ribbon and pearls.  We have a great sponsor this week for you too



PRIZE
Sami Stamps will provide a 12$ gift VOUCHER to the shop at www.samistamp.blogspot.com (that's equal to 3 images of choice) to the winner. 

I have used the cute Birdie in the Palm image from our generous sponsor and I went for quite a simple design this week using mainly blue, white and Kraft cs.  The sentiment and little birthday bird are cut on the Cricut, the image is coloured with a mix of markers and I added some blue ribbon and blue liquid pearls.  Don't forget to check out what the other uber talented ladies have made this week too, you won't be disappointed.
Right just before I link this up to some challenges I'd like to remind you that we are having a Guest Designer call so if you want to come and join a fabulous, fun and relaxed team of ladies just add GDT to your entry and don't forget its Anything Goes.
