Guest Designer for C.R.A.F.T. Challenge

Hi all, I can't believe I'm doing my first ever post as a Guest Designer, how exciting.  I have over the last few weeks gained some badges, which I shall be trying to sort over the next few days and I have a badge for being guest designer, so I'm sorry it's not up yet.  For my Distressed Clock post I won and also got star of the month for August over at C.R.A.F.T. Challenge Blog.  They work from digis from sponsors, actually they have loads of sponsors and weekly challenges and the DT are awesome.  Now I haven't done many cards lately and certainly not had my promarkers out for awhile so I really enjoyed doing this, but I didn't actually do a card lol!!!!
I would like to enter my creation into the following challenges
Passion for Promarkers Challenge - Lots of legs (6)
OOzak Challenge Blog - Anything Goes
Creative Craft Challenges2 - Anything Goes

The base is old ribbon reels which were painted and heat embossed.
The digi is from Wags 'n' Whiskers (called furry friends) which
were coloured with promarkers.  All the details of what I used
and what promarkers I used at the end of the page :-)



Right I better be off, hope you enjoyed this project, not quite my style but I did enjoy it :-)
Happy Crafting :-)
Hugs Kezzy xxxxx

Hi Kezzy! Well done with your well deserved successes! And many congrats on the GD post. I agree that this is not your usual style of crafting, but I love the originality of where you took these rather whimsical little characters. The cotton reels are such a great idea; I love the way you decorated them and the vivid colours of the animals work really well. It might have been a bit of a new departure but it turned out charming! Julie Ann xxxxx
