All Dressed Up Challenge


A brand new challenge blog called All Dressed Up starts today!  Wendy Burns is the sensational artist who draws all the wonderful images and you can check out her Etsy shop HERE.  I guarantee you'll fall completely in love with her unique style and precious images!  I was asked to be a Design Team member on this new challenge blog and just jumped at the chance since I love all her cute images.  Be sure and head on over to our blog and enter the challenge!  You'll be completely amazed at all the wonderful DT members and their awesome creations.  All the rules for the challenge are on the blog but you must use a All Dressed Up image (freebies available on the blog!!!!!).  There's a prize up for grabs too!

When I was told the name of this new challenge was called All Dressed Up and they wanted me to be on the design team, I really had to laugh.  As Jim would tell you - since I retired, being all dressed up to me is changing from shorts or sweats into a pair of jeans!  But, here I am with our first fun challenge of Anything Goes!!!!!  Come on over and play along!

I used a new release image called Daddy's Little Helper by Wendy and it really reminds me of Jim and Rambo.  Usually Jim is covering up the holes that Rambo has dug up in the yard but I'm sure he'd rather be digging for worms so we could go fishing.  I used some autumn papers from My Minds Eye, Kraft, and Pumpkin Pie card stock.  The image is colored with Copics and the sky was sponged in with Tumbled Glass distress ink.

Thanks for stopping by............and head on over to the All Dressed Up challenge blog!!!

Carmen Sheridan said...

Fabulous colour scheme! So nicely put together!

Jessi Fogan said...

That's pretty much my style of dressing up too - pants with a button/zipper, and everyone wants to know why I'm dressed up :)
That image is absolutely precious - gotta go check out the rest! Congrats on your new gig :)

Donna Hanley said...

Darling image, Lynn, and you really turned it into a sweet card. The twine is perfect and I like your dots on the sentiment piece also. Nice sky work.
When I go in the garden to work and I am down on my knees, Daisey's idea of helping me is to continue to give me kisses. She stands their all excited with the tail wagging enough to send her into flight and whining until I stop what I'm doing to get kisses. I guess she thinks that is a big help and she is right. Have a tremendous day.

Monica said...

I agree with you, Lynn, this is a very cute image. I love the papers, twine and kraft and the cool sentiment.
Congrats for being chosen to be on the DP.
Love,
M

Anne Temple said...

Adorable card. Love the colors and your background looks amazing (my clouds never turn out half as good).

NanaConnie said...

Congrats on the new DT, Lynn! How exciting for you. :-D Love this card and I'd say you "dressed it up" with all those patterned papers! Love your choices for those and that sky is incredible. What an adorable image! I'll have to go check out all her digis as soon as I'm moved and settled.

Karen said...

So cute Lynn. Love the image. Congrats on being a member of the design team.

Shelly Schmidt said...

Love this darling card- and I can see Rambo out there digging in the yard. This card is fab! Congrats on the new DT- how lucky they are to have you showcasing their images!!!

MaryH said...

Delightful little boy, so beautifully colored. Many Congratulations on your new assignment. You'll do just great. Had to laugh at your comments about dressing up. If it's gotta be ironed at our house, we don't wear it/don't go/and if you can't wear jeans, shorts, sweats & you ain't near & dear with a wedding/funeral, we send in our regrets. That's all part of 'nother lifetime, and one I don't wish to revisit! TFS your sweet card & a chuckle. Hugs

Bonnie said...

What pretty colors, Lynn! I especially love the paper in the corner of the design piece! And what an adorable image! Beautifully colored and sponged!
