You know my avatar?
Well, it's a picture of Dylan, one of my older kitties and this week I've made a Brag Book page to honour him. We're on Challenge 13 already over at OSAAT (One Stitch At A Time) and it's been fantabulous to see so many of you joining in with our challenges. Challenge 13 is to make Anything But A Card. The possibilities are limit-less - you could make an ATC, a 4x4, a scrap page, a gift box, a tag, a mini book, heck, even bake a cake (yum yum)
I made a brag book page using one of my new paper sets, Old Curiosity Shop, which you can find at Stitchy Bear Stamps. Sale prices will be applied to my products very shortly too, so if you're not in a desperate rush you could get it at a bargain price too!
Stef, aka glitterbabe is our lovely sponsor this week and the DT all got to work with her lovely images. You can buy her digi stamps at I Did It Creations, among other places. I chose King Cat, lol, I just love the smug expression on his face, I'm very used to cats looking inordinately pleased with themselves.
So, with King Cat, and a photo of Dylan and Anything But A Card in mind, I went hunting to see what other challenges I could use to inspire me. Here's what I came up with:
Tuesday Taggers - step out of your comfort zone. Hmmmmm, I thought, I've already decided on a digi scrap page, and I'm getting more used to them now, so what can I do to step out of the box a bit? Well, it may not seem like a big leap out of the box, but it is a little step to the side, lol, instead of doing one of my usual 12x12 pages, I went for a brag book 7x5 page format instead, which I don't think I've ever done before because I'm just much more used to big square pages.
Dare You To Digi Stamp - anything goes
Crafty Ann - anything goes
Totally Terrific Thursday - anything goes. This one's a new challenge blog, pop along and see :D
KL Stampin and Scrappin - show our animal friends some love
Paper Cutz - feature a cat or a dog
Cute Card Thursday - Someone Special Again, lol, a pet may not count as a Special Someone in your house, but they do in mine :P
Stampin' Royalty - Family themed. Do pets count as family? They definitely do in this house :D
Creative Card Crew - sketch. I twisted the circle, so the embellishments are on opposite sides, and added i some text, but I added it where the signature is on the sketch, which amused me, lol, I do know the sig wasn't part of the sketch, but I thought I'd use it anyway ;)
My Time To Craft - Too cute.
and Crazy Challenges - Cute and Cuddly
Maybe not the page so much, but Dylan is definitely a cutie in my eyes :D How cute do I think he is? For whatever reason, Dylan decided a long time ago that he doesn't much like the catflap, and prefers to enter and leave the house via one of the doors, which must of course be opened by a co-operative human. Now, however, if he wants to come in, rather than go out (he still goes out on his own legs, what a trooper :P), he sits on the windowledge and waits for me to go and pick him up and carry him inside. Yes, of couse I do it, lol, every time, even when it's cold and raining and I've only got slippers on and he's been rolling in garden clippings and is covered in vegetation. He just purrs so darn much when I pick him up, and snuggles into my neck on the way in, I just can't resist :D
Lol, I think all the Anything Goes challenges are just a chance to spread the Dylan love, and I know I already entered one of them before. If multiple entries aren't allowed, just dis-include one of them, I just couldn't resist sharing Dylan with as many people as possible :P
Thanks for looking, and have a wonderful day!
