Dumbo - MIM DT

Hello Everyone....

Dumbo here...oop's I mean how are we all today...glad it's Monday then??...I am, as we are into a new week of your gorgeous projects at MAKE IT MONDAY   ...and I do apologise to you all, and my team, if I didnt pull my weight this week... the last 2 days, I had a heck of a time getting on the internet and staying on...had to wait 10 mins with each blog to open, then it was all jittery..staggering...would not scroll, had to wait and wait...but some...first pop....not many, just some.

But...at least I could see the little thumbnail, and if I squinted real hard, I could see your gorgeous cards.

What, with that, and blogger declaring he is going to change the format...well life was just grand this weekend...


This week we are being sponsored by the lovely Mandy of Cupcake Cards and Craft who creates gorgeous digi paper collections and kits! Mandy is offering the lucky random winner 3 downloadable paper collections!







So, here is my card for this week......



HERES,  Dumbo...I knew one of us was....

Was given this image from a lady who begged me to do something with it for her 4 year old, who just watched the DVD, and declared this was THE elephant of all time....there was no sentiment at the time I photographed it, as she was making her own...[well fine, then]...lol...



Coloured with pencils in grey and 3 blues...for the water, and loads of glossy accents, and was so chuffed that the camera picked it up, as it really looks wet!!....Glitter was added too, for the sparkle.



Paper "country basics"...spots, stripes, and checks....cuttlebug fancy corners, and organza ribbon in a grey blue...tied around the check layer...

My favourite..or one that I could see properly was made by #139 Kim   



Yum,Yum, lolliepops...gorgeous colouring on Tilda, and love the lolliepop details...

Well thats me done....keep those cards and paper projects coming, love to come visit...and do hop over and check out my teamies fabulous projects too....

Thanks for popping in...see you tomorrow..

Luv CHRISSYxx

Cute. cute Dumbo! But you are no Dumbo, that's for sure. Just a fantastic artist and wonderful person- that is you! Been playing with the new blogger..no biggie so no worries. Now if only your internet would behave! Very sweet Dumbo.

I'm tripping all over myself with your card Chrissy! I'm not the most graceful bird in the flock as it is, but seeing the adorable Dumbo and running over here to say how MUCH I adore it, was rather embarrassing all together. This is fantastic. I still cry when the mom rocks her baby from the cage. I'm a sap! The water looks AMAZING! As for your POTW...how cool is that! I love that one too.
May the forces of mojo be with you and blogger give you no grief this week.
Hugs to you,
Lisa xx
