Gotta Wear Shades - DCM Challenge

This Fridays Challenge on Daring Cardmakers is to make a bright card. Sometimes when I decide on colour collections on my CDs I choose colours that work well together but they can be a bit bright! Alot of the time those collections go the distance but sometimes they don't! This colour collection is an example from my last craft CD Now that's Funky. I enjoyed making this card even though it is pretty simple in design. I used three matching papers from the Lollipop collection from Now thats Funky CD and ran the squares through a swiss dots embossing folder to give them a bit of texture. The stamp is a pretty old one of mine but one of my favourites as I love cats and these ones are really cheeky !!

Yesterday I was really pleased with myself as I happened across a Wii Fit that hadn't sold out..well not until I bought the last one anyway! Last night Ian and I set it up and I was mortified to see my little mini me person grow to the size of an elephant once I had been weighted and measured!! But that will just inspire me to get on and use it more often..oh and stop eating sweeties whilst I design papers sat infront of my PC all day!! This morning I did 30 mins of Step Aerobics and took two short jogs with my little mini me running pal. I had to have a bit of sit down afterwards..but I resisted a biscuit with my cup of tea !!

  13. Great card Anice :0) I am still hooked on your Now thats funky, so far it is my favourite cdrom (next to artylicous) I haven't found a single paper that I can't use and they go so well with all of my stamps.
    Congrats on finding a wii fit board, me and hubby have been after one since we first heard about them but they quickly sold out in Chesterfield, we ended up buying family trainer for the kids instead :0)
