you'll DIE for this Charisma challenge!

okay folks, i'm LATE, and i'm so sorry to be getting this week's Charisma challenge posted nearly a DAY behind...

there's been a lot going on (as you know, if you've read my last couple of posts), and i went to bed early last night with a nasty migraine (which carried through today). so let's just get to it, shall we?

we want you to use your die-cuts (and trust me when i say that there are THOUSANDS of kinds of die-cuts out there, so this should be a breeze!) in a project - remember your post must link back to Charisma, your project must be new (no backlinking), and you have until next WEDNESDAY NIGHT to play along!

here's my project - sorry for the poor lighting (i may have to get used to that, or have to find a nice desk lamp thingy to make life easier):

and a close-up on the funky speech bubble (kinda fun, right?):

i was lovin' heavily on the felt for this one and played a little with something OTHER than my trusty Prismacolor pencils. this time i dabbed a Qtip on my inkpad and "painted" the inside of the image - gave it a slight hint of texture, which i liked. (i have since "painted" a bunch of other images this way, so watch for those!)

okay, so you wanna know what you can win this week?

first, we have 5 digis of the winner's choice from
the fabby Pink Cat Studio!

then we are giving one winner $10 (Canadian funds)
to spend at Digis With Attitude!

and for a third winner, £5 to spend at WhichCrafts? funky online shop!

so hop to it, crafty friends!

and for the record, i HAD to play along at the following nifty places:
Sketch Saturday (i flipped it, but followed it almost to the TEE!)

and Papertake Weekly's Trio-Tastic challenge (3 little flower clusters on my card)

okay, now that i've FINALLY gotten this posted, i'm off to indulge in a little something sweet, in celebration of my PROMOTION! now i'm REALLY out to find myself a nice little netbook! thanks for all the well-wishes, folks - it may have come in handy! xo
