Delicious Doodles Challenge

Happy Friday!

Before I move onto today's challenge/creation ... I would like to put a special thanks out to all my new 'followers' who have come to my blog via Feline Playful.  I appreciate you following my blog and I hope you find inspiration from my work!  Thanks also the the ladies over at Feline Playful for all the work they put into providing us with the daily lists of challenges and now this fabulous idea of 'Give a Comment, Receive a Comment'.  If you don't know what I'm talking about ... you need to pop RIGHT OVER!!  Now onto today's challenge creation.
 
Are you ready for another  

Today we are concentrating on  
NEW!  
Try something new, or use something new on your projects.

After much thought, I decided to try a NEW FOLD TECHNIQUE for my DT creation in today's challenge.  My choice of fold is the JOY FOLD.
  
 (My JOY FOLD card 'closed')

I found my inspiration and instruction over on Shelly's Images website.  She supplied very easy easy to follow directions and there's a few other tutorials available on her site also.  Do check them out.
The Delicious Doodles digi image I used today is called "Bark at the Moon" ...  Isn't it cool!!  I simply used chalk and a make-up applicator to do the 'hint' of coloring on the image.  Other than the BASE card, I've used scraps that were laying on my worktable for this creation!  (trying to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak! there's such a mountain of scraps after the holidays! LOL)

 ( My JOY FOLD card 'opened')


Now it's your turn.  We would love to have you join us in this challenge and I'm sure Santa brought you all types of NEW toys that you're just 'compin' at the bit' to use!  Here's your chance!!


This challenge runs until next Friday, January 14th and YOU could win some of these amazing digis from Delicious Doodles!

Other challenges this card qualifies for are:

Woodware USA - Something NEW (technique)
Creative Cottage - Something NEW
Paper Sundaes - Something NEW

Gorgeous card, especially since it is your first. I'm trying out a couple of new designs this week/month, myself. I love the challenges over at Delicious Doodles, and hate that I can't comment on all the DT's individual card, however, I do try to always leave a comment on the challenge site. I love your blog, and look forward to seeing your new creations. I'm also visiting from Feline Playful. Hugs, dj
