No White Please

Hello there hope you are enjoying your weekend.  We went to Cartmell Races yesterday with my Daughter, Rowan and her Partner along with her Dad and his partner.  As usual I am hopeless at choosing a winner and lost every race apart from one when I was feeding Rowan and asked my Daughter to go and choose one for me and place the bet.  Well that one won so I ended up breaking even!  Rowan was a delight so good and he kept blowing bubbles and laughing for me, he had me crying with laughter.  I am going to get ready after I have done this post and then I am driving down to London to be with my Son and two Grandsons down there so I am having a gorgeous time with all my Grandchildren this week!

Anyway, enough of my waffle and on to the reason I am here! We have a new challenge at Hobbycutz starting today and this week the theme is No White on Your Card! Oh gosh this threw me into a bit of a panic!  I printed my image out which was very kindly donated by our sponsor this week, Kenny K, and then realised I had printed it on white paper and it was a bit fussy with all the hair to cut out exactly.  So I decided to go all round the image with a pale blue Copic before I cut her out.  Of course the whites of her eyes are white but I didn't see anyway round that unless I made them bloodshot lol.

The image is Hope Improvement available from Kenny K - thank you!  I coloured her with my Copics and the top of her boots are grey not white! All my papers are digital from DDE called Colder Weather.  I made a frame for the image using Cheery Lynn Mini Pearl Square Mega Doily and Spellbinders Square.  The sentiment and matching die are from Whimsy.  I added some Card Candi and some fabulous laser cut gears from the Hobbycutz Shop here.

As I mentioned before we have a fabulous sponsor this week:

Please head over to the challenge and see what the rest of the DT have done for some more inspiration.  We would love to see what you create so get cracking and share your creativity with us!

Thank you so much for looking, take care xx

Sounds like a fun day at the races! Glod thing you were feeding Rowan and so had that chance to break even... lol...

I have never been to the races but think they sound grand. I never win on the machines at the casino's so probably the races would find me with no luck too...teehee

Your card is lovely. Those Kenny images are always sassy! You have done a great job with those beautiful laser cut pieces too.
