SDC – welcome the new DT members!


Another day, another SDC!  And very exciting, there are new DT members, and a fair few from the UK.  The challenge was to make a Welcome card, so I did!

Doesn’t look like much at first, but I had been looking for instructions on slider cards and saw a video on YouTube that made it all very clear.  Of course, I had to find a new twist on it so I used Nestabilities and made a shaped slider.  Fun – I’m working on a video slide show but am a bit worried it is perhaps hard to communicate the steps in stills.  We’ll see.

Here is a look at the card as it slides:

And a bit of a close up of the words – watched Who Framed Roger Rabbit? over the holidays and Jessica Rabbit’s line of “I’m not bad…I’m just drawn that way” was very much the inspiration there.  I needed to use this image as it fit the space, but he didn’t look as pleased, or as “welcoming” as I felt he should 🙂

And the UK ladies will appreciate the Congratulations and Celebrations sentiment – you can’t beat Sir Cliff for a bit of schmaltz, can you? LOL!

So congratulations to all the new DT members – can’t wait to see what you make and to a load of fun new challenges to come!

As a sidebar, I am sorry to hear that Milo has left the DT – she was my favourite, so I’ll miss seeing her cards every week or so but will make do with her blog.
