Everybody Art - hidden message

Hello everyone :o)

Ooh, isn't it hot?!  Too hot for me really, but I'm not complaining (yet lol), we've had such a loooong winter it makes a nice change to feel the sun.

So, I'm here with my Guest DT card for Everybody Art, where our theme this week is 'hidden message'... eek!

I'm not very imaginative with this sort of thing, at all!  But I needed a card for Pav's step-dad, and I had a fun CD to play with that came with Making Cards magazine.  So I've used one of the dog images from the CD, placing that onto its own 'mini-card', then used a fab digi sentiment from the Large Birthday Sentiments set from Digi Stamp Boutique on the 'inside' and fixing the 'mini-card' onto the card front.  I added a little twill ribbon tab to make it easier to open, and wrapped bakers twine around the card front to keep the image panel closed.  I coated the dog's glasses with Nuvo clear sparkle pen, and added some little buttons from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says Wednesday - animal magic
Back to Basics & Beyond - use a craft CD or kit from a magazine
Crafty Friends - animals
Allsorts Challenge - fancy folds (not sure it qualifies as fancy, but t'is a fold lol)
CD Sunday - anything goes

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Living on the coast has it's benefits as it's been a lovely temperature here, just right.
Fabulous card Lisa! You've interpreted the theme wonderfully. Love the dog on the front and the great sentiment inside. I really like the twill ribbon as the opening tab as it adds to the textured look of the card with the dogs sweater and the buttons. I'm sure your Pav's step dad will love his card. Debra x

Oh, why do I always miss hearing when there's a CD with Making Cards? You've used a fab image from it here and I love the way the message is hidden behind the twine. Thank you for sharing at CD Sundays.

Oooo I bought that magazine too, as you know me, I love dogs ;-) and a perfect card for Pav's step dad too and I'm loving the hidden message too.

I'm not so keen when it's really hot, when I'm in the UK, I much prefer it, when I'm abroad as there is amazing word 'Air Con' ;-),

Luv Sam x
