Anything Goes at Bearly Mine Designs

Good evening everyone

Well yet again I've been missing in action but I've had so much on my plate with work, renovating our garden, my mum & hubby being crook and feel like I've been chasing my tail for weeks.

So this week it is an "Anything Goes" challenge over at Bearly Mine Challenges and with seeing all the entries so far I guess like me everyone love an "Anything Goes" challenge as it leaves your creativity to run a muck.

So our two wonderful sponsors this week are

offering a surprise

offering this lovely Christmas package
So now onto my creation for this challenge, I'm really loving the Steampunk Fantasy pp's at the moment so I've used them on my card. This card was suppose to be completed a couple of weeks ago for my BFF's boyfriends birthday but I just ran out of time so I will now put it away for next year.
I'm not 100% happy with the effect on the edge of the image as I was trying a new technique and it didn't quiet work as I didn't have all the products (which I wasn't aware I needed) so I had to do a quick cover up job as I didn't have time to recolour another image.
The products I've used are
Bearly Mine Designs - Steampunk Fantasy pp's
Kenny K digital stamp
American Crafts cs
SU ink, stamp & die
Spellbinder cog dies
Tim Holtz embossing folder, distress inks, distress embossing powder & metal cog/findings
Making Memories screw brads
Bakers Twine
Clock charm & metal corner flourish
Unfortunately at this point in time I don't have a list or photo of the copics I've used as I'm always in a rush and end up not having time to do either.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
Kenny's Kraft Crew - Anything Goes
The Crafting Café - Anything Goes
Through the Craftroom Door - Anything Goes
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
So that's it for me right now, I will be back tomorrow with another post.
Have a great night everyone, and if you are somewhere tomorrow where it is going to be hot and windy in Australia please take extreme care as there is also a fire ban from midnight night.
Nighty Nite

Well it's time for me to head off to bed as Daylight savings is starting tonight so even though it's only 8.30 I need to think along the lines of 9.30 so I don't loose out on an hours sleep before work tomorrow.
To all you Aussie's out there I hope you all have a great long weekend for those of you who aren't working. Thankfully for me I will only be working 1 day out of the 3, so 2 days off, 1 on and then another day off. Woo Hoo
Nighty Nite all
