DYSU #104 - Turquoise - Guest Designer!

How about cramming everything into the title? Not bad! Thank goodness for Barb, because spending the last few days sick in bed threw off my internal calendar and I CANNOT BELIEVE that I nearly forgot to post something I've been incredibly excited about for weeks!

Me! Guest designing with the DYSU team for their last challenge! I'm honoured & humbled to have been asked to help celebrate this fun challenge - because I have had a blast playing along with them :)

I received this SUPER sweet image from Sweet & Sassy Stamps to play with, and right away knew I wanted to make a winter hello! Here's Kiwi Koala's Cuppa:

Supplies: Kiwi Koala's Cuppa digital image from Sweet & Sassy Stamps; papers from My Mind's Eye;
standard small circle Nesties; Timeless Twine; Sentiment stamp from The Cat's Pajamas; Gray Flannel Memento ink; bells from Michaels; rhinestone strips from Dollarama; coloured with Prismacolor pencils; Mod Podge Dimensional Magic 

I had to glossy up the cup! And, drinking my own morning cup of coffee right now, I kind of wish I had a cup that was half my size to warm me up :)

There are 4 generous sponsors for this last DYSU challenge - which means 4 chances to win some fun crafty prizes! Head on over to the DYSU blog to check out what you can win, and the design team's beautiful projects.
