Who Doesn't Love a SALE...!?!

Yes folks, I'm here with the August Showcase and exciting news of a SALE over at THE CRAFTY PAD!
Instead of new releases this month, Debbie at THE CRAFTY PAD has decided to let the DT loose in the shop, and to create with whatever we wanted to choose!
Now, believe me, it took quite some doing to pick just ONE image to create with, but instead of choosing one of my faves (there really are so many!!) I decided to choose something I've not used before. I chose CANDY FLOSS STAND and created this card:
I coloured the image with promarkers and chose my digi papers to match the same candy-colours. I matted onto black card which I think really makes it 'pop.' The sentiment ticket was a freebie and I added some square gems (coloured with promarkers to match) and some ric rac to finish.

I also decorated the inside to match.

So onto the details! We are offering you a whopping 30% OFF SALE on our favourite TCP images! That's ALL the images the DT have chosen to create with today, so pop over to The Crafty Pad Challenge Blog to see what we've all used, because those are the images in the sale. :)

The sale is on for ONE WEEK ONLY, so hurry, you really don't want to miss out!!

AND...We also have a new challenge this week and would love to see you all playing along; all you have to do is

Show some METAL!
(Check blog for details.)
Remember, if you use a TCP image in your creation you can email Debbie and you'll receive a FREE TCP image of your choice as well!
We will see you all on Thursday for some winners and a Top 5!
Happy Crafting till then!
