Well, I’ve been waiting for the latest freebies to be posted for this month, although it’s not a challenge this month I still try to complete them within a time limit.

Nothing, he must be running a bit late I thought, so I waited.

I follow RSD by newsletter so I don’t miss any posts.

The last newsletter I got said they are now going out to those signed up to his newsletter – not a problem I’m signed up. Reading further, we should have already got the freebies sent to us in an earlier newsletter. Nope, I didn’t get that newsletter, and I check my spam every day so it didn’t go there.

Sooo, I emailed RSD who said there wasn’t a challenge this month (he said nothing about why I hadn’t got the email) and sent a link to the image where I could purchase it in his shop.

For those following SNG & AC blogs will know I’ve had problems before.


Has anyone else had similar problems this month or in previous months? Please feel free to comment/ rant but I can’t guarantee to reply individually. I hope SNG & AC read this and leave a comment too.

My final comment is why treat existing/ potential customers this way?

  • With regard to Pinterest process freebies via the shop so people have to agree terms & conditions.
  • I am a very experienced business woman and understand the balance between offering freebies yet maintaining an income.
  • I buy digis specifically to complete commissioned craft projects.
  • I am left feeling RSD is unreliable and doesn’t value his existing and future customers, as a result he is no longer top of the list when I am looking to buy digis.
  • Maybe this is why I see so few entries to his these challenges where I would actually expect to see more given the digis on offer and it being judged on merit.

I hope the above gets resolved, I am very sad to have missed this opportunity to practice on an RSD image.  I am not sure I will enter October’s challenge (that’s if I get sent the image). However, for anyone following my posts, any other challenges that I enter I will post here along with a few projects I’ve got on the go.

And finally, a very big thank you to someone I know who follows my posts. I can’t always reply straight away to her comments or her blog due to work & family, but thank you Gunnvor Karita of Wings of Whimsy for your encouraging support. XOX

(NB: I speak as I find, I don’t have time to pussyfoot with words, I state facts, observations and how I’m left feeling as a result, but my intention is not to cause offence)


Sadly I missed the last challenge, I had been cooking 3 weeks solid in a south facing kitchen during the heatwave, and ended up with heat stroke.

So when these two cute images popped up, although there is no challenge until October, I decided to have a go anyway.

Thank you to for Torki’s beloved, to for the sand castle I decoupaged and I can’t find the link for  and sea shells I coloured at present so I’ll edit this post later.

I hope you like them.

Airless Chambers Challenge: June 2013

Here is my entry for the above challenge:




I have chosen monochrome colouring throughout. I coloured the skeleton with Spectrum Noirs and hand embossed his eye so it stands out. I added a vintage clock face and scooter. I drew some zoom lines in black and added glitter above each line. I coloured some clear gems black and distressed the card with grey. The text lines are scrolled at each end.

Sparkle & Glitter Challenge: June 2013

Here is my second submission for the above challenge:


Here I have chosen black & white with a touch of colour. I coloured Desdemona with Promarkers, used 3d solution on her gems, and added a touch of red blood to the quill. I added a globe to the background together with a white flower distressed with grey & black. I coloured the flower’s clear gem black. I finished with a quote from the play.


Sparkle & Glitter Challenge: June 2013

Firstly, welcome to my blog.

Here is my first submission for the above challenge:



I chose fiery colours for this card.  I used gold and red metallic card, dropped splodges of ink onto wet card for a fiery background, coloured Desdemona and roses with Promarkers, and used 3d solution on gems and dew drops. Finally I wrapped red lace around the card.
