Now here is my card…
The card base is cream colored, then I layered it with pink and black cardstock.

I put vellum over the top of the image to give it more of a soft touch to the card.

Card, Challenge

Bunny Wagon – Di’s Digi Stamps

Hello, all you happy Stampers out there!

I am here today sharing a card for a Challenge at The Outlawz. I am so excited to show you my card/entry.

The challenge that I entered was a progressive challenge.

Not know what a progressive challenge is? That is ok, I will explain.

You enter the challenge and you will either have to purchase your first digi stamp or they will provide you with one. In this case, they provided me with a stamp for free. You use the digi stamp in a creation of your own, such as a card or scrapbook page.

You will then add your photo to your blog (like I am doing here) or to any social media and also to the challenge site (you can find challenge blogs all over the internet and even on Facebook).

After the entry has closed and you have uploaded your image before the close date, they will provide you with another image to use for free! Exciting right?!?!? I love them and getting to see how everyone else used the same image.

The image I was provided with was from Di’s Digi Stamps (https://www.disdigistamps.com/) <== Link to Di’s Digi Stamp store

Sketch Saturday

I have become quite addicted to online challenges as of lately. I am not sure what it is about the challenges but I find them to be super fun. I am not limiting myself to only one or two different challenges, but; when I come across another one I take a go at it (may I suggest you do the same)

So today I am showing you a project that I created for a challenge over at Sketch Saturday.
I took the sketch below for sketch/challenge #442 and ….

created a cover for a mini composition book. I purchased mine at the Dollar Tree РWhere everything is a Dollar!

I think these are such a cute idea and super easy to create. These would make great stocking stuffers, gifts for classmates and teachers, or even for yourself!

Snowflakes and Glitter

I came across a challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays and just from the title I knew I was in! How can a girl pass up a challenge called snowflakes and glitter?!?!? As soon as I read it I knew which set I wanted to use. Here in the South, we have pretty mellow weather and I am feeling pretty confident that Mother Nature will not allow any snow to fall on us anytime soon (if at all, lol). This challenge was just what this girl needed.

I knew I wanted to use the In-Color, Dapper Denim – it just seems to be my go-to winter color. It is a wonderful color and it screams cold to me. I also needed to add in the glimmer paper for that added frost effect!

I added wink of Stella to each of the snowflakes and also as a splatter over the whole card.
