Deedee’s Digis is sponsoring Sister Act card Challenge that starts today and runs till Oct 16th. The theme is anything goes so come play with us!

Oh I love the colors of Autumn….my house is decorated in them!! So I am loving all the challenges out there right now that let me play with orange, brown, rust, and gold. So I decided to make an autumn card to feature Deedee’s Digis Autumn Blessing Image.

As you can see I combine 2 of the digis in this set, Happy Jacks,  and LOVE how it turned out!! I have a standing order for Beagles and Basset Hound cards so I was soooo happy to see this image and the image she released this passed weekend Yo Ho Ho…you will be seeing that soon. I went with colors that the card challenge at Scrapbook.com required, purple, black, green and orange, and I liked this paper when I put it all together. I really like the larger area the sketch at Mojo Monday called for so I used that sketch as my inspiration.

Here is my last card as the Guest DT member for Deedee’s Digis! What a month it has been! I have so enjoyed working with the stamps but more importantly I have gained a closer relationship to my friend, Deedee. I have enjoyed talking to her about events in her life and mine….I just got promoted at my job!! In all of this God has led me to use my organizational skills to help Deedee with her business by becoming the Sponsorship Coordinator for Deedee’s Digis!  So I get to stay on her team!! It is hard running a business and family all by yourself…so I see it as a win/win for both of us.  I won’t be creating on a regular schedule but you know I will be using these adorable images any chance I get.  Hopefully you will come play with us in some of the challenges Deedee’s Digis sponsors and you will have a chance of winning a $10.00 gift code to the store!! Check out the side bar on Deedee’s blog for upcoming challenges.

A current challenge Deedee’s Digis is sponsoring is Sketch Saturday Challenge #328. You have until Friday to enter the challenge so come over and play with us!! She is also sponsoring Incy Wincy Designs Challenge – ANYTHING GOES!! Do what I did and make one card and enter it in both challenges to double your chance at winning a Gift Code to Deedee’s Digis!

CHALLENGES:

1) Come and Get It Challenge – Use 3 of something. I have 3 stars, 3 pieces of polka dot paper.

2) Crafts 4 Eternity Challenge #194 - My Style. This week we would like you to share projects which show your signature style of crafting. My style is simple with lots of layers. I’m pretty linear in design with not a lot of fluff.

A Blue Butterfly Birthday!

8 Comments

So my neighbor/friend’s birthday was the 11th and I knew she liked the color blue, Disney, nature and flowers. So I designed this card with that in mind….she liked it!!

Dear Friend Birthday

CHALLENGES:

1) September Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Bonus Sketch #6 – original a sketch from Scrapbook Generations

2) Tuesday Throwdown #213 – Butterflies and Bows

3) Love to Create Challenge #133 – Add some lines. Wasn’t a 100% sure what this meant but I figured lines in the paper, the paper in a line, stitching in a line would qualify…if not then let me know and I will withdraw.

Dale the Whale!

4 Comments

Oh my goodness Deedee is the coolest person to be a guest designer for!! She made this stamp just because I requested it!!

DADaleTheWhalePROMO

A friend of mine, Dale, just had open heart surgery a couple weeks ago. His sister, Beverly, is also a friend of mine. A couple years ago she told me what the “sisters” nickname was for Dale when he was little…Dale the Pink Whale with a Purple Tail!! So I thought that would make a cute Get Well card for him. I asked Deedee if she had a whale in her stash and she said she didn’t but drew this up in no time! It was perfect…she even made a pink with purple tail version!! This is the card I made for the “sisters” to give to Dale.

Family who Spouts

Inside: …But not everyone has a Dale the Pink Whale with a Purple Tail! Glad you’re back to spouting off and feeling better.

Dale is ornery and that is probably why he was out of the hospital in less than a week! So this quote that my friend, Stephanie, and I came up with is perfect. The sisters loved it and Dale thought it was pretty cool that it was made just for him. And it was funny because after open heart surgery he has a purple tail from all the bruising!

I let the circles in the patterned paper act as the water so I could keep the card simple to keep the focus on the whale.  I used Sketch Saturday Sketch #326 as my inspiration.

Then to show how fun this digital stamp is I made a generic Get Whale …I mean Get Well card!

Get Whale Soon

Both the cards turned out to be CAS cards which is funny because I usually don’t do that style very well. But I like how these turned out! I used Sketch Saturday Sketch #287 as my inspiration.

CHALLENGES:

1) Sept Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Sketch #3 – original sketch was Sketch Saturday Sketch #287

2) Squirrel and The Fox Challenge #77 – For a Male

3) Digi Sketch Challenge - Get Well – Use the sketch or the theme or both. I used the theme.

4) Sweet Stamps Blog Challenge #187 – Anything Goes
