DU2DS #8 and Sketch Saturday #52

The Dare You To Digi Stamp challenge this week was to create a boy card. I really thought this image from Squigglefly was just fun for a boy card. It was a blast to make anyway :). The design is inspired by the Sketch Saturday #52. I love using the bright colors for cards for boys.

Comfort Afghan

This is being mailed tomorrow to a very special lady. Aren't the squares the donors send just beautiful! I am in awe every time I open and envelope.

Comfort Afghan

This comfort afghan is being sent to a young lady that has broken her leg in two places. I think it turned out very pretty with the different squares from the donors. I hope she enjoys it.

Just Because!!

This card was a complete BLAST to make. I wanted to participate in the challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. The challenge is to make a card that represents me and my "style". I LOVE fairies and I LOVE stamps and I LOVE new things. So I figured inking up my brand new Victoria Case Hearts & Hugs stamp called Just Because would be about perfect :). I just love her and could hardly wait to play when she arrived. As for my "style" I don't know that I truly have one. People say I do and it would make sense, but honestly I don't see what it is. I just make things I like and I like this.

The other part of the challenge is to name the exclusive image they have available. I had absolutely no problem as she told me her name is Anne :).

DU2DS Challenge 7 & Dustin Pike

This card is for a combination of two different challenges. First the lilac and lemon from DU2DS . It is also for the challenge Dustin Pike has on his blog and it includes some YUMMY blog candy. I am so excited to see another challenge that includes sending cards to Post Pals. I was introduced to Post Pals from the last DU2DS challenge and I think they are just FABULOUS! I am mailing this card to Rhianna J. Her page says she likes pink and purple. Since there is definitely some purple here, it seems perfect :)

Paper Makeup Challenge

This is for one of the new release challenges at Paper Makeup. The challenge was to use the colors soft blue, black, white and gray (optional). I knew the minute I saw the challenge that Jack Fairy would be the perfect stamp to use for it!

Cool Cat

This stamp is from Pink Cat Studios and it makes me giggle every time I see it. I recently got it from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design -BEST SERVICE EVER!!!- and have been playing with it. I just love the BLING I get with my Spica pens (also available from Susana!). They are easy to use and work GREAT!

Lily in Purple

I had so much fun with the Enchanted Lily in blues that I wanted to do another in purple! I used some of the paper a friend in Japan sent me in addition to the new Smooch. She certainly is a fun image to play with!

Enchanted Lily

This is Lily from Pink Cat Studios. I have had my eye on her for some time :). I made this card for a challenge on PCP with Susana's Custom Art & Card Design. It is a sketch and monochromatic challenge.

Dare you to Digi Stamp - challenge 6

The week the challenge is stitching and gingham. I was originally a bit stumped because I do not have any gingham paper. I know, I know, as someone who has been scrapbooking for over 11 years I should have some in my stash. That said, I don't. It then dawned on my that I DO have lots of gingham ribbon! So here we are. The image is by BeccaKay and I think she is just as sweet as can be.

The other challenge this week was to actually mail out the created card and to send to a child sponsored by Post Pals in the UK. This is a FABULOUS thing and I am very excited to learn about the organization. What a wonderful thing-I would encourage ALL of you to check it out and send a card if possible.

I am sending this one to Samara M. She says she likes glitter and sparkles (so do I Samara!) so hopefully she will enjoy the card!

Comfort at the loss of a Father

This is being sent to a friend of a friend. I am very, very honored to have assembled this. It is being sent as comfort due to the loss of her Father. The timing was close to the time of year my own Father died and I can imagine her pain. I want her to know that others do care and want her to feel some comfort at this time and always.

This week's challenge at Dare you to Digi Stamp is a sketch. Here is my take on the sketch using a Victoria Case image.
This was a really fun one to color! I could not resist adding the freckles, LOL!
