Dragonfly Dreams – April

YIKES! It has barely registered that we are already into April. Where the heck did March go???? As such, I am a bit behind with this post ! Our new challenge is up at Dragonfly Dreams and this month we are looking for your spring and/or Easter projects!

Our sponsor this month is SheepSki Designs!

For my card today, I am using the image Strawberry Season

It is a perfect image for spring….the gardens will soon be starting to grow and fresh strawberries are so yummy!

I kept my card fairly simple so that I could highlight the image. I colored first in copics and then cut it out with my circle die. I then added a bit of Wink of Stella to the flowers and the strawberries.

My paper is just some Doodlebug Designs in dots and checks….I love these for backgrounds! I punched out a little heart for my tags and then the sentiment was from my stash. To finish it off, I added a few tiny bling from my stash to give it that little sparkle!

The rest of the DT have some great projects for you to check out on the blog!

2 Crafty Critters

Challenge # 53 is up over on the 2 Crafty Critters blog and this month we are being sponsored by Sheepski Designs!

Something a bit different this month.  We’re partnering with Double Troubleand here’s a bit about their theme which runs from August 1 through August 19.Challenge #90 

Thing 1:  Trouble Maker – says, “Cleo, my purr-ty furbaby, is excited that August 8th is International Cat Day.  She’s “feline” that purr-haps it’s time for us to do something claw-some.  Cleo wants to celebrate all of her fur-ends by creating a project that includes any baby animal, e.g. kitten, puppy, chick, elephant.  She thinks this challenge is a paw-sibility, it’s purr-fect and will be pun for all.” 
You can paws here… OR … use Twisted Sister’s optional twist for an additional chance to our random draw.     


Thing 2:  Double Trouble
says, “Is this fur real? Let’s paws… I think I need a cat-titude adjustment. As long as mew have included a cute or baby animal, do not fur-get to enter your project HERE at 2CraftyCritterCrazies. I’m sure they will also like to see your claw-some projects.”  Don’t paws here but,  check out Cleo’s ‘Mew and Your Paw-some Pet” additional Special Random Draw located after the Design Team’s inspirational projects.  

Thing 3:  Twisted Sister says, “Paw-don me, are you kitten me?  This is hiss-terical!  I am purr-ple with laughter.   Let’s see if mew  can come up with a pun for your baby animal or feel free to use one of ours.  Have some pun with this optional twist.  
And you’re already entering at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies so pop on over to Double Trouble and enter their challenge, too.  If it fits ours, it will fit their theme!  😀

I’m using the SheepSki Designs Image ” Dragons Fly”. I thought it would be fun because I don’t have any dragons!

Ya, you’re not seeing things. That’s some Echo Park and Doodlebug in there. Just when you thought it was gone! I colored the image with my copics and then cut them out and popped them up . I also added some Nuevo drops and some random word stickers I had.

Come play along with us this month. You have until August 25th to enter!

It’s Friday Friday….

Hello peeps! Here it is Friday and I am actually on my way to Edmonton as you read this.  I’m heading up to see one of my all time favorite bands – Matchbox 20 perform live! I am super excited as this is a bucket list concert for me!  I broke my toe last week but I am not letting that stop me! That’s why they made pain meds and air casts!

That being said, it is still a fun day here too as it is a new challenge over at Brown Sugar.  This week’s sponsor is  Sheep Ski Designs, and the winner is going to get 3 digis of the winner’s choice from the store!

This week we have a color inspired challenge for you!  So use these colors to inspire your project this week!

 

Here’s my card using the Summer digi from the store!

I mostly used some papers from the Stampin Up Moonlight DP.  The image is colored with copics and the enamel dots are just from the dollar store.  I used sketch # 311 from Sketch Saturday for this one.

I hope you have a great weekend, and don’t forget to stop by the blog to see the other DT projects and to link up yours!
