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!

I am using this week’s sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I used the All Abloom designer paper from Stampin Up as well as the Little Friends stamp set for the sentiment.  I used my sizzix for the flourish and the circles.  I colored the image with my copics and then popped it up with some pop dots.  I hope you like it and don’t forget to head over the the BSC blog to see what the rest of the DT has created for you.  You can’t see it in the picture but I used a bit of Wink of Stella in her hair just for a bit of extra shine.

A fun father’s day card

Happy Wednesday all! Halfway through the week! Woo hoo!  Head on over to Penny’s Paper Crafty today and you will see our new challenge QUICK AND EASY! (my favorite kinda card)

Our sponsor this week is new to me, but I just love!  It’s Dr. Digi’s

Our winner this week is going to get 2 free digis of choice!  I was excited to work with this image because IT IS PRECOLORED!  My coloring skills are sadly lacking so any time I can get the change to use a precolored digi, I am all over it!  This week I am using Weekend Walter! 

There are also b&w digis as well if that is your preference!  So much to choose from.

Here’s my card!

The DP is Stampin Up and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I added three metal brads and this card was done and super quick and easy!

Your turn! Have some fun creating and make sure you show it to us by linking up on the blog!

A coffee lover’s birthday

**if you are looking for the UYS blog hop click here**

 

Happy Friday all! Can you believe we are already into June…the year is 1/2 over already! It just seems to sneak in there!

Ok..so…..another fun challenge over at Brown Sugar Challenges….

our theme this week is CELEBRATIONS!

No doubt there is lots to celebrate in June…weddings, graduations, babies, birthdays…last day of school! woohoo!

 

Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps!  and our winner this week will receive 4 digital stamps! Sweet!

My card this week is for a friend who is a big coffee lover!  I thought it would be fun to make a coffee themed birthday card using JJ Coffee to Go.  I used the image for my card but it also comes with a sentiment as well.

dav

I used some DP scraps that I had been working with for some previous projects and I stamped the cardstock using a couple of Stampin Up stamps (gorgeous grunge & timeless textures).  The sentiment I just printed out on my computer.  I added a few sequins from my stash, a star punch and the hat I stamped from another birthday stamp set (sorry can’t remember the name now!) and cut out.  I colored JJ just with my copics and then die cut her with my favorite CC designs oval die.

I hope you like the card and be sure to stop by the blog so you can see what the other DT ladies have created for you and to play along! Can’t wait to see what you create!
