The Digi Shack Challenge #20

Hello everyone! I know I've been MIA for a while. We had some electrical issues here that we had to take care of. While that was going on the electricians we hired cut our Road Runner (cable internet) line and we were without the internet!!! Yikes!!! Talk about withdrawals! ;O) So today I am posting the current challenge for The Digi Shack. We have a Color combo for you this time! The colors are: Chocolate Brown, Carmel, Bronze (or something similar) and teal. We would love to see what you've created! Be sure to add your creation to Mr. Linky at TDS's blog. This challenge will change on Thursday. Sorry for the short notice! Here is my card...

Back to School...

Today is the first day of 7th grade for my son, Jacob. He's in a new district, so he doesn't know anyone yet. I have been more worried than he has, but today was it. I wanted him to know I was thinking of him and that we know he'll do great today, so I made him a little card with a Dustin Pike digi image. He grinned really big when I gave it to him this morning. :O)
Thanks for stopping by!

The Digi Shack Challenge is in the BAG!!!

She challenged us to CASE (copy and steal everything) from another flutter by team member's card. Please be sure to tell us in your post who you CASE'd. I CASE'd my lovely team member, Ann! :O) Thanks for the inspiration, girly! Here is her card (first photo) and my card. I had issues with my camera, so the picture isn't the greatest.

The Digi Shack Blog Hop Stop!

Hello everyone! This is the next stop for The Digi Shack's Blog Hop! If you came from Kemi's blog, you're right on track! If not, you might want to start at the beginning (The Digi Shack) so you don't miss out on anything! I have 2 samples of new releases for you today. The first is a super cute pair of shoes...who couldn't use that?

I used Kaiser Crafts DP and some cream cardstock. I printed the image 3 times, once on each color (cream - I added the sentiment to this one, dots, brown). I cut out the sections I wanted from the brown and dotted DP and glued to the cream stock. I distressed the edge with Chocolate ink from CTMH and glued that to my striped DP. I colored the tags on the soles of the shoes with a gold metallic pen and the heel with a copic marker. I added Kaiser pearls to the corner.

The second image I have is for a New Year Celebration. :O)
I used copic markers to color in the image. I matted it on gold mettalic cardstock and adhered those onto the purple DP by DCWV. I added 4 rhinestones in coordinating colors to give a little sparkle to the card. Lastly, I added Liquid Glass (Crystal Effects) to the lenses of the glasses and the champagne bottle. Easy peasy! I hope you enjoyed my samples!

***So here is my question to you...having seen those super cute many pairs of shoes do YOU have? My hubby is appalled by the number of shoes I have and I have even gone through them this summer and weeded some out! MEN! I have 52 pairs. That just a small collection. ;O)***

Answer my question as you pass through and I'll choose 3 of you to receive a free image from The Digi Shack of my choosing.

Now on to the next blog!

Go visit Marilyn at Paper Dreams.

Fly, Flutterby!

Hello all! It's Wednesday and you know what that means! Another Flutter By Wednesday over at Danni's Dreams! This week is an open challenge...all you have to do is use a faerie or butterfly anywhere on your project! I didn't make my card until last night and I have to say, I sat staring at the paper waiting for inspiration to strike. I tried a bajillion different things and this is what I came up with. Not very inspiring, but it's cute enough, I think. ;O)
I hope you enjoy my card this week! Be sure to check out the rest of the design team's creations! Ann, Cassie, Chris, Christine, Danni, Harriet, Heather, Jodi, Kim, Michelle, Nancy, Nicola, Stef & Taylor.
