QKR Stampede Challenge #98

Happy Friday folks.  Welcome to another challenge at QKR Stampede.  Last week's vacation challenge was a fun one.  This week we are going "SWIMMING".  We want to see those swimming, diving, surfing cards.

I used one of my most favorite animals to make my card this week.

I love frogs and this little "Bikini Frog" (Digi #8204) was just too irresistible.  She looks pretty cute in that little bikini.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope y'all have a wonderful day and God bless.

Digital Stamps 4 Joy Challenge #97

Good Morning friends.  Today we have a new challenge starting at Digital Stamps 4 Joy.  This week is going to be a stretch for many of you.  Our theme is BLACK AND WHITE (grey and skin tones allowed). Most of us like color so it's hard to do something plain.  

Our challenge runs from today until Tuesday, August 5th. We would prefer you to use a DS4J image, but it's not mandatory.  If you want to be in the running for the DT Choice prize though, you must use a DS4J image.

I used Misteri-Bride by Jen Leeflang to make my card. If you haven't seen the Misteri collection, please head over to the Shop and check it out along with the other beautiful images there.

I did add a bit of pink to my card because I am using it for a wedding I'm going to on Friday and the colors are pink and black.  I love this cute image.  Adding some flourishes and flowers finished off the card.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope y'all have a great day and will think about joining our challenge. God bless!

MFP's Simple Salutations Challenge #107

Thank you for joining me today for MFP's Simple Salutations new challenge.  I actually was able to get the challenge live this morning with no issues.  Yeah me!  Adding the inLinkz is a bit tricky, but I think I finally have the hang of it.

Our challenge this week is to use YOUR 2 FAVORITE COLORS.  I chose Pink and Green.

This card is a bit different for me.  I usually don't add things that hang over the edges, but I wanted to do something a bit different. I used the paper dolls stamps to create this card and they can be found in the  Store

We are offering this stamp set as the prize for this week:


Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope y'all have a wonderful day.  God bless!

Clear It Out Challenge #37

Good Morning.  Thanks for joining me for our new challenge at Clear It Out.  Everywhere I look there is a Christmas in July challenge.  We decided to join in. This week we want to see those Christmas cards.  We want you to add GLITTER to  your card too.  So, pull out the glue and let's get sparkly.

Our sponsor this week is:


I used BB Kakes's Steampunk 3 pc set to make my card.  I love her expression.  I used my Sakura glitter pens and metallic markers to color this image.  Those red balls that I added, I have no idea where I got them or what they even are, but they work great for Holly Berries, don't they?

MFP's Sketch with a Twist Challenge #108

Good Morning.  We have a new challenge live at MFP's SWAT this morning.  

Here's the sketch that we are using this week:
                                                
The twist for this week: Use at least one piece of chipboard on your card.

And the prize that is up for grabs?

                                                     


I used two pieces of chipboard that I had in my stash. I usually don't use chipboard, but I like the way this one turned out.  The image is one of the new July stamp sets called Roses and can be found in the MFP store.

Thank you for joining me today.  I hope y'all enjoyed seeing my card and will think about joining us for this fun challenge.
