Blogger's Challenge #144: Sketch Challenge!

Our challenge this week was to use the sketch below:

I took a few liberties when making my card.  I used buttons instead of the rectangular element and used a stamp instead of the circular element.  Off and running to accomplish some more tasks today!

So sorry I didn't post on time on Friday!  I promise to be better this week! Happy Palm Sunday!

Blogger's Challenge #143: Think Spring!

I chose to do a page in My Digital Studio, Stampin' Up's fairly new papercrafting solution program.  I LOVE scrapbooking this way and there are so many other things you can do with the program.  I watched a webinar last night that taught me how to use it to make a multimedia project, such as a movie using a project.  You can also create calendars, cards, and there's now a download to print little box patterns!  Super cool!

I used the My Sweet Pea download that I purchased recently.  It contains the same designs that you can also get as "real" paper!  (That's another reason I love can coordinate with SU's "real" materials and create a hydrid project; one that is digital and paper combined!)  I also learned a little corner "folding" trick from Caroline Lebel's blog...thanks so much, Caroline!

The picture is of our dog Annie.  Annie was 13 years old when we put her down.  She was a great dog.  In this picture Annie is really happy.  We had gone to the Pembina trail where she didn't need to be on a leash.  She loved her freedom!

Thanks for taking a look and be sure to see how the other players share their spring fever with you!

Blogger's Challenge #142: Happy Birthday!

Welcome to my Blogger's Challenge for this week!  Our challenge was very appropriate as it will be our List Mom, Lisa's birthday on Monday!!!  Happy Birthday, Lisa!!! 

My card today isn't her birthday card, however...I'll save that until after she receives it in the mail. My card today instead was created for my brother and my brother-in-law.  Since these guys never see each other and have birthdays just 5 days apart, they usually get identical cards.  I'm also fairly confident that they don't check out my stamping blog!

I began my card by stamping the medallion with my Whisper White Craft ink onto the Close to Cocoa cardstock and allowed lots of time for that to dry and set.  Then, I inked the medallion with Chocolate Chip ink and slightly offset the image atop the original. The rest of the card is self-explanatory.

Thanks for checking out my blog and please check out the other birthday wishes for Lisa out there!
