Scooper Duper!

I created this card for the Meljen's Designs Challenge Blog.  This week Anything Goes!  I decided to use another image that I won in the recent blog hop.  This one is called Double Scoop and is available at Whimsy Stamps.  I love Meljen's Designs images and was excited to win 4 of them in the blog hop.  This is the only one I haven't used yet and I thought this challenge was the perfect time to do so.

Card measures 4.25" x 5.75"
Stamp: Double Scoop by Meljen's Designs
Cardstock: Stampin' Up Baja Breeze & So Saffron
Sentiment: Fabric label from my stash
Ribbon from my stash

Thanks for looking!

Welcome Baby

Meljen's Designs is sponsoring the challenge at Paper Sundaes this week.  Their challenge is For Someone Little.  I love this image called Monkey Toes by Meljen's Designs.  A co-worker is expecting, so I thought I would use this challenge to get a head start on the baby shower!  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up. 

At Wee Memories, the challenge this weeks is sponsored by Scor-Pal and the theme is Celebrate Good Times.  I am entering this card in their challenge as well.

Fall Tag

The challenge this week at Meljen's Designs Challenge Blog is Tags.  I can't get enough of fall right now, so I created this fall tag.  I used the Meljen's Designs digi stamp Country Pumpkins and the Happy Fall is a freebie that is offered on the website.  I colored everything using alcohol markers and created dimension by using foam.

Here are a couple of close up pictures of the layers.

Meljen's Designs is also sponsoring the challenge at The Shabby Tea Room.  Their challenge is titled Chocolate Covered Autumn and has a delicious inspiration picture.  My tag fits their challenge so I am entering it there as well. 

I hope you like it!  Thanks for looking.

Got Ribbon?

I created this card for the DeNami Design Product Challenge #4: Ribbon.

I used the Pumpkin Patch Border from DeNami Designs and cut out the pumpkins.  I glued 2 of the pumpkins onto a button for a little dimension, but you can't really tell that in the picture.  The card only measures 3.5 x 4.25.  Because of the size of the pumpkins, a smaller card worked better.  Thanks for looking.

Halloweeny Card

This week's challenge at the Meljen's Designs Challenge Blog is Halloweeny.  There have been some really cute Halloween releases in the last few weeks.  This is my card for the challenge:

The background halloween paper is a digital paper that I found on  I created the Boo background in Microsoft word with a freebie digi stamp from Meljen's Designs called Quilted Boo.  I outlined the "boo" with Stampin' Up markers and created the dots in Word.  The pumpkin is also a Meljen's Designs digi stamp that I won in a recent blog hop.  His name is Pumpkin Bumpkin.  I absolutely love him!  I colored him using alcohol markers.  Thanks for looking. =)

I discovered the current challenge at the Simon Says Stamp! challenge blog is also Halloween.  I have entered this card for that challenge as well.  I am number 279 on Mr. Linky!!

My card fits the challenge at The Shabby Tea Room and Wee Memories this week also.

Well...I did it.

Because I have had problems with many of the photo hosting sites, I decided to create a blog to make it easier to enter challenges.  I probably won't be posting regularly.  Plus, I thought it would be nice to have a place to display any badges I might collect.  Thanks for stopping by.

I made this card for the Meljen's Design Team and Challenge Blog. They were showcasing Operation Write Home. This card was selected as one of the top 5. I am so excited!
