Winner, Winner - Chicken Dinner!

I have a  little bit of housekeeping to do on my blog, so I thought I'd try to get caught up a little.  First of all we have a winner! Woo Hoo!  I entered a From the Heart sketch challenge back in late February and guess what? I was selected as a Top 3 pick chosen by the Design Team! That really made my day! Here is my card that did it for me!

and secondly I entered the Bugaboo March Color Challenge and low and behold I was selected as a top winner - I won 10 digi stamps! Woot Woot! 
Here is the crazy card that the Bugaboo team selected.
Really, it doesn't take much to excite me but it really made my day! 
Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Little Red Wagon Challenge #386

Hi Everyone!
This month is going crazy fast! We are ready for another challenge here at Little Red Wagon.  This week our hostess is Kate and the theme of this challenge is 'It's clear to Me.'  She wants us to use a window or a transparency on our creation.  I was trying to kill 2 birds with one stone, because I just don't know where time goes!
This is my take that I made for my grandsons for St. Patrick's Day.  They loved the little prizes, but really they just loved the chocolate! And I love that I could use this little project for the challenge and their little St Pat's prize!
Here are the supplies I used for this project ~
Silhouette window box cut file
DigiStamp Boutique Jolly St Pat's digi stamp
Copic Markers
Round Circle & Horseshoe punch
Gold glitter paper & scrap of 12x12 patterned paper
Yellow ribbon & Gold Stickles
And Chocolate - of course!

The Paper Players Challenge #334

Hi Everyone!
I have been busy in my crafty room.  My hubby needed several cards for his coworkers.  Unfortunately he needed a sympathy card as well.  I had this pretty paper in my crafty stash and it happens to be double sided.   The patterned floral paper is on the one side and the inset with the solid yellow is on the flip side of that paper.  Paper coordination mission - accomplished!  I used a round scalloped die and a butterfly die with the black paper.  I dressed it up with some sequins as well.  The inside sentiment reads, With Sympathy.  I was pleased with the outcome of this card and made up several of them. 
I am entering this card into The Paper Players challenge Cut it Out! All you need to do for this challenge is to use an element that is either a die cut, punch, or scissors! 


Thanks for looking!  I love your comments!

Little Red Wagon Challenge #384

Hi there Everyone!
We have a new challenge this week.  Donna is our hostess for and her challenge is Plaids & Polka Dots.  Donna wants us to incorporate a plaid & a polka pattern in our creation.  Here is my card using a Tiddly Inks digi stamp.  I just love this scruffy little guy!  I used a C.C. Design stamp on the inside that reads - Heartfelt Thanks.  Well I goofed and had 2 small ink spots on either side of the stamp.  I tried to erase or rub it off, but it didn't work.  So I fixed that!  I stamped red hearts on each side of the sentiment.  Ta Da!
Head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the other girlfriends have created.  I can't wait to see all those plaids & polka dots, cuz I love plaids & pokie dots!
 
Here are the supplies I used to create this card -
Tiddly Inks Set of Kitties digi stamp
