Our sponsor for this is Creative Bug Digis, and my card uses the sweet image "Birthday Baking Lesson"

I have used Spellbinders M-Bossabilitese Numbers & Letters and the balloons are from Up Up and Away 

Digi Stamps 4 Joy have a fab new challenge - #72 - Fancy Fold PLUS Handmade Flower. This 
time it is hosted by the lovely Asmah and my card uses the image "Gardening is a Pain"

The image was so much fun to work with and is coloured using Copic markers, the card base is made with Spellbinders Grand Circles. The Rose is made using Sizzix Susan's Garden dies.

Last but by no means least is the great challenge over at Creative Moments this time it is anything but a card, and is sponsored by

Colour Challenge

Happy Monday

Today at the Outlawz it is time for a new Greetings Card Challenge, the theme this week is "Melon Mango Month", go check out the stunning creations by the Design Team.

July 4th is only a few days away; and, since the celebration is all about independence and freedom, we have concocted our own little freedom scenario. This week, we do not have a sponsor, we do not have a guest designer, and we do not have to use RED, WHITE, and BLUE in our designs!  Instead, we have some fun colors that you can use 


My card today uses Justrite Stampers -Vintage Oval Labels 

I stamped the sentiment in SU Tangerine Tango and used Spellbinders M-bossabilities - Whimsy. The lace, flowers and butterfly are all MS punches

I look forward to seeing your entries
