Christmas in May

Hello all!  I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  We had some nice, but hot, weather here today.  So it's time for another challenge over at the Color Me Creative Copic Challenge Group.  I'll admit that this one had me a bit worried, but I'm pretty happy with the results.  This challenge is all about feathers!  You can use an image that has feathers on it or create a feathered look on clothes, flowers, whatever! I had this digi and decided what better time to get a head start on my Christmas cards than May!  So here is my first Christmas card of the year.
Stamps: Delicious Doodles  Paper: Stash  Ink: Copics (R0000, R22, R24, R29, R39, R59, C7, YR14, YR20, E35, YG25, YG63, YG67)  Misc: Rhinestones

Ok, so did I mention prizes?  No?  Well, there is not only a prize for this challenge, but also a monthly prize as well.  Each month all of the challenge entries go into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to Oozak.com!  Think of all of the awesome things you could get with that.


This challenge runs until June 10th so you have plenty of time to enter.  The prize for this challenge is a $25 gift certificate to The Paper Temptress!  And remember if you play you will automatically go into the drawing for the $50 Oozak.com gift certificate, but you can't win if you don't play.  Head on over to the CMC Copic Challenge Group to play along.  Anyone can join just be sure to use your Copics.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT - Animals
Party Time Tuesdays  - Animal themed project
Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch
Creative Inspirations  - Christmas in May!

Thanks for stopping by!

BLD Sketch Challenge

Happy Thursday to you all!  I hope you are having a wonderful week!  Mine is definitely getting better as I have been fighting a cold, and losing, but I'm finally starting to feel a bit better.  On to this week's challenge.  This is my last challenge as part of the By LORi Designs Design Team and I've really had a wonderful time playing with Lori's cute digis. This week's challenge at By LORi Designs Challenges is a sketch.

 Great sketch, right?  I thought for my last DT card I would use my very first By LORi Designs image, Lollipop Ella.  The sentiment is from the Lollipop Happy Birthday Annie digi.

 Stamps: By LORi Designs  Paper: MME  Ink: Copics  Misc: Buttons, rhinestones, ribbon, Stickles

I hope you will join us for the sketch challenge this week over at the By LORi Designs Challenge blog.  Don't forget to check out what my other DT members have to share with you and leave them all some love.
