Pumpkin PigWit

Hi All,  Just a quick post today.  Finally finished my card for From the Heart Digital Stamp of the Month August Challenge.  This month's set is called Pumpkin Pig Wit, and I think it's the cutest!

I colored this sweet image with Copics and colored pencils.  I kept my design simple; and just added a few die cut embellishments so this sweet piggy would take center stage.

Hope you all have a great week, and thanks for stopping by!

Big Trucks

Happy start to a new work week.  Today, Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the Incy Wincy Challenge.  The theme is "things with wheels".  Perfect timing too as I I couldn't wait to use the new DP set, Big Trucks.  By merging a sentiment from Birthday Accessories on the side of the truck, I was able to dress up this image for a birthday celebration.  

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Mod Squad Challenge -- Masculine Birthday
Crafting Musketeers Challenge#16 -- 1, 2, 3 (I used 1 image, 2 sentiments, and 3 balloons.)
Crafts Galore Encore Challenge - Anything Goes w/Di's Digis
613 Avenue Create Challenge #85 -- Anything Goes with no optional twist

Thanks for the visit and have a great day!

Hugs and Fishes

Happy Friday!  I've been wanting to play with this image for some challenges all week. So glad I got it done in time.  This cute whale is from a Doodle Pantry set called Winter Eskimo. I used the outline whale image from the set and added some digital paper piecing to the underside of the whale.  Coloring was done with Copics.   After coloring the image, I fussy cut in out by hand and mounted it with dimensionals on top of the water background paper. The sentiment is also from the same set.  All papers are by Stampin Up.  I used various die cuts and punches to finish my design.  I'm happy with how this turned out; and think it will be a fun birthday card for one of the little guys in our family.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Milk Coffee Challenge -- Add Stripes
Pile It On #22 -- Primary Colors

Thanks for your visiting.  Have a great day!

Carousel Dolphin

Happy August!  Gosh summer seems to be rushing by.  With the new month comes a new release by Doodle Pantry; and I am excited to share one of the new releases, Carousel Dolphin.  I love the vintage feel of this sweet image.  It brings back many wonderful memories of summer vacations, carnivals, and trips to the amusements park.
