hey friend

** 7/24/16 Winner at Come And Get It Challenges! **

Hi everyone! We're plunging into the bottom half of July. My sister's birthday is next month and I've always said that once her birthday hits in August, the rest of the year is a blur. And it's so flippin' hot here, I'm READY for some cooler weather... come on Fall! ;) It's time for another fun challenge over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I'm happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #82 - Anything Goes! Our sponsors this time are Bugaboo Digi StampsKarleigh Sue Digis and Oddball Art Co. so come over and play for a chance to win some pretty awesome prizes!

I chose the absolutely adorable 'Animal Love Sara & Friends' digi from Oddball Art Co. for my friendship card. I pulled out a 6x6 paper pack that I just love and created something fun and cheerful. I also used a medallion die that I've had forever and have never used.

Isn't Sara the cutest little thing ever?! Such a doll! I used some stitched oval dies and added my big signature multi loop bow. I bought 28 colors of Crystal Drops several months ago and don't use them nearly enough, so I played with the pink and green this time.

For the inside, I stamped a simple sentiment on a panel that I decorated with a leftover strip of paper used on the front.

Happy to enter this sweet card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock, Stampin' Up! Watermelon Wonder cardstock, Stampin' Up! Pear Pizzazz cardstock scrap, My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Life of the Party 6x6 paper
  • Stamps: Oddball Art Co. Animal Love Sara & Friends digital image, Paper Smooches Delightful Greetings stamp set
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Spectrum Noir- FS2, FS3, FS6, TN3, TN4, CR1, CR2, GB10, TB2, TB3, CG1, CG2, CT1, CT4
  • Dies/Punches: Memory Box Stitched Oval Layers dies, Spellbinders Medallion Four die
  • Accessories: Apple Green and Bubblegum Blush Crystal Drops, Really Reasonable Ribbon Pink Salmon seam binding, Darice foam
