CDAC Progressive Challenge

I decided to try out the CDAC Progressive Challenge this month.  I almost messed around too much though and missed the deadline.  I am glad that I got some Mojo and got in there to make a card.  This card will go in my box to send to Operation Write Home for someone to use later.

The digi came from digistamps4joy sent to me to use in the challenge.  The blue oval is cut with my Cuttlebug using the Spellbinders Nestabilities.  The Happy Birthday stamp is from Inspired Stamps.

Bugaboo Challenge

 I have recently found and fell in love with the bugaboo stamps.  They are just so cute and precious.  I have been following that blog and have found where I can enter weekly challenges.  So, with that being said, here is my card for that challenge which was a sketch challenge.

The digi is a freebie from Bugaboo Stamps of course.  The red gingham paper is from the Paper Studio.  The red, green and brown paper is just regular cardstock.  The I love You stamp is from a collection called "Greetings" from Inkadinkado.  The green cardstock was cut with the Doily Lace edge punch from Martha Stewart crafts. 

I had a lot of fun with the sketch challenge.  I can't wait to make more cards with this sketch.  All of the cards I make go on to be sent to Operation Write Home.

Meljens Blog Challenge

It is still so hot outside!  It is 7:45pm right now and it is still 103 degrees outside.  So, that means I have been making more cards and finding more blog challenges to enter.  I have found it helps to stimulate my mojo if I have a challenge to work on.  Anyway, here is my card for Meljen's blog challenge, Frame It.

The snowman digi is from Meljens of course.  The snowflake paper is from the Paper Studio.  The snowflake buttons are some out of my button jar and the red ribbon is some I got at the after Christmas sale last year at a local dollar store.
