DT Creations

It’s Friday, so time for another challenge at QKR Stampede!  Stop by the challenge, which is always “Anything Goes” and several prizes are awarded. Maybe you’ll be inspired to enter a card or two yourself? My DT card features the Eureka scripture stamp named “1 Corinthians 13:13.” I added paper, sheer ribbon, the edging of a square doily and small silver charm to finish a lovely card. I’m entering this card into several challenges including two Outlawz Challenges: Twisted Thursday (the first embellishment I ever used, or one of the first, was a paper doily. I still love the delicate beauty they can add to a card)  and  Saturday Paper Ala Model (this card holds one of my favorite scriptures. It always reminds me of my wedding day over 42 years ago. At the time I didn’t think I could be any happier or love my hubby any more than I did that day.  I was wrong!)          
·    Cow Image- Eureka Digital Stamp (1 Corinthians 13:13)
·    Patterned Heart paper- Hobby Lobby
·    5" Square French Lace Paper Doily (I used the edging)- purchased from an Etsy Shop.
·    Sheer ribbon along the cards edges and silver heart charm are from my stash.

Friday also means that I get to share DT cards for the Colour Crazy Challenge. This challenge is also an “Anything Goes” but it adds a requirement- the creation needs to include coloring in “any colouring medium you like, onto any project you like, and in any colours you like.” I’ve never outgrown my love for coloring… which is why I so love making cards! Our sponsor this week is Dr Digi, and I had such a hard time picking from the digis that they provided that I picked two!
My first features a fun image named Dunderton Decorators Ltd with a creative background (or should I say backdrop?!) made from upcycled wrapping paper.  The sentiments are computer-generated. The second features a lovable pair from a digi named Salon Deirdery. This card is for my stylist who has a great sense of humor and is sure to love it. The front sentiment is from my scrapbook stash and the inside sentiment is die-cut upcycled from an old card. Both of the cards were colored with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen.
ONE ADDED NOTE: The Colour Crazy Challenge is looking to expand the Design Team and have a few positions available. We are a friendly and helpful team, challenges go live every Friday at 8am GMT and last for two weeks. We have four teams who post once every 4 weeks (although you can join in more often if you want!) and we have lots of wonderful and generous sponsors who allow us to use their images. We are looking for individuals who colour their own images, who have their own blog and a Facebook profile. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, drop the challenge coordinator an email HERE. Closing date is 14 February.
