Dennis plus two Critters

It's time for another challenge at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog where challenges are always Anything Goes and prizes are awarded from one or more sponsors.  Stop by the blog to check it out! The sponsor this week is Dr. Digi and I used a digi named "TV Dinner Dennis” on my DT card. The sentiments are computer-generated. I created a frame around the humorous digi with a few layers of paper and secured them with regular office staples to add an unusual twist to the card.

·    Sentiments- Computer Generated

My next card was created to fit into two challenges; Bugaboo BINGO and Pixies Snippets. It includes the following BINGO items- Diagonal from lower left (dots/stripes, Bugaboo image “Monkey Love Handful of Hearts” and Hearts). And the hearts were made with a handful of snippets that I found in my scrap box. It was fun to put them to use. I resized and cropped the cute monkey digi and printed him on kraft paper. There was little coloring needed, but a bit of fussy-cutting before I adhered him to the bold plaid paper. The sentiments are from a great We Are 3 digi set.

·    Sentiments- We Are 3 Digital Sentiments (Valentines)

My final card was created for the wecraftcards Forum NomNom Crop’s challenge named “Steak.” We were to create a “plain and simple colored image on a panel then on a base. And you can add just a bit of garnish, or bling, if you want.” I used a wonderful image from Pattie’s Creations named Allie Hiding in the Leaves. Isn’t it sweet? Printed on kraft paper simplified the coloring. My garnish is two wooden leaves that I found in the clearance aisle at Hobby Lobby after Thanksgiving last fall.
