DT times Three!

The theme for April Sheepski Designs month is "Show Us Your Wings." Stop by the challenge at the Sheepski blog to learn more. Maybe you’ll be inspired to enter a card or two yourself and have a chance to win some Sheepski Designs digis!
For my DT card, I used a whimsical Sheepski Designs Digi named “Waiting.” I used an upcycled calendar page as the background, colored and fussy-cut the sweet image. I trimmed the wings from the image and replaced them with vellum wings that I lined with holographic sticker paper. After attaching the finished image to the card front I added a sprinkling of tiny white flowers with a dot of Buttercup Liquid Pearls to the center. They look like a breath of Spring! The inside sentiment is decorated with one cute little puffy heart sticker. I’m entering this card into a few challenges including Outlawz Thursday (Fairy) and Ching-Chou Kuik’s Challenge-Animals (this image includes a sweet little squirrel).

I’m enjoying being a DT for Sherry West Art, and had fun creating a card using her new digi named “Poppi Pokkadott.” You can find Sherry’s digis in her  Etsy shop HERE and completed cards with this digi on her FB page HERE. I made this card for a friend’s little daughter that loves playing dress-up. So… I added a delicate black netting petticoat and a sparkly flourish. The final touch was to glue tiny rhinestones to her earlobes and bracelet.

It's Wednesday! So 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!
This weeks challenge features a yummy digi from Patties Creations named Icecream Truck. One of my favorite childhood memories of the summer was the sound of the ice cream truck heading toward our block. My siblings and I would jump to life as the happy tune called to us, and Mom would dig out a few coins from her purse so we could buy a cool summer treat. Ahh, sweet memories! (One funny addition to my story is that we recently bought a new washing machine. The first day we used it I started laughing when it signaled that the laundry was done by playing a happy little tune that sounded a lot like that beloved ice cream truck. It almost makes me want to do the laundry more often. Almost!) I’m entering this card into a few challenges including Outlaws Monday- Geometric Shapes (rectangles).
