2 Penny’s Plus +1!

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!
For this challenge, I couldn’t decide which image I’d like to use on my DT card… so I decided to make TWO cards! The first card features a wonderful wizard from Dr. Digi. It was so fun to create this card. Except for the fact that when I shared it with my hubby he called me a counterfeiter! Ha! (It's okay... I copied pics of play money I found on the web- and cite the source in my supplies list. So, I did nothing illegal in the making of this card!) The fun sentiment on this card is a variation of one that used to be sold by a company named Victorine Originals which is no longer in business. It is what inspired me to add the flurry of fake money to the card.
I’m entering this card into several challenges including Bugaboo Stamps- All About the Kids (I’m thinking that any kid with a sense of humor would like this card… and even some 65-year-old kids would also get a kick out of it!)  
Supplies: 
·   Digi- Dr Digi (Wizz Doodles)
·   Colored with Spectrum Noir Classique markers and Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen
·   Play Money (front and back) found HERE.
·   Sentiments- Computer Generated
·   
Star Template and silver starred vellum from my scrapbook stash.

·   All paper, including Silver glitter paper, from my stash.

The second sponsor for the current challenge at Penny’s is Jan’s Digis. My sweet mom had a green thumb so I have fond memories of her beautiful flower gardens and window boxes. Lily of the Valley was her favorite spring flower… and I love them, too. So this wonderful image really warms my heart. (And her name was Rose. How perfect is that?!) The inside sentiment is from another of Jan’s Digi stamp sets named Signs of Autumn. I love the message it carries. I wanted to add a bit of texture to the heart tag by making it look like weathered wood with a light pink stain. After several unsuccessful attempts on a scrap of paper, I finally tried adding the woodgrain with a plain old #2 pencil and it worked beautifully!
I’m entering this card into several challenges including We Craft Cards- Home Sweet Home (where we were to depict what makes us happy when we think of the three words- live, laugh, and love. Those three words make me think of my sweet mom who is one of my greatest heroes- or should I say my greatest SHEro! Mom raised six children while working full time, living on a shoestring, and dealing with debilitating health issues. I learned so many important life lessons from her. The most important was to trust in God and also to see beauty and grace in everything and everyone. I miss her every day!), Scribbles Designs and Path of Positivity (with themes of heartfelt and celebrating those you love. My sweet mom fills both of those categories!)
 
Supplies: 
·   Digi and front sentiment- Jan’s Digi Stamps (Lily of the Valley)
·   Colored with Spectrum Noir Classique markers and Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen
·   Inside Sentiment- Jan’s Digi Stamps (Signs of Autumn)
·   All other items from my stash.

My final card this post was made for The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge that requires the word Smile and/or a Sun. My card features a sun on the turtle's shell… and the sweet little Turt brings a smile to my face! I also love the wonderful background embossed on yellow vellum.
Note- the cute little turtle is from a company named Little Scraps of Heaven. Tricia Veinot Moore, owner/artist of LSOH offers a weekly freebie. This digi was a freebie several years ago. Stop HERE to nab the current one (an adorable llama in cap and scarf!). And, while you are there, you might want to do some shopping because right now all the LSOH digis are on sale for just $1.) If you want to get a weekly email notifying you of the current freebie, scroll down to the very bottom of the page to sign up for the newsletter. Easy Peasy! Tricia also has a FB page HERE.
I'm entering this card into several challenges that focus on sentiments (Outlawz- Saturday Paper Ala Mode and Digi Doodle Studios), Simon Says Wed-Favorite Technique (I love doing paper piecing), plus Little Scraps of Heaven-create a card or tag for someone you love ( I made this card for my youngest sister, Judi who loves turtles and sun... and being a single mom with three grown children and three grandkiddos really deserves a vacation on the beach!)

  18. Kathy, you amaze me with the variety you manage to pump out. Your Dr. Digi card gave me such a good laugh! What a great way to use the image! Your Jan's Digi Stamps card pulled on my heartstrings and made me appreciate my Mom all the more. I love how your woodgrain turned out.
