Hello stamping friends!! We are having something fun this week over at Digi Darla's! We're having a little hop to showcase some of the new releases at our sister site - Digital Stamp Club!! Each of us on the DT chose an image from all of the June releases to show you and guess what? Each one of us will be choosing one lucky winning comment to receive our image choice!! So make sure you hop around to all our blogs and be sure to comment for a chance to win a DD image!!! We're also giving away a GRAND PRIZE!! Just for joining us, using a DIGI DARLA image, you will have a chance to win ALL of the June's New Release images!!! OMGosh!!
So, let's get this party started, shall we?? If you've arrived here from VANESSA then you are on the right track!! If you're just arriving, please be sure to start at the very beginning, Denise's blog, so you don't miss one thing!! Our challenge this week is to follow this card sketch, designed by our very own - Karen!!! Easy peezy!!
And here's my creation using Digi Darla's BEACH TIME.
As you can see, I made the sketch into a square card. This is a CONGRATS card for a dear friend/co-worker that has finally retired from a position that I almost had the pleasure of taking over. But then I made the glorious decision to "Step Down" from that possibility 4 years ago to be a MOM (and everything else). I joke with my friend that I "Retired" before she did. :-) Needless to say... I'm happy that she finally did it.
I also added to the inside of the card... not something I normally do.
I am also entering my card over at the newest challenge over at Stampin' Celebration #56 where the challenge is to use this photo as inspiration.
The beach theme, blues, oranges, water, beach chair clearly inspired me!!
Now before you leave, be sure to leave me a comment for a chance to
win the fabulous image of BEACH TIME that I used on my card!!
Don't forget to join our challenge this week for a chance to win the entire June Release-you need to use a Digi Darla image!!!
If you don't have one, please email Karen and she'll send you a past freebie!
Your next stop is the super talented KAREN!! Happy hopping and look fwd to seeing you at Digi Darla's this week!! Good luck!
