Anything Goes and A Digi

Good Morning!

Happy Friday! Hope you've had a good week. Sorry I haven't posted all week, my daughter was sick most of the week and so my crafting time was little. I do have a couple of cards to share today though. Friday brings 2 new challenges, one over at Just Magnolia and the other at Stamp Something.

Stamp Something
First up is my card for Stamp Something. This week we have our monthly digi day challenge which means if it's digital, you can enter it! You can use digi images, papers, digital layouts, etc, but please be sure your project is new. We have many fab prizes up for grabs from our sponsors.

For my card I've used a brand new Whimsy Stamps digi illustrated by Crissy Armstrong. This sweet little guy is called "Whatzup Dog!" and I think he's darling! There are 2 other new dog images and a set of party accessories, that you can use with him or with any other image. And Whimsy is one of our sponsors this week, so you could be a lucky winner and get to pick these new images, if you play along!

I colored the image with Copics in grey tones and added some black as well. The card is simple as I plan to use this for a masculine birthday card later on. The papers are BG Max and Whiskers and I've added some black brads to the corners and a dog bone and paw print piece of ribbon to accent.

This card also fits at:
Creative Belli  - animals
Creative Craft World  - for a male
Sisterhood of Crafters  - ribbon and brads
Paper Playtime - Anything goes with a Digi

Next up is my card for this week's JM challenge which is "anything goes" with the option of glitter. And remember you can use any Magnolia and/or Hanglar and Stanglar images to qualify for the prize.

I've used this Tilda with her lilacs and colored her to match the Graphic 45 papers. I LOVE these papers and need to order more! I've stitched the edges on the sewing machine and then distressed them a bit too. The image was colored with Copics and then I added some white flower soft to create the white lilacs. I've embellished with swirls of gems and flowers that have been glittered up with twinklet and then some lace and vintage seam binding.

This card fits at:
Fab 'n' Funky  - spring
Scrapbook Sisters - Spring
Simon Says Stamp - recipe - 1 image, 2 DP, 3 embellishments
Anything Goes Challenge - Distressing
Oldie But Goodie Challenge - Spring is in the Air
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Spring - flowers Everywhere!
Craft Your Passion - Girly
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
