First off, if you are reading this, I got the time-stamp posting thing correct this time! Woohoo! Now, on to the info you all come here for~
This card is from 2 challenges: CAS25 on Splitcoast Stampers and 2 Red Bananas weekly challenge. CAS25 was an inspiration challenge, based upon a card in the first post. The card had cherries on it and was so darn cute! 2RB wanted us to "spell it out" by implementing letter stickers or chipboard letters. On Thursday, Cute Card Thursday posted a challenge for "fruit" to be incorporated in the design. So here are the deets:
Cardstock: DCWV black #1, White #1; Bazzill Bling Jade green; Colorbok plaid vellum
Ink: Colorbox Dragonfly black pigment ink
Stamps: Michael's $1 cherries, "so sweet" sentiment
Accessories: Offray checkered ribbon; teal chipboard letters (from Target $1 spot); Copics Markers [0 colorless blender; R27 Cadium Red, R29 Lipstick Red; G07 Nile Green; PrismaColor Marker Green Tea]; green and red Twinklette markers

<------------ This little blog looks sweet and girly, and all, right? WRONG! This blog has the most awesome line of digi images of trucks, patrol cars, and more. Think Radiator Springs from Disney/Pixar's Cars movie, with all the cars that take on human personalities. So cute, and great images to D/L and color. Make sure you email Sunshine for the images. These make great "boy" things, as I need help in that area b/c I am tend to do much more girly things with Karsyn in mind.
I am off to work on a CAS card for Splitcoast, and maybe some postcards as well. Have a wonderful afternoon~

What a BUSY week I have had-- new furniture delivered, net a bunch of SCS Ho's at a shoebox swap on Saturday, family reunion with DH's family, but one of my fave card crafters sent in a special request, so in honor of her, here is a new digi. As always, all I ask is that if you use any of my digi's, please share a link to your creation, either by linking back here from your site, or leave one in my comment sections. Thanks and enjoy~

Boy, I don't know about you, but I sure wish summer would arrive! There has not been one single 90* day in the month of July here, and normally we are 90+ this month. So anyways, to commemorate summer, here's a new circle DigiPhrase. Enjoy~ I am off to create some cased for back to school (I've got a *C U T E* cas card in my head right now!), will try to post tomorrow.

WOW~ we had a great time up on the islands, but am glad to be home again at my crafting space. I was trying my darndest to come up with a design for a card for a DT submission, and I did while we were on vacation. All I kept thinking about was the design I came up with in the middle of one night. Silly crafting syndrome! Anyways... we got home and I immediately checked the threads on SCS for some challenges!
So this card meets the requirements for 2 challenges-- CAS23 on Splitcoast Stampers and an invite-only challenge thread I belong to SCS as well. This card SOOO exhibits my decorating style, which is clean and simple, fairly modern. It is also my personality-- smooth and easy-going, with great bursts of colorful moments all over! And since red is my FAVO color, it had to be the bursts.
I think this card would be great done in a black & white combo, or any other bright shade against the white.
Cardstock: GP White
Ink: SU! Real Red
Accessory: 3/8" red grosgrain ribbon
Other: 3 scored lines across the bottom, but they are hard to see in the pic.

Paper: SU! Yo-Yo Yellow, Dusty Durango; Vellum; printed paper from The Paper Studio; Bazzill Cherry Red, Shimmer Blue
Ink: SU! Basic Brown
Accessories: Making Memories blue eyelets; dimensional tape; Target $1 Spot ribbon and chipboard letters; Fiskars 2-inch star punch
*** On a side note, I am leaving on vacation Monday morning, headed to the Lake Erie Islands, will be back on Thursday, so I am taking this week off from challenges, but hope to be back ready to go on Sunday morning with Banana Split Sunday Challenge!

This card is for Cute Card Thursday's weekly challenge, and this week's challenge was to create a Thank You card for a teacher. I knew immediately I wanted to use School Riley from Hanna Stamps. I created a faux word border using a tutorial from Split Coast Stampers to go above and below the "chalk board". I wanted to keep the background neutral, so as to resemble a classroom wall, like mine.
Paper: Bazzill tan, black, and white. SU! Dusty Durango
Ink: SU! Basic Brown (combined with SU! DD cardstock to create faux wood), Colorbox Dragonfly Black pigment
Stamps: School Riley from Hanna Stamps
Accessories: Offray "Ruler" ribbon, White Sakura gel pen, dimensional tape, Copic/Prisma markers to color image

For Splendid Stamping with TGF Farm Fresh Challenge posted on July 3rd, a sketch~~ I used Matey set, some blingies, eyelets, twine, and copic markers to color in my little pirate! The DigiPhrase is available in another post here on my blog.
Hey Cupcake! This little goodie is for CAS22 over on Splitcoast & Digital Tuesday Challenge 14. Pink and white cardstock from Bazzill, scalloped edge scissors and a 1/16" hole punch create the deco edge. Cupcake image colored in with copic and prisma markers, pink frosting coated with Startdust stickles, cherry is crystal effect'ed.
Finally, 2Red Bananas challenge this week is looking for "Something Patriotic," and this is my creation. I am liking the CAS style! But then, I also love the opposite-- full of layers and frillies. Anyways, created this card with a $1 clear stamp (star), blue printed paper from Hobby Lobby, red and white cardstock from Bazzill, SU! Real Red ink, twine, and a star blingy. There are also 3 scored lines across the bottom of the card, but you cannot see them in the picture.
