Digital Tuesday Challenge

I was doing some blog hopping this morning, trying to get my mojo going, and hopped on over to the Digital Tuesday Challenge Blog to see what was going on. This week's challenge is a sketch. I've never done any challenges like this before, so I decided to give it a try.


As most of you know, I'm on the Design Team for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, and when I saw the Digital Tuesday Challenge today, I immediately thought of this card kit that Lindsay offered as a freebie on her blog, The Frugalcrafter's Weblog. Click HERE to link directly to the free card kit.

To get the larger apples, I cropped the apple on the books, enlarged it, and cut and pasted it 3 times. I used a cream cardstock base, a scrap of black to mat the stamp, and a black brad for the arrow. The stamps were colored with my Bic MarkIts and blended with a Prisma colorless blender pen. Everything else was part of Lindsay's FREE kit!

Needless to say, this challenge and Lindsay's great kit got my mojo going full speed ahead. I made a bunch of cards today, but you'll have to check back in on Thursday to see more! Until then, Happy Stamping, Everyone!

This is a Fabulous teacher card!! I'm all done with my teacher's gifts/cards this year, but I will have a need for one more in about 4 1/2 weeks, so I'm heading straight over to Lindsey's blog to check this kit out! Tracey, I really love it and those enlarged apples are great!! I keep forgetting to pick up an alcohol blender pen...thanks for the reminder! :>:>
