Stamp with fun #142–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you’ve had a good weekend and if you’ve been unlucky enough to see some of the “white stuff” I hope that it hasn’t caused you too many problems.  It hasn’t been too bad here, we had some snowfall on Wednesday but thankfully it didn’t stick, although I did have a scary moment driving home from work when I completely lost control on the slippery surface – thankfully there were no cars near me at the time and I came out unscathed.  I was definitely a bit shaken up though and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we don’t have any more!! 

I’m here this morning with my DT card for this week’s stamp with fun challenge and this will be our last challenge until 9th January 2012 so that the DT can have a nice break with their families.  We have a brilliant sketch by Andrea-Emmi41 to work with and here is my card:

I have used a super image from DigiStamp Boutique called ‘Louie & teddy’ and coloured it with promarkers and flex markers.  The papers are all from my scraps box and the sentiment is by verve stamps from the clear stamp set called ‘family phrases’.  I created the birth details on my pc and added some baker’s twine and pearls as finishing touches. 

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Delightful challenge – anything goes

Dutch dare challenge – tic-tac-toe (pearls, distressing, embossing)

Meljen’s challenge – no rectangle cards

Shelly’s images challenge – show us what you got

Southern girls challenge – let’s celebrate

Phindy’s place challenge – use your scraps

Simply create too challenge – embossing

Allsorts challenge – blue & brown

Totally gorjuss challenge – for someone special

Crafter’s companion challenge – new beginnings

Ready teddy go challenge – anything goes

Corrosive challenge – anything except Christmas

The crafty pad challenge – anything but Christmas

OSAAT challenge – anything goes

I hope you will be able to join in with our challenge and don’t forget our next challenge after this one won’t be until 9th January 2012.  I will be back later with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge so I hope you will call back later.  Until then have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by.
