LIFE ...
{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #21}

This week our theme for Challenge #21 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is a Anything Goes.  I used two digi images from Digi Stamps 4 Joy, namely Punkette Pia and Punkette Pat.  You can find Pia here and Pat here.   

Once again using my favourite step card technique, this is what I created. I have used H2O's to colour the funky Punkettes.  The Doodles were stamped with Chiswick acrylic stamps.  The design papers were Basic Grey.


Hope you like and will all play along this week and we cant wait to see what you create with our Anything Goes theme. So hop on over to Tammy's Scrapin Corner and link your creation to Challenge #21.







The sentiment was a quote I downloaded from my wall on FaceBook where it was posted by one of my friends.  Just right click on the sentiment and save to your computer.
I would love to try my hand with this creation over at the following challenges:
  1. Crafty Bloggers Netwerk Monday Challenge #1: Anything Goes
  2. Make it Monday #100: Anything Goes

DS4J has released a whole bunch of wonderfully designed new digi images on Sunday.  As a a design team member I had the privilege of receiving this gorgeous little sleeping baby digi called Nap Time, to create with.  Its an easel card. I used H2O's to coloured her with and the sentiment is a freebie from Desert Diva.  


So hop on over to DS4J's online shop and have a look at their wonderful digi images.

Thank you for popping in here - may your week be filled with love and happiness.
