PIP Challenge #2303

 Time for another challenge over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenges.  For Challenge #2303 Pam is giving out a $10 gift certificate to My Favorite Things.  


I'm sure you love this company as much as I do.  Since Pam is giving out a gift certificate to My Favorite Things, I thought I would pull out one of my favorite MFT stamps called Spring Songbird.  

I colored the images with my copic markers and then used the matching dies to cut them out.  I used the TE Mini Slim Circle Window Cutting plate with the pink paper that is by Echo Park called I Love Spring.  I just love these Mini Slim Line cards.  So fun to make.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure and join us over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenges.

Dueling Darlings New Look

We are half way through January.  Not sure how that happened but since today is the 15th, that means it is time for our Dueling Darlings Duel.  After many years of keeping us on the ball, Kelly has decided to step down from this group which means Jeanette and Barb will be directing us in this fun challenge.

To start off we have a new name for our group which is the Creative Crew.  We will still post on the 15th of each month to share our cards.  There are 7 of us so we each will take a month to host.  The host will choose the theme for the month and send kits to the other group members.  It is always a surprise on the 15th what our theme will be.

For January, Jeanette and Barb teamed up for our challenge.  Barb sent us images and Jeanette sent us papers and embellishments.  


The theme for January is Snow.  Not a surprise since it is January and we see an occasional snow.  Since Barb lives up north, she seems quite a bit more that the rest of us.  The image is from Creative Vision called Snowman with Broom - large.  I had to think a but about how to use this large image but was quite pleased with how the card turned out.  The papers are from Jeanettes stash.  The striped tag is from Paper Studio which I stamped a sentiment from MFT Winter Songbird.  

Thanks to Barb and Jeanette for starting us off to a great start in 2023.  Listed below are the links to the other gals creations for the month.

PIP Challenge #2301

 Happy 2023.  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.  It sure seems like 2022 passed in a flash.  I am excited for our first challenge of 2023 for Pammies Inky Pinky Challenges.  This week is being sponsored by Gerda Steiner Designs.  

Since I have 2 kitties at home I thought it would be fun to use the stamp set "Cat In Box" for my card today.  It is a digital stamp and was pretty easy to color with my copic markers.
The papers I used for the card were from MFT Time to Celebrate 6 x 6 pad.  The balloons were made with a Stampin Up Balloon punch.  I had seen the sentiment somewhere on the internet and thought it would be perfect for the card.  I typed it up on my computer and printed it on white card stock.  

Thanks for stopping by to check out my card and a special thanks to Gerda Steiner Designs for sponsoring us this week.
