Happy Giraffe

Hey everyone. Welcome to my first post of the day. I will be back shortly with a second card to share. My first card is done for a few challenges so let's just get to them.

Challenge #1 was a sketch challenge for the Whimsical Wednesday challenge over at the Diedrich Dare blog. You can find them here http://www.thediedrichdare.blogspot.com/ The sketch was created by Jack. Thanks for a fun sketch to follow.

Challenge number #2 was to use your scraps and the challenge was put on by the ladies at Digital Tuesday. Check out the DT cards at http://www.digitaltuesdaychallenge.blogspot.com/
All the paper found on this card was in my scrap envelope and I actually still have some left after this.

Challenge #3 is actually a challenge to be a Featured Stamper over at Meljen's Designs found here http://meljensdesigns.blogspot.com/ and I used one of her freebie images. I love this image, well actually, I love all her images. Its a good thing she gives out some freebies because I'd be broke otherwise.

Challenge #4 is actually over on Cafemom in a group I belong to. The challenge there is to make a tall card. This is my first one so it was a little tricky for me. I am pleased with the outcome though. Still not sure if they are going to be a style that I use very often though.

Challenge #5 put on by Practical Scrappers is to use something you have had over a year. I have had the Primas, brads and the ribbon for much longer than that. This is my first time playing along with this blog, you should go check them out and play along too http://practicalscrappers.com

Challenge #6 is over at Pile It On. The challenge this week is animals, in addition to having your card fit other challenges. There are some great DT cards to look at over there and if you look real hard you just might find a link to a cute freebie that I have waiting for me at home to color up. http://pileitonchallenge.blogspot.com/

This card was made for my Grandma for Mother's Day, I figured I'd get an early start this year so I'm not scrambling at the last minute. the card covers a few challenges.

Challenge one is for the I Love Digi challenge. They had a challenge to use a sketch with the theme of Card for Mom. Well here is my take on it and I am very happy with the way it turned out.
