Happy Thursday! Although it is raining here again (for like the last month, seriously), I am determined to have a nice day. The kids have a bunch of activities today, so I will be driving all over town with a smile on my face regardless of the rain.
Today's card is made for 3 different challenges. The first challenge is Three Clover Designs Thursday challenge. The challenge was to make a card that is Red, White and Blue. I did that with a little cheating. I added in a off white almost tan. I think it still counts. The second challenge was a Digi Shack challenge. Their challenge was also to make a card that is Red, White & blue, as well as use on of their images. If you aren't familiar with the DIgi Shack, you have got to check them out. They have fabulous digital images that are so much fun. The image I used today is liberty Lani from the digi shack. Now, last but not least, I also managed to do MaryJo's Mondays Lunchtime Sketch challenge. I had to cheat a little, because I didn;t have a oval I could use, but otherwise I followed the sketch perfectly. I love when I can get 3 challenges in one. Wahooo.....
Well, that is it for me today. I hope you all have a wonderful day and happy creating. We would love to have you join us in anyone of the challenges....Come on, and come play with us!
I also wanted to share with all of you very talented ladies, that the Digi Shack is looking for some new DT members. Here are the details.
