Three Clover Thursday & Digi Shack challenge Thursday

Happy Thursday!!!! Today i have two wonderful challenges for you. The first challenge is Kerry's over at Three Clover Designs. Her challenge was to make a card using flowers the flowers can be anywhere or anything. This is a really easy challenge for me, because I almost always have a flower somewhere on my card (hehehe).
Okay, while I was away on my stamping trip in Vermont, friends of mine (Mary/Peggy)were showing me some of there new stamps. They had just place a fairly good sized order with Sugar Nellie and they were playing with those. Well, I have seen sugar Nellie and liked them, but in person, I LOVED them. Oh boy, another thing I "MUST" have. My card today was made with one of there images. They tell me she is a pen pal girl, but I thought she looked more "rocker" girl to me, so I went with that. These are really fun images to color and to make "your own". These images can easily look so different depending on who is creating with them. I LOVE them! I don;t always like my cards, but I was pretty happy with this one. She kinda reminds me of my daughter.

Over that same weekend I had purchased some of the Bo Bunny flowers (I haven't seen these in my area), and put them on this card, Added some stickles and there ya have it.
Do you love flowers? Wanna play?To participate please upload your card to your blog or SCS and leave a direct link to that post with Mr. Linky over at Kerry's.

Digi Shack Challenge

Today's Digi Shack challenge is a sketch challenge. Trying to figure out my cards layout out is the hardest part for me, so a sketch challenge makes the rest easy. Love sketch challenges!

For the sketch image, I used one of Digi Shack's new Lani images. These are so cute, you have got to check them out. I new how I wanted to color her, but I wasn;t sure of her purpose. Who would I give this card to? I took a closer look at her and decided she was kinda "sexy" (hehehe). Well, that then lead to blue eye shadow, blush and pink lipstick, and then finally my saying (computer generated). I still don;t know who I will give this to, but I think it's funny for a grown mans b-day. What do you think? Wanna play Shack and join in on the fun. When uploading your samples to your gallery please use keyword TDSC05. Also, Toni, the owner is very generous she is over FREE Digi Hawaiian sayings. Go ahead over and get them.

Last but not least, I am addicted to using my new cloud maker, and I have been using clouds in all my cards. You don't have to have a Cloud maker to make clouds. You can use a scalloped oval circle. I am going to do a Mini tutorial on my blog tomorrow, so check back if you like my clouds!
