Imagine that Digistamp April 2017 link-up

I won this digi "Retro Waitress" on a recent Imagine that Digistamp Facebook competition. As soon as I saw it, I was taken back to the days of watching Richie Cunningham and The Fonz in Happy Days. What a classic TV show! I could not resist using some of the lyrics to the theme song on this card, as well as sourcing a free jukebox clip art on Google.  After coming up with my ideas for this card, I was saddened to hear of the passing of Erin Moran, RIP Joanie Cunningham.  I hope you like my card and head over to http://www.imaginethatdigistamp.com/store/c1/Featured_Products.html to see the great digi sets, Kristy from Imagine that Digistamp has to offer.  Kristy's digi sets have so much to offer - sentiments, coloured versions of the stamp and some even come with papers, great value for your small outlay.  You will definitely find something there you can't resist - I did!  So glad I found Imagine that Digistamp!

April Progressive Challenge at the Outlawz

This month's Progressive Challenge at the Outlawz showcases the work of Mary Smith from Createful Heart and what a lovely image is Hummingbird n Morning Glory Flowers.
I have chosen to make a Mother's Day card because here in Australia we celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday of May, I think a little different to some countries.  I have chose a CAS layout to showcase Mary's beautiful image.  Thank you for looking at my card.

Gerda Steiner Designs Progressive Challenge April 2017

This month's image from Gerda is called Pen Pal Bear.  What a great image to use on a little note card.  You know those cards you send with a note on the side.  Well I decided to add some lines in the middle of the card.  Nothing like starting a little note on the left hand side when you write on a card and find your message is so crooked and you have run out of room.  This card is perfect for catching up with friends.  Thank you Gerda for yet another cute image for our Progressive Challenge. For those who haven't come across Gerda's website check this out, images full of cuteness I say. https://gsd-stamps.com/

Steampunk, something I am not real confident with, maybe it's my age group, but I ventured out of my comfort zone and chose Chastity Steampunk 2 for this card http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=89_206&products_id=884
As a matter of fact, Janice has some great images in the Victorian and Steam Punk section of her store http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=89_206
Why not check them out now - they can be mixed and matched to create something spectacular.  I have coloured Chastity with Copics and used some pipe and cog dies to get into the theme.  I hope my card inspires you to take a look in the store http://scrappersdelights.com/store/
Thank you for joining me today and I will see you at our Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/376140345820051/ with your creations.  We may be on the DT Team but your work inspires us too! Have a great day creating!

Rainy Days Digi 1 - what a great freebie especially with the weather we are having in New South Wales, Australia.  Boy, has it been wet and sad for some families too, lives have been lost in some very bad conditions, and young lives too, families torn apart with grief.  But onto a happier note, this digi is available here https://www.facebook.com/groups/376140345820051/.  Why not join our group and get into the swing of our progressive challenge each month, it is a lot of fun and there are always a great range of bargains to be had at the store http://scrappersdelights.com/store/.
Our optional twist for this month was to NOT make a square or rectangle card.  Well I decided to get out one of my WeRMemoryKeepers Lucky 8 punches.  Tools certainly take up a great deal of your stash, just when you think you might be able to whittle away at it, you remember the many tools you have bought over the years,  I cut the doily in half and used that as my base card.  I could not decide between the two sentiments so I used both.  The yellow doily you see peeking out of the bottom of the flowers is supposed to be an umbrella but I think I went overboard with the floral arrangement and the umbrella handle is a toothpick covered with thin wire to make the hook. When I never know what one of my cards can be used for, I always call them inspirational! lol
I hope I have inspired you to go grab Rainy Days Digi 1 and create something beautiful.
