Good morning!

Today at Dream Valley we have an animal challenge!  It can be any type of a project, but it has to have an animal on it!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Robin's Fetish:

For my project I have made a Stampscapes scene and colored it in with my copics.  This was done on regular white paper where I usually have my Stampscapes scenes on glossy. I wanted to see if copics were conducive making a nice scene.  What I decided is that the color schemes work really well with it, but I really prefer the glossy scene as it really makes the colors pop.  

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

The House That Stamps Built - masculine card
One Stop Craft Challenge - Anything goes
Our Creative Corner - anything goes

I hope you have a great week and can join in our challenge over at Dream Valley!

Toes in the water, toes in the sand....

Love that song!  The challenge at Dream Valley is NO SQUARES ALLOWED.  Yup, you need to have a card or project that isn't a square or a rectangle.

I am so very much enjoying the warm weather we are having!  So much so that I wanted to share a beach scene with you!  This image is from Saturated Canary called Toes in the Sand.  I was trying to come up with something that wasn't too normal of a card for me, so I chose to use a scalloped half-circle cut from a cricut cartridge from Close to My Heart (thanks Di for letting me borrow it!).  The green patterned paper panel was cut using the big shot with a spellbinders die.  I was going to add more details and bling to it once it was all adhered, but decided to let the image speak for itself.  She just looks so bold, beautiful and confident!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:
Di's Digi Designs - Anything but square
Totally Papercrafts - Don't be square

Wherever you are and whatever you are doing this week, make it a good one!
