Digi Doodle Shop’s Best Challenge #13

Today when you see this think of me in physical therapy….. Believe me I am sure I will be wishing I was sitting here in front of my computer looking at everyone’s creations…..

Today’s challenge is “Anything Goes” and I made this card a few weeks ago and thought I would use it in this challenge.  I colored the nastursums with my wonderful Copic markers.  Joy has created for Digi Doodle Shop so many wonderful floral stamps I can’t keep up.  But I am trying.  So go on over to the store and get you some stamps and get to coloring…..  I really want to see everyone’s work even though I won’t be making for a few weeks I will be here looking at yours.

keep in touch 61310   

Now it is your turn jump on over and get your creations linked up for all of us to see.

Cards to find my MOJO

Yesterday I forced myself to create something.  I had these 2  beautiful stamps from Digi Doodle Shop already colored with my Copics  and thought a piece of my new October Afternoon “Fly A Kite”  paper looked good with them.  So I made 2 cards using the same papers.  The polka dot dolie and square I cut with my Cricut using Papertrey Ink “Bitty Dot Basics”.  Cards are 4 1/4 X  4 1/2

So I do believe my mojo is on its way back.

Button, Button, who has the Button ?

After some discouraging time this week with the Digi Doodle Shop having technical problems, it is finally open for business as usual.  Judy is so very sorry for all the inconveniences this caused her customers and fans.  Her wonderful newsletter didn’t go out on Monday so the June specials are surprises.  I have a feeling it might have something to do with the men in our lives.  And I also think there is another Summer Sets Special.  

I want to say thank you so very much Doreen and Sarah for being wonderful Guest Designers.  Your creations are such show pieces.  Thank you for sharing your talents and creativity with us this past month. 
Our challenge this week is a creation with a button or buttons on it.  One of my favorite things to use.  And of course I had a wonderful stamp to work with too.  Joy, Judy’s mother, created this wonderful rooster.  I colored him with my Copic Markers and used papers and buttons from my stash.  The buttons I connected with a piece of twine from my stash and used glue dots on the back
Rooster #7
Thank you everyone who participated in our blog hop last week.  I enjoyed visiting everyone’s blog and looking at their creations.  So let us see what you can do with buttons this week.  Go on over to Digi Doodle Shop’s Best and check out everyone else’s creations and then get yours all linked up.  Remember the winner all are considered for Guest Designer.
