Dustin Pike is sponsoring this week's challenge and is offering 3 digital images to the winner. There are lots of images to choose from. To join in on the challenge you must use at least one digital image and your creations must be new (no back linking to older blog posts).
Please leave a direct link to your creation with Mr Linky HERE so the design team can find it easily. If you don't have a blog you can upload to an online gallery using keyword DTC52.
I'm using another gorgeous pre-colored pink rose from Fred, She Said Designs. My first scrap is the chunk of Happy Birthday sheet music design paper...popped right out of my scrap drawer at me....I like that the words to the song show so nicely and I did nothing but take it out of the drawer and pop it on my card....SCORE!
I used some Martha Stewart punches....edge punch is lined with some coordinating pink paper...another scrap! I didn't punch out any of the other pieces for this project, or even create the embossed background....can you say scraps on my desk?! I love challenges like this that just pop together so easily! .....maybe I should play about 566 more times and my desk will be clean!!

The challenge for this month at Fred, She Said Design's Challenge Blog is SPRING!
In March we leave Old Man Winter behind so let's create a VERY SPRING-Y project,
loaded with all those lovely pastel colors!
Be sure to use a FRED SHE SAID image somewhere on your card! If you don't have one, there are LOADS of freebies available HERE!
This card uses a beautiful pre-colored rose instead of a springy flower....but pink and green and white are spring-y colors anyway!! I LOVE this awesome piercing template....it really dresses up Stampin Up!'s Top Note Die! ANYTHING layered on a Cuttlebug Textile Embossing Folder is beautiful! Card is topped off with a few Martha Stewart butterfly punches and pearls! Thinking of you is by Paper Inspirations.

Duncan Hines Birthday Challenge

Hi, and welcome to another great Friday Challenge!! This week is all about Duncan Hines. March 26, 1880 was the birth of Duncan Hines. Yes, THE Duncan Hines, of the cake/baking empire. In honor of his birthday, let's create a layout, card, mini album, packaging or alterable with a cake, cupcake, frosting, sprinkles or anything cake-related on it. If you create packaging, for example, you could create a package decorating a cake baking gift set. Anything goes, just have fun!

Tracey is ushering spring in with some gorgeous floral images....and though I do not like Lilies of the Valley in my garden...(they take over!), I do love the paper version! I colored my image with copic markers YG17, YG25, YG03, YG00, B34 and B41. I cut it out and layered it some blue papers from my scrap drawer....a simple card that really pops the image beautifully.

I paired up a bunch of goodies from the store to make a sweet birthday card! I used the reverse side of American Craft Blissful Bunny designer paper for my brown card base. The pink designer paper is American Craft's Warm Wishes. The cupcake image is from a Scrappin' Doodles digital kit called the Cupcake Collection which is available in the digital shoppe. I carefully cut out the cupcake and popped it up on foam tape for dimension.
I used some sentiments from an Inkakinkadoo acrylic set for this card, as well as a Martha Stewart edge punch. Thanks for taking a peek!
I've been busy in the kitchen over the weekend with my son's birthday. Looking forward to getting lots of cards together and shared here soon! Sometimes life happens and then stamping doesn't!!

I cut out the images and coordinated them with the Pink Paislee Cupid Collection. The postcards work perfectly with these images that I printed out in wallet sizes. I cut out the center of the postcard and layered it on the reverse side of the Cupid Bullseye designer paper.
This card also uses a Pink Paislee Postcard as well as the Pink Paislee's Cupid Collection's Love Potion designer paper. A fun final touch are the Woolies from BasicGrey's Sugar Rush Collection.
Thanks, Barb for the opportunity to work with such fun goodies! Be sure you stop by and check out Barb's great deals ....FREE ribbon with every $5.00 of Amercian Crafts product purchased! FREE shipping with every $50.00 purchase! Have fun!!
