Craft Us Crazy Challenge starts today & my DT card...

I am soooo excited to tell you about our brand new bi-weekly Challenge blog CRAFT US CRAZY that starts TODAY. YAY! I am so very honored to be on the Design Team. YAY again! Each challenge will give you two whole weeks to complete your project that fits the theme. Our first challenge theme is ANYTHING GOES.....easy peasy! Our sponsor is Digital Delights. The winner of this challenge will receive their choice of 3 Digital Stamps. How cool is that!

Digital Delights is a magical place filled with little digi creations from all walks of life. They have a wide range of digital stamps which are delivered straight to your email 24/7! In addition they also have a growing range of "Delightful Piecings" which are paper pieced files designed to be used with your cutting machines or for hand cutting. Fancy a new blog makeover, header or new watermark, then stop by their sister site Delightful Custom blogs.

Digital Delights so generously gave me this darling little 'Ducky Dilly & Ladybug' digi to play with. Don't you just love his cute little Ladybug Valentine. They were so much fun to color with my Copic markers. I had never colored a duck or grass before.....not since Kindergarten with my crayons it was a bit of a challenge for me at first.....but once I started.....Ducky Dilly's personality just came to life. LOL (btw...the Copics I used are listed at the bottom of this post.)

The sentiment on my card is from Create with TLC's cute little set "Love you like a duck loves water". Isn't that just the perfect little saying for this card. Paulette has a lot of cute Valentine images & sentiments for your Valentine cards.

Our new Challenge blog will also have Monthly Sponsors. At the end of each month all of our Top 3's (chosen from each challenge) will go into a drawing to win a special prize from our Monthly Sponsors. This month our Sponsors are The Cutting Cafe and Stamps Alive.

The Cutting Cafe's prize package is Three stamp sets of their choice.

Stamps Alive!'s prize package will be a Spellbinders Nestabilities set.

Card recipe:
Copics: Y00, Y11, Y13, YR20, YR21, YR24, R20, R21, R22, R24, W00, W3, W5, W7, G20, G21, G24
DP: NitWits
Classic Scalloped Heart Nesties
Stardust Stickles
