365 Cards - Day 79 & D2D Challenges reminder!

Aloha and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday at 365 Cards and Designed2Delight! First up is my sample for today's challenge at 365 Cards which is to make some "Fabulous Fringe" for your card out of ribbon! I got this fun digital image and sentiment from DRS Designs to use and of course the green grosgrain ribbon is a perfect "faux" grass too! I colored it up with Copics and used some wonderful SU! Riding Hood Red DSPs. I think this will make a perfect Father's day card! Here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. A Spoon Full of Sugar - anything goes
2. Catch The Bug Challenge Blog - polka dots & stripes
3. City Crafter Challenge Blog - Stripes and polka dots
4. Critter Sketch Challenge Blog - hip to be square
5. Eat Sleep Stamp - sketch
6. Lexi's Creations - spots and/or stripes
7. Mami Doodles: Digital Stamps - spots and/or stripes
8. Paper Issues - summer
9. One Stitch At A Time Challenge - anything goes
10. Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge - anything goes
11. Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog - texture
12. SEW MANY CHALLENGES - anything goes
13. Stamp Something - anything goes

Next up is my reminder creation for this week's D2D challenges. Hum, you're probably wondering how did I combine the "Skater Boy" image and making a flower?!? Well, I'm glad that you asked! So I took the head from the "Flutterby Fairy" that we used a couple of weeks ago and attached it to the "Skater Boy"! Now I have a super cute "Skater Girl"!!! Then it was just a matter of coloring her up with my copics, making a flower out of distressed circle punches and adding some punched tags for the sentiment! So here she is!
So here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. Anything Goes Challenge Blog - BINGO!!: mine is die cuts, flowers, and ribbon
2. Birthday Sundaes - birthday card with at least 3 circles
3. Claudia & Company - birthday card for a girl
4. Craft your passion challenges - cutie patootie
5. CREATIVE BELLI BLOG - the letter "S": mine is "SKATER GIRL"
6. Creative Card Crew - cute and girly
7. Delightful challenges - flowers
8. Do it with Digis - sassy & sparkly + digi
9. Do you Stack up - add a tag
10. Drunken Stampers - numbers: kinda hard to see but I used the number 8 in my sentiment and it's on her shirt
11. Everybody-Art-Challenge - tag
12. Fairy Fun Friday - for the girls
13. i{heart}2stamp - sketch
14. Karens Doodles Challenge Blog - bold and bright
15. Paper Pretties - flowers
16. Papertake Weekly Challenge - fancy a punch: edge punch and jewelry tag punch
17. Pixie Dust Studio Pixie Challenge - make it shiny: is used green metallic paper for one of the layers...if you look closely you can see my hand in the reflection!
18. Raise The Bar - green apple and oranges
19. Really Reasonable Ribbon - anything goes + ribbon
20. Sentimental Sundays - handmade flowers + sentiment
21. Stamps R Us - digital images
22. The Corrosive Challenge Blog!! - birthday
23. The Sisterhood of Crafters - Let it shine!
24. Wags ‘n Whiskers - circles: that's what I used to make my flower
25. Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - punches: see above

Whoa, 2 very creative cards! Daddy Jim will love his Father's Day card and it is so fitting this year! (Maybe adding a few raindrops over the lawnmower would make it more realistic!)

Love the Skater Girl, how ingenious of you to mix 2 digies to make a new one. I bet Faith likes it too!

And what a lot of challenges! Believe me, I know from personal experience how many challenges!

Have a great day. I know I will, no 3rd grade lunch duty today! Love, SAM aka MOM
