CDAC Progressive Challenge

Today is the last for me I'm late...for entries for Round #3 In CDAC's Progressive Challenge.   The way this works create a project from the free images, link to the challenge page, and they will send you new images.  Now if you didn't get in on this from the start, don't fear.  For $1 you can purchase the images (there has been at least 3 images per it's a great deal), create a project, link it to the challenge page and you will get the next round of images sent to you.  How fun is that!!! 

My image this round is from Just Inked, who's artist has a group at CDAC.  I love this sunflower and butterfly.  Now I have put this card to use already.  It is going to a friend of mine who is sick.  Here is my card...

Hope to see your projects.

HappiLeigh Scrappin "T" Time Challenge

HappiLeigh Scrappin
"T" Time Challenge

This week is Starla's turn to host the challenge.  And it is all about "T" Time.  This challenge is about anything that starts with the letter "T".  Leigh has lots of images that start with the letter "T".  There are quite a few Tatter images, teapots, teacups, Turtles and Toads just to name a few.

As always if you buy 3 of HappiLeigh's images you get 1 free.  Buy 6 and get 2 free, etc.
And with any purchase you receive Slippy free.  He would look good on all your summer scrapbook pages.  

Let me tell you about the challenge in's and out's.  You can use any image you wish, BUT if you use a HappiLeigh Scrappin image, you get 2 advantages.  First all projects using a HappiLeigh Scrappin images gets put in a separate drawing for prizes.  Secondly, all projects using a HappiLeigh Scrappin image, get 2 entries into the weekly drawing.  So it pays to use a HappiLeigh image. 

Here is my project for this week.  I used the Turtle, who comes with 2 sentiments.  I chose the birthday sentiment. 

It saddens me to say, this will be the last HappiLeigh Scrappin Challenge.  Leigh is now working and doesn't have the time to draw any more.  I will miss the challenges and Leigh's images.  Leigh, love ya.  Once a HappiSister, Always a HappiSister. 

I hope everyone has a great week.  Hope to see your projects!!

Delightful Inspirations Weekly and Saturday Challenge

Progressive and Saturday Challenges

This week's Progressive Challenge image is 'Fall Harvest".  The calendar may say September but the temperature this weekend is going to feel more like October with highs in the 50-60's.  The prefect time to be working on fall projects.

Delightful Inspirations Progressive Challenge is pretty neat.  The first Friday of the month, Faith has a free image.  Use that image in a project by Thursday midnight the following week, link it to Delightful Inspirations challenge page and Faith will send you another free image.  Now if you missed the free image of the month, you can always purchase the current image and get into the fun. 

Here is my card using the Fall Harvest image....

Delightful Inspirations Design Team has a Saturday challenge.  It may or may not fit the Progressive Challenge image of the week...more likely it will not.  But a past freebie always seems to fit it.  This week was back to school. 

Here is my Back to School card....

Thanks for stopping by.

The silver embellishment had green rhinestones on it and I pulled them off and added the turquoise flat back pearls and added them on the scalloped oval framing the image, which I used my Cricut to cut.  I added the ribbon at each corner.
