Totally Papercrafts - Animals

It's me sneaking in just a tad (!!) late this week with this week's Totally Papercrafts challenge. This is one of my favorites because the theme is "Animals" - which means I can use a doggie image. Yay! :) Our sponsor this week is DigiStamp Boutique so I used one of the May releases, Toby and Tobias. I hope Toby & Tobias are secure in the masculinity because I used a ton of PINK in my card for this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge (Pink and Green). :)

Head on over to the Totally Papercrafts blog to check out the other DT gals' work. Then be sure to participate in the challenge for your chance to win some of your own cute digi images from  DigiStamp Boutique!

Totally Papercrafts Sketch

Guess what? It was my turn this week to host the Totally Papercrafts sketch! I created this fun little sketch to use in your card or other project this week:

Our sponsor this week is the adorable Meljen's Designs. I used this cute little crab image for my card. It's a birthday card for my sister, whose astrological sign is Cancer the crab and who is also known (especially by her big sister) to be a bit of a crab. ;-)

Here's the inside. I just typed it up on my computer and printed it out. I don't normally decorate the inside of my cards, but I have to admit that it was fun and does add a nice finishing touch to your card.

That's enough blabbering from me! :) Head on over to Totally Papercrafts to check out this week's DT cards and get the particulars for playing along. Can't wait to see your cards this week!

No Girls Allowed!

This week's challenge at Totally Papercrafts is definitely one for the guys. In fact - "No Pesky Girls" are allowed! Our sponsor this week is Alota Rubber Stamps. Alota Rubber Stamps is offering a generous $20 gift certificate to the winner of this week's challenge, so be sure to play along!

This was a bit of a tough challenge for me, as the mom of two girls and self-admitted lover of girly things like the color pink. Fortunately, Sally-Ann of DigiStamp Boutique came to my rescue with this cute new Funtime Dan offer.

My layout is based on this week's sketch from Card Positioning Systems:

I had been looking for the large dot Cuttlebug folder for forever. I finally found it (on sale!) at a few weeks ago. It was a lot of fun to use it with some DCWV cardstock and then sand it to expose the white core. Cool!

Be sure to check out the other Totally Papercrafts DT members' cards and leave them a nice comment if yo have time. :) Then play along for your chance at the $20 gift certificate from Alota Rubber Stamps!
