The first something special is happening over at Paperworks Co Blog there is a special Summer Challenge with an animal theme it is running from 15th to 18th August. The something special is that the challenge comes in four parts, one theme for each day, and is open to teams of four. That means one person from the team as their own project to do then the PWCO DT choose the best of each project to be shown on the blog for people to vote for. The winning team will get an amazing prize. If I have not explained it so you can understand please pop over and have a look.
I am in the Chi Chi Memories Team and I was given the sketch below to work with and is the challenge for 15th August.
Here is my card that I created. The shape I managed to do myself with a bit of perseverance a few hot flushes and biting of the lips lol. I wanted something a bit softer in colour so chose this colour theme. I have used an image from the fabulous new set of digi images from Chi Chi Memories this one is called Always by Your Side and features Freddie the Elephant and Little Ted. I have added some flowers, ribbon and sentiment I actually flipped the sketch to fit the image.

SOMETHING SPECIAL NO: 2
Today there is a new Animal Challenge starting at
Stamping Vacation the theme is 'Animals with Beaks'
This is my first DT card and I have used a wonderful happy image from Delicious Doodles. I had my eye on this one for so long after seeing cards made by Teri, who is the owner of DD, I was so inspired and fell in love with this little duo.
I have coloured them with promarkers and layered them three times for extra impact. I used SU bp, card candy and a Die Cut Heart which I found while sorting through my stash. I added some wired edged ribbon and decided to make a couple of flowers with the left overs I used brads for the centres, I also added some card candy, the little tag I got recently in the sale from Craftwork Cards.
This is showing a side view of the three layers.
A closer look at the love birds.
If you have never visited Stamping Vacation then I can recommend this challenge blog as it is so different from any other that I have found.
There is a new challenge each day and you have a month to complete your project, the challenges are listed in date order in the left hand sidebar and you will see the closing dates, there is so much choice and no pressure you also get entered into the monthly $25 draw.
If you pay a visit and become a follower can you please leave a comment to let Denise know that I sent you.
