Scribbles Designs Challenge #21
Counting Sheep...
Have you met Mr. Wool?  Well, over here at Scribbles Designs, we have another beloved character and his name is Mr. Wool.  He also has some friends and they can get up to a lot of mischief.  We are dedicating this month to Mr. Wool and all the other cuddly sheep out there.  So, make sure to include a sheep on your project this month.  One sheep or two, it is completely up to you!

Go Forth & Eat Cake...



I've had Mr Wool and the Go Forth quote printed out for awhile and thought it was perfect for this challenge...  Mr Wool is an easy and fun image to color and he looks pretty cool on the layered circle themed paper backgrounds, silver accent paper and chrome blingy pearls....ended up being a nice masculine card...

This is the new challenge over at Scribbles Designs... there is also a freebie for you to use plus the Freebie Fridays at the Scribbles Designs Store

Life Goes On...

It's a beautiful day today and the warmth of the sun is so soothing.  I got out for a quick walk around the building (hospital) this morning and the fresh air was wonderful.  I had wished that I could have had Charli with me...  We'll go once we're home from work...

Bug Me Anytime...

It's time again for the
challenge. 

This week's challenge is:
Vehicles
(plus a sentiment)


Bug Me Anytime...


A fun image from Doodle Pantry called Classic Bug colored with copics.  I normally wouldn't use blue and brown but thought it perfect for this card.  I had some printed papers and a collection from my ever growing paper stash.
I added some sparkle swirls and a button with the sentiment to finish it.

What's New With Ewe?

It's time again for the
challenge. 

Scribbles Designs Challenge #20
Animal Planet...

Rabbits, cats and foxes, oh my!  Our world wouldn't be the same without all the wonderful species of animals in it and many of our lives wouldn't be the same without our pets keeping us company.  This month we want to see an animal on your creation.  Whether wild or domestic it doesn't matter; as long as it has fur, feathers, or fins, it qualifies.  So, take a walk on the wild side and show us what you've got.

What's New With Ewe?



I've had a couple of images printed onto vellum... I enjoy the copic marker effects of it but then I run into how do I showcase it on a card that it is vellum?  I thought this kind of flag effect might work with some gel circles to accent the one side.  The card is a 5"x5" with an DP accent strip on the one side with the hand lettered sentiment and a wood button & twine bow to finish.

Life Goes On...

Seems like my world spins a little crazy at times.  Seems like I have little or no direction at times. Seems like I shut myself down to survive at times. I have a terrible habit of not communicating, for thinking I've communicated...ugh....I get my ars in some kind of trrr-ouble at times...


I find that sometimes though I say too much... argh!

Thought for the day...

Life is like a merry-go-round.  It is full of ups and downs, sometimes you feel like you're just going in circles, but when the ride ends, you want to do it again!

Butterfly & Cupcake Happy Birthday...

It's time again for the
challenge. 

This week's challenge is:
Shaker Card 
(plus a sentiment)


Butterfly Happy Birthday...


I enjoyed working with the Cutting Cafe's cutting files!  I used the Butterfly one first... I love the shape!  You know when you make a card and it just doesn't have the mojo for you?  This one was it... The recipient loved the card so I guess that's what matters most, right?
I added a line of very tiny green stickers around the entire butterfly and a vertical stripe as well.  I ended up using Glossy Accents over both stickers to ensure that they stayed put.  By adding the accent papers boxes, the Happy Birthday and some pearl embellishments, 
it was done!


Entered into....



Happy Birthday....


My second card was using the Cupcake pattern... this was fun and it turned out pretty cute.  Adding the Happy Birthday tag with a fuzzy brad 
to finish it off.

Life Goes On...

Whoosh!  That was pretty well my week... Whoosh!  That was pretty well my days off...

WE had always wanted to challenge ourselves to walk to a movie.  We live higher up on the mountain/hill side and had always challenged ourselves to do it, so on Friday evening we set out for the 6km walk thru a local park to down town and then after the movie the 6km walk back.  ahem.... it was downhill going, so yeah, you guessed it, uphill back.  I'm not in too bad of shape but boy oh boy the main road up to our home is steep!  You drive it and it is deceiving... Boyd headed back thru the park ( it was uphill all the way) I headed across and then uphill and he picked me up with the vehicle while I was coming up.  I was glad to see Boyd!  We both did about the same distance but his route was definitely harder....

Thought for the day...

Life's like a movie.  Write your own ending...

I'm smilin' at the camera...

Special Challenge - Pitter Patter Paws in our house....

Hi everyone.... there's a special challenge going on over at the Scribbles Designs Challenge...

It's to celebrate welcoming Charli into our home ..He is a blonde American Cocker Spaniel and I'm thrilled to be able to introduce you all to Charli.

Here's the photos and the challenge organized by Ms Lisa...

(3 months old)

(5 months old)
How could you not love that face?!  To celebrate his addition into Sandy and Boyd's family, and by extension into the Scribbles Family, we are having a special challenge (in addition to our regular monthly one) featuring Sandy's adorable kitten and puppy images.  There are currently seven images featuring kittens and puppies.  Check them out...
#415 Puppy Pea Pod

#413 Kitten Pea Pod
Whether you are into puppies or kittens, you'll love the new images.  Having just been born, these two are as cute as can be and perfect on any card to welcome a new puppy or kitten to someone's family!



#417 Dog Bone
Good Dog!  Puppies need to chew and I've never met a puppy or dog that isn't happy chewing on a bone.  This little pup is no exception!  I wonder where he plans on burying it when he is finished with it...
#842 Dog House
If you love your puppy you'll make sure that he has the best in homes.  Since puppies need to spend lots of time outdoors, it is important to provide suitable housing.  Check out this set up--three star accommodations, I'd say.  This particular dog house should be written up in Modern Dog Magazine or even in The Bark.  What pup wouldn't be happy lounging in this beautifully constructed home?!

#416 Dog Wash
Puppies with their boundless energy tend to get dirty as they begin to explore their new surroundings.  So make sure you have the right equipment to keep your puppy clean.  Bathing can be fun but it can also be a bit messy so make sure you have the area draped with a tarp and lots of towels at the ready.  Of course, I would have liked to have seen Sandy draw a picture of a cat in a tub.  I'm afraid there'd be no smiling, the cat would look like a drowned rat, and it would probably be hanging from the shower curtains, but it would still be fun to see!

#414 Puppy in Bowl
#412 Kitten in Bowl
Cute, furry, and hungry!  Keeping your new puppy or kitten well fed is also very important and you want to be sure that you start him or her off right.  Puppies and kittens grow very fast and it is important to provide the proper nutrition to help build strong bones, teeth, and muscle, and of course supply them with all the energy they need for play and learning.  Of course, you'll also need to teach your new pet that it is the food that goes in the bowl and not him or her.

Clicking on any of the watermarks above will take you to their location within the store.

So many digitals, so many possibilities!
So there you have it, seven absolutely adorable images.  Now here is the best part.  If you agree to participate in this special challenge, you get to choose one of the above listed images, absolutely for free BUT you must then use this image on the project that you submit for the challenge.   Want to join in?  Well, if your answer is yes then please email me at: scribblesdesigns_winclaims {at} outlook {dot} com (or by clicking HERE to bring the address up in your email program) with the subject Pitter Patter Challenge Image Request and I'll send you a copy of the image you requested (I'll do my absolute best to send out the image within 24 hours).  Then use this image to enter the challenge.  You can find out all the rules and prize information a little further down in this post.

Know of anyone expecting to add a sweet little baby animal to their family?  Need to create a thank you card for someone who has or will be looking after your own pet?  Or, dog-gone-it, just send someone a card telling them how much you appreciate them, no bones about it!  There are lots of ways to use any of these fantastic images.  In fact, some of our awesome talented Design Team members have put together some projects to help get your creative juices flowing...

Rules...

Just like in all challenges, there are a few rules to follow:
  • You must request and use the designated image.  Limit of one image request per person.
  • You are allowed to link up a total of three creations. Each one must have one of the designated images listed above and each one must be a different project in a different post.  Now if it happens that you already have one of these images, you could create and enter with a project using the image you requested, and you could create and enter with a project using one of the designated images you already own.  Just remember that you are limited to three link ups overall.
  • You can create any type of project (card, scrapbooking page, tag, etc.) as long as it uses one of the designated images.
  • You are welcome to combine your entry with other challenges.
  • Please link your project post to the challenge blog, not your entire blog link or I'm afraid we'll never find your entry.
  • Please include a link back to this blog in your entry post.
  • The challenge will be open starting today, August 22nd, and close on Friday, September 12th, at 9:00 p.m. PDT.
  • Please be respectful of Sandy's generosity.  If you request an image, we expect to see you enter the challenge.  Avoid having your name added to our 'naughty list' which will prevent you from being able to participate in future special challenges.

Prizes...

Will you help us celebrate Sandy and Boyd's new addition to the family?  Not only do you get one of the images above just for playing along (a $3.00 value), but one lucky person will receive the new Scribble Doodle Designs Puppy Power Mish Mash 1 Digital Package containing four puppy digis + six puppy themed digital papers...

AND another lucky person will receive $10.00 worth of images from the Scribbles Designs Store.  We may even have some extra prizes for things like 'Best in Show'.  You just never know.

Ooh,  Ooh,  Ooh...wait there is more...
Currently we have our regular monthly challenge going on and this month the theme is 'Animal Planet' where we want to see an animal on your creation.  Therefore, the creation you make to enter the Pitter Patter of Little Paws Challenge can also be entered in our Animal Planet Challenge.  This will mean even more chances to win yourself some Scribbles Designs images.  Wowzers, how is that for extra incentive?  You can check out all the details of our current monthly challenge by clicking HERE.

We really hope that you will be able to join us for this special challenge.  We can't wait to see what you come with using one of these precious images!



Please link up your projects using one of the seven designated images.  Please refer to the rules above for all the details you need to know before entering this challenge.  The Pitter Patter of Little Paws Challenge will close at 9:00 p.m. PST on September 12th.
