Uncle Sam's Samantha

Ok, so I know that I should have red, blue and white... but I figure this New Zealand girl can be excused for picking other colours. SO what's this weeks challenge at Sassy Cheryl's I here you ask... DISTRESSING.

I must admit I love the end result with this image Uncle Sam's Samantha".. she reminds me of Cat in the Hat!!! Very quirky.

Pop on over to our fantastic challenge blog, see the other great cards that have been made.

In addition to our random drawing for a gift certificate, we're doing something special. The Sassy Girls will be picking their top three favorites from this week's entries. The three winners will get a special blinkie to post on their blogs.

Princess Pony

For today's challenge, not only Karen Doodles US challenge blog, also it's sister blogs, UK, Netherlands, Scandinavian were shown a picture to draw inspiration from... because it had pinks and greens, of course I choose Princess Pony image to showcase.
If you have 2 girls like I have,,, you will love this challenge. Go check out what the very talented Dt have done and join in the fun.

One card 2 challenges

Hi peeps, I made this card tonight real quick for two challenges. First I followed a sketch at Truly Scrumptious and secondly joined in over at Saturday challenge - pink, green and flowers.
This lovely stamp is from Lily of the Valley sent to me by my bloggy pal Jill.

Cameron's Challenge card!!!

"Well if the younger sister can do it so can I!!!" This is Cameron's take on the sketch at Karens Doodles Kids challenge. One good thing about the girls joining in, is that I get to use up all my old paper, which gives me an excuse to buy more.. the bad thing is... they keep going for my Prima flowers~~~
Later tonight I will have my Karens Doodles Design Team card to show you all. Have a great day.

Bailee's card entry

Yep, Bailee has made her second card for Karens Doodles Kids challenge. After explaining to her how to follow a sketch, I left her with my copics and did my own DT work... she did a pretty good job for a 7 year old!

On a ewwww note.. hubby just called out to me... went outside to see what all the yelling was about.. and Charlie (Burmese cat) our disgraced bird hunter who now wears a bell... was sitting next to a very big rat...ewwwwww... dead of course!! yuck yuck yuck!! He is now coming up to me to smooch and say "see mum... see what I caught!!!" What a good boy!!!I only hope there are no relatives of that dead rat hanging around!

Doodle Palace Guest Designer

I was lucky enough to be chosen as the guest designer over at Doodle Palace this week and have made up a sketch for you to follow for this weeks challenge.
Dee and Robyn were kind enough to put their Design Team last term, which was a big deal to me as it was my very first one I was on and gave me a taste of what design teams are all about... so its fair to say I have a soft spot for these ladies.
Do jump over and join in their challenge, I would love to see what you do with my sketch
