Baby Card!

I had so much fun making this card and I think it might be my best one yet! Still new so putting an idea together is still a bit difficult for me.
I was wanting to get this card done in time for The Color Throwdown #57 but I am a day late...snooze you lose I guess!
I am still able to enter this card into multiple challenges.

First Template Project!

I can't tell you how excited (and scared) I was to find a challenge that used a template. I have always wanted to try one but thought I couldn't do it without some sort of instructions...but lo' and behold I did and I think it turned out quite nice!
It is a bank for my hubby (highwayman). He always puts his change on the table right where we eat and it drives me he asked me a few weeks ago for a holder. This was just the ticket...I even got his started and put all his change in there! :) This was so fun to make so go on over and check out the Create4Fun Challenge #35 here.

First digi stamp card!

This is my very first attempt at using a digi stamp. I got it free (now I can't remember where)..I downloaded a bunch of free ones from someplace so if you recognize this one or any other that I may use in the future please let me know where they came from!! I'm not really sure how I feel about this card....I was trying to follow a sketch and not sure I like how I did the burst in the corner...but it is what it is I suppose and I'll move onto something else. Also, can someone tell me how exactly a digi stamp is supposed to be cut out? All those little grooves are very hard to cut without ripping!!
I am entering this into multiple challenges and as always thank you for all your nice comments!
