A few challenges

I made a couple of these yesterday, just wanted to play with dd last night, so didn't get around to posting!

The first one is for Dutch Dare #38 AND for Paper Garden Projects 1st birthday challenge. Dutch dare's challenge was to do something tropical - Dog Gone Stamps had the perfect image for this one! At the Beach was perfect for something tropical - although I usually see a lot more skin at the beach here.

Paper Garden Projects wanted us to use primary colors OR make a funny card - I couldn't think of too many funny things, so used primary colors on this one. Paper garden projects is having a HUGE birthday celebration on their blog - check it out! They will have new challenges each week that you can join in on. Supplies
Stamp: At the Beach (dog gone stamps) Beach days and Sun Rays (Unity - sentiment)
Paper: SU Ballet blue, Riding hood red
Ink: Adirondack pitch black
Copics: R17, E51, RV42, Y21, B02, W-3
Accessories: Nesties, Cuttlebug d'vine swirls embossing folder

The second one used a sketch found on the DGS group on PaperCraft Planet. Jana creates a new challenge each week over in the group. This week was a sketch challenge. I used Nikko smiles (I just got new stamps yesterday - so I had to play today) and some GREAT Basic Grey granola paper.
Stamp: Nikko Smiles (Dog gone stamps)

This card was for the Stamp something challenge this week. Their challenge was to use your "favorites". I used some Basic Grey paper and Unity stamps! Who doesn't love cupcakes either.... Um - I DO Love cupcakes too! I LOVE Unity stamps! They have a great selection of pretty much any style! I love the clean lines and just adorable images they have! I made this one for our property manager's birthday. My daughter LOVES to visit her and when we were there yesterday, she mentioned it was her birthday this week - so dd and I made the cupcake card for her. Abby will LOVE to help me deliver it later this week!
