Delightful Challenges - Gift Giving Susie (Sad News, Delightful Challenges is Closing)

I am sad to say, this will be my last post for Delightful Challenges! Delightful Challenges is closing! Wendy is inviting me to stay on her Digital Delights Team and I will post every other Wednesday along with my DT sister Jane once Digital Delights starts back up at the beginning of next year!  It was decided to close the challenge site to devote more time to Digital Delights by Louby Loo designs. Digital Delights by Louby Loo will NOT be going anywhere and will continue to bring you fun and exciting daily posts and new designs.

The challenge for this week is; "Celebrate"! Lets make this a big participation time! Come join in and post your wonderful creations! :)
This here is Gift Giving Susie! She of course can be found at Digital Delights By Louby Loo! She also comes pre colored, if you don't wish to color! Wendy has loads of wonderful cut files as well as all of her digis! She always seems to have great sales, so be sure to check it out!
We wish to thank everyone who has joined in our weekly challenges and hope that you will all stop by each week and see all the amazing designs on the digital delights blog and at www.digitaldelightsbyloubyloo.com

Delightful Challenges- Flurry The Snowman

Wow, do you believe we are only a few more weeks until Christmas! :)
Hi y'all, it's time for another Delightful Challenges! This week the challenge is; "Bundle Up" (Winter Theme)!
I thought I would do something a little bit different this week on my card! I opened the back to stand! I also used my Brayer to create the background!
I am using Flurry The Snowman from Digital Delights By Louby Loo!

I didn't know it, but if you order Flurry the Snowman in JPEG form, he doesn't come with all the detailing on the scarf, hat, and coat! I was totally fine with it though because I always like adding a little bit of detailing myself! He will look like this if you order him in PNG form! He is cute either way! :)
Counting down until Christmas! If you are in need of some cute digis to finish off making those Christmas cards, Digital Delights by Louby Loo really has some really cute images! Go check it out here! Come participate this week also! :)
Hugs, and happy crafting!
Sandy.

Ice Skating Fun

Every time the weather takes a little turn and gets colder here in Texas, I have know problem making a winter scene! ;) Today happens to be another cold day!
Today I am sharing a card that I made for Digi My World! I am using one of the digis found at the Digi My World Store called, Winter Kids 2!
It comes with 6 different winter kids!  They are perfect for making Christmas cards, and winter scenes!  I have already used the little snowboarding guy this year!

Happy Wednesday!

Today I am here to share with you some of the new digis that just came out at the Digi My World Store! The Penguin Trio, and Polar Bear Ice Cap!

There has been a hand full of new digis, so you will want to go and check it out!
Hugs, and Happy Crafting!

My Sheri Crafts Challenge- #147- Oh Christmas Tree

This will be our last challenge for this year at My Sheri Crafts! The challenge, (by my good friend Sue, and DT sister) is, put a tree on your card/project!
I just love Sheri Baldy digis! I always love using one of her images when I can! The trees are from Spellbinder, called Holiday Trees! The stamp is from All Night Media, called Merry Christmas! I used Martha Stewart, Arctic Snowflake!I topped the trees off with Liquid Applique, white! I love coloring the image with my Copics! The bells have Stardust- Gelly Roll- Galaxy,  yellow glitter gel pen! The stamp is all in one and I didn't want all one color on the sentiment, the holly leaves, and the bow! So, I whipped out my markers and colored the stamp with the colors I wanted to use! My daughter taught me that, believe it or not! You kind of have to be quick before the marker dries on the stamp, but it works pretty well!
Anyway, I hope we get lots of participants this go around!
Hope to see you there!
Hugs, and happy crafting!
Sandy.

Delightful Challenges- You're a Gem

Hi there,

This weeks challenge at Delightful Challenges is to add bling! 
The image is called, Reindeer Ride Saffi! You talk about an adorable digi! I just LOVE her! I don't know if you can tell by the picture, but the snow and Reindeer Ride Saffi are on the outside of the card, and the trees are on the inside! There is another image similar to this called, Christmas Saffi! She is just as precious! If you have a chance, go and check out the images at Digital Delights by Louby Loo!

Hugs, and happy crafting!
Sandy.
