I didn't realize that Digi Stamps 4 Joy was having a monthly Christmas Progressive Challenge.
I stumbled onto this knowledge while doing a blog hop at Clear It Out Challenge Blog, which I stumbled onto when I visited Em's blog, one of my new Teammates at Tuesday Throwdown. All of this was in the middle of the night when I should have been sleeping. I have found that the middle of the night is a good time for visiting blogs and leaving some love for my teammates.
By the way, have you joined the fun at Tuesday Throwndown this week?
It's an Anything Goes Challenge.
(I don't mind putting an extra plug in for Tuesday Throwdown this week. It's Design Team A's week to leave comments for all the entrants. I'm on Team B.)
Now where was I going with this????
Oh.. The Christmas Progressive Challenge at Digi Stamps 4 Joy...
You must enter the challenge with the free monthly digi in order to get the next month's free digi. February's freebie is a cute dino. I missed January and didn't want to miss February, too, so I quickly emailed Desire and she was kind enough to send me the digi last night. With just a bit more than a day left before the challenge closed, I got to work on my card first thing this morning.
|(oops, forgot to straighten and crop the photo, sorry, just tilt your head a bit to the left)|
The paper is from my Christmas stash, I used Spellbinders beaded circle dies, a Fiskars corner punch, Darice snowflake embossing folder, markers, and CTMH gems and sentiment stamp.
I followed the current sketch, #80, from the Feeling Sketchy Challenge , although I moved the border strip (I used a Dazzle self adhesive border.) to the top of the card instead of the bottom.
I will be entering my card there
as well as in the
