Sketch Challenge, Belli #53, and The Doubledog Dare Challenge


Good morning everyone!! I had another late night stamping frinzy last night...up till 2:00 AM!! Am I crazy or what!!??!! Sometimes inspiration turns me into a stamping maniac...don't tell anyone!! I wouldn't want my secret to get out!!! Anyway....
I finished a triple challenge card: the sketch challenge on Splitcoast, The Belli challenge #53 to make a Valentine, and the Doubledog Dare challenge hosted by Beverly (beestamper) to use a backside stamp on the front. Now that was a real stinker of a challenge but I finally figured out what I was going to do...see the little hedgehog in the lower right corner...that's one of the stamps I use on the back of my cards...the little sign says Hand Stamped. Whew...glad that one is completed!! You are all welcome to join us in the Double Dare challenge...when uploading your cards, add DDC to the Keywords section on Splitcoast . You can see all the other DDC cards here.
The Belli challenge this week is to make a Valentine. The Belli Challenge was created by Chris (Chrissyd723)Dickinson to inspire us to use the *stuff* lying around our stamping spaces...those long forgotten goodies that we once had to have!! Anyone can play, so get out your scraps, stamps, and embellies!! Check out Chris' blog for details on how to win the challenge!!



This adorable image by Great Impressions was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. I flipped the sketch challenge and used My Minds Eye dp for the layers, Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze for the matting and card base. Ribbon, heart buttons, and my little Hedgie finish it off.
Be sure to visit the Belli Design Team Member's blogs to see the beautiful cards they designed!! You will find lots of awesome ideas!! Remember to check out Chris' blog to see how you can win!! If you upload a card to Splitcoast, be sure to add CBC53 in the keywords section.
Thanks for visiting this morning...I am off to bed. Have a great day and I hope you find time to do a little stamping today!!

What a fun card...that puppy is so cute, and I didn't miss the little hedgie in the corner! I love the colors you put together, and can't believe you can get these results stamping in the middle of the night! I can hardly find myself in the middle of the night (especially with the terrible head cold I have!!) Great job...AGAIN, GF!!
