This week's new challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges is...CHARMS!

Use a charm somewhere on your projects! 

This week I am sponsoring our challenge with 3 digi IMAGES of the winner's choice from
 A CREATIVE NEED. (5 images if you've used one of mine on your winning creation)

30% OFF ALL IMAGES THIS WEEK!! Use code NEWDISCOUNT at checkout.

A Creative Need Digital Images began with a need to express my passion for art in a new way! 
I have been an artist and paper crafter for many years, and have enjoyed many styles of both rubber and digtial stamps, but it was my practical side that led me to using digital images more often in my own creations. I simply love that they can be resized, flipped and printed so easily and they take up no space in my crafting room! I have merged my love of drawing with my need for images by digitizing my
own unique sketches. My drawing style is influenced by everyday moments and natural beauty, with the occasional flare for whimsy! 
I am happy to be on this creative journey; sharing my art as quality digital stamp images with this creative community!

I am pleased and proud to be sponsoring this challenge! Thank you to the design team for their wonderful creations, and best of luck to all the participants!

It's a Bug Graduation

It's a Bug Kinda' Graduation!  Don't you just love this guy and I think this sentiment is Perfection I used some digi paper and a sentiment from Whimsy - I did the PNG file on the background so it looks layered but it's all an "illusion".  Well, maybe not but I'm happy with this - I have a couple nephews graduation so I've been pumping out the grad cards!  I also have 2 nieces graduating!  wow -- it sounds like I have loads and loads of nieces and nephews - but I think it's timing baby!!

Anyway, this was fun!!

It's Black and White!

The theme for this new challenge is "Just Back and White".  In your creations try to use nothing but the two colors.   The Just Some Lines Design Team is anxious to see what you create.

I decided to use the Zoom image - I think he's great!  Look at that turtles face!  I went with black, gray and white - with a few touches of green!  I think this is a fun challenge - I fussy cut the image - as you can see through the letters I guess that's obvious!  Come have fun with us!!  It's black and white baby!

 Don't forget, if you need an image you can drop in at Just Some Lines.  There is bound to be something there you like.
