It's 'One for the Boys' Challenge 72 at Send a Smile 4 Kids.

'One for The Boys'

Our wonderful sponsors for this challenge are
who supplied the Design Team with some
 Great Images to play around with.
My first card is from The Paper Shelter
and I used pre coloured digi's
(my favourite kind) I used basic white card stock for my base.
I topped that with paper embossed with Quickutz Polka Dots.
I backed the main image with deep orange paper and popped.
Added a little bit of orange glitter pen to parts of the background
and heat embossed the sand with
Brown Sugar embossing Powder.
My sentiment aloha is from GinaK.

When I saw this image from Jelly Park I immediately thought of
Snoopy and 'The Red Baron'  so had to colour the plane red.
He's such a cute little guy and what better way to have him doing
what Snoopy would have done -
freefalling through the sky and clouds.
 I cut the clouds out of mulberry paper to give them some depth.
I chose these colours too as this card will land up in the USA
and some 'Little Hero' will receive it

Don't forget to check out what the other
Team SAS girls have made.
Hope you will join in on the FUN and send your card
tohelp bring a smile to some sick children.
For information on this please check
Guidelines for Donated Cards.

Our winners will receive from
Jelly Park - 4 Images of your choice
The Paper Shelter - $20 Gift Certificate
Sassy Studio - 4 Images

Thanks for stopping by.

Mod Squad Challenge - case a Designer.

Currently over at the Mod Squad this weeks challenge is
to CASE a designer's card.
You can find the details for this
challenge over at this new blog HERE

The designer that I chose is Cheri Weston
and you can see her card HERE
at Stamp TV.
I used the following products for my card -
Basic card stock
DP from Kaisercraft -  Floral Delight
The tag was a perfect match to the paper so
I decided to use that instead of a stamped sentiment.
Spellbinder - Lotus Die (one I love using even though it is an oldie)
Behind the tag I heat embossed a rose stamp from Gina K
with mauve powder on the mauve paper.
Own ribbon
Added rhinestones in 2 sizes for a little bling to match
the sparkle in the ribbon.

My Purple Poinsettia's

I made this card a little while ago for a Special Girlfriend
 but have never uploaded it for a challenge
as I wanted to keep it for something special.
I found 2 challenges that I would like to enter this card in
They are

where we need to use any shade of Purple (my favourite colour)
and use tape and something with the letters T A P E.
I chose my Poinsettia's.
I wanted to make this card different and found
 this great tutorial below

It is a flower pot card and the top part pulls out
to add your greeting to it.
As this was a personal message I can't show it here.
I changed the size to suit.
I used
Tape with glitter at the very top of the flower pot
 Iridescent mauve card stock
Heartfelt Creations Layered Elegant Swirls
Spellbinders Poinsettia Die & Flourish
MS Punches
Kaisercraft Sparklets
Mini Rhinestones
Marianne Designs Poinsettia
Distress Inks
Own silver ribbon.
Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it
and my girlfriend was delighted too.

Sweet Treats - DCC115 Challenge over at The House

I made this SWEET and SUGARY card for a
colour challenge over at The Outlawz
 and realized it fitted perfectly for the current
Designer's Choice challenge
over at The House that Stamps Built -  HERE.

The fabulous digi is from StichyBearsDigiOutlet.
It was a fun card to make with lots of colour bling and
some balloon embellishments I got as part of a Christmas present.
I added a doily and stand for the cake to sit on.
