Challenge; Challenge

Today is a CHALLENGE'ing Day. I want to encourage you to participate in two challenges - the ABC Challenges (All Beautiful Cards) and the MelonHeadz Challenge, a brand new challenge.


Here's the card I made for ABC Challenges:




Because Patty (the owner of ABC Challenges) has a birthday this week, as well as her husband and her youngest daughter, she selected a BIRTHDAY CARD theme for this week's challenge.



January 21 - 27

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Patty (& family members)!





I liked the scrunched look of the ribbon treatment. Here's a close up view...








Here's the inside:



Be sure to participate in the Birthday Card challenge at ABC Challenges this week.


Now... as I told you, I have another challenge to tell you about. It's the MelonHeadz Challenge, and it's super easy. All you have to do for this challenge is use a digi somewhere on your card/project.


I used two adorable FREEBIE MelonHeadz images to create my card.




Isn't he cute?






The other image I used is inside my card:



Be sure to check out all the details on the MelonHeadz Challenge and play along; there will be a PRIZE given to one lucky participant. YAY!!!


These two cards are # 23 and 24 in the 100 Cards in 100 Days Challenge.

You're cards always amaze me. I've never thought of doing that ribbon treatment - now I'll have to give that a whirl. Love how you always take the time to make the inside of the cards as special as the outside. Love the puppy image too...way too cute!

The birthday card is oh-so-sweet!! Of course I love the little bird on her shoulder!!! The floral DP panel with the scrunched ribbon is very, very pretty! The scrunched ribbon shows off it's silky lusciousness! (is that even a word? LOL) Very, very pretty!

The MelonHeadz doggie is adorable! Love that DP and the paw brads! The doghouse inside is too dang cute for words! Great job on the challenges and the 100 cards in 100 days!
