Dirty Girl Challenges!!!

Hello my stampin' friends!!!

Hope life is treating you well and you are staying cool in this tropical heat wave?!? My family and I went furniture shopping yesterday. Our oldest daughter needed a new bedroom suite and I'm so happy to say that after looking  f-o-r-e-v-e-r  we found something she really liked - praise the Lord!!! By the time we came home I was so exhausted I had to take a long nap!!! This heat  is really getting to me!!! Today I'm refreshed and I actually had some *me* time ....wahooo!!!



I'm just lovin' all the fun Dirty Girl Challenges over at SCS. My friend Denise is hosting a fun *girly* challenge ~ DTGD10peanutbee and of course I had to play along!!!  I combined this card with a few other DTDG Challenges ~ the Sketch is from DTGD10rainy - Sketch ( I actually flipped it around), the colors are inspired by DTGD10JeanneS, I'm using the *white* enforced theme from DTGD10rsalamon, I'm showing off my brand spankin' new PI girl  called *Make mine a Double* ~ which was inspired by Denise and DTGD10gbedwright and then I finished it off with the DTGD10craftycaro. Okay...I'm dizzy now...LOL!!!

The DP is from the BasicGrey Nook &Pantry Collection. I also used Yoyo Yellow CS, some Red/White Gingham Ribbon and two Large Silver Brads. The PI girl was inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers ~ E00, E000, R17, G14, Y15 and Colorless Blender.

Hope you find some time to join the DTGD Challenges this week??? Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your evening!!! Hugs ~S~

Ahhh, this card is the cutest! We haven't really had the heat wave over here that you all have had. This week we are getting to the low 80's, but earlier it was mid 70's!!

My remodel is still plugging along. I am making time to do a couple cards today. Wish me luck, my mojo is in slow-mo!! Hugs,

Totally adorable image, Silke, and fabulously coloured. Love the gingham ribbon too :D Way to go on the DTGD challenges - feel free to do a few for me LOL (I'll swim a few laps in the pool for you in return!)

Glad you found a bedroom suite for your daughter. Can only imagine what you went through! I'm jealous you are able to start counting sleeps till school starts...we have six more weeks to go.
