Giddyup & DT News

Today is a very exciting day for me.  I am showing you my first card as a member of the Design Team for Phindy's Place. I have been a  Phindy Phan since I first joined Paper Craft Planet in January and Phindy invited me to join her group.  It was there I got my first introduction to stamping, specifically using digital stamps.  I also met the most wonderful group of ladies and we chat like sisters every day.

This week the challenge at Phindy's Place Challenge Blog is to make a card for a baby or small child.  I wasn't in the mood to make a baby card this week and when I saw this image, I thought it would give me a chance to work in colour - lots of colour as you can see.  You must use a Phindy image on your project but she has some fabulous images in her store so pop over an pick one up so you can play with us.  There are lots of opportunities to win - a prize is given each week for a random winner and one card is chosen as top pick with a chance to be Guest Designer.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Stamps R Us - All Male Theme
