Ahoy Matey

The challenge this week at Delightful Challenges is all about Sun, Sea and Sand.  I would certainly love to have some of that right now because it is only just starting to warm up here but we are expecting rain and my trip to Cuba is a distant memory.

Today the new release images are available at the Digital Delights by Louby Loo store and they are all about pirates.  I have created a little scene with Presley the Pirate but I feel it isn't finished so I must issue a disclaimer because I haven't done justice to this adorable image.  My hip is acting up again so sitting for long periods isn't happening right now and I could not spend more time with Presley.  Since this is the third time in six months that I have been having issues, the doctor is booking an MRI but it could take another six months for that to happen, so stay tuned.  In the meantime I will take pain killers, try to exercise and carry on.

The sponsor of this week's challenge is Simon Says Stamp and they are generously offering a $20 gift certificate to their store as the prize for the random winner.

The Design Team will be choosing their top three picks with the top pick getting the opportunity to be a Guest Designer.
