Hop Over to the TPE Blog for the details on this week's super fun sketch!!

Our sponsor this week is

Thanks Jodie for sharing your adorable stamps with us!!


Die Cuts R Us

This week the DCRU Design Team is challenging you to use your left overs...BUT...there 
is a catch...you can't make it look like a Valentine!!
That's Right... create a
Not so Valentine from Valentine Leftovers
Hey...they don't call it a challenge for nothing!!
The Design Team worked with My Mind's Eye - Be Loved Collection.  The great thing about this paper collection is it's versatility.  It was perfect for all those Valentine Love Cards, but is beyond perfect when it comes to being usable for other occasions, events and theme!!

Pictured below is DCRU's 6x6 paper sampler pack; this week's sampler pack features Be-Loved papers...yes again, but with a new paper combination. Looks more like everyday paper now, doesn't it?

A great base and/or accessory for the Be Loved Collection is

The Pink Elephant #54


(Sweet and Simple...Use Ribbon)

is our super fabulous sponsor!!
I was sooo happy when my Mom told me that we get to use C.C. Designs Stamps again!!
They are some of my TOP 3 Favorites....Right behind my Mom's Stamps, but if my Mom 
didn't have her own stamps, then C.C. Designs would be my #1 Favorite!!!

I thought they looked like me, my little brother, Landon and Little Sister Ella, 
so I colored them that way!!

DCRU - Challenge 23

Who doesn't have a sweet tooth this time of year? I'm sure with all the Valentine candy out there, that most of us have had a sugar rush by now. This week's challenge is dedicated to a sugar rush, a Basic Grey Sugar Rush that is.

The entire line of Basic Grey Sugar Rush products are available at the Die Cuts R Us Store.

Today's challenge is a color challenge. Use the colors of the Basic Grey Sugar Rush buttons to create a project, LO, or card. You have until Sunday at Midnight (est) to leave the direct link with Mr. Linky. If you choose to upload to SCS (or any other gallery) please include DCRU as your keyword.

Ready to see the colors for this week's challenge:

The Pink Elephant #52

All About Pink - In Honor of Ella

Our Fabulous Sponsor this week is:

The design team got to work with some of the digital stamps the were created by our very own
Robin Willis for Squigglefly.
A randomly drawn winner from one of this week's participants will win 2 free digis of their choice from Robin's collection.

Here are my DT Cards:
Valentine Sweetheart
Sweet Cupcake
I had fun coloring Ms. Robin's Digis.  We have been sick at my house. 
When i was feeling better than my Mom, I took the pictures of all our cards.  
They are a little crooked but I will practice and get better.
