Happy Friday everyone....

Well I don't know how your week went but mine was a little productive as I had the chance to make a few extra cards! It was also a frustrating week as far as the blogging world goes as I am still struggling with not being able to cut and paste..... I wouldn't mind but there are some sponsor badges I want to post and a new challenge I just learned about yet I am unable to display their badges. Computers, I tell you....can't live with them (when they have a mind of their own) and can't live without them!! Mind you there's one plus side to hubby just came in to tell me I don't need to cook dinner tonight!! We are going over to his he can try to fix their computer!!!!!

Ok enough about that, on to the fun things.....first my card which I made for the Pink Elephant Challenge. It's another Dustin Pike image that I already had colored in and it's my first try at this challenge. I colored the puppy in copics and used DCWV Christmas paper from last years stash, then added some ribbon and blue gems from Martha Stewart and that's it. What do you think?

Over at Midnight Madness we have our new DT Diva for the month of September and I would like to say a huge WELCOME to Carol, who not only shares my love of chocolate and teddy bears but who is so very talented. She will definately be an asset to us so please join me in welcoming her. It is so exciting to work alongside other designers and this month Melissa Bova did a tremendous job with her creations and helping the DT out. So a huge a THANK YOU goes out to Melissa. Remember if you are interested in being a Midnight Madness Diva or Dude (for those wonderful creative males we have out there), please stop by Priscilla's blog and let her know you would like to be considered!

There are lots of exciting things coming up at both my DT's so stay tuned for that!

The new challenge blog I was referring to earlier is Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential and this should be a great challenge site. Vicki aka basement stamper is the DT coordinator over it's sure to be fun and exciting. I wish I could display their badge for them!! Anyway, go check it out......just click on the name and you will be sent directly there!

Until then, I wish you all a fabulous weekend!
Hugs, Charlotte
