Good Morning!
Are you ready for a color challenge? Over at Doodle Dragon Studios that's what we have for you today, to create something with one of Dustin's images using the colors Red, Yellow and Orange. For my card I used one of Dustin's new images from his Blogiversary set which you can find HERE! I chose this image for my son, his 2nd grade year is almost over and it has literally zoomed by so fast that this was the most perfect image to use. He has done such an incredible job with his grades, been on the honor roll the entire year and so far has perfect attendance! So I wanted to congratulate him on having a great year! 
I colored Dudley in copics, sponged the sky area then added some glaze to the race car and goggles. The dp is from DCWV Grade School stack, ribbon from Michael's.
I hope you join us this week for the color challenge, come along and have some fun!
Have a great day!

Good Morning and Happy Sunday!
Happy Earth Day today too!
Over at Dustin's place we are having a challenge - "Outdoors". See what you can come up with using one of Dustin's images with an outdoor theme. For my contribution I chose one of Dustin's new images, this cute frog hanging out on his hammock. Kind of where I'd like to be right now, over the water in a hammock doing nothing at all! Not that I'll have the chance to do that but it's worth dreaming about!
As Dustin is also celebrating his 3rd Anniversary this week you might want to check out his site if you haven't already. He's got some awesome offerings, including this 77 images for a mere $10.00
Click HERE and go get it before it's too late.....Today is the last day to grab this deal! 
Soooo, whatc'ha waiting for? Hop on over and get these fabby images. 
Have a great day!

Happy Easter!
I'm sure most of you are enjoying your Easter celebrations and making the most of this special day. Over at Pike's Playground we are having another challenge and we want you to -Make us smile! Use any of Dustin's images and produce a project that would put a smile on someone's face. I used this fabby dragon image with his tail in flames coz as soon as I saw it it made me laugh! I can't take credit for the sentiment, I'd seen it somewhere on the internet and figured it fit my card for this challenge.  
I picked the cupcake dp and chocolate colors to go along with it as it's Easter weekend and the thought of chocolate covered dragons sounded pretty good....or would you rather chocolate bunnies instead? In England we have such great Easter eggs, hollow chocolate with delicious goodies inside but I've not been able to find them over here and if anyone was to send one over from the UK, customs would have a field day with them!
Anyway, enough chocolate talk, I'm getting hungry! Hope you'll join us this week for this fun challenge and don't forget to check out my DT sisters creations.  
Have a great week!

She has some really pretty flowers, contemporary artwork and some lovely, cute little critters too! Lori has a special going on right now that if you purchase one digi, then email her the photo of what you create with it, she'll give you another digi image for equal or lesser value for free! That's a great deal if you ask me! You can also check her out on facebook too! 
My project was actually made from a paper bag which I folded half way up and made into a pocket which holds the tag and could also fit a gift card for a special someone. The image is colored with copics, decorated edge and butterfly were done with Martha Stewart punches, flourishes completed using ink and a stencil from Layers of Color, flowers and lace were from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by today! Don't forget to stop on over at Midnight Madness and join in with the sketch  challenge this month...just remember you have the entire month to play!

Good morning fellow crafters.. how's your weekend going so far? Are you ready to join the Doodle Dragon Studios team with our next challenge? Sure hope so coz today we are asking you to make something using one of Dustin's Dudley images! Yep that's right, today "it's a Dudley Kinda Day" challenge. So pick out your favorite Dudley and go create something with it. 
My creation was made for some special firefighters here in Miami (Station 3), who were so wonderful with my son's class. We went on a field trip to the fire station and the tour they gave us was so awesome, the children all had such a great time and learned so much. This was a special unit with some members having been in New York to help with the 9/11 rescue mission, and that's why I chose to go there over all the other stations. Sometimes we take for granted what these firefighters and paramedics do, but when you see first hand what their job entails, you find a new appreciation for them. These are our true heroes for sure, so for all of you who know a firefighter, go give them a hug and thank them for what they do for us. Putting their lives at stake in order to keep us safe!  
I colored fire fighter Dudley in copics and used dp from DCWV All About Boys. The ribbon was from my stash.  
Here's the inside of my card. I wanted to keep it simple as it was for a bunch of guys. LOL 
So here's another big Thank You to Station 3 in are the best! 
Don't forget to stop by Pike's Playground to come check out the DT's Dudley creations. 
Have a great day!

Howdy folks! 
Are you ready for another Pike's Playground challenge? This one should be a fun one as we are asking you to make something with a Dustin image with the challenge "My life is a zoo!" Let's see how creative you can get with this one! I decided to use Dustin's cupcake monkey which I've had printed up for a while already and as many people make the New Year's resolution to lose weight I thought this would be a fun card with those perfect images. Te he! 
I've made another card with this Z-fold design which you can find at Beccy's Place and I have to say I love how it turned out. 
This is the first cupcake monkey image, you see the cupcake complete and the monkey seems so excited to see it. 
The second image shows little monkey with fat cheeks after munching on the cupcake! 
and finally little monkey feeling awfully full after finishing off a good portion of the cupcake! I'm sure we've all felt like that at some point of time, right! 
I colored the images with copics, used some paper glaze to give shine to the icing on the top. The dp is from Making Memories Simply Fabulous Maddi Narrow Stripe and Maddi Paisley. Ribbon is from Micheal's and little gems from JoAnn's Fabrics.
I hope you'll come along and play with us this challenge. 
Thanks for stopping by today!

Good Morning and Happy March to you all! I can't believe we're already starting the 3rd month of the year, where did Jan. and Feb. disappear to? Over at Midnight Madness we have another sketch for you and this one is good for the whole month, so you've got plenty of time to play along with us. For my project this time I decided to alter a little notebook that I've had for a while. It wasn't very exciting to look at and needed a little tlc! I love how it turned out and this is definately one of my favorite images from Priscilla.

You are welcome to submit up to four projects using the sketches provided as a guide. We may add some fun twists with themes too. The themes are merely for inspirations and not required to play our sketch challenges. We will continue to award the Gold Star and Remarkable awards each month as well as a prize each month. We hope you will have fun working with our sketches and will be inspired by the fabulous Midnight Madness Design Teams Work. This weeks's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between. Remember to click on the sneak peek button on the side bar for the following weeks sketch each Friday.

You are more than welcome to enter up to 4 cards during the whole month of MARCH.

Hi everyone! 
I hope you're all enjoying a lovely weekend and doing some fun, crafty stuff! I had a whole day crafting yesterday so I've been trying to get ahead with my creations! Whoo hoo....that doesn't happen often in my house! Over at Pike's Playground we are up for another challenge and this time we'd like to see you "Bling it Up". Yes that's right, go add lots of bling to your creations and show us what you make with Dustin's images. 
It's been a while since I made this card, I almost forgot I needed to post it! Yikes....not again! As you can see it's a Valentine's easel card made with those two cute monkey's of Dustin's. I colored these in pencils and added the little shiny hearts to give it some bling. Above you can see the little purple heart tag slips out to write your sweet sentiment to your loved one.  
The heart shaped doiley came in the shiny gold color so I thought it fit well with the Bling It Up challenge. Now you can see the little gems shine up too! 
The heart dp was leftover from my stash, flowers are from prima, lace and gems from Micheal's. 
I hope you'll join us again this week over at Pike's Playground, and if you do don't forget to include a Dustin Pike image! 
Have a sweetheart of a day!

Hello fellow doodle dragon peeps! 
If you're looking for a sketch challenge this week, look no further! Over at Pike's Playground we have a lovely sketch just for you. Click HERE and go check it out. 
For my card this week I chose to color Dudley and his hot dogs, as we've been having a few BBQ's lately in our house, and I found this fabby quote and couldn't have put it with a more perfect image!! Te he!
My interpretation of the sketch is a little different but I think if you look closely enough you can see it! 
Well I'm actually off to another BBQ this afternoon, so I'll leave you all with some encouragement to fly over to Dustin's place and play along with us! 
Have a fun day!
