Anything Goes with a Twist - Oh Baby!

Hello Blog Land! This is Sharon and I am hosting this week's Anything Goes Challenge. Now you know we like to add a little twist here and there and this week's twist is:  "OH Baby!" Spring is upon us, a time for new beginnings. From talking to friends, family and co-workers, there are a lot of new little babies soon to arrive too. Enter anything Baby related, a card, layout, altered item. Any animal baby works too.
Delicious Doodles is our sponsor for the challenge and Teri graciously gifted a few images for our DT to work with. AND...... Teri is also gifting 4 images to one lucky winner! Winner's choice.

I chose the Bear with Baby image. I had so much fun creating with it.

This is a 1/4 fold card from my stash. Actually everything  I used is from my stash. I colored the image with blending chalks and added the blue bow for a boy. The buttons are chipboard and tied them off with
Martha Steward Bakers Twine.

This is an A6 size card, I trimmed the right side about 3/4" and stamped the hearts, which are actually on the inside of the card. Papers are from stash, colored the image with my son's Crayola pencils. Punch is Martha Stewart and I added the little flower (from Recollections) for the baby girl touch.

The extremely talented Doris and Rene joined in on the challenge and this is what they came up with:



This challenge is open from today through April 23rd. Please upload your photos here with the Mr. Linky thing and if you do not have a blog, you can upload your photo to our FLCKR.
Stop by Delicious Doodles and check out all of Teri's beautiful designs.

One lucky winner will be chosen at random by Random.Org. I will post the lucky winner on Wednesday, April 24th after 3:00 p.m. EST.

It's All About Animals!

Hi! Chrissie here, to invite you to play along with my challenge: It's All About Animals!

For my card, I decided to use a whale image from The Alley Way stamps Sea Mates set.  Whales are mammals, so they do fall into the animal category.  :)

I used a Hero Arts/Studio Calico sunburst in the back and adhered the whale with foam adhesive.  I colored in some bling using alchol markers (Spectrum Noir DR7) and I added a little washi tape to the side of the card before adhering the card stock with more adhesive foam.

Now it's your turn! Show us your projects using animals! You have until April 9, 11:59 pm (EST) to enter.  Use the Linky below to play along - we can't wait to see what you come up with!!!
