*Wink *Wink Ink DT fun & a challenge ...

Hello again ... how's your day going?  With Monday being a holiday, I didn't get to share with you my *Wink *Wink Ink DT creation ... so here I am on Wednesday afternoon ... better late than never they say!!  LOL!!

Before I share my DT creation with you, I would like to let you know that *Wink *Wink Ink is proud to be sponsoring the challenge over on Butterfly Crafts.  Although I think this site is geared more towards scrapbooking, I hope it's okay that I came to play along and created a card layout vs scrapbook layout. 

This month's challenge is a visual one and you are to use the image they provided as the inspiration for your layout.  Here is what I've come up with ...

 I chose the *Wink *Wink Ink image called "Blossom Baby" for my card along with designer paper from the Basic Grey Euphoria pack.  The sentiment is by Inkadinkado and I have used Quickie Glue & Deco Art Glamour dust for added sparkle.

If you'd like a chance at winning THREE *Wink *Wink Ink Stamp Sets ... pop on over and join in on the fun.  You can't win if you don't play!!  


OKAY ... NOW FOR MY DT CREATION ...

I just LOVE this new set Melanie has created called "Hangin' Out"!  Isn't he just the cutest little guy!!  There's also a little girl and sentiments with this set ... be sure to pop on over to the *Wink *Wink STORE to see this adorable set and all the other new, fun stamp sets Melanie has been busy creating for you!!

I used chalk & a make-up applicator to create the sky and even added a few birdies with one of my Stampscapes stamps.  The fence is a Martha Stewart border punch and I've added the little Amuse flowers to help set the scene.

So there you have it!  Sorry I'm late with my posting but I hope you enjoyed them both.  Remember ... Challenge #3 over on *Wink *Wink Ink will be posted on Monday, JUNE 7th.  I hope you can come play along!!  It's going to be a unique, fun challenge this month.  AND ... be thinking about what you'd like to suggest for July's challenge ... that's coming up too and gives you another chance for *Wink *Wink Ink images.

Thanks for stopping by!!
