CDAC Challenge Cards to share . . .

Hello Everyone!
Gosh ... I sure hope you all got through this last round of storms without incident!  Wasn't that lightening terrible!  YIKES!!  Stay safe my friends!
Today I'd like to share with you the cards I created for the current round of challenges over on CDAC.  What great fun!  I've added the link to the CDAC Main Page ... if you scroll down a bit you will see the challenges listed ... pop on over ... grab your freebie and play along!  I'll be watching for your creations!!

Here are my cards using a couple of the freebies offered in the Freebie Challenge . . .

 The digi image used on this card is by The Digi Street.  Andy is an amazing illustrator and has a lot of adorable images to offer!  Be sure to check him out!!  I thought this poor kitty was 'missing' something (like the bird that was supposed to be inside the birdhouse ... LOL) so that's the thought behind my sentiment.

Next is an adorable outhouse digi image from Dowdy Doodles.  Again, I have linked you directly to their store so you can check out all the fun digis available.  I didn't know what sentiment to put with this image ... then I saw this stamp in my collection and thought it would be FUN!!  What do you think??

For the Embellishment Challenge, Tlc Creations has offered this awesome 'Summertime' sentiment digi stamp.  I have paired it up with an old Stampin' Up image as well as Flip Flops from a See-D stamp set.  Prismacolor markers and chalk have been used to coloring my main image.

How about this 'funny birthday bunny' offered by Zlatoena Designs for the Holiday/Special Occasion Challenge.  Isn't he just the cutest thing!!  I have used various DCWV designer papers for this creation as well as faux stitching around the outside.  

Isn't this grape cluster digi from "priscillastyles" fabulous!  It paired so well with this BoBunny designer paper and it was so much fun to color!!  Priscilla sponsored the Color Challenge and our colors were Green & Purple ... perfect for her wonderful digi offered for this challenge.

Lastly is this fabulous Graduation Sentiment digi stamp offered by Sending Treasures for the Sketch Challenge.  Now mind you ... I haven't done a card with the 'sketch' yet ... but I did get the THREE graduation cards done that I needed!!  Yippee!

Please take a moment and visit these wonderful artists sites ... you might find that digi image you just can't do without!!!  And I'm sure you'll find inspiration along the way!!  THEN ... please come join us at CDAC ... it's a wonderful network of artists and designers ... you don't want to miss all the fun!!

Well, my crafting friends are here ... I'd better get to creating!  Catch you all later!  HUGS!!
