Good morning to you all! Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Delightful Challenges and the theme this week is Bingo!

You can choose any line of 3 - horizontally, vertically or diagonally.  I have chosen the middle line - tag, ribbon/lace and punches/die cuts.  Here is my card:

Just so you know there is a tag, here is another picture:

Items Used:
Image and Sentiment:  Digital Delights Watermelon Time Set available here
Markers: Copics
Papers: Echo Park "Springtime Flowers"
Dies: SB Labels One, Grand Decorative Labels 1, Doohickey Tag, La La Land Heart Banner, MB Isabella and Pippa Butterfly,  MB Catalina Wreath
Misc: Ribbon, Pearls and Resin Flower from stash, Colour Box Ink "Ice Blue"

Our sponsor this week is:

The Cutting Cafe will be giving the lucky winner 3 sets from their store!  You don't have to use a Digital Delights image to enter but if you do then you can enter your project twice!  Please go over to Delightful Challenges to see what the rest of the DT have done there is some fabulous inspiration there!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Crafts and Me - Use a Digi
Bearly Mine - Lucky Dip (I chose diecuts, ribbon and pearls)
Get Inky - Die Cuts
Incy Wincy - Animal Antics
One Stitch at a Time - Summer Fun
Creative Corner - Things with Wings

I am so gutted because I can't find my LaLa Land heart banner that I used on this card! I only got it the other week and it was so difficult to get hold of as everywhere had sold out! I have turned my craft room upside down and emptied bins but no sign of it! Fingers crossed it will turn up again.  I am having a totally crafty day today - hurray!! Thanks for coming round, I will be back tomorrow. Take care xx

I lost the center of the poinsettia membory box was lost for a couple of months and then I found it when i moved a piece of furniture!

Your card is lovely...I so was not ecpecting the twist of the funny hidden sentiment...I giggled right away!
Thanks for the kind commmets on the garden. We spend most of the summer up at the lake (4 hours away). That garden had to get done B4 the hot weather so now I have just to set up the watering and we are good to leave next week. Hopefully DH gets the house and shed power washed before then...that is one job he quite enjoys without any help...thank goodness!!!teehee

I hope you find your die, I lost one of mine once and it was in between two pads of papers.

Patricia said...

Hope you find that Die maybe "stuck" to the back of some papers. Why do I say that....yep! that`s where I found one I had lost.

Love your card and that wee face is so darned cute you just have to smile.
