Word Play Weekend Challenge #8

For Whimsy Stamps Digi blog hop please click here!


Hello everyone and thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you are enjoying your summer.

I have a new challenge word for you, and this week's word is


Feel free to create anything you like using any of your products (rubber, clear, digi, stickers, etc.) and then just link your card below for a chance to have your project featured next week.

Can you find the puppy in my card? LOL. I know it's tiny. I had another image in mind at first, but then I really wanted to play in Mo's Digital Challenge so I decided to use this new to me image from Mo Manning.

Here is my card.

Products used:
Stamps: digi-Kansas (Mo Manning), rubber - everyday mini postage stamps (Whimsy stamps)
Papers: Stampin Up, neenah
Tools: whimsy shapology mini postage die, MS punches, janome sew mini, SU punches
Embellishments: ribbon, paper doily, brads, glitter,

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
and, wow, I did find lots as most challenges this week are "red, white and blue". I never am able to combine this many but couldn't resist this time!


Now onto last week's Card of the Week. Thank you to everyone that shared their card with me!

Absolutely fell in love with this cute bird house shaped card by

Maria M.

Fabulous idea to cut around the flowers from the designer paper and then add them to the music sheet background!

Congrats Maria, feel free to grab the logo below to post on your side bar.

To play along in this week's challenge simply link your card below.
