This week the ladies at Hambo Hoedown wants everyone to make an easel card using at least 3 spring colors. Just in case you don't know what the spring colors are, they are lavender, yellow, pink, green and blue! I do believe I have all the colors of spring on my card. If you played last week you would have gotten this cute image called Bunny Parade, to play with this week. Here is a close up of my card!

A little 7 year old girl by the name of Emily has been fighting leukemia since before December of 2011. She has had to endure more pain in one year then most adults in their entire life. She has gone from Leukemia to Rotavirus, to pancreatitis, to kidney stones then to shingles, not to mention over 300 pokes in her little tiny body. From chemo to blood draws to feeding tubes. She has definitely had her ups and her downs.
Over at Dustin's Pike, he is asking that you send Emily a card to help brighten her day, he is even offering you a full set of digital images. All you have to do is, be kind and send a smile by making and sending a card. You can read all about it on his blog Here, I would really like to encourage all my followers to do this.
Emily has a long life ahead of her and with the encouragement of her family and friends is fighting with all her strength. You can read about Emily and her progress on her Aunts blog HERE.

The challenge this week over at Dustin Pike's Doodle Dragon is to create something using zoo animals. Once again, if you play, you win, everyone who enters gets a brand new image that won't be available in the shop until later in the year.
I decided to make a bookmark out of those mischievous monkeys, as I'm forever forgetting my place in my books, they will help keep me on the straight and narrow, okay probable not, but they will remand me where I'm at.

What's going on at Hambo Hoedown, well, somebody needs a hug! This weeks challenge is to add stripes to Bailey Hug, which is the image you would have received if you played last week. Isn't he just adorable!
I'm forever losing my place in my books, so this week I decided to make several bookmarks, one using this image, Bailey Hug. I used Copic markers and added texture/fur to Bailey by using my blending solution, then I added paws to the twine. Here is a close up!

This is CDAC's 3rd series of progressive challenges, you still have a few more days to play, and you don't have to buy in because this is the 1st challenge. I wanted to make something clean and simply and this is what I came up with. The flower image is from Glitterbabe and is called, Just a Flower, I coloured, cut and shaped them and added a simple message to the card.
