A Card With "Punch" (and a DT CALL!!!)

Good morning, and happy Friday to you stampers!! Today marks another Digital Release at Wags 'n Whiskers!! That's right, your favourite images from both the "Sports" and "Fun in the Sun" releases are now available as digital stamps! To add to the excitement, we also have a brand new challenge for you today and your lovely hostess is the amazingly talented Karen...honestly, she works magic with her Tombow markers! Karen's challenge is called "Punch It'...so break out all those punches and get crafty with us this week!

I used the digital version of "Tiny Dancer" for my card this week. As always, I stamped on Neenah cardstock and coloured with my Copic markers. I have to confess...I only own three Martha Stewart border punches. GASP! I know...crazy, huh? Honestly, there are a ton that I would love to have, but punches are on the pricey side, so I try to make sure it's a punch that will be quite versatile before I invest. I have two or three that are on my wish list...and I just so happen to have a birthday coming up fairly soon! :) I also pulled out some rhinestones, Prima flowers and Stickles as finishing touches. The sentiment is from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.





We'd love for you to participate in our challenge! Nikki and Lacey have slowed things down a bit at the Wags 'n Whiskers blog over the summer...we'll be posting a new challenge every other week, which means you have TONS of time to complete a project. As always, there will be a fantastic prize up for grabs however, you MUST use a WnW image if you want to be eligible to win. You can purchase either the rubber or digital stamps HERE.

So hop on over to the Wags 'n Whiskers Blog to see what the rest of the Divas have made this week...then link up your project for the chance to win!

Oh, and while you are there make sure to check out THIS post, because Nikki and Lacey are holding a Wags 'n Whiskers DT CALL! They are looking for two permanent DT members, as well as guests designers (these will be two-month terms). You will find all the details and instructions for submission on that post.

Blessings,

Melanie
