Digital Tuesday Challenge #61-Trendy

Happy Tuesday! Hope your weekend was a great one!!

Today is a new Digital Tuesday Challenge and our lovely Shelly has set a wonderful theme, so let's print some digis and have a play, shall we?!

The theme for this week is:
"Let's Get Trendy"
The challenge is simple - pick a trend (Retro, the 80's, a fashion trend, famous color combo, etc.) and create a project around that trend. For this challenge you are the master of your design and can go with what inspires you.
Our fabulous sponsor this week:

What's up for grabs this week? How about a chance to win 4 digital images from In Style Stamps.

Stamps: InStyle Stamps (Gidget)
Paper: SU! cs, Memory Keepers/glitter DP,
MS DP for paper piecing
Ink: Copic Markers
Other: offray ribbon, button-stash, SU! oval punches.

Isn't this a 'happy' card? InStyle Stamps so generously allowed us all to play with their images! I thought this fun image would surely bring a smile to someone not feeling very 'smiley'!!!

***on the homefront*****

We had a beautiful weekend! My hubby had a chance to work on his new shop, located on our property. The walls are up and now it's time to order the roof trusses & metal roofing! We are so excited that he will have more space to spread out!!! (We have our own custom woodworking business!) The kids have visions of dividing up his former work space for themselves...too fun! We'll see where that goes, though I'm in full agreement with my oldest son's idea of a sound proof room...he just bought a monster bass amp! eek!!!! lol

Praying peace & joy over you!

Oh yeah Maria this works for me the colours that paper and fun image I love it. I used to be able to do the hula hoop thing when I was young doubt if I could get one to fit around me these days lol.

Holly said...

What a great card Maria! I love the dp you used - it really gives that 70's feel! Cute image, and I really like your little ribbon strips with the button!

Janis said...

Your card is so GROOVY! Love it! Thanks so much for playing at Paper Playtime. The new shop sounds fun and exciting. The kids daydreaming of the empty space is too funny. Good luck with making everyone happy on that one. :)

Kristine Reynolds said...

Annika said...

Oh this card is just so uplifting and fun, gorgeous colours and BANG on trend!
Feeling for you regarding the monster bass amp ... would drive me bonkers. You'd think my 4-year old wouldn't be much of a threat but then my hubby had to go and get him a drum set... aaarrrggghh
