Creative Card Crew & Digital Tuesday Challenges

Happy Tuesday!

Every other Tuesday I have a double DT duty post to share,  featuring challenges from Creative Card Crew & Digital Tuesday!! 


Are you ready for another Creative Card Crew fortnightly challenge? This time we are playing with flowers!!!

And our lovely sponsor is Fred She Said, how appropriate!!! FSS Store

Papers:  SU! cs
Ink:  Prisma pencils
Other:  CB embossing folder, Offray ribbon,
SU! chalk for background & shading.

This is a newly released set from Fred She Said!  Tracey has included various elements to this set along with ready-to-print sheets for your convenience!!!

For some reason, I could not get my camera to focus, sorry for the blurry photo!  I'll try to replace it next time I snap some pictures.

The CCC girls have provided some lovely inspiration...

Creative Card Crew - flowers


Now let me tell you about our current Digital Tuesday Challenge! Our lovely Lorraine has challenged us to create thank you/give thanks cards or projects this time! My Grafico is sponsoring this week and is offering up a lovely prize!!!

Wasn't this a perfect challenge combo opportunity?!   Flowers & give thanks!   The front sentiment reads:

And whatever you do,
whether in word or deed,
do it all in the
name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to
God the Father
through him
-Colossians 3:17

I like to nuture a grateful heart in my children and myself, sending thank you cards is such a small gesture but blesses the recipient as well as the sender!

Check out some beautiful inspiration from the rest of the DTC girls..

Patti J said...

What a beautiful card, Maria! I love your coloring, and that sentiment is so wonderful. I'm so impressed that you are teaching your children the art of saying thank you. We don't see much of that in today's society! My kids hated it growing up, but now that they are the adults, they understand, and thank us for it! I applaud you, my friend!
