DTGD Cards and some wonderful RAKS

Good Tuesday Morning!
What a great way to start the week! Monday kicked off the Dare To Get Dirty Challenges on SCS and you know I can't pass up a challenge....rofl
This first one was for Laurie's challenge. I wanted the sentiment from Verve to be the main focus but after cutting it out with my Nesties, I realized it was a little bare. So I decided to add some Dew Drops and a Martha Butterfly.
Don't you love the new Baja Breeze cardstock?? It goes really well with Soft Sky. This card was made for Jody's DTGD challenge on SCS. I added Stardust stickles to the image and smeared it right after I took the picture...good thing eh?
I decided to pull out my Prismacolour Pencils and Gamsol for this fabulous Annie LaPoint image from MFT. I haven't used this colour medium in ages! I used some of the new Baja Breeze cardstock with Crate Paper??? oh my...I need to take better notes on my scrap pieces....ok or maybe this is Tres Jolie??? haha!
It was a HAPPY MAIL day at the Easton house again Monday! I didn't get just one....I got TWO beautiful RAKS! Thanks girls!
This first one is from Christina from Flowers and Ink. This isn't just a RAK....it's an IOU of sorts for a FRUITY drink that she's buying me when we meet up...someday soon I hope! :) This one is from Jackie aka hpyscrpr2 on SCS. Check out Jackie's gallery...her work is amazing and I know she's busy right now getting ready for Convention but I miss seeing her in the daily challenges :(
Thanks for stopping by today!
Don't forget to pop on over to the SCS Dare To Get Dirty Challenge Threads and play along with us!! I'm having so much fun! New challenges are posted daily at Noon Eastern.
Also All NEW Little Paper Shop stamps are available to purchase today!

Your cards are gorgeous! I love the way you've used Baja Breeze -- so pretty!

I can taste that drink now... :)

Marie Cramp said...

Love your cards. How does a rak work? You give your address to someone? If you are sending one is it a blank card or do you write a message to the person you sent the card to? I am curious as to how it works.

Thanks
Marie

Before I forget, I wanted to let you know that the paper you used on your MFT card was My Mind's Eye dp. Hehe. I have it too! Anyway, your cards are just gorgeous! You have certainly been busy! I love how you used a monochromatic theme on the first two and your colors on the third car are just so bright and fun! Fabulous job girl! Love all of them!

Love the vellum over that green on the first one. ...and I'm really lovin' the soft sky/baja breeze combo...gotta try that. I had that polka dot ribbon too (note the past tense)...just used up the rest of it and I'm so sad. It's one of my favs!
