DTGD cards and Ways To Use It

Good Friday Morning!
Today we are heading to the bowling alley and then coming back here for a DQ Ice Cream Cake for Chloe's birthday...it's Sunday :) I'm not sure how much stamping I'll get done today but I will squeeze some in later ;)
Holly always has the best sketches and this one for her DTGD Challenge was no exception! I've enjoyed it so much that I've already done another and you'll see that tomorrow! I wanted to make an All SU! card and almost pulled it off....lol I suppose if I had used my Coluzzle for the image panel, I could have done it. BUT nah....I like using my Nesties way too much! You can't tell in this picture but I used Shimmery White Cardstock and watercoloured the bird with Pink Pirouette and an Aqua Painter.
Sharon's DTGD challenge was Stamp Simply. She says to start with a simple design and stamp. Grab some of your favourite paper. Add your stamps and sentiment. Then top it off with a few simple embellishments. Well this is what I came up with! I don't think I have ever stamped on Designer Paper so simply before...I really like it! I'm sure to do this again!
Thursday's Ways To Use It Challenge was using the reverse of something. Like here....I used the outter chipboard after punching out a circle and a heart.
Thanks for stopping by!
Tomorrow you will see my sample for a DTGD challenge...but not first in the morning on my blog. I'll have it on the SCS DTGD thread at Noon Eastern. Hope you stop by to see it and play along!!

The amazing card is truly amazing. I find that I use a certain tool...and use it to death...until another tool comes along and the cycle starts all over again.

Enjoy the day.
