Dare you to Digi Stamp - challenge 6


The week the challenge is stitching and gingham. I was originally a bit stumped because I do not have any gingham paper. I know, I know, as someone who has been scrapbooking for over 11 years I should have some in my stash. That said, I don't. It then dawned on my that I DO have lots of gingham ribbon! So here we are. The image is by BeccaKay and I think she is just as sweet as can be.

The other challenge this week was to actually mail out the created card and to send to a child sponsored by Post Pals in the UK. This is a FABULOUS thing and I am very excited to learn about the organization. What a wonderful thing-I would encourage ALL of you to check it out and send a card if possible.

I am sending this one to Samara M. She says she likes glitter and sparkles (so do I Samara!) so hopefully she will enjoy the card!
