Raise The Bar & DCRU Challenges

***This is my second post today, Please scroll down for my Bee Crafty Challenge post***

One of my goals for 2010 is to be able to play along with more challenges!! Yesterday, I had a little extra time and designed a card for this weeks challenges over at Raise The Bar and Die Cuts R Us.

Raise The Bar is a brand new challenge site that my dear friend Joni Wilson has started up!! This weeks challenge is called "Debut Day". Basically use something in your stash that hasn't been opened yet. It could be a spool of ribbon, a new gadget, accessory, stamp, DP, a gift from the holidays, DEBUT it! Well my little treasure is my darling little Ella Lollipop stamp that my dear friend Lori Boyd designed for Stampingbella that I had to have and just haven't had a chance to ink up yet.

Die Cuts R Us challenged us this week to use "Leftovers". We were to make a new creation from leftover Christmas/Holiday Scrapbook Paper. Well I think that 98% of my cards were made from the yummy Eskimo Kisses pad from Basic Grey. They moment I saw it, I was in love with the colors and patterns. For this challenge I decided to do something a little different and create a Birthday card with my leftovers.

Happy Stamping!!
