Wednesday challenge on a Thursday

Good morning!

So I'm a day behind in sharing this card with you here since this was my sample for the All That Scraps challenge. This week we want to see you use some kind of text paper on your cards... it can be torn from an old book, cut from a newspaper or even scrapbook paper that's made to look like that. I took the later approach and used the October Afternoon Cherry Hill die-cuts for a quick and easy decorative border strip that only looks like I punched it out of old dictionary paper... yep, I'm a cheater, cheater pumpkin eater LOL! :)

For the main image I altered Sugarplums Polka Dot Emma simply by wiping away the bottom half of her swimsuit and torso then drew in the skirt on her new dress. Oh and I added some shoes to her feet too. Now she's ready to step off the beach and head off for a day out on the town. :)

I hope to see you join in this week's challenge, there is a super cute Pebbles Inc Lil Buddy paper and sticker set up for grabs which would make some fantastic boy cards! Just be sure to post your entry on the blog using Mr Linky by Tuesday at 10:00pm est. Your card must include a stamp sold in the All That Scraps store (don't worry there are a ton to choose from... check it out!) to be eligible in our weekly giveaway and only one entry per person please. :)

I can't wait to see all the cool cards everyone comes up with for this challenge!

Happy stamping my friends! :)

This is such a happy, colourful card!! And I can't believe I haven't left a comment earlier!! Its been such a busy week. Littlemiss Sugarplum is gorgeous and I love her head scarf/tie.

Just heard that where I live (Sydney) and the east coast of Australia is now also on Tsunami alert following the massive earthquake in Chile. They're not expecting and land inundation, but higher than usual waves and such. Will be praying for all those devastated, killed and injured by this earthquake and those involved in the rescue & recovery efforts and that no further losses are experienced because of the aftershocks/effects. *so much happening in the world right now* *sigh*
