Splitcoaststampers (SCS) is the world’s largest stamping community, with more than 400,000 members of which many are Fan Club Members. Each year several of the past and the 12 current designers at SCS (known as the Dirty Dozen) have a week long challenge-fest (40 challenges this year!) known as “Dare To Get Dirty (DTGD).” These challenges are especially for the Fan Club Members to say “Thank You” for their support.
Today is Day #1 of Dare to Get Dirty, and I am hosting a challenge which you can see HERE. (You must be a Fan Club Member to access.) The cards that I am sharing are example cards for my challenge.
Here’s a little tip. I like to punch different colored circles to place behind buttons. By doing this you can really change the look and “pop” of a button.
This second card will be for my father-in-law’s birthday. My hubby was recently saying how much he appreciates the fact that his dad, even in financially thin times, had a small boat that the family would enjoy all summer long. It made for some happy family times. He can write his dad a note on the inside to that effect.
A little piece of twine adhered to the punched anchor adds a fun element and completes the card.
I’ve also entered into some of my favorite blogland challenges:
