This week's Digital Tuesday Challenge is all about the kids. All you have to do is make a card for a kid. It's just that easy.
This week's sponsor is My Grafico and they are offering a digi stamp set and20% off a store order to the winner this week. Lots and lots of sets to choose from so be sure to check them out.For my project this week I chose an adorable Pixie Dust Studio image. It was a great excuse to make a boy themed card. Besides I fell in love with the designer paper....especially since it was in the clearance section. How could I refuse?
I hope you take the Digital Tuesday Challenge this week.

"Lets go to the movies"
It is time to put your thinking caps and to make a project that is movie inspired. It can be an image, color combo, you name it. You can play it safe or think outside the box. Either way I hope you join in on the fun this week. I can't wait to see what you can do. Be sure to head on over to the Challenge Blog to see what the DT came up with this week.
Since I recently watched the Johnny Depp version of Alice in Wonderland I thought I'd take the easy way out and chose that movie to work with.
I created a tea bag holder for my second project. I used the Mad Hatter image called touch of Depp also from the Down the Rabbit Hole collection.
Here's a close-up of the tea bag holder:
And here's a picture of both projects together:

I used the Ribbon Sentiments and Banner set and Shaped Card set from The Cutting Cafe. I printed the ribbon shaped card template on white cardstock and cut along the lines. The two circle sentiments are from the 1 inch Everyday Sentiments set also from the Cutting Cafe.
The large layered flower was made with my Cricut (The cartridge is called Paisley).

image. Their images are just my style - cute and sweet.
I don't know about you but I am definitely ready for warmer weather and sunshine. I decided to use the Sunny Tia image for my card. She is part of the March 1st release. Isn't she adorable in her orange and green outfit?
I created the background paper by printing the Clock Background from The Cutting Cafe on Kraft paper. I'm glad I decided to print it out on a full sheet of cardstock because it is a lot more versatile than I first thought.
Here's how the card ended up:
I used a circle punch and punched out one of the clock faces to add a little dimension to the background. It's hard to see on the picture but it looks really neat IRL (In real life).

This week Robyn's Fetish is sponsoring the challenge. They are giving away 5 digi images or 4 digi images and 1 paper pack (winners choice).
As you can see, I mixed and matched several different designer papers. It's nice to be able to use up some of my paper scraps- as it is a never ending pile. I hope you join in on the challenge this week. It never hurts to have a baby card around.
