Woooo HOOOO I'm a Club Anya Blog Hop Winner Yea!!!!! and also Whimsical Wednesday The Diedrich Dare - "Happy" Time DT post. Prizes this week!!!!

Happy is the Best Place to Be!!!!!

Good Morning Stampers, Friends, and Family!!!!!,

O.K. I just have to shout out a tiny bit of excitement but I participated in The Club Anya Blog Hop on Monday night (if you want to see my projects then it is just one post below this one)  Anyway I made an Anya Advent Calander and a Sweet Holiday Card, and Guess What out of over 70 Blog Hoppers I won one of the 5 Prizes!!!!!!!!!!!  Can you say super duper EXCITED!!!!!  I never thought I would win but it was so exciting to see my name in Lights so to Speak!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

You can read about it here in Club Anya's Post about all the winners also they have pics of all the projects that Won, and there are some really AMAZING entires which makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside did I say YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????? yet????

Well today is Wednesday and that means it is also Whimsical Wednesday with "The Diedrich Dare" Challenge!!!!!

Have not heard of this challenge yet???  Well 3 siblings Madelynn, and (Jack, and Nicky her twin brothers) all take turns issuing us a great challenge either a sketch, color challenge, or inspiration challenge usually and we their Lucky DT get to create projects using their assigned challenge for the week.

Some weeks we have prizes available to those who want to participate, and this week is one of them!!!!!  So Head on over to The Diedrich Dare Blog to see what the great prize is this week, and the bonus is this challenge will last two weeks because we are not doing a new Dare Challenge next week so you have two whole weeks to participate and win the free stamps prize this time around!!!!!  Woooo Hooooo!!!!

When you get a chance don't forget to head out to my Wonderful Dare Devil team mates to see their lovely creations for the week too!!!!!

The Dare Devil Designers:

Cassie Larson... Darla Wilson ...Debbie Lee ... Heather Schlatter... Jacquie Peifer... Jessica Diedrich... Kim Ross...Rebecca Ednie... Sandra McLean...Randi Whall...and...Kris...Jacquie N...Valerie Urtaga.

Here is the Sketch for this week.  See it is a very easy one so why wouldn't you want to play along and win the prizes!!!!!

So here is my take on the sketch.  I flipped it around and so the circles in all four corners of the sketch also got flipped around too!!!!!  This challenge was issued by Jack and so when the boys issue challenges I always try to go with a more Masculine project so this one is for you Jack!!!!!

For some reason when I see this image the word HAPPY is the only thing that come to mind.  Now in our house we do not have video games my Hubby does not think kids should be playing them, but they should be playing outside or with the Nieghborhood kids or playing some sort of imaginary game around the house and so that is just what they do all the time, so I doubt this will ever be Tucker, but I do think the image is pretty darn adorable even still don't you????  This image is one of the Tiny Tykes images from The Greeting Farm.

I colored up this image with these Copics:

Hair: YR00, YR09, E07, E09
Shirt: G20, G21, G24
Jeans: B21, B24, B26
Socks and Video Game: C2, C3, C5, C7
Skin: R00, E00, E93, RV21

 And lastly is this view so you can see some of the dimension on the card.  The image is popped up with excess foam from my TGF stamps.  The next popped up layer is popped up with just excess rubber, and the bottom layer is popped up off the card back using excess foam again.  The Sentiment ribbon holder was cut out using my Nesties and then popped up with excess foam and Stampin Dimensionals.  The ribbon is my favorite sheer organza shimmery ribbon. 

I used SU! Card Stocks in Brocade Blue, Green Galore, and Gable Green.  The image is stamped and colored on Nee Nah card stock.  The Green circles are Dew Drops in each corner.

Well off to bed got ton's to do tomorrow too!!!!  Tomorrow is School for Piper take Willow across town to Pre-K and then get some Christmas Card Stuff done for my Mother in Law then come home and finish it then head out to the Post Office to mail it, then Pick Willow up and then at 5:45 we have to be back accross town to go to Willow's Parent Teacher Confrence and then all the way across town to take the kiddo's to Church, and then Darian and Harley will come home with them until Poppy Richard can get done with Boy Scouts meeting and come and get them.

Aaaaaaaa Long Day right???

I hope you enjoy playing this week it is always so much fun to do the challenges with the kiddo's!!!!!

Have a Stampendous Wednesday Everyone!!!!!

Jacqueline said...

Yay for winning!!! Woo Hoo! Congrats sweetie yours was one of the best! All that coloring though I can't believe you could color one more for this card...has your arm fallen off yet??? ;D
I love this card! So perfect for any little guy!
My 6 year old does play video games, but he is good and shuts them off when it is time! If I didn't grow up a video game junkie as a child I might have the same approach as your hubby :D love your card! Hugs!

Danni said...

Cute card! We have video games but their playtime on them is very limited.

Darla said...

Great job Heather! That little guy is cute...and I think your hubby is games can take lots of the kids attention and time if you let it. We have a Wii that we have to limit how much time the boys spend on it. They are HAPPY when they get to play it though! Great colors. Happy Holidays with your family!
