whimsical wednesdays

happy wednesday! this week over at WW our challenge is "just because"  a card or project to let someone know youre thinkng about them. it MUST include a digi image and/or sentiment. so be sure when you play along with us this week to follow the rules ; )

 this week we are working with bugaboo stamps . they  let us DT ladies choose our own image to work with. my choice is from the stick kids series, rocket4. i paper pieced the image, used a bit of colorbox fluid chalk and stickles on the "blasting off" part ( i cannot think of what its called ;), wheres my daycare boy when i need him lol :) 

 
a bit closer..isnt this image so cute! 

i used foam stickies under the rocket and 2 of the stars. i also added stickles (stardust) on the stars too. 
bling isnt something i would normally add to a boy card but i thought the stars would be ok to glam up :) 
i used circle punches the larger one i ran through the cuttlebug and swiss dots folder. 
the saying i thunk up is computer generated. 




this week Bugaboostamps is our sponsor. how cool eh :)  they have GENEROUSLY donated 7 , yep you read that right seven! digital stamps to one lucky random winner who enters our challenge this week. to learn more about bugaboo please head on over to their catchthebug challenge blog. <~~~~ just click and you will get right there . 
 dont forget to check out which digis   the rest of the dt over at whimsical wednesdays  has worked with. we dont get to see each others projects  beforehand so im super excited too! we definetly have an awe inspiring rockin team!  AND we have 2 guest designers from bugaboo joining in our challenge YAY how fun thank you ladies for joining us! 


thanks so much for hanging out with me today  i had a blast ;) your comments make me grin i hope my card does you, i know the sweet digi  image does anyways :)  have a great day and get your craft on :) XXXshelly
