I live in the South...

So, this past weekend was seriously like my crafting birthday. I won the second Flower Basket Challenge at A Day for Daisies. (Challenge 3 - Lots of Layers is on now...) My name was pulled for the September Show Us Your Stuff Challenge in the A Day for Daisies group on CDAC. Michelle Perkett was so awesome and put one of my Snow Goddess cards on her blog for the big blog hop at CDAC. AND, I won a free digi from a new stamp company, Anita Be Stampin! I was way too excited all weekend... :)

Since it's been almost a week since I made anything, I really wanted to get to my new Tallulah digi from Anita Be Stampin. Anita & I sent a couple of emails back and forth after I found out I won, and I was telling her how this stamp reminds me of the Kentucky Derby and Designing Women. (Don't you miss that show?) I live in GA; this woman is - without question - a Southerner. I used Mojo Monday's Sketch #159 and came up with...

Leopard, right? Owww... She couldn't just be plain with that big ol' hat on! :) I called myself paper piecing that dress but didn't like how it came out. (The paper was too thick.) So I ended up free handing those leopard spots. And as football and Lisa @The Purple Place have recently reminded me, it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so she got some pink too, Sugah!

I'm entering this card in the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #159, Karber's Challenge 8 - Go Digital, Paper Playtime's Challenge #19 - Ribbons, Buttons, or Rhinestones, Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp'en Challenge - Anything Goes, Crafty Emma's #6 - Get A Hat, Stamp, Scrap, and Doodle Saturdays - Open, Fab N Funky Challenges #43 - Use a Digi, and Freshly Brewed's Anything Goes/Girlie Challenge. Also, Anita from Anita Be Stampin is giving one of her rubber stamps away in a challenge she has on PCP. To enter, all you have to do is make a card using one of her images before midnight (CT) on Saturday; she even has a free one waiting there...

**Totally unrelated, but if you use Picnik to edit your pictures, have you seen the stuff they have for Halloween? Fangs, fake beards, spiderwebs, eyeball frames, ghoulish fonts... They set it out. Picnik even has the pink Breast Cancer Awareness Frame that I used...
