EXCITED!! Penguin Trio...Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #334

Hello!

You have one incredibly ecstatic - and honoured - *c* today, because I'm thrilled to announce that I've been invited to join the Cupcake Inspirations Challenges as a DT Sweetie!  I'm on Cloud 9!!



This week, my new and ultra-talented DT invite you to design a card/project for Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #334, featuring this yummy colour combination:

The sponsor for this challenge is Dilly Beans  and the lucky winner will receive 3 digi images of his/her choice


Dilly Beans have given the team a selection of images to play with for this challenge so here's what I've come up with - my second EVER digital image (this is a brand new path for me: I'm nervous, but what an opportunity to stretch creativity) - featuring a trio of cutie-pie penguins, sporting navy and rose scarves and toques (that's Canadian for 'hats' *grin*) as they stand on their rather sloping snowy hill.


I hope you'll stop by to see the team's amazing navy, rose and white creation, leave them some love, then design a card/project using the same colours and join us in the gallery.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Congratulations on your new DT assignment. I'm not familiar with this challenge, so will definitely need to go and check it out. I am in love with this adorable digital image and your fantastic coloring. What a wonderful trio. For me, I am afraid of digital, and whenever I win a digital image, it goes straight over to Kim! I am glad that you are braver than I am. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.

Congrats on being a sweetie!! I am also scared of digi images. Have tried but never really succeeded. But you have rocked it here! And wow to your colouring, love how you have made the sky slightly lighter around the images. Thanks for joining TO

Bobby said...

Congratulations, Carol. It looks like you're off to a good start inspiring us to join in the challenge. Those penguins are just darling and your coloring magnificent. I haven't done any digis because I was worried about my printer and the lines bleeding. I need to give it a try. I'd also like to find the hundreds of digis that I purchased from Provocraft years ago but lost somewhere when I got a new computer. Someday . . .

Leigh Penner said...

Oh, this is adorable, Carol!

Geri said...

Congrats dear friend! Another DT gig that you are gonna rock! You've colored up this trio in a fabulous way! Great blending!!! The best thing about digi images... is that they always 'stamp perfectly' on the first try :) :) :)

Kylie said...

They are absolutely charming but what really caught my eye was your sloping hill. I think that little curve on the hill makes the card just a little quirky and extra fun!! Congrats on the team - so well-deserved!
