You Are My World with Audrey


Hi everyone!  It's Audrey from the DT and I am here to share a card I made with one of the images from the You Are My World set that you can find at Imagine That! Digis by Kris Shop.   Image is colored with Copics and cut out with stitched die from my stash.  The sentiment I used is from a clear stamp, although the same sentiment is available in the You Are My World set.  I sure hope you like this card and that it has provided some inspiration for you.

Additionally, just want to remind you our current challenge is still going on  here on the blog - our theme this time is a SKETCH.    Our challenge runs until 11:55pm on June 3, so hope you will come check it out!  This is the sketch you are to use:

Finally, don’t forget about our Imagine That! Facebook Friends and Fans group and a brand new FB DT that has  a challenge of their own.  Plus, we’d love you to share you Imagine That! digis by Kris projects.  Sure hope you will come join us there.

Marleen's Chocolate Bar New Release ***GIVEAWAY***

Did somebody say CHOCOLATE?  That ooey gooey goodness that is rich and thick and can take the edge off of almost anything?!!!  Well apparently loving chocolate isn't exclusive to just people.  Today I'm going to introduce you to a digi stamp character who loves chocolate as well.   Meet...

There is even a Dutch version if you'd like...

Hee, hee.  Apparently we caught her by surprise as her mouth is already full of that lovely sweet chocolatey goodness.  Well, if you want to share the wonders of chocolate with all your girlfriends but don't want to share the extra calories, then this set is perfect for you.

Two of our design team members whipped up these sweet cards to help inspire you all...

Would you like to win this yummy set, as shown above?  To be eligible, simply leave a comment answering the following question...

Which is your preference:  Dark Chocolate, White Chocolate, or Milk Chocolate?
  I'd like to say that there isn't a chocolate that I've met that I didn't like but that isn't true.  For some reason I just can't wrap my head (or my lips) around white chocolate.  I don't know why but I just don't like it.  Of course, it happens to be my husband's favourite! 
Instead, give me milk chocolate or dark chocolate any day of the week.  No really--I want it every day of the week!

You have until 3:00 p.m. (PST) on Monday, May 30th, to get your response submitted. 

We will announce the winner of this set on Tuesday, May 31st at 3:00 p.m.  Don't forget you'll have just two weeks to claim your prize, if you are the lucky winner!
