Stampin' for the Weekend / Stamp Something

Good morning all. Can you believe we are into March already. The months are just flying by!! It's still pretty cold here, not much sign of Spring at all :S

As I'm nearing 20,000 hits on my blog (woot woot!!) watch out for a little celebration candy in the coming week -  as a big THANK YOU to all you wonderful bloggers who take time out of your day to come visit me. I love reading your comments and visiting all your fabulous blogs too. 

Today I have 2 DT cards to share. This is quite a long post so grab a coffee and pull up a chair, lol.

First up is Stampin' for the Weekend and the challenge for this forthnight is to make a momochromatic project. 

At this stage I think we all know what Monochromatic means but just in case.. 
"Monochromatic colors are all the colors (tints, tones and shades) of a single hue" 

So basically it's one colour but different shades of that colour. These are the colours I used :)

Our sponsor for this challenge is:

and the prize up for grabs is a $25 coupon for the store. (You can click on the blinkie to be taken to the store)

We have a fabulous new guest DT member, Heather from Rica's Haven, and she will be joining us for the month of March. Please do pop over to leave her some love :)

I am entering this card into a couple of challenges

Congrats on all the hits! I knew when we started them yours was going to be popular. :)

These cards are lovely. They look womanly instead of kiddie like so many I see. Those bubbles on the digi are awesome. Beautiful work.
