Challenge #57

Welcome to challenge #57 here at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog.

Thank you to everyone that played along with us for our "Red, White & Blue" Challenge #56. We had some GREAT entries! Please go to the post below to see who Mr. Random has chosen as our Featured Artist!!

Before we get to this weeks challenge, it is with regret I tell you that our design team member Sharon will be leaving us. She will be truly missed and we wish her the best of luck with everything! So, with that being said we will be looking for a new team member and will be holding a DESIGN TEAM CALL during this challenge. If you are interested in being considered for our team please put the letters DT after your name on your entry.

So, now on to the new Challenge. This time around the theme is "Happy Birthday". So, what are you waiting for, let's get craftin'!!

We can't wait to see the AMAZING projects that you wonderful crafter's create!

This week... for our "Happy Birthday" Challenge, we are lucky enough to have not 1, but 2 sponsors!!

Our first sponsor is:

digital stamps

That's right, one lucky random person will win digis of their choice from Some Odd Girl!!

You can check out their Designers here...

And for our second sponsor....

That's right, one lucky random person will win a $10 gift certificate from Digi My World!!

Annie is new to sponsoring challenges and we are officially her first! Aren't we LUCKY!?!

And here's a little info about her...

Digi My World opened its doors in April 2011. It was created by me, Annie
Kelly, a self taught artist, crafter and web designer. I has always
dabbled in doodling and creating from even an early age. Whatever the
craft, I have tried it. From drawing, painting, sewing, doll & pattern
making, I have tried it all. Mind you, not successful at it all, but I
sure did try it all!

Clipart has taken on a whole new art form in recent years. The world of
paper crafts have brought line art to a whole new level - being dubbed
"digital stamps". It is with all these new developments that Digi My
was created.

I am a stay at home mom to 2 boys. My oldest son is ADD and my youngest
is autistic. It is because of my youngest son that I was not able to
initially go back into the work force. I have been selling and working
online since 2001, owning and creating for the web. If it wasn't for the
wonderful connection of the internet, I am not sure where I would be

All of my digital stamps and clip art are my own creations. I get
inspired by the most random and silly things. Long trips in the car can
give me 7 -10 new mini collection ideas. It is a wondrous feeling being
inspired by the simple things in life! I hope you enjoyed visiting with
me today -- and if you are in need of some adorable and original images,
please make sure to visit Digi My World. I hope it brings a smile to your

A special thanks for Courtney of Penny's Challenge Blog for allowing me
this opportunity to share my creations.
