DYSU Challenge #85 -and BLOG HOP!

Remember that old game,
"Button, button, who's got the button?"

Ok, many of you are looking at the screen thinking, "What is she talking about?"
If you're younger than 50, forget it. It's not worth explaining! LOL!

The challenge at DYSU this week:
AND WE'RE HAVING A TERRIFIC
BLOG HOP!

IT IS NOT WITHOUT SADNESS THAT WE SAY GOODBYE TO MEREDITH WHO HAS ONLY BEEN WITH US A SHORT TIME, BUT DURING THIS TIME, WE HAVE COME TO KNOW HER FANTASTIC WORK! SHE CAN TAKE ANY "CHALLENGING" IMAGE, AND MAKE IT INTO A GORGEOUS PROJECT!
 ONLY TRUE TALENT CAN PULL THAT OFF!

We are hopping this week to, not only introduce our new challenge, but to give recognition to a team member who is making the tough choice between time spent with family or crafting...we all know she is choosing wisely, but we will still miss her!
Meredith, you will be missed,
but know that we will welcome you back any time!

This week's sponsors:
Winner's Choice of 5 Digital Stamps
$10 Gift Certificate
Winner's Choice of 5 Digital Images

My card using Digi Darla, "Happy BearDay"!


I still have issues coloring animals' fur...yes, I'm practicing, Jennifer,
After several attempts, I finally threw in the towel and covered the little bear with Flower Fluff! 

This is a card for a little girl who is turning ONE!
She will love the texture and probably won't judge me on my lack of coloring! LOL!

Papers are DCWV, "Celebration"
Buttons; Creative Imaginations
Twine; The Twinery

Now, on to the Blog Hop!
Your next stop is Joan and I know she has a wonderful project to share!
And send Meredith some love when you get there!
