Fundraiser for my Girls

Happy Memorial Day weekend to all our U.S. friends!  And hope the rest of you are fairing well too *Ü* Some of you know that my daughters, Carly & Maddy are trying to raise traveling funds to get them from our home state of Oregon to Washington D.C. next month to compete in the National History Day competition (http://nhd.org).  They each won 1st place in their divisions at the state level at Concordia University last month.  It's a great honor and opportunity for them, but it is a non-funded program which means we have to raise the money for their plane tickets (not to mention all traveling and lodging for a parent to go with them cross-country).  Carly is in 9th grade and did a research paper on "Kennewick Man".  The theme this year for the contest is "Rights and Responsibilities".  And Maddy (8th grade) did an exhibit on Helen Keller.

Thanks to one of my team members, Jenn, who gave me the idea for this, we decided to do a li'l fundraiser for the girls using Carly's digis she created!  For just $10, you will get all 10 digi sets, designed by Carly (when she was 12) PLUS you will get a 50% OFF coupon code, good for everything in our store!!

Remember When...

Hi,  I'm finally back with a card :)  It's been so long since I've actually made a card I couldn't believe how long it took me to create such a simple one (coloring with Copics took practice), lol.

Today I'm releasing 5 new digi sets plus a digi paper pack in my store!  We're also starting our May Progressive Challenge today, PLUS there's a "Throwback Thursday" freebie on our blog.  So lots of fun stuff happening, be sure to head on over and join in the fun :)

My card today showcases one of the new sets, "Li'l Tree House" - it comes with a variety of signage, and you get outlines plus color!

I added the girls to this digi for my card (they don't come in this Tree House set), they are "School Girl" and "Lily's Flowers."

 I used the Digi Sketch Challenge sketch since I'm sponsoring them this week! The theme to go with this sketch is "SPRING TIME"   Here's the sketch to follow:
You can have a chance of winning 3 FREE Digi sets from my store if you play in their sketch challenge!  :)  

And before I go, here's a pic of our new releases ...
