Happy Monday!

Is it Fall in your part of the world? It has really cooled off this past week,
only 89 degrees today and I have the planting bug! 
We  got part of our garden planted yesterday. SO, anyways its PIP Challenge time!
 We are being Sponsored by Digital Delights by Louby Loo and they have supplied us with the little
 cutie...Rocky goes Fishing. After coloring him, it sure needed some black to set him off
 so instead of matting him I just added part black to the background.
 A sentiment and scalloped edge to finish it off
.Hope you will pop over and join us this week.

Tuesday Throwdown

Team B is up this week and our sponsor for the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge is Joy Claire and tags or bookmarks are the order for this challenge.

They sent us a fun Oh So Ink Spots Set. I started out with a a Spellbinder Scalloped Pennant turned upside down to form a tag. I covered it with different Ink Spot stamps in green, aqua and periwinkle. The little square mat for the Joy Clair Stamp is cut from a Spellbinder die as is the image. I mades some little flowers and cut some leaves. Tucked in some cheesecloth around the little square and added the hand dyed ribbon. This was a fun tag and I like the way it turned out. These ink splotches are really cool but hard to see since most are covered up..
