Happy Friday!  The challenge at Digi Haven this week was to all use the same freebie (above) and then have all of you use it as well, however, one of the drawbacks to this plan is that the image is no longer available on that particular blog...hmmm right?!  Well we're going to open it up this week to be an "anything goes" challenge then so you can use whatever you want, as long as it's still free, so there are no excuses to join us!

Digital Image - Pop 'n Stick - but they are no longer there :( 
Digital Sentiment - Create with TLC
Cardstock and Papers - Kraft paper and DCWV's Nature stack
Other Stuff - ProMarkers, cricut.

Peace & Luv,


We are happy to introduce to you a new sponsor this week called MilkCoffee, which is where this cute little girl called Charlotte is from that I used today.  Here is a little bit about the creators of these stamps:
MilkCoffee Stamps is a digital image shop specialized in cute and girly images.There are 2 people behind this shop, Esmeralda and Nathaza. We are best buddies from our childhood with a common thing that we love so much: drawing.

What we try to do is drawing various styles that suits different kind of tastes, so a lot of people with different style can still play along with our image for their cards.

Right now we have 8 talented DT ladies who always help us to have fun together with our weekly challenge at our challenge blog here. We also have a monthly colour challenge at our main blog. You can check it out here.  It's very nice to see a lot of people join and have fun with our challenges.  In the future we still want to make more cute images that are loved and used happily by many people.
The Grand Prize winner this week will receive 3 Free digi's from the MilkCoffee Shop!

Well Happy Friday again and welcome to Post #2 of the day!  If you're looking for the Digi Haven Challenge, see below!

The Challenge #8 theme this week at 
Broken Box Stock is Brown Baggin' which means we'd like to see you incorporate a brown bag into your design.  That means you can use it for the base of your card, make a mini brown bag, create a border, etc.  My idea was to make a gift bag for a bottle of wine, and I had a great time doing it!


Now you do need to use one of the Broken Box Stock images, but you won't have any trouble picking out any of them to play with I'm sure, and there are also bunches of freebies to choose from too!


You have 2 weeks to join us, so this challenge will end on Thursday, September 6th.  I can't wait to see what you create!

The Grand Prize winner will receive a $5 Gift Certificate!!

Digital Image - Broken Box Stock - Uncorked
Sentiment - Create with TLC
Papers - DCWV's Citrus 8x8 Stack
Other Stuff - Brown lunch bag, ProMarkers, ribbon, circle nestie, scallop scissor and pop dots.
