Round 2 of the Progressive Challenge

The Facebook group for Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans is having a progressive challenge. Round 2 has begun and the challenge is to use one of her Etsy stamps with a heart in it and you need to include some sparkle on your card.  As you can see, I am using a brand new stamp called Love Letter and a button with Kisses and glitter on it.

Check out our fun Facebook Group and join in our challenge.  Also, Sandra is sponsoring a bookmark challenge right here on my blog (posted wed)!  It's using a stamp that she made just for me, you can buy this stamp Bearly a Headache..  It's on sale from Feb 3 to the 5th for half price!  Get it and make a fun bookmark so you can play and win prizes.

Which stamp do you like in Sandra's Babycakes DND (Doodles n Designs) store?  do you use Digi Stamps?

My current favorite has to be hmmm, Tattoo Hippo, or the Chicken Noodle soup just makes me laugh!



Did you sign up Feb 1?  Be sure and go back and leave a comment there (CLICK HERE).   Be sure to leave a comment each day to be in for every drawing as I haven't chosen prizes on any day yet.

Hi Holley,
again, you made a very lovely card! I just love your coloring :)
I really like the Chocolate Cupcake 4 U digi. It's just so cute :)
I don't mind working with digis, I actually really enjoy coloring them, but if I have to choose I would usualy pick normal stamps. :)

Love the card - again making brown look good, lol. I have never used a digi stamp, preferring to work with the real thing and get inky. However, I have taken a peek and love the Betty Mermaid image. Yep, still lovin' the mermaids.

I like the Big Love image Chocolate Cupcake 4U and I definitely use digis. Love to resize when needed. Cute card you made. I love pink and brown combos.

Jennifer Scull said...

what a wonderful card with that great image and folded doily. :)

I love all of Sandra's images, but Bearly Starbucks is next on my 'to buy' list. probably because this looks waaaaaaaaay too much like me! :)

have a great weekend!

a very sweet heart image and beautiful card Holley.

Rhonda Miller said...

What a sweet image. I love your card.
I like the Chocolate Cupcake 4 U stamp. Yes, I do use digi stamps.

cebelica said...

You made a very nice card. I like the stamp you used, because it is versatile and can be used on various occassions - Valentine's, weddings, birthdays ...
I am not very keen on digis and I don't use them often. I might use them occasionally, but very rarely. I prefer rubber and clear stamps.
To be completely honest, Sandra's images aren't really my cup of tea. There are some nice ones, but none that I would be using on my creations.

Gorgeous card Holley. Hugs Jennifer xx

Holley,
Your card using the Love Letter digi stamp is very cute. I like the Chicken Soup one and also Harvest Basket and Birthday Cake digi stamps. I do use digi stamps about half the time. The benefit is that you can size them just the way you want them.

My Cup of Tea is adorable!! I can't print anything so I don't use digi stamps.
LOVE this sweet card! Not too mushy but sweet!! TFS!

Lea Brawn said...

Fab card Holley. Just to say if you hear me scream in a minute it's because I've been asked for the millionth time today if I'm a flipping robot by Google and if I can see the grass, the waterfalls and where the waffles are hahaha. Losing my mind now. Xxx

Lea Brawn said...

Arrrrrhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I had to find the squares with trees in...no laughing! X

Kate M said...

Great card Holley, love that stamp.

Hi Holley - I have to admit that I have never used a digi stamp. I haven't tried because I am not a comfortable colorer, even though I have tons of the alcohol copic markers. 134 Sew Silly and 259 chocolate cupcake are very cute.

Linda Simpson said...

Beautiful card Holley.

KT Fit Kitty said...

Your little envelope is adorable! Nice addition of the doily - I keep forgetting to use my doilies! I mostly make cute animal cards so my favourite is the Kissing Kats! Yes, I use Digis but I'm trying to use more stamps as I can't use my watercolour markers to colour digis (printer ink runs). Thanks for another day of giveaways! Enjoy your weekend!

Jackie Trinder said...

Hi Holley this is a beautiful card. The little envelope is just so cute. Take care. Hugs Jackie

Glennis said...

Pretty card Holley, I don't use digi images very much, and these ones are not really my style - sorry

Amy#8546(TheTigersHaven) said...

What a cute card Holley. My favorite image would be love is blind. It's so cute. I don't use digi stamps often. Right now I can't because I don't have a computer at the moment. Just my phone.

Dwie lewe rączki said...

Lovely card and this envelope is really cute :)
Hugs, Iwona

Jean Chaney said...

Yes, I prefer digi stamps because of the storage issue. My favorite is Mr. And Mrs. Digi Stamp. Reminds me of me and my husband LOL! Cute card today. I like the added doily too!

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

I'm loving the bunny hippo. He is cute. Great project. I have a few digi stamps but don't use them much. I guess they get lost in computer world

Andree said...

A wonderful card Holley. The doily and image are gorgeous and I love the pink and brown colourway.
I love using digi stamps as they can be resized and are easy to store. Physical stamps are fabulous for sentiments. Sandra's style is so distinctive and full of humour. I bought Bearly a headache, just need to get it coloured up and my bookmark made xx

Nikki C said...

Holley that is a wonderful card and I use digital images and stamps more for sentiments too. I say a fave would be Lil Rudy Reindeer,Nuts about you squirrel so cute :)

Karenladd said...

I don't use digital stamps in general because I haven't had a printer for over a year but I love the Chocolate cupcake 4U digi.

Mel C said...

Great card Holley, love that image! I use digis a lot & like the Chicken Noodle Soup one because it's funny!

Kathy said...

Darling card. I love digis because you can adjust the size and sometimes reverse the image. I like the Old Married Couple.

Brooke Guadagno said...

Cute card Holley. I like the Campbell's Soup Digi. I use digi's once and awhile especially if it fits the need.

Kaye Greening said...

great card. especially like the button.

Your love letter card is adorable but I haven't used digi stamps yet. My printer is too often out of ink and I'm not very good at coloring so mostly use regular rubber or clear stamps. I do like the Wings Gang digi though!

UTs Hobby Time said...

Very pretty card. Love the kisses button. I don't have a printer so I mostly use clear/rubber stamps

DonnaMundinger said...

This is a beauty, Holley! Still trying to decide which stamp to use for this part of the challenge. I'm with you on the Chicken Noodle Soup for a giggle and I adore the Wonderland party. Heck, they're all so cute, it's hard to choose a fave. xxD

ionabunny said...

Cool card. Love the envelope full of hearts. I'm going to check out your favourites cos I've never seen a tatooed hippo and I love chicken noodle soup. Hugz

ionabunny said...

Oops, got distracted and didn't answer the question. I don't usually use digis. Never had much luck printing and resizing. Some nice quirky cat stamps there though. Maybe I just need some more practice LOL. Hugz

L. Tagg said...

Sweet card! Yes I use digis, but I prefer stamped images

Leanne said...

Lovely card> I do not use digis as much as stamps.

Judith Perry said...

I use a few digis. I used to color them in Paint Shop Pro because I only had a inkjet printer. Now that I have a laser printer I ma starting to print them out to color them.
My favorite stam is 182 Bearly Starbucks Digi Stamp.

I love digi stamps, clear stamps, rubber stamps. any kinds of stamps. I love the coloring on this card. you always pick great coloring.

bissecat said...

I like this so sweet card.I like digistamps too.

Pat said...

Loe your card, Holley. I go over and salivate over Sandra's images often. I loved playing with the Three Stooges image, but she has so many really cute animal images now. I am loving the cats and the octopus and the squirrel...there are too many to choose from to pick just one!!

Donna said...

This is a fun card! Love all the hearts. I like the My Cup of Tea digi. Very cute!

Charlene Mitchell said...

Hard to choose only one .. . Tattoo Hippo first, Hippo Headache, My Cup of Tea are my 3 top favs!! Fun card and once again, I love your colour choices!

Caleb Strahan said...

I don't think I have ever seen a Sandra stamp I didn't like. :) I don't have a printer though, so digis aren't really my thing. I love how you used the doily under that gorgeous stamp too!

stamping sue said...

no, I don't use digi images for two reasons first I like the feel of rubber in my hands. second you never know if my old printer will work.
