Happy February! New DICC Challenge

Happy February! And, Happy Birthday to Desert Islands Crafters Challenge! We’ve been at it for a whole year now, and it’s been a lot of fun! In honor of DICC’s birthday, we decided to go with a birthday themed itinerary, created by our very own Leila.

1) Birthday
2) Balloons
3) Cake
4) Presents
5) Confetti
6) Party Hat
7) Birthday Sentiment
8) Candles
9) Cupcake
10) Bright Colors

As always, you need to use at least 3 items from  the itinerary. I used #’s 1, 2, 5, and 10. What’s more, is that I have a very special sneak peek for you! I get to share the newest version of Lola, from Simply B Stamps. She is from the new Birthday Teens collection, which we will officially start to preview on February 4th. I love every incarnation of Lola, but this one is for sure one of my favorites!!!

How joyful is she!? And adorable! I love her balloons, her sweet face, her plaid skirt. And coloring her was a ton of fun too!

I used watercolor markers for her, and a little chalk for the background. You can see that I embossed confetti by using a Fiskars texture plate, and I applied chalk to that as well.

My sweet sentiment, “a card to give you a little lift,” is from Create with TLC. They have beautiful sentiments and images, and many of them are free! I encourage you to check them out. It’s a wonderful blog.

So there you go. Happy Birthday to DICC! Please be sure to check out the rest of the creations made by the DT on the DICC Blog. And if you would, please visit the Bombshell Blog today for my February Hump Day Hop theme! Stop by here tomorrow, because there is going to be a Strange Skin Blog Hop! You won’t wanna miss this hop!!! We have a crazy cool group debuting some of their newest images. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
