Bee Crafty Chopping Challenge:


How do you like my new blog look?? I have been working on it for a few days now. The only thing left is a new siggy :)

Hard to believe we are into August already - before you know it will be Christmas again **jumping up and down**

Today's DT Challenge: The new monthly challenge at Bee Crafty is Cropping & Chopping Images.

I did something I never do: Clean and Simple and I used an acrylic stamp too!

I used Whimsical Girl Summer Ducky {found here} and cropped her into a Christmas card:
Whimsical Girl
Card Ingredients: Bee Crafty digi; Recollections paper; Copics; Gelly Roll white pen; Studio G stamp; Craftsmart Black ink.


I made her swimsuit into a polka dot top.
Here is the original digi:
I made Whimsical Girl for the following challenges:
Sassy Studios - Christmas
Happileigh Scrappin' - anything goes
Stamps & Fun = Creativity - Christmas Cards
CES Challenges - feeling the blues
Sweet Stampin' - Christmas
Crafty Catz - Christmas
ABC Christmas - O is for Old (older digi or stamp)
jingle belles - blue Christmas


Thank you for stopping by!
