CDS Pirates Ahoy Preview and a New Delightful Challenge

Hello my friends!!!
Today i'm Excited to share with you a preview of the new Louby Loo Creations stamp set "Pirate's Ahoy" from Clear Dollar Stamps. This set will be available April 1st.

I had such a blast playing with this adorable set. Is he not the cutest little pirate? Below is the full Pirates Ahoy set. I love how all the accessories are separate, it leaves you the option of how you want your pirate to look.
and if that weren't enough, there are optional digi stamp accessories available at Digital Delights.
below i'm showing the colored version but the black and white version is also available. I used the map image on my card and i think it just adds so much. Used together this set is Perfect for children's cards and scrapbook pages.
So be sure to visit Clear Dollar Stamps and the Digital Delights store on April 1st to grab yours!!!

We also have a new challenge going on at Delightful Sketches and Challenges. For the next two weeks we want you to

GET OUT YOUR PUNCHES


For this challenge i used the Wonderland Briley image from Digital Delights. I used my flower stamp punch from SU! to punch out the flowers i used in the middle of some chipboard flowers i had. I just layered them on top of each other, added a white flat back pearl and wahla a whole new flower.
The sketch i used is from Amy R's Friday sketch. with the addition of all my flowers it's kind of covered up but i promise it's there. lol.

As with all of our challenges we have a Fabulous Sponsor, Simon Says Stamp.


I hope you play along with us, I can't wait to see what you come up with!!
