Swinging The Day Away! Going Grey with Scrap-Creations Challenge

Happy Tuesday afternoon! Today is a little different at
Every Tuesday we post a fantastic challenge that we love to have you play along with. Well because of last week being a holiday and so many of you being on vacation or enjoying the holidays with family and friends we at Going Grey decided to extend the "summer" challenge for one more week! So that means you have til next Monday night at 6:00 to play along. Also that means you still have a chance to win $15 GC from Whimsy Stamps! I can't wait to see all the wonderful creations that you make, just remember to use Basic Grey paper on your creation.
Go here to add your card to the challenge.

This card that I made for the summer challenge has a beautiful image from Whimsy Stamps done by Chrissy Armstrong. I just love her images. To add to the image I stamped the branch (Stampscapes) and leaves (Rubber Stamp Tapestrey) then made some grass with my Copics. I printed out the digi the used my Stamp-a-Mejig to line up the branch to the rope ends. I love when they make tools to make everything so fast and easy!

Here are some fabulous challenges that fit my card

Truly Scrumptious Challenge 36-this is the great sketch that I used plus the have an optional theme of How Does Your Garden Grow. I added lots of flowered DP and flowers to give the card a garden feel!
Wild Orchids Challenge Week 1-This is a new challenge that started this week. Their challenge is to "Say It With Flowers". They want us to use flowers as an embellishment on our creation. No problem for me I use flowers on almost everything!
Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp'en Challenge-This challenge is to create something that uses ice cream or sherbet colors! I used the colors of Raspberry Sherbet and Pistachio ice cream!
Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 25-This challenge is a photo inspiration challenge. I used the color green as my inspiration and also because it is candy and every time someone gives me a piece of candy they usually tell my to "enjoy" it so that is the saying I put on my card!
Creative Inspirations Challenge 68-This challenge is "On The Move". I have an image of a girl swinging, so she is moving, KWIM?
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 120-"School's Out For Summer is the challenge. This cutie can now swing all day in the sunshine!
Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge #15-Their challenge this week is to add "TEXTURE" to your creation. I added ribbon, flowers, and glitter for texture.
Dutch Dare Card Challenge, DDCC#81-This challenge is a photo challenge, I did lots of flowers on my back round and as embellishments as my inspiration!
Paper Sundaes Challenge #26-The challenge this week is to add lots of layers. I definitely have that covered!
Papertake Weekly Challenge-This challenge is "In The Garden". What a fun theme for a challenge!
Polka Doodles Challenge Week 27-This challenge as a summer theme as their challenge. I think this little cutie is swinging and enjoying the summer day!
Stamp, Scrap, and Doodle Saturdays Challenge-This challenge this week is to create a scene. I added the branch, leaves, sky and grass to create a scene around the image!

These are all fantastic challenges so be sure to check them out and maybe even play along!

Thanks so much for stopping by today to see what I have created! I really appreciate all your wonderful comments.

Happy Creating,
Mary
