Roll Out the Barrel

.....and we'll have a barrel of fun!  Now you're going to be singing that all day long!  Um......I really think that was a totally different kind of barrel in the song though! 

This little barrel of fun is from Deedee's Digis.  It's one of the pre-colored images in the set and somehow I have about three (or maybe more) colors of blue in there.  I'm trying to use up some of my card stock that has no name - but when I laid all this out, all the blues matched......maybe I need a new light fixture!  Anyway.....as I said, the image - and also the sentiment - are from Deedee's.  The patterned paper is from SU and the card stock from who knows where.  When you get this set from Deedee's, it also has the colored images, line images........and the digi paper (which I didn't remember to use until I'd already finished the card!!!!)  Sequins!  You're going to be seeing some of those on my cards now too as I'm trying to see if I can at least make a dent in all the ones I have.

Now, all about that fun I was telling you about........be sure and check out Deedee's challenge, blog and store!  I know this is long but so worth reading.  Hint:  There's a freebie involved here too!

Twist #1 -- FREE-FOR-ALL! This month is a FREE-FOR-ALL challenge!  As you can see, the featured set is "Monkey Business," and while last month's players received the whole set, we're offering the dingle monkey image from the set to anyone else who would like to join in.  When you make and link up a project using our Digi of the Month, you get the next month's featured set for free!  This is a great chance to join in and start collecting new, FREE digis each month!   To download the freebie from the set for this month only,  go to the Deedee's Digi challenge blog here and download it from there.


Twist #2 -- PRIZES!
Each Monday throughout this challenge, we will select one winner by random draw from our challenge participants to-date.  The winner of each weekly draw will receive their choice of any one digi set from our shop.  (Limit: one weekly win per challenge participant. All participants up to the date of each drawing will be included, unless they have already won.)  Then, at the end of the month, we will choose one Grand Prize winner who will receive their choice of any five digi sets from our shop.  All participants from throughout the month, including our weekly winners, will be entered for the Grand Prize draw.  You can enter more than once, but each entry must be a separate share on your blog or gallery, please, and it must use a Deedee's Digi.

So, that's it for today!  Thanks so much for stopping by.....and check out Deedee's Digis and play along with us this month.

A very cute card, Lynn! This is a fun set! I like your colour scheme!

Deepti said...

Awww those monkeys are the cutest, I love the stitching across the panel :)

NanaConnie said...

It may be your camera instead of your light that changed all the matching blues, Lynn. They all still seem to work perfectly well together and I love the sequins! :-D

Carol L said...

What fun!! I love how you offset the circles while matting them, and the stitching adds such a fun touch to this cute little card! Super fun card!

JD/ Jill said...

Great DeeDee's image, and liked the bright colors you picked for the little 'naner nabber. I'm liking the offset of the stitched circles too. Great use of your blue snippets papers and they did match well indeed. The center pop of dp went so well with the blue solid and sets this little image off as did the nice zigzag stitching. Gotta get busy with my DeeDee's! TFS & glad you knew what a Fish Camp was! Those hushpups were very light & delicious. Yep, nearly everything was fried, but not greasy or heavy though. All but DH waddled out - he was trying to not overeat. I should have done the same, but didn't! TFS & Hugs

MaryH said...

Oops. Forgot to say I liked the sequins. You're using yours up, and since I've not had any, just bought a couple of tiny bags. Got to remember to add them! Hugs

Joann Burton said...

Shirley said...

Your monkey are too darn cute for words and the DP and the colors are perfect with those wonderful sequins too!

Margaret said...

Wow! Cute card and look at you go! Sewing!!!! I don't think I've ever seen you use that on your cards.

scrappymo! said...

Oh my gosh...this is so darned cute!

Love those little fellows. I am having a bit of difficulty with the stairs at the moment so not crafting...luckily I have a lot of cards made so can schedule posts.
Bad knee...ice should eventually help!

Love your paper, the sequins and best of all the offset image...that looks great!

Tracy Freeman said...

Bonnie said...

This is more fun than a barrel full of monkeys! Sorry, I just had to put that in here! Love the bright blues and polka dots and the adorable monkeys!

Marilyn said...

Cute monkeys and that's a fab piece of paper you used!

Brenda said...

OMGosh I am so loving this card Lynn!!! This digi is so cute, I love the bright colors in it and can't believe how well all your blue's match. That doesn't happen often. lol Love that bright DP, it goes so well with the image. Love the sewing you have done on your card too. The sequins look great as well so keep using them!! lol Hugs, Brenda

Jessi Fogan said...

Oh I love it! I laughed at the blues not being the same - yesterday I was trying to make a card with a supposedly "coordinating" pack of paper - yep, blues don't match.

Joan Ervin said...

Your little barrel of monkeys is adorable, Lynn....I especially love how you off set the image on the blue background layer...awesome design detail!!!!!
