A Piece of Home

Hello everyone.  I hope all is well wherever you are.  I am posting this pre-scheduled since I am on vacation and hopefully enjoying some sort of warm weather. At least I know it will be warmer than it is in Wisconsin.
I want to welcome you all to the first weekly challenge at the Digital-Ink Co. challenge blog.
Please remember to sign up to be a follower, at every 50 new followers one of the crafty creators will give a FREE stamp away. So get your friends together and make sure to join in on the fun.  Also each week one of our followers will be SPOTLIGHTED in the newsletter. Another place to get a FREE stamp each week.  It Could Be YOU!

Our first weekly challenge is to create a tag, card, layout or project showing us your take on Peace, your hope for Peace in the world, what Peace means to you, or what gives you Peace in life. As you can see this is a pretty broad category and do not forget there is always the play on the word so get your thinking caps on and most of all HAVE FUN!!!!!

There are some awesome prizes to be won. Once again Paper Wishes is our sponsor plus 3 Stamps from our Crafty Creators.

All you have to do to qualify is:

1) Make a project following the guidelines of the challenge.
2) Post the prize package on your blog

3) Become a follower of the Digital-Ink Challenge blog if you are not already

4) Link your project to Mr. Linky and have some fun with us!!!!


My stamp is by the lovely Lexi of Lexi's Creations. His name is Squaddie Scruffles and can be purchased for a mere $2.25. I thought since our Military is fighting for Peace what would bring them some Peace????? Then it came to me “A Piece of Home!!!! A CD of Pictures,  maybe favorite songs or a recording of a child’s first words. I colored Scruffie with copics and then glazed his uniform. Added the embellishments and a computer generated sentiment and he is all set to be sent to a favorite soldier.

So get yourself in some Peaceful thoughts and show us what you’ve got.

I just know it will be FANTABULOUS!!!
