A TDS color challenge!

Hi everyone! Isn't the week going by so slow? Hang in there, Friday is coming. ;)

Soooo, do you like my new look? In my summer mind, I wanted to make everyone feel like they're barefoot at my home, eating, relaxing, and listening to Hawaiian music. :D That's a new magazine holder that I whipped up yesterday afternoon instead of cleaning the house. The kiddos were enjoying the sand box so I seized the moment and made it while chatting with them. Priorities right? That's what keeps us happy. Haha!

This week Mandy gave us the coolest color combo for The Digi Shack's Challenge:

Bordering Blue
Old Olive
Regal Rose

Oooh...pretty. Let me first apologize for this picture, I promise it's nicer IRL, I'll even send it to you as proof. haha!
Using one of The Digi Shack's newest Dad's day image found HERE, I created this card:



Ugh, I took about 20 pics of it but there's so much white on it that it doesn't photograph well.
The boat is done with chalks (remember them?) and a little bit of a blender pen for some darker areas. The sentiment is from the same set, I thought it was such a nice saying:


There is also paper piercing all around the card and the edges are distressed. I sort of followed a sketch by Digital Tuesday Challenge found HERE. :D

I hope you all come over to play! The Digi Shack has some really great images for dad's day, and the DT will also be showing some sneaky deakys for the big release on the 15th. I would love for you all to see what the Maui Wowies (<--our new name by a landslide viewer vote!) has created for this challenge so that you will be inspired to join in. Please upload with the keyword TDSC8 in any of the galleries, and leave a comment HERE to let us know that you are a fabulous contender. Have a wonderful day everyone!
*Love and Aloha*
