Thought for the day -

Happy Monday!! I am actually posting this on a Monday morning with my coffee by my side.  Wouldn't it be nice to do this everyday, hehe!  I love long weekends.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Ours was very quiet but that's ok!

Today my card is for a couple of challenges.  I actually used last weeks sketch challenge from The Cupcake Craft Challenge but not in time to enter it.  It is still a great sketch.  I played along with the theme from a Spoonful of Sugar, which is animal crackers (cute name).

I just love this flamingo and paired it up with this great paper from KI Memories called Wild Life.  My image is from DeeDee's Digis and is also for todays challenge at Crafting with DeeDee's Digis.  The theme is summer and I think flamingos qualify, don't you.   I am also entering it this week challenge at DareU2DigiStamp -their theme is the great outdoors.

Getting back to this wonderful image- there is a wonderful new website that offers tons of freebies (like my flamingo) from some amazing digital stamp companies.  In addition to finding all the digi companies under one "roof" and getting some great freebie images, they also offer some wonderful challenges.  If you haven't see this site you need to check them out- it can be found here.  I also have their banner link on my sidebar-
Crafters Digital Art Center!!  An AWESOME site!!

Have a great day!!
