Diedrich Double Dare and Raise the Bar Challenges with Whimsie

Greetings to all of you! Today is my Monday after the long weekend so it may be a long day at work for me. Boo hoo. lol

That’s okay though, I had my fair share of paper crafting this weekend and thus why I’m posting lots this week. I had set a goal that after I came back from the cruise, I would participate in more challenges. I definitely kicked butt this past weekend! For today’s post, I used some Whimsie Doodle images and played along with Whimsical Wednesdays: Diedrich Double Dare as well as Raise the Bar challenges.

Why a double dare you ask… because there were two different sketches and I was able to play along with both! Design Team member, Heather, had her two daughters each draw a sketch as seen below; aren’t they adorable? lol For more details on this challenge, check out the original post here.

For the other card, I also used Raise the Bar’s challenge this week which was to use a purse for inspiration. I pulled this image up from an Etsy listing:

While the colours are different, I was following the patterns on the purse.

I hope you have a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!
