DTGD Cards for 2017 & WOYWW 427

Joshua 1:9 "Have not I commanded thee?  Be strong and of a good courage:  be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed:  for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."

I am home again for a short time! Just spent a couple of weeks of staying with my teenage grandchildren while our daughter and husband were on a missions trip to Germany.    I thought I would show you the 35 cards that I with  help from my Granddaughter did last week for the Dare To Get Dirty Challenges on SplitcoastStampers.

Some of the challenges were technique challenges, some sketch, some color, just a variety of challenges.  Now I have my stash built up again for birthdays, praying for you, and even anniversary cards. All these cards were made with items I took to my daughter's with me in a suitcase on a plane.  I took no tools, stamps, or inkpads.  I just took, pre folded bases, pre embossed panels, pre made technique panels, precut die cuts, and some embellishments. I just hoped I would have what I needed to meet the challenge.  Again, I didn't know what the challenge would be!  For a couple of the challenges, we used granddaughter's school paints. It really felt good to be using stash!  I should try this more often!

Our granddaughter, when she had time would take a break from all her activities and we would work together to do a challenge.  Then during the day I would show her my idea and ask advice between her music lessons, practice and home school work.  She really had a lot of good  input,  on five of these cards in particular and I left those with her to use. Particularly the drippy paint one!  She named it Icing on the Cake!

Thanks for stopping by!  So glad I could share with you!  Now to get ready to go to a 4 day Scrap Retreat tomorrow!
     Be sure and check out Stamping Ground to see more deskers!   Happy WOYWW!
