What's Up, Mom?

I have 2 monthly progressive challenges that I like to enter each month. Here are my entries into both the challenges -- Gerda Steiner's Monthly Challenge and The Outlawz Progressive Freebie Challenge.

I'll start first with my entry for the Outlawz Progressive Challenge.   The image this month is provided by my talented friend, Andrea Norris, of Sheepski Designs.   She has 2 versions, depending on what you call your mother in your neck of the woods.

Here's what I created for my Mother-in-law for the upcoming Mother's Day holiday:

I printed the Mom digi on Copic X-press It Blending card, then colored it with Copic markers.  I have some new dies from JustRite Dies that I used on this.  The Ribbon is from D.L. Art's Etsy Store.  It is part of the Valentine Bundle.

On to the entry for the Gerda Steiner Challenge:

This tag uses 'Hang In There Monkey,' a digi found in the Gerda Steiner Store.  I colored the Monkey with Copic markers, then used a variety of dies by Paper Wishes to create the tag.  The plaid paper is from Lawn Fawn, as is the sentiment and the word bubble die. The card stock and fibers are from Close To My Heart.  Love that hanging monkey!

That's all for me today.  Off to find some challenges to enter these in:
