When I was out of town (and away from crafting), there was a challenge that I saw that I wanted to (but couldn't) do. So, today, I played "catch up" and incorporated Day 152 (Peek a boo) at 365 Cards into this card.

Tuesday's 365 Cards challenge was to use a sign on your card. I looked through my stamps. Nothing. And I didn't feel creative enough to "create my own sign". Disappointed, I figured I wouldn't have anything to contribute ... but, once again, the creative muses were on my side.

The other day I stumbled upon a new blog offering a free trial of some digi stamps. I tried one out and really liked the idea of digi stamps. Well, Penny (from Creations by Penny) was looking for DT members, and I was interested ... and (tah dah!) Penny asked me to be on her DT! I'm so so so excited about this opportunity. Be sure to go to her site and see the digi stamps she has created! Anyways, now that I am a DT member, she sent me some of her digi stamps. {Thanks Penny!} Yeah, you guess it. One had a sign. Toot toot for me! So, off to create I went.

And, then I found my CTMH watercolor pencils. It's a good day in the craft spot of the Harris house!

Here's my card: [Penny, I *know* you don't like BoomDiAda ... but your bear looks cute with it! :) And, I'm out of scraps ... it's the end of the paper pack!]

I'm sure you can't tell by the picture, but the sign (and paws) are popped up. Can you see the sparkles in that orange border? I'm really liking those tiny CTMH Clear sparkles!

Here's the inside: (Remember, the PeekABook challenge on 365 Cards!)

And more:

This was my first time doing a card like this, so it was a lengthy process to get things to work. In the end, though, I am happy with what I created!
