Child Money Holder and a Re-do

I don't often give a child 4-5 years old money for an occasion such as a birthday. Sometimes, though, there is no other choice. It never fails to make their face shine when they see a "big" number on a bill which is such fun.

Yesterday I posted a card made with one of the Some Odd Girl images. They are sponsoring the Digital Tuesday Challenge this week. When going through their stamps, I could not choose just one to use. They are all so adorable.

Today I used the cutest dog called Lil Puppy Walks. The first thing I thought of when I saw him was a child's card. I have very few of this theme in my stash of cards so that made it the perfect choice.

SOG doggie frontI colored him very simply since that is how most child cards I have seen are. I also think that children that age associate with that type of coloring on an image.

he he he, I love his little toy. I bought this a while ago to make a scrapbook page about my doxie. It still hasn't happened, but I found this and the bone sticker as I was going through my stash. This image was just crying for these!

Look at that big number on the bill. Wow, it has not 1 but 2 digits, lol. If I were 5 years old this bill would instantly make me feel so grown up!

I am entering him into the following challenges:

1. Don't forget about the follow me blog candy. Read about it at the top of the page.

2. Digital Tuesday Challenge is having a design team call. There is one spot to fill for a 6 month+ run.

See the complete information here.

Onto my RE-DO. Last Tuesday, I posted a TV Guide/magazine holder. As I said in the post, I was not happy with the image background. Since I adhered it with the very strong Scor-tap, I did not think I would be able to get it off. Well...I did! Here is the "new" one, LOL

Tv mag holder redoI definitely like this much better. I used a smaller piece of wood and left off the gold "shine" around him. I also added the DAD! with a frame.

As you can see, the rest remained the same. I still love the charm. It seems so funny to me with the image, LOL

Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost
on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any suggestions? Thanks!
