Challenge #46 - "Numbers"

Oh so many entries for the past challenge "In the Garden"!   I am really pleased there was so many entries, but I am sorry that I wasn't able to make a comment on each one.  However I did look at each one.  I was out of town and had to use my iphone / ipad and it took so long to go back and forth to the various entries and comment blocks.

Now for the current challenge....Challenge #46 "Numbers"  You may enter anything you like as long as it has numbers on it.  Here are some creations by the Design Team to get you inspired.
Those of you in the United States can relate to my card --  The day of "Numbers" , April 15.  This image from Dilly Beans looks just like my husband after he has completed the form. The only thing on his mind are numbers and did he add and subtract correctly.   The sentiment which says "You just don't even know what kind of day I've had!" is also from Dilly Beans.   All the numbers were done with Fiskars clear stamps.  Martin, which is the name of Dilly Beans' image, was colored with Copic markers.

I've used this gorgeous Dilly Monster image to make my "ONE" Eyed Flying Purple People Eater for this new "Numbers" Challenge. Dilly Beans images are great quirky designs to work with so I had a lot of fun putting this creation together!
This darling dunce girl digi by Dilly Beans has math homework to do but instead she's eating candy! I colored her with pencils and collaged a background of math flashcards from images I found on the web. She'll never master these numbers unless she pays attention to her lessons soon... Hope you'll have fun with this challenge!
 What would be a birthday without some treats to sweeten to additional year (lol). I created the background with Tim Holtz stamps, inks and heat-embossing. I layered it on Kraft and black card. The sweet birthday girl from our sponsor Dill Beans is cut out and coloured with Copics and Sharpies. The sentiment is a stamp from Sugar&Spice. I finished the card with a big paper flower.

For my DT piece for this challenge I have used *Worried Skellie* from Dilly Beans, who is sponsoring the challenge. I have decided that he is worried about going to school. I have used a mini-file-folder, printed with numbers, and added Skellie, printed onto pale yellow card. Inside he appears again, surrounded by numbers.

For my project, I decided to make a tag for my sister's upcoming 40th birthday!  I used "flower girl" from Dilly Beans, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and SU! markers.  Numbers are chipboard stickers that I had in my stash.  I decorated the background of my tag using stencils, ink on a sponge, and Gold Glow Smooch Spritz.  Ribbon is from SU!

I am so excited to have Dilly Beans Digi Stamps as my sponsor for this challenge.  Megan has offered to give the winner of the challenge 3 of her wonderful images.  I really like her stamps as they all are so expressive.  Click on the link above and check out her store.  I don't think you will find anything like them elsewhere on the net.
