Challenge # 48 - "Give Me Five"

I'm a little late in posting (and I wasn't able to finish my sample) as I ended up in bed Sunday afternoon not feeling well.  I am okay now, but I am way behind. so I will finish my piece later.   In the meantime I wanted to get the new challenge posted.

The challenge this time is "Give Me Five".  It is really a very broad theme.  You must have an image that has a foot,  a hand, fingers, paw,  or claw.  In other words, your image should show appendages or extrimities.  The scope is broad.  I hope you find this a fun challenge.  NOTE:  I will let this challenge run until Monday, August 6 at NOON.
My little card was made to look like children's art. The Humpty Dumpty was coloured with pencils, blended and then cut out. The background on the little card was done with pastel chalks. A red fine liner was used to write my message on the little flag! Hope this will bring a smile to someone's face!
The digis from Meljen's Digital Designs are just darling and I had fun coloring this frog with pencils, laying him out on some coordinating designer paper and providing some bugs for him to snack on. Any art you make with people or animals is sure to have a hand, foot, paw or some such. So I hope you will join the challenge.
This little mouse holds the cherry very tightly with its little paws .... I don't think it will give it back any time soon! This very cute mouse image from Meljen Designs sits on a little tag cut from Magnolia and Cosmo Cricket papers. I doodled around the edges and added a little sticker '5' and some ribbon.
Hi you all, here is the tag I have made for 'Gimme 5'. I used an outline drawing of a hand, which I doodled in black and red, and fixed the hand with a brad to some patterned paper with a brad so that it can wave. Added one of my fave sentiments, and that was it! Have a good week you all, Valerie
Jenn made a card using "Diggin' a Hole" along with the matching "Can You Dig It?" sentiment from MelJen's Designs. Animals are great images to use for masculine cards, and this one turned out just how I wanted it to. DP is a digi paper from The Dwelling Place.
I've used the "Dapper Frog" from our sponosr "Meljen" for this weeks creation! I started off using the image to make an ATC which I then turned into this card. I love the little "Giggle" ticket to match the Frog's Grin!

I am excited to have as my sponsor for this challenge Meljen Designs.  They have a wonderful supply of digital stamps in their online store that you must go by and see.  Meljen Designs is offering 4 stamps to the random chosen winner.
