Do The Hula!

Wow, I am having so much fun with our new sponsors. I really felt like I was doing the Hula when I was creating my card for Dustin Pike Images. They are all just so SWEET!!! I was so happy with the outcome of my "Do the Hula!" card.

Our sponsor for this week is Dustin Pike at

You will want to play along with any stamps you may have.  If your card is chosen as the winner for this week's challenge, you will have the opportunity to choose three digis from Dustin Pike's Doodle Dragon Studios site.

Below is an introduction from Dustin Pike and how he started his business.

I started DoodleDragonStudios after an email from a longtime friend told me my style would be perfect for digital stamps. I had no clue what they were so did some searching, drew a few, threw them on etsy and they sold out almost as fast as I could load them. Decided it'd be easier to have them on a site where they wouldn't sell out and that's how DoodleDragonStudios came to be...

As far as my style. I am a cartoon junkie, still pay for premium satellite TV just to get cartoon network Boomerang. AND I have the imagination of a 6 year old. I was influenced by Disney of course, but also Hannah Barbera, The smurfs, anything Jim Henson did, mainly Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. On PBS there was a show called "the Secret City" a drawing show hosted by Mark Kistler, he's still around and on the web I learned so much from his show. I think I might have borrowed some of my look and style from him, mixing it with a little Disney, Henson and anything else I could throw in there...
