When I hear the words May Day, I think of someone out on the high seas, holding a microphone, calling MAYDAY, MAYDAY... I hope you're not going to have that sinking feeling when I announce the Die Cut DIvas' challenge for this month....  DRUM ROLL PLEASE!

Anything BUT a Card!

I am not considering an Artist Trading Card (ATC) to be a card this month.  I see all too few of them in the blog challenge entries on any challenge, so please think about making an ATC.  Go to Wikipedia for a definition of an ATC.

Our fabulous sponsor this month is BUGABOO DIGI STAMPS!  Bugaboo is a digital stamp company and they have crazy stamps, cute stamps, and catch your breath, beautiful stamps.  You can search for a specific type of stamp or just bounce around and peek wide-eyed at all the digital images.  I bounced for a time, wrote down stamp names and ordered those "I can't do without that stamp" stamps.  Their stamps are fun to color and sentiments fun to read.  There's a free digital stamp every Friday, so please visit Bugaboo Digi Stamps to catch your freebie!

Remember, you have to use a die-cut or something embossed from your machine.  You do NOT have to use a Bugaboo Digital in your creation.  However, if you use a Bugaboo Digital, I will award 3 chances to win.  If you do not use a Bugaboo Digital, I will award  one chance to win.  You MUST also let us if you are using a Bugaboo stamp or you won't be awarded your 3 chances.   Do remember that Bugaboo has free digital stamps on Friday.

Our brilliant Divas have been busy making a sample for this post.  Let's bring them on!

Anything but cards
Right what I needed. Card making has taken over me that I have ignoring other projects. Thnks for this push

I won the Stamping Bella - Say cheese Bella in your February Challenge, I thought I'd share the ATC I made with it for ATC from Canada 150 Years of Photography challenge here too.
Thanks again!
