A Second Week for the "Numbers" Challenge

With the temperature rising to 109 Friday, everyone is talking about numbers.  The Design Team has created some hot samples for you for the second week of the "Numbers" challenge.  Take a look below what the gals have made to inspire you.
I love playing games.   However,, I don't do very well in winning.  I would say cards is my game of choice.  I chose Dilly Beans' Dunce Girlie with Lolipop for my "Numbers" card.  The background is a digital of a Bingo card,  Embellishments include a very small plastic playing card, a digital of a ticket and a Bingo number.  My image is colored with Copic markers.

Now, are you ready to play by entering my challenge?

I couldn't resist using the Dilly Monster image again this week. I wanted to make a card for a couple so decided to use the monster "twice" on this textured/collage style card. So my "numbers" theme this week is "two"!! It's been great to have Dilly Beans as the sponsor for this challenge!
This little guy from Dilly Beans is traveling the world on a French map game card. I don't know what the game is -- I had this set of French game cards and they have numbers on them so I thought it would be nice for the challenge. I stamped the card stock with ink dots, added the gamecard, the colored digi and oher embellishements. I had never used Dilly Beans images before this challenge and I really recommend them, they are a lot of fun!

Jenn used Ragdoll Ruby Face from Dilly Beans, along with some DP from My Mind's Eye. Buttons for eyes, ribbon from Stampin' Up! and a sentiment printed out from her word processing program.

My card was made for a guy turning 80.
I tried to keep it quite simple. I used DP with a vintage motif (had it for years) to make a tag. The '80' was foiled. I cut another larger tag and tied all together with some gold thread & ribbon.
The base card is a narrow card cut from cardstock and covered with DP that looks like corrugated board. I added the writing. "geluk" = Congratulations. Not counting the time for the glue of the '80' to dry, this card took about 15 minutes to make, perfect for a last minute card. And the possibilities are endless!
What are numbers and years when you are little, full of adventures like this little boy on his tricycle ..... coloured with colour pensils and Copics, layered on red card and an inked and stamped background. Have a good week.
