Take Time to Smell the Flowers

So...... I am new to using DIGI's, and have been buying, them and saving lots of files.  I am sure you are SO suprised!  I finally made a card for the FIRST time using a digi!  It is Sweet Smells by Digi Doodle Shop.  When I saw it, I thought of my friend Christine, and her love of pigs!  I just had to have it!  The sentiment is one I have had for a while and I have no idea where I got it. 

Colored with COPICs and SPICA pens - used some nestabities and some Basic Grey paper that has been sitting around for a while!

Hope it brings a smile to your face!

Outlawz Color Challenge - Spring Tulips

I am enjoying participating in these challenges from Outlawz!  It gives me motivation to just play in my crafting room!!!!!!  This one was a color challenge - with a twist.  The twist was to use stripes.  I added the Bakers Twine for that effect.

The image is an old PSX stamp I never could get rid of.  I love tulips - and love this big bouquet.  I had fun coming up with color combinations with my COPICs for this challenge!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

I joined a group that has challenges, and more challenges. It is called Outlawz.   I am excited to start taking part in them!  You can learn more about this group (and maybe even choose to join!!!!!)  This challenge was to make a card or project that was inspired by a song!  The song I chose was Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper!!!!   Stamps and paper are from The Angel Company.

With Love Butterfly

I recently purchased a Grand Nestailities Die Set of these FANTASTIC butterflies!  I did some playing - and this is what I came up with.  It would be a wonderful wedding card!  I liked it so much, I decided we will make this at my May card class.  The enter of the butterfly is a Stick Pin with a Heart at the top that I purchased last week when Archivers had 43% off ALL embellishmets.  FUN FUN FUN!

Well........ we had spring in March, now it seems like we have winter in April. Only in Minnesota!!!!!!!!!! I was in the mood to play with some 'summer' theme stamps - so took out one of my ladybug sets from The Angel Company. The papers used are all Basic Grey Infuse collection. I paper pieced the wings, and popped 'em up. It looks much better in real life - but I still wanted to share!
