Pre-colored Digital

You know how much I am enjoying these pre-colored digitals.  Here is a new one from Doodle Pantry .  The color challenge at Stamp TV is lilac and mango, so even though I try to use a GKD stamp for that challenge, I couldn't pass up the chance to use this digital with those colors already done for me.
other challenges: - sketch - Spring  - Spring  Spring - Spring - non square card

Babies, Button, and Bows

Those are the requirements for a challenge at City Crafters this week.  I don't like making baby cards but I did make this card to send to OWH .  It is a little different in that I don't think it will be used as a congratulations card but more of a card to send home to a small child.  The colors aren't really typical baby colors either.  This DP has been in my stash for probably 8 years or more.  Time to get rid of some pieces.  Okay, enough talk.

challenges: -  - bright colors

More Sweet Stuff

Here is another card using the digital set, Sweet Stuff, by Clear Dollar Stamps.
I used the sketch at Sweet Stop and new digi paper by Daisy Doodles.  I love working with the digital, changing the sizes of images and arranging them without masking.

Treasures Worth More Than Gold

There is a challenge at Stampin Sisters In Christ to use something we treasure - bling, flowers, something new or something we have been saving for a long time.  Even though I am using new buttons and ribbon from Clear Dollar Stamps, I am also depicting something I treasure - one of my grand-daughters.  I have five but this image reminds me of one of them - feminine, quiet spirit, enjoying a breeze.  No way to put a price on treasures like grandchildren, is there?  The other two challenges that I combined for this card just seemed so appropriate  - the color challenge  at Clearly i Stamp and the sketch at Pink Gem.

Birthdays Come Way Too Fast

Here is a card I made for a relative to celebrate his birthday with a little humor.  This cute digi is by Creative Studios.  So fun.

Looking Forward To Spring

I forget to use my bird stamp set and yet I love birds. So I pulled it out to make this card  - Card Patterns sketch. The flowers are more of those smooshed flowers - pressing them into a shape while wet.

Bird in Boots

I love this digi by D2D .  We definitely need rubber boots for awhile yet as we start to work in the garden and yard - very wet.    I combined two digis by D2D, the Lucky Bird and WillowWhimsy .

Easter Lilies - Not

Easter card and lilies even though I don't think of this kind of lily for Easter.   Still working on a few more Easter cards to send to OWH before the March 18 deadline. The lily image is by Paper Cupcakes.  I cut it out of the frame that it is drawn in.  The sentiment is GinaK.
