Sweet Escape Digis - Music

This is a 13 year old birthday card I made for a friend's niece.  It is hard to know what to choose for that age group, but I knew Sweet Escape would have the perfect image.  Berenice has an Etsy shop and this is the link https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/SweetEscapeDigis?ref=l2-shopheader-name

Outlawz Progressive Challenge - September 2017

September's Outlawz Progressive Challenge features one of my favourite pets.  Thank you Anne Fenton, a very talented DT member of the Outlawz Challenges.  Anne has called the image, drum roll please, "Cat".  I have designed a birthday card to suit the image.  Anne's blog is called Anne's Digital Art and can be found here https://annesdigitalart.blogspot.com.au/.  Check her blog out, you will be pleasantly surprised by her portraits of animals.  She is a very good artist and colourist.

Createful Heart Digis & Design "Bouquet of Red Poppies"

Today I have decided to use "Bouquet of Red Poppies digital stamp from Createful Heart Digis & Design for my first go at the Outlawz "Sketch Challenge".  I had just finished colouring it in orange shades (I have to be different from the title) and decided to go looking as to what to do with it, into the Outlawz Challenges vault I went and signed up for the Sketch Challenge.  I really love this layout, so clean and simple.  I have gone with "Make it Crafty" chipboard in the small size, as truth be known I probably did the digital stamp a little big, before I knew what I was going to create with it.  I just love flower stamps and Mary at Createful Heart Digis & Design has some beauties.  I think I might have told you that in a previous post.  You can check out the Etsy store here https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/Createfulheartdigis.  I think I am going to stock up on some more of Zoe's chipboard too. http://www.makeitcrafty.com/chipboard-embellishments.html

Createful Heart Digis & Design "Old Fashioned Rose"

I just love flower digis to work with, they are so versatile to use on any type of card.  I have added to my flower collection with some beautiful specimens from Createful Heart Digis & Design.  I guess if you don't have much success in your actual garden at home, which is the case with me, especially when you have taken in as a boarder, a 17 year old grandson and his mischievous blue cattle dog.  I have just given up on the garden, so why not indulge with some more flower stamps from https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/Createfulheartdigis?section_id=20966987. If you buy before 30th September 2017 you will be lucky enough to get a 10% discount, just read the announcement section at the top of the shop. 

I am going to enter this sympathy card in The Outlawz Challenge Paper ala Mode Saturday:

Bugaboo Stamps - Stella CRS

I chose this digi to enter the Kit and Clowder 15000 member party "Crayon Challenge.  I love Stella, this one is a bit naughty, but a great sentiment for forgetting a birthday.  The crayons were easy to use on the big spaces like the letters, but not so on the hair, but Alyce is trying to teach us not to be a perfectionist with all we do, hence the challenge.  Most entrants just submitted their coloured images, but I could not resist turning mine into this card. If you are looking for this Stella CRS image, here is the link https://bugaboostamps.com/products/stella-crs
