Digital Tuesday Challenge card

Hi Everyone! Dont forget to enter my challenge-you can see post here.

I have another card this week using this time two images from squigglefly! I love being able to make my images bigger or smaller to fit my needs! Truly one of the best reasons to go digital!!!

This card I have made using again-COSMO CRICKET papers from the Jacks world series, and SU papers as well. I chalked the table and cut out around my image. The large image I used is called "little librarian" and is here . The smaller image is called "back to school" and is found here. I cut the scallop out with my SU punch and inked the edges.

This card I am entering into the Digital Tuesday challenge #5 "thank a teacher" and can be found here !! Thanks for visiting!

Well, no worries if you didn't -you can still purchase these images individually! This one is called "Sharing Lunch"!! (click on it to go get it!!)

I have colored with my copics-and used my flock for the first time-almost ruined it a couple of times-but kept trying to get that flock just so! I have used papers from COSMO CRICKET-they are a wonderful company!! These ones are from the Crafting Kit-Jacks world! Inside the card I have used a journaling card out of the same package, and I have also used the corresponding Jacks World ribbon to bring it all together! A few flowers and a couple dots of stickles and walaaaa-it is finished! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Mothers day card-made with 3 images!

Good morning everybody!

I am really excited about my card today! This is definately a huge plus to working with digital images! I have used three of the squigglefly images today! It works because you can resize them according to your needs. I have used: Joys of Motherhood-butterfly cluster-and mailbox bird!

I colored all images with my copics and then cut each out. I used my stamping up diecut - top note-and chalked a road and grass and sky. The sentiment is from SU as well, and is from the All Holidays set. How easy! I was worried that maybe it looked too busy-but I think it is ok-what do you think?
CHALLENGE TIME-want to win some CANDY???

Wanna see Emily's b-day party invites?

Ok-well, these took MUCH longer than I thought they would! By the time I got done coloring the first one-I knew it was gonna take awhile! (A long while!) And to think they will most likely get thrown right away, without a second glance.....O'well! I am happy with them, so I guess that is all that really matters! Joey-you can see her blog here-was SUPER SWEET and inked these gorgeous little cowgirls up for me! Thanks again Joey!

Anyways, I used some SU and some Basic Grey papers, used my SU punches, and colored with my copics! The sentiment on the outside came in the sweet pea set from Pink Cat studio.

The sentiment on the inside is from SU-hugs and wishes. The little boot is from the Tac set-sassy girl. Hope you like them!

****Added on to say****** A HUGE THANK YOU also goes out to Vanessa (found here)as I now have been able to add two more-which was perfect cuz Em is inviting two little boys to her party too-so I made these ones just a little more boyish-Thanks Vanessa!!! here is a pic of them as well.

Saturday, May 2, 2009
