Happy Bird Day

Hello Crafty Friends!

I made this card for my son's birthday.  He is an environmentalist and studies birds. I decided I wanted to do something a little different this year so I paired this fun bird from Bugaboo Stamps and these bright papers from Polkadoodles to create this funky card.

This is also my DT project for Aud Sentiments. Our theme is Anything Goes + A Sentiment

I Heart You

Happy Valentine's Day!

This little elephant always makes me smile. After coloring with copics I painted the balloon and her tutu with extreme glitter paint for some extra sparkle.  I kept the design flat so that it would be easier to mail.  Especially since I had a huge stack of Valentines going to the post office.

Tulip Darling Bud

Hello Crafty Friends!

Are you ready for spring flowers?  It seems like we have had ice and snow for weeks and weeks so I am definitely ready for some warm weather.

The new challenge starts today at Digi Choosday.  
The theme is always Anything Goes but the DT is given a bit of a challenge. 
 This time we were challenged to use:
1. Any Image
2. Spring Flowers
3. Primary color all white

I have to admit that all white for spring flowers gave me a a bit of a challenge.  I finally decided to use Tulip Darling Bud and color her as a white tulip.  This then gave me the opportunity to use pattern paper from Helga Hippo Paper Heaven 1 a little pop of spring flowers.

I can't wait to see what you create and link up to the Digi Choosday Challenge
