My First Digi (Christmas) Card~
Before I get onto todays card, I would like to Thank my Blog Friend Vixx, she sent me the lovely award at the top right of my blog, "it's a lovely blog award", thank you Vixx, what a sweet thing to do.
I have wanted to try out a Digi Stamped image for ages now. Lots of people use them and on Tuesday I had a blog hop and found Emma's blog.
Her digi stamp was lovely, so I asked her about it and her info was fantastic.
Emma told me her stamp was one of Heather Ellis's and gave me a link to where to buy.
Within an hour I was colouring in my Digi image and I am really happy with the results.
I ended up choosing 6 of Heather's images as she was having a sale, there were some lovely ones to choose from. Give it a go if like me you have never tried it, I only spent £3 and paid through Pay Pal, couldn't have been easier. Within minutes they were ready to print from my email account....FAB!
Hope you like the image I chose? I do, and it's so nice for a Christmas Card.
I am still amazed at myself being so organised with Christmas Cards, if you had told me I would be making them in July/August I would have laughed. Last year I started in November, and I was making them for others too!
A few days ago I made a couple of cards in Blue, and for me Blue is the new Green (Green being my favorite colour). I think the colour is beautiful for a Christmas Card. It is very fresh and clean looking and I do sometimes think the traditional Green and Red can be a tad dull.
I have used Bo Bunny papers, an adhesive snowflake ribbon from DCWV, a piece of adhesive sparkle paper and the wonderful Digi Image from Heather.
Coloured as usual with pro-markers. Don't know where these sentiments come from, but I have them in green red and blue.
