My First Digi (Christmas) Card~

Hi All~

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.

I think digi's are fab...now that I have mastered how to change the size and much less expensive.

Thanks for earlier.

Oh Debbie..when I saw this cutie I fell in love ! Just when you think there is not another stamp you have to have...another one come along!LOL You have done such a cute card! I so love the blue glitter around the edge...and the colours you chose for her...PERFECT!

Norma said...

Debbie, what an adorable card. And she is so very cute. Beautifully coloured. I haven't done much digi stamps myself, but I see that I will probably start doing more as there are sooo... many cute images out there. Love the glitter you used.
You are so sweet to leave such a lovely comment on my blog. Thank you so much--it really made my day (both times...LOL). And yes, of course, use the card to create a Christmas card for your mum. I'm tickled pink when something I did inspire others.
