Imagine that Design Team Card and 2 others.

Hi again.  I sure have been busy this week.  I've been sick and haven't left the house since last Friday so I have had time to work on some cards, between resting and naps.  The first card I want to show you is one that I made for Digi Darla's challenge.  The subject was Fins, Feathers or Fur.  No, I did not do a kitty!  I wanted to use a digi stamp from her site.  I looked through a bunch that I have on file, but I decided that the pair of parrots would be the most challenging one.  I Printed the stamp and colored with Copic markers, Spectrum Noir markers and Sharpie markers.  I also used some Perfect Pearls powders to give the birds some shimmer.  I don't think you can see that in the pic.  The rest of the card was die cut, and embossed.  The feather at the top was painted red with a Copic marker.

The second card that I did was made for my new neighbor and friend, who has been so kind to have driven me to the Dr. and all over and brought me food and gotten my mail.  She has a dog named Butters and I found an image that I printed and colored to look like Butters.  I even found this great designer paper that I thought was perfect for this small thank you note.  I even made the envelope with the same paper.  I added the punched butterfly and added some glitter pen to it.  I thought it looked like he was looking up at something, so I thought the butterfly was perfect!  She really loved it!

Now, for my Imagine That Dt card.  The digi image is called Fuschia and Hummingbird.  It is a lovely image and I added her sentiment about grace, that goes with the set.  You can see the whole set, here: 
After printing the image and coloring it in, I die cut the image, along with some beautiful designer paper, to use as a frame.  I pop dotted it on to a bright fuchsia card stock and added Teariffic tape around the card and sprinkled some glitter that complimented the colors.  I love doing this technique!  The vine is die cut and glued over the image piece.  How is that for bright?  I also added Perfect Pearls to the bird and flowers, but again, it really is not visible in the pic.  

Well, that's all I have for today.  Please check out the other beautiful projects that the girls have been working so hard on, and give them a little love!  I could use some of that too, so please leave me a comment also.  We really want to hear from you.  It makes what we do a lot more fun if we know that people enjoy our work!

Till next time...
