Using Something Digital

I've made this card for the challenge the International Art and Soul blog.

The challenge to Do Something Digital.  The baking image I found on a website called Design Bundles here.  I can recommend this site for its great freebies and free weekly font giveaways.
I love subway art and this image was perfect as I was able to link it with a Marianne Designs die that I've had for years. The little sentiments were just how I felt on the day I made it, could have done with a cupcake or two.

Please pop over to the International Art and Soul blog and check out what my very imaginative team mates have created.

Happy New Year!

After a lengthy time away from blogging, ( long holiday in Canada and three months of sickie days!)  I am back with cards and other stuff.

Today is the first of the new fortnightly challenges at International Art and Soul. Our challenge this fortnight is to create something WOW, aka white on white.  Please hop over to our blog and enter your creations. Create something white, it doesn't always have to be a card and if its difficult to photo then add a smidgen of colour to highlight.  Please check out my team mates for their fab creations too, gorgeous and yummy!

For my card this week I've used Tonic Studio's Victorian Frame die. This die make a whopper of a card and I'm hoping that it will fit into an 8" x 8" card box. It's going away under my bed for Christmas next year.

On the last layer I've popped a Sue Wilson Dove from a couple of years ago with the matching peace die that comes with it. I glued some crystals from my stash onto the body of the bird to give it some sparkle.  At this time of the year the light levels are so low and so wet and cold outside that Ive had to photograph it on my windowsill.

Roll on Spring!
