A Sad Goodbye to Deedee's Digis


I've only been a member of the Design Team at Deedee's Digis for a short time but it's been a privilege to be part of the team.  Before joining the DT I'd been a regular player in the monthly progressive challenge for quite a while and I love all the digis in the shop.

As a little farewell I've made this card using one of Deedee's cute digis - this guy is part of the 'Happy Brrr-Day' set.

Thanks to Deedee for sharing her talents with us - I'll miss your store and being part of the Design Team.

New from Imagine That Digis by Kris - Otter Say Hello


I'm sharing an inspiration card today on the Imagine That Digis by Kris blog and I just couldn't resist making a card with this little guy - isn't he cute?!

He is part of a brand new set called 'Otter Say Hello' which you can find here on the Imagine That website and this is what the set looks like:


I've gone for a blue colour scheme and used a Fiskars punch on the bottom edge of the card.

My Favourite Five Christmas Cards

It's that time of year again .... Happy Christmas to everyone!

I'm spending the afternoon catching up on some blog stuff and while I was looking round earlier on, I spotted that Debby has posted her five favourite Christmas cards and invited everyone to join in.

The post is here on Debby's blog.

It wasn't an easy task but here goes:

First of all, here's a folded card I designed for one of my LC Designs classes - I used 'Christmas Westie Postbox' which you can find here on the LC Designs website.


Next a Pink Gem card and it had to be this one as I used my all time favourite Pink Gem Christmas stamp called 'Reindeer Josh' - you can find him here on the Pink Gem website.


This next one was my favourite from the great range of new digi stamps designed by Kris from Imagine That Digis by Kris - it's called 'Christmas Sled' and you can find it here on the website:


Next a card I designed for the Digi Choosday Challenge using elements from the 'Festive Hollybobs' download which is here on the Polkadoodles website.


And finally it was great to see Kathryne back again with Miss Daisy Stamps and here's a card made with 'Alannah and Snowball' which you can find here:
