This is Rest UP digi by Deedee. This puppy is so cute. I purchased some new Copic Markers and couldn't wait to play with the new colors. The sketch is from Deedee's also but I rotated it, my tag is a pull out and the inside states, Rest Up, have a relaxing day.

My DP is by Basic Grey, Eskimo Kisses and Euphoria Luster. I recycled the black lace from an old summer top and the button is from one of my moms sweaters.

I really had fun with this challenge. I rarely decorate the inside of my cards, but this new toy by Inky Antics will have me decorating every inside of a card. I love the surprise pop up effect.

Isn't this digi great!!! I adore chocolate and Starbucks and if I binge I wonder why I cant lose weight! Donuts by Glitterbabe, how appropriate for this challenge. Colored with copics, and with Glitterbabe Digis you can never add enough glitter! I use red, pink and diamond stickles. Dry embossing was by my CuttleBug Dots folder, ribbon and button along with paper from stash.

This beautiful digi is "Leap of Faith" by Deedee. (See badge to right) I created this card for a baby shower for one of my co-workers. Shes had a difficult pregnancy so I thought this sediment was perfect for the arrival of her daughter. Colored with copics, I used my Soufle pen to add the raised dots on the balloon. Papers were embossed with Cuttlebug Circle folder. All else from my stash. The bow is from Joylees. The sketch is from Teddy Stampers, challenge blog.

This is truly a "recycled card" The image is lucky Bird by Designed2Delight, its part of Faiths progressive challenge. The DP is recycled from a scrapbook layout that my daughter tore apart when she found paper that she liked better. My ribbon has merry christmas on the shiney side but since the ribbon is so old and never used I flipped it, it matches the card perfectly. The button is from an old sweater that my mom had. The handmade flower is from a make and take from Archivers. Colored with Copics and I used diamond glaze to make the rain boots!

Wow I actually made an Easel card! I love the Easel look but always thought they were difficult. They are beautiful and SO EASY!!!! I got the directions from Split Coast Stampers. This beautiful sketch is from the Basic Grey Challenge and the lovely digi is from Deedee's Digis, "Friends are Flowers". I colored the digi with Copics, used Tim Holtz Pumic ink for my distressing. My DP is from Basic Grey, Stella Ruby and Buttercup from Oh Baby. The lace, bling and metal heart are from stash. The digi was cut and then popped up with pop dots, so was the sentiment.
