A Happy Hello

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a fantastic day. It's been beautiful here in Illinois and I spent most of the day outside. I just love this time of the year!

Before I forget, I'd like to let you all know that the Digital Tuesday Challenge Blog is looking for one designer to join our team. If you love digistamps and would like to apply - click here to see how.


I came across MelJen's Designs digistamps the other day and just had to get a couple of them. I just couldn't resist the cuteness! This one is called Toadstool buggies.


I heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder, then colored with copic markers. The papers are SU's soft sky (retired) and basic black, and the white card stock is "copic paper" from my local stamping store. Ribbon is from my stash, I love how it matches the colors of my colored image. I almost added a red ribbon, but then found this one.

The sentiment is from SU. To finish of the card I added a couple buttons and a prima flower, and of course I had to add a little bit of glitter to the flowers and bees on the image too.

The sketch is from "Sketch and (new) stash".

I am also entering it to this week's pile it on challenge with the theme "make it sweet", and since bees make honey I think it qualifies, right?
And "Raise the Bar's" Challenge is Color me Happy. The colors I used to color my image are definitely my favorite colors.

That's if for today. I am hoping to get another card made very soon with my other MelJen's digi. It's just as gorgeous as this one!! I have it already colored and the sketch picked out too. So hopefully I'll find some time to make my card with it tomorrow.

Have a great day everyone!! And thanks so much for stopping by!
