Just Buzzing By....

I recently decided to give digi-stamps a try and boy - I have to say I do like them! This card was made from a digital stamp from Soft Pencil Illustrations. Now I have to say that usually I emboss my images on watercolor paper and then color them with markers, so it took a little getting used to on my part NOT to emboss the image. I know there are ways to do it, but while I was just "playing" I didn't feel like going through the work. :o) So I printed the image on regular old card stock and then got out my watercolor pencils and an aqua pen and got to work. The background papers are all Basic Grey and I got the adorable little felt flowers from Kutz, a wonderful little shop on Etsy that sells all kinds of beautiful felt embellishments. I will be adding a link to that shop on my sidebar so check back later! In the meantime, if you'd like to check out some more adorable digi-images from Soft Pencil click here. She sells her creations on Etsy and there is a link for her shop on her blog.

Well, I finally got caught up on all the camping laundry and now I'm on to regular old day-to-day laundry. I swear my washing machine never stops running some days. I've got to catch up posting my cards on SCS and then maybe I'll sneak away from the washing machine for an hour to work in the garden. It is an absolutely beautiful day here in NW Indiana so I should probably take advantage of it and play in the dirt while I can. This time of year many of my floral friends are full of seeds and I like to collect them for next year's garden --- cuz I'm cheap!

I hope everyone is having a lovely Thursday!
God bless!
Sue :o)
