I did a card that was very easy to make. I bought some of these vintage looking gift tags after Christmas last year on major clearance. All I did was stamp the sentiment at the bottom of it and double matted it. I used some Dew Drops to cover the little whole where the string was, added some patterened paper, a flower and some ribbon and that's it.
Now if you plan on making any Christmas cards at all you might as well do one this week and enter it in the challenge at SSDS. The Cutting Cafe is sponsoring our challenge once again this week so if you are the lucky winner you will be receiving some goodies from their store. Be sure to check out all the other Christmas cards that our DT's did also.

I put a little notch at the bottom on the card pull out and slipped a gift card in there. You should really give this card a try. It's easy but yet impressive when it's done. Also go check out SSDS and see what the other DT's did with their flower pot cards. This week's challenge winner will win some digi images from Dustin Pike's Doodle Dragon Designs.

I'm not going to the midnight movie but have plans to go on Sunday with some friends. I don't like watching movies in crowded theaters and plus midnight is too late for this old lady. hehehe In case you haven't seen the extended preview for New Moon check this out.
This is a music video for Shattered but this song is not on the New Moon soundtrack. I know because I already bought it. : ) But it's a good song and there are some scenes in this I hadn't seen before.
I liked this. hehe I enjoy watching parodies of Twilight and New Moon. Did you see SNL do the "Franks" instead of the Cullens? Too funny!

The images on this are from it's call the Thank You Sentiment pack. Does this look familiar? This was part of the same images I also used the same paper which is from DCWV - LaCreme.

I used just a little bit of black colored pencil to fill in some of the areas of the sentiment. If I was using a card with more colors I'd probably use one of the accent colors from the paper to make the sentiment pop. I just bought this paper from Hobby Lobby, 1/2 off of course! It's from DCWV, La Cre'me paper stack. The black at the bottom on the paper is velvet and I used a velvet ribbon for it too. Very simple card and easy to make yet I think it makes quite a statement.
Check out all the other new releases at Digital-Ink Co. store and go to the D-IC Challenge blog and see what the other DT's did with their new release images.

Another creator at the store is Jules Junk. I love this Blast Off stamp set. Great for a kids birthday or to use for a scrapbook page.

I also wanted to highlight just a couple of the images from the store that I really like. Each of the creator at Digital-Ink Co. have their own style and bring something different. Judy with M&M Designs and the store's owner has a lot of victorian images for all you vintage fans. Here is one of them I really like, it's called Vintage Bonnet 2.
Wouldn't that make a great vintage Easter card or Mother's day card. Oh or a birthday card for your grandma.
Another designer that has a great image I like is Stitchy Stamps. Stitchy is a huge fan of Twilight and so am I. You couldn't tell from my side bar or anything. hehe Well she drew up these fun vampy images of Edward and Bella. I think this is what I think Edward and Bella would look like as kids and after Bella has "changed". : ) She also has some great silhouette images too.
Speaking of Stitchy, my online Twilight buddy! She left me this blog award on her blog. Isn't she a sweetie?! Thanks Stitchy. : )
Tomorrow I will reveal another sneek peek and a couple more of my top picks at D-IC.

I got out my Copics and found the colors that when pretty good with these. Just FYI if you use Copics here are the colors I used: YG03, RV14, RV11, B00 and for the giraffe Y21 and E35. I don't have a ton of Copics but these matched pretty good. The only place I used the blue on the image was the eyes and that doesn't show up very well. Of course, I had to bling out the baby carriage and pacifier. Hey, don't laugh at my blingy paci!! They do actually have pacifiers with bling these days. : ) The image is from Sewn Together it's called Jaden in Baby Carriage. Paper is from Penny Lane called Tiny Dancer except the the green gingham. I found that in my scrap file. Go to D-IC Challenge blog and enter for your chance to win some fre digi stamps and check out what the other DT's did with the color recipe.
