Deedee's Fall Warm Up

Happy Monday Morning , Hope you all had a fun weekend.   I thought I'd pop in this morning with another card that I put together with one of the images from Deedee's September Digi Of The Month set.

I used a pre-colored image from this set, but colored over some spots with Copic Markers because my printer is acting up these days and will not give me a good vibrant copy of my digi's.  I cut it out with a SB's A2 Polka Dot die.  I sponged around the edges with SU's Certainly Celery before I removed it from the die.  I backed it up with black card stock and matted all that on to SU's Cherry Cobbler card stock.  I added some little gems, that I've had for years,  in the corners and a strip of them under my image.  I think I got them at JoAnn's, but not positive.  On the inside I used one of the sentiments from this set which reads "Friendship is like a cup of cider: It warms your heart!"   I just love that sentiment.  Well thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fun, crafty week ahead.

A Flowery Thanks

Good Sunday morning to all.  Hope your weekend has been going good.  It is very humid here in the Northeast, but they are calling for more pleasant weather tomorrow.  I hope they are right.  I wanted to make a card for my friend and this is what I came up with.  This is the first thing I've colored all summer long and it appears that I need to shading on my flowers.  I'll do that before I send it out.
Both the image and the sentiment are by a Gina K Designs set titled Vertical Greeting & Things. The hearts are negatives from a MS border punch and the paper was in my stash so I'm not sure who it is by.  The image is cut out with a SB rectangle die and I ran my trusty gold pen along the inside border before removing the paper.  I've cropped this picture on an angle so now the whole card looks crooked.  Well I wish you all a great Sunday and upcoming week.  Thanks a bunch for stopping in for a visit.

Fall Warm Up

Hello Everyone - I've missed all of you so very much.   I won't bore you with the all the details but I have just gone through the worst month with an injury to my foot and back followed by the flu and then Cellulitis from a spider bite.   For one solid month I hardly left my bed but I am glad to be up and around now.  I still have days that find me very tired.  I can only hope I will be able to make regular appearances here from today forward.  So on to my card.  I made this card for Deedee's Digi Of The Month challenge.  The title of this set is Fall Warm-Up.  Autumn is my favorite time of the year so I just fell in love with the set the minute I saw it.  I do hope you will hop on over to Deedee's site and check out this set today.  Of course if you played along in last month's challenge you have already received this set FREE.  Can't beat that for a deal!
My health has improved  but not my picture taking so I have to apologize for this picture.  This image is so much brighter in real life but I can't seem to capture the rich colors here.  Sorry!
As you can see, I matted both the image and sentiment with black and green.  My background paper is from my stash and I do know that I have had it for maybe 7 years.  I punched out some hearts from a MS heart border punch and then I added some gems from Pizzazz APlenty on the hearts and on both the panels.  This card went together so nice and quick which is what I love about Deedee's sets.

I thank you for popping in for a visit and hope to see some of your creations made with this set.  Wishing each of you a very special day.
