Good morning bloggers hope you are fine and well this Friday morning! Today I have two lots of exciting news to share with you - I will be posting later with the second news, but here is the first one: I have been chosen to be on the Design Team for Cardmadfairy's Digi Days! I was so excited when Jenni told me I had been successful! Thank you Jenni and the rest of my new teammies!! For my first card we were given the task of Clean and Simple - big gulp!! Whilst I really admire CAS cards I must admit to struggling when I have to make them and have only made two in the past. I spent quite a while scouring blogland looking for inspiration and admiring everyone's CAS cards. Eventually I came up with this:
This digi stamp is called Young Love and can be purchased here. I chose this because it looks so much like my two when they were young - especially the little girl. Although my daughter is older than my son by only 14 months he has always been tall so soon overtook her although he has dark hair but I didn't want to do dark hair on this picture. I have coloured it with Prisma Pencils for a soft look. The image has been cut and matted with Spellbinders and then a bit of Milled Lavender DI on the edges. I have embossed the panel behind the image and rounded the corners for a softer look. The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment is by Inkylicious stamped with Versafine. I have put everything on foam squares to add a bit of dimension as well.
Please pop over to Cardmadfairy's Digi Days Challenge to welcome my new team mates and see what everyone else has designed and please enter the challenge we would love to see your Clean and Simple creations! I would like to enter the following challenges:
