Digi Freebie Challenge


I came across a blog called Delightful Inspirations about a month ago that offers a free Digital Image and if you play in the challenge to upload a card with that image for that week- then you get another free digital image for the following week.  I thought it would be a great way to work on my Copic coloring, so I have been playing along- it sure is fun! 
This week, I also wanted to do the MoJo Monday challenge- by the skin of my teeth at the very last minute I finished two cards.  I used this weeks digital image from Delightful Inspirations-we had a choice of two and I chose the snowman- because I am also challenging myself to make 5 Christmas Cards a month........  I love a challenge and have recently discovered Challenge blogs......
Now, if you have any interest or desire to make Holiday cards all year long, the two challenges I am going to try to keep up with are Christmas Cards all year long and Winter Wonderland.  We'll see how long I last......I would really love to avoid the last minute stamping of Holiday cards when I have so much else to do again next year...........
I used Basic Grey paper Figgy Pudding for my card.  I had to stitch it on my sewing machine to match the great stitching on the image.  I watercolored the snowman using Soft Sky, Baja Breeze, Groovy Guava and Pomegranate with a touch of Close to Cocoa by her twigs.  I also used a clear challenge from Pile it on (a digi image is also a challenge from Pile it on-#29 and the clear challenge is #30)  and punched 2 acetate snowflakes, added stickles and a clear dew drop in the center.  2 down, 98 to go!!!
Oh- if you decide to give this digi image challenge a go- please mention I sent you- I will get a free digi image- she has one of a praying angel I would love to have!
Challenges this card qualifies for:
Delightful Inspirations- use this digi image
Pile it on #29 and #30-digi and clear
Christmas Cards all Year Long- any Christmas Card 2 of 5 for me for the month
Corrosive Challenge-Use 2 of your favorite embellishments (stickles/glitter and dew drops)
Inky Impressions-use glitter
Creative Card Crew-anything goes


Thanks for stopping by!

Cute card. I am not into coloring, yet! I would have to start a whole new project: stamps, storage, markers, etc. Maybe later, but can enjoy your learning process in the mean time.sbs1o29

Adorable Shelly, I love the acetate snowflakes. I'm trying to do a Christmas card once a week to avoid the crunch. Let's encourage each other to stick with it!
