From Our Tree To Yours


Happy Thursday!!!! I have a two-fer for you today. Two challenges in one card. Today is Thursday, which means Pink Cat Studio's new Digi release, and Thursday's also= Three Clover Thursday challenge.

For my card today, I used pink Cat Studio's new Santa Owl in a tree digi image and combined it with Kerry's sketch challenge. You wee, that is the best challenge ever. Someone gives you an image and a sketch, and all you have to do is put your creative touches on the card. Doesn't get easier than that. When I first saw this image, I immediately thought of pinks, blues and purples, but when I was looking for pattern paper to match, I had nothing (not sure how that's possible). So, I came across this old BG paper and went with it. Yep, I used completely different colors, but I kinda like how it came out. Clean and simple. This card did end up being 5X5. Pretty big card. I like my images large (hehehe).

What do you think of the new releases? Aren't they super cute? Want to see more cards done with the PKS new release? Check out the blog. The DT did a amazing job with their cards and they are such a talented group of ladies. There are some big things going on over at the Pink Cat Studios this week. Melissa, the owner of PKS has a new tutorial here, which shows you how to use digi images, and she has also included a free Digi image for you to try. If you get a chance, go check it out.
Do you like contest? Do you have an idea for a stamp, and would like to see it turned into a image? Well, now is your chance. Pink Cat studio is holding a weekly contest. It is called the Digi Ideas Contest:
To enter the contest, leave a comment over at Pink Cat Studio's blog post and suggest an idea for a new digi stamp. Each week Melissa will select an idea and turn it into a digi stamp. The person who made the suggestion will receive the new digi for free in advance of the release and will be invited to create a card with it to be displayed on her blog during the new release. Sound like fun?!?

Well, that is all for me today I am off to work and then studying for a midterm tomorrow (last one, phew). Have a wonderful day and Happy Creating!!!!!!!!!!
