Hi Precious Peeps!
Today is the day my images are going LIVE at Squigglefly! You can now purchase and download my release as well as any of the images they have to offer and use them immediately. Is that cool or what!
I have had a blast drawing these images to share with you! The participation in the blog hop boggled my mind! Ha! Boggled the blogger. Say "boggled the blogger" fast, ten times. ;-)
In fact all the lovely comments you left me brought this humble artist to tears. Your kindness really touches me. I'll say thank you to everyone here, but when I can, I will try and pop over to pay you a more personal visit too.
I will be drawing a name and announcing the winner of the blog hop grand prize approx noon EST and announce it soon afterwards. That should be exciting!
I had always wondered how people used stamped images that overlapped the frames of Nestie dies. I am a bit mechanically challenged, and can't figure stuff like that out! So I was really grateful when Rach, my card making idol from England, posted this very good tutorial on her blog! It is so easy to follow, Rach, thanks! Now not much of Oswalda's hat sticks out, but now that I know how to do it, next time I'll make more of the image overlap the frame. I think it looks so cool to do that!
I have to thank Rach also for sending me the really gorgeous deep purple Prima flowers I used on this card. They match Oswalda's hat band so perfectly! Thank you Rach! Not just talented, but sweet as can be, that Rach! If you haven't seen her blog yet, you are totally missing out!
I colored Oswalda with Copics after printing her onto Manga Drawing pad by Canson, using my inkjet printer. I will try to remember that some of you like when I list the colors I used and do that next time.
Hey, this weekend is Digi Day at Scrapbook News and Review magazine, or SNR Card Universe as some refer to it!! They have a couple of challenges with prizes to be won as well! It all starts at SNR on Saturday at 8 pm EST, 7 pm Central. I hope to get time to check it out!
Thanks again for visiting, and thank you so much for all the uplifting things you have been leaving on my posts this week. It really amazes me, how people so freely bless each other with praise and encouragement. And it only does GOOD things for the soul of both the giver and the receiver. I wish I could give everyone a big hug!! xx
