I actually made some cards for the new releases

Hello!  I bet you're surprised to find this post from me.  I have been MIA for-EVAH.
Now that school is started again, I actually have had some time that I managed to squeeze together to get some cards made for the new Digi release at CDStamps!
I did, however, use all pre-digitally colored images, and I did NOT watercolor these.  I *do* love watercoloring, but find that I just don't have enough time, so I end up using the color versions a bit more often than I used to.

Today, I've showcased the Howdy Partner Color Digi set, and the Charlie Harvest Color Digi set, and the Covered Bridges Color Digi set.

Don't forget to check out Lori's blog HERE to see all the new releases and be able to visit the other designers blogs for inspiration too!

First is the Covered Bridges Digi set.  There are 2 bridge styles and each style is colored in a different season. The large bridge has a summer and fall season, and the skinny bridge has a spring, winter, and another winter one with a wreath hanging on it.
I may be able to make a summer bridge card a little later, but for now, I have the winter version made up.

Boy cards sure are fun to make!   I had fun with this one.  The wacky reverse rectangle die was perfect.

I really enjoy making the long cards, 6.5x3.25.  I love this digi paper pattern in the Charlie Harvest set too.  Maybe because I really love earth/neutral tones, I tend to use them a LOT.

These are all just wonderful! Glad you were able to get some time to craft! I find the pre-coloured digis are so helpful in time crunches!

It's great to see you stamping again! :) I love the covered bridge card! Makes me think of one of those bright winter's mornings right after a big snow storm!

What beautiful cards! It sure is nice to be able to fall back on those pre coloured images, I have been loving them.
