New digital images to play with

There's a BUNCH of new digital images released today at CDS!  Check out Lori's blog for all the previews and links to the sets.

I was able to color one image and make a set of 3 cards using pre-color images.
My sewing machine had something stuck in it for a few weeks, but finally got it fixed and can sew again!   I'm so happy!

These Antique ornaments used to be a clear stamp set, but now they are digital and with color versions and matching digi papers!  I colored the bird image this time, but I have the images printed and might make some quick cards later this month.  I just LOVE to color when I have the time.  I used some shimmer watercolors overtop the blue and cream areas and it looks so vintagey!  This card is the first project to get the marina mist ribbon... I had to open the roll to use it.  LOOOOOVE the smell of BRAND NEW ribbon.  I think I bought it over a year ago and it had been sitting on the ribbon shelf ALL this time, being completely ignored.  Bad me!

The Holiday nutcrackers was also previously a clear stamp set, but now is available in digital format, with the color versions and matching digi papers!  I just love how festive they look and with bright cheery colors.  I got play with punches!  I knew this set would be so much fun to go through my punch shelf and pick different borders for the nutcracker men.  So many wonderful designs on the papers... this set would almost be worth it to buy JUST for the pretty holiday papers!

Laurie thanks so much for designing these guys. I so love this set and had so much fun using them. Your cards are stunning to say the lease and digital colouring is amazing. I could have made my cards much faster using the precoloured images, but I am a gal who loves to colour and these images were just calling my name. Thanks again for all you do and for the creativity that flows from your fingers. Praising God for your talent and skills. Hugs.
