Dashing Through the Snow - with DeeDee's Digis

Hip, Hip Hooray, Monday is over!!! When I worked, that thought used to really brighten my mood, as I always dreaded Monday - and even though I'm retired now, there's still a bit of psychological holdover to those blue Mondays.

Finished up a card last evening using a really cute DeeDee's Digi . It's called Dashing Through the Snow. This is the last week for the July Digi of the Month Challenge, so you still have a few days to download a digi and play along with a card. Remember: the set -- "So Cool"-- used on this card-- is available for just $1.25 this month, or FREE with your order of $10 or more. If you link up what you make with it to our challenge post by 2 August, you'll get next month's set for FREE. It's as easy as that to get this So Cool dude.

I fell in love with these adorable penguins and worked up a pretty fast card - after printing out 2 copies of the digi. Fussy cut one, did a little copic shading, adding some WoS and stickles for a little glamour. Used a stylus on the backside of the cut out to create a bit of shaping, glued it down on #2 image, which had been die cut with a Lil Inkers rectangle die.

Might be slightly prejudiced, but I think this image is just plain ole cute! Don't these little guys look as though they are enjoying the snow & having a terrific time?

-Top trim dies are: Sue Wilson Austrian Collection Salzburg ovals - decorative die on top, plain oval (red) under that. Bottom die is a Cheery Lynn Kaleidescope doily. (The SWilson die was part of a recent Crop Stop order). Each die was cut as needed to fit the area.

All papers from the Carta Bella 6x6 paper pad Winter Fun - (stash). Sentiment is part of the digi set, hand cut from a snippet using a Lil Inker V die to get it straight on the v's. Edged using a finger dauber and Memento Teal Zeal and tiny red rhinestones.

Baker's Twine & a silver Elizabeth Craft snowflake - a snippet too, clear rhinestone in the center, and Bob's ya' Oncle, and tis done.

Do take time to check out DeeDee's Digi of the Month and start building your collection now! It's that simple.

Thanks to all who provided some plant-ant suggestions! I'll let you know what we try and how it works.

I should clarify on the clogged up sprayer....this was not a 'purchased' spray. It was a bottle which had some some thickened acrylic paint dropped in it - then lots of added water. This paint had some gold glimmer in it, and I did not clean the nozzle after I last used it. So it is more Operator Error at fault here than the spray paint. Some of the Dylusions do occasionally have to get the caps removed and rinsed out, but so far (knock on wood) when caps are rinsed, it clears up the clog.

Thanks for the visit, come again when you can...always love to have your comments & thoughts. I have one more committed card to finish, then I'm going to take a little break and do a bunch of blog visits - {sigh - I'm BE-hind uh-gin}. Ya'll be good and lots of hugs. G'nite.
