DeeDee's Digis - Mix It Up - Digi of the Month

Good afternoon & welcome. How do you like the new blog Look? It's thanks to Kylie who has been working hard to create a new seasonal look here. If you like it, give Kylie a shout out & talk with her about what you might have in mind. Her link is over on the side bar too.

Today's card is one of DeeDee's Digi of the Month images. I was trying to get it finished in time to play in the challenge, but {sigh} - it didn't happen.** On the plus side, I did accomplish organizing some new dies, cleaning some stamps & getting off the desk & some general pickup. Still got snippets to store away though...from 3 surfaces! In the evenings, DH has been coming downstairs to enjoy watching Blue Bloods on Netflix. Oh do I like Tom Selleck!!! Usually DH watches his preference on another tv, then goes to bed early. It's been pleasant to have him downstairs to watch something we both like. The down side of this is he doesn't want me moving about in the room while he's watching tv. So....by the time he goes upstairs to bed, my motivation has sort of faded into lazy. But anyway......

Check out the links to DeeDee's Digis to see the newest releases, find out how you can get the digi of the month at a great price and browse all the wonderful holiday images that are available for such reasonable prices. There's also a really cute freebie available through November 21. The images come precolored or as line art, so you can choose your own colors...there's sentiments appropriate to each set and many of the sets have digi papers included. They are very easy to use to make cards or other projects. Here's my card using the Digi of the Month:

 
 
- Precolored image of Miss Moose Mix It Up was shaded with copics and some WoS. Die cut with S/B label 4, shaded while in the die. Mixing bowls were from the Mix It Up set, as was the sentiment and background paper. There are 3 pretty papers in this set.
 
- Background paper was embossed with a SU EF that waiting to be stored. Shaded the embossing with Tidal Pool Hero Arts Shadow ink.
 
- PBlack holly berries die was on the desk. Snipped it apart to add as trim.
 
Starform outline stickers were added around the edges for a little sparkle, and that's it! Can't get any easier to make a card than this.
 
So do pop over to DeeDee's Digis, have a look round & be sure to check out the Snowman Soup freebie. He's a cutie!
 
Thanks for joining me and have a wonderful afternoon. If it's colder where you are this afternoon, stay cozy. It's a sunny but crisp day here where we are in Upstate South Carolina, but we're told that some rain (and possibly snow flurries) could be on the way. Big Hugs. 
 
**A very alert blog follower caught my boo-boo about DeeDee's Digi of the Month challenge date. Thought I had read something about it ending on the 11th, but after reading the comment, rechecked & this challenge ends on Nov 30, so this one will be linked at DeeDee Digi of the Month Challenge! I think I'm just hurrying way too much. I'm either being way too lazy or rushing way too much. C'mon and get this delicious set & play along if you've got time!

Loving your new blog, very seasonal but don't want to be seeing any of the white stuff yet.
Brilliant card, great background and cute image, you have coloured it superbly.
Thanks for your comment and I had a hairdresser for 15 years and then this time last year she just disappeared, eventually we got a mail to say she had depression and was on long term sick.
I eventually found another that was ok then a month ago she went on sick, said she wasn't coming back till January, if then. Shingles she has. I must be a jinx.

Your scared me a minute Momma Mary! lol First off I was wondering what blog I had came too, I love the new seasonal look!!! Secondly, I was going to try to play along with DeeDee's challenge with the digi of the month, so glad that it isn't close. I was looking at the calendar thinking, "I thought we had the whole month". lol Love, love the card, your moose looks great with the extra shading and I love the holly-I believe you sent me some of this, so will have to get it out and color it up. Stay warm Momma Mary! Hugs, Brenda

Oh this is beautiful, Mary! I really like your shading on the moose image, and how you embossed the background paper to make a frame around her. The die with the little red berries and green leaves is so festive! I'm so glad you were able to make the challenge, and love the new look of your blog, too. Between the card and your new blog look, you're making me long for Christmas! :-)
