Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

I Did It.....Now You Do It

Be Creative
Open Challenge

This week we are sponsored by Trees aWard in Digital Stamps
Teresa has graciously offered a freebie to use for this challenge, here.
Follow the link to see more beautiful creations by the DT
using Teresa's lovely digi stamps. She even has a card that
she made on display. Don't miss it. It is stunning.

Now, I couldn't make up my mind which image I wanted
to use this week for the challenge. So I mixed and matched and
used 2 of Teresa's images. I added the sandbox and the truck from
my clip art collection.
My creative juices came up with this card.

The theme is 'Be Creative'. I think this is pretty creative. It's just
another example of what you can do with ease with digi stamps.
A little resizing here, a little add on there, print all in black and white.
Ta da......all ready to color. I colored with chalks. I made my image
to large to put on a background so I layered it and added photo
corners. If you look at the original digi, here, 'little Joey' is really
at the beach. My 'little Joey' doesn't live near the beach, so.....
a sandbox it is.

My second sample is for a challenge that begins this a.m.
at I Did It, Stitchy Bear Did It, U Do It 2 Forum

I have been dying to use these tiny playing cards for such a long time.
I thought this worked pretty good. To make my bookmark I scanned
in a book cover. I cropped and sized for my needs.
Added the bright red text and printed. I trimmed it down and
added the playing card in the space that I left. Punched 2 red hearts
and added some fiber. This only took me about 15 mins start to finish.
And, I like it.

You are welcome to come join me in both of these challenges.
