HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND THURSDAY SHOWCASE AT DIGITAL DELIGHTS!

Edited to add - a bit late today due to blogger "forgetting" to post my scheduled project.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!  Here in US, today is already busy with food preparations, although I have to say that I am extremely fortunate to have a large extended family, so I only have to bring salad to the Thanksgiving celebration.  So, once I have the topping part of the salad completed, I will be watching football and relaxing until it's time to go to hubby's brother's house.

It's SHOWCASE Thursday over at DIGITAL DELIGHTS BLOG and I have to say that I am really pleased with my creation this week:)  One of my favorite things about Digital Delights images is that they are sent in both jpg and png files.  The png files are wonderful to layer using GIMP, which is a free download photo editing program.  It has taken me a while to get comfortable and familiar with GIMP, but I finally feel confident in my ability to use it:)

For my card today, I have combined dog and cat from Christmas Carolers accessories set, winter window from windows background set, and sentiment from snow sentiments set.  All these products, and the whole AMAZING collection of DIGITAL DELIGHTS images, can be found at DIGITAL DELIGHTS SHOP

I have colored my DIGITAL DELIGHTS images with Copics, Fiskars glitter gel pen and Sakura glaze pen.  I added Perfect Pearls using Tombow blender pen.  Image is cut with Marianne Designs die.  Sentiment is in frame added by editing using MS Word, is cut with scissors and daubed with Memento Ink.  Circle is cut with Lifestyle Crafts die, ribbon is Offray, lace from Hobby Lobby and papers from Bo Bunny and Papertrey Ink.  I sure hope you like it!


Remember, there is also a NEW CHALLENGE going on at DELIGHTFUL CHALLENGES, so I hope you will check that out and come play along:)

Great card Audrey! Someday I hope to own copic markers. Of course I will then need to learn how to use them;) Also, I am also still in the beginning stages of GIMP. I can change the color of an image and minor photo editing but I am still learning about layering.

This is too cute! What a delightful image, Aud! I get the feeling that they are saying "We didn't do it..."
