I’M MONDAY HOSTESS AT DIGITAL DELIGHTS:)

Why do Mondays always come so fast?!?  The weekends just always seem to fly by so quickly.  We had another busy weekend here – soccer games, birthday parties, play dates, etc., plus both boys worked on their projects for their school science fair.  Always lots going on. 

Anyhow, I am the hostess of DIGITAL DELIGHTS BLOG’s MONDAY HOSTESS todaySmile  If you’d like to read a little more about me and what I do as a member of DIGITAL DELIGHTS DT, please stop by DIGITAL DELIGHTS BLOG.

For my Hostess Monday post, I am showing off 2 of Wendy’s (aka Louby Loo) FABULOUS images, which can be found at DIGITAL DELIGHTS SHOP.  I hope you will stop by the shop as well and see ALL the WONDERFUL images, sentiments and digi papers Wendy has designed.

One of my favorite aspects of DIGITAL DELIGHTS images is that you get them in jpg and png format.   I always tried to combine png images on MS Word, which I know is possible, but mine never looked quite right, and then I found GIMP.  GIMP is a free, image manipulation program and by following a few steps, you can combine images perfectly.  (Mind you, it took me a while to perfect the technique, but once you do, it’s easy peasy!)

For this card today, I used Elvin the Toad, Elvin the Toad background and the blank checkerboard tag (I added my own sentiment using MS Word), all of which can be found at DIGITAL DELIGHTS SHOP.   I put Elvin in front of the background.  Images are colored with Copics and cut with Nestie.  DPs are from Basic Grey, piece behind image also cut with Nestie.  Ribbon is from DeNami Designs and CS is Core-dinations.  Hope you like it and go check out DIGITAL DELIGHTS BLOG.

Additional Challenges:
DREAM VALLEY CHALLENGES – animals
SENTIMENTAL SUNDAYS – die cuts plus sentiment
SKETCHY COLORS – green, beige, cream
STAMPTACULAR SUNDAY – seeing spots
SUNDAY SKETCH AND STAMP – sketch
BASIC GREY CHALLENGES – favorite things (animals) and Basic Grey DP
