Doing the happy dance today!! I get to be a Guest Designer for Deedee’s Digis for the WHOLE MONTH of September!!
I worked with Deedee’s wonderful artwork at Clearly Digi Stamps as she was one of the illustrators. I told her if she ever needed a guest design team member to let me know. As both of our lives got busy at different points we just left it in God’s hands for the perfecting time to have me as a Guest Designer. September turned out to be his perfect timing! He always knows what is best for us as he can see the BIG PICTURE so all we have to do is trust him and listen to him. Still working on that but as with all things… practice makes perfect!
She always seems to have the perfect images for what I’m needing. My girlfriend just had surgery and I coordinated meals for her family since she was on bed/couch rest for 2 weeks after the surgery. As part of her “get well don’t worry about it” gift I wanted to make her thank you cards that she could send to all the people that helped her during this time. So I asked her husband what her favorites were and he said the color blue and Daffodils. So I went with Daffodils and made 20 Thank You cards for her.
I used Spring Blocks because of this beautiful image of Daffodils! While looking for a sketch I saw that it was the 5th Saturday at Sketch Saturday so you get to use any past sketch from #215 – 324. So I started browsing their sketches and found sketch # 225. You can’t tell but I printed a 2nd image and cut out the full flower and pop dotted on top of the image to make it more real. I wanted a border around the border to help it pop so I just printed the image on bazzill white and just left a white border. I dug out some old yellow gems and they were perfect!
I hope you will come back each Wednesday as that is “my day” to be featured at Deedee’s Digis.
