Exciting News! I'm joining the Fred, She Said Design Team!

I'm so honored to be asked to join the Terrific DT Group on Fred, She Said Digital Designs.  This is our DESIGN SHOWCASE!  We will contribute 4 creations a month, sometimes more if there are Blog Hops etc.  The most wonderful thing is that we have access to all the digital images in the store-one of which I chose to do a Father's Day card with.  I'm a sucker for a Boy with a FROG!!  His name is Nolan and is seen in many of the designs from Fred (aka Tracey).  I think this card truly showcases the way I like to make cards-->loaded with buttons, stitching, ribbon, metalware, chipboard, interesting papers (oh what a weakness!), diecuts, and digis colored with copics.  That's my recipe for a great creation!  The awesome thing about this super site is that there are so many pre-colored images in scrumptious colors-how handy is that in a pinch?
That Frog just kept calling to me--well croaking really-to do something dimensional with him. So I made an alternate card, again for Father's Day, with the Digi blown up larger (ahh the beauty of digitals!) so that I could off-set Nolan and have him hang the Frog over the edge of the die cut.  What a perfect gift for Dad's special day right?  Again I've got my "recipe" going in a little variation.
Well, I hope you've enjoyed celebrating with me and I would love it if you could leave me a comment?  I always love to get the luv~and if you read below you COULD win a wonderful Prize From Fred!

  16. I love your cards. they are so cute. I love the cute image and your coloring of it. I like the buttons stacked on your second card. It dresses it up, yet keeps the masculine feel to it. Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown edwina.brown@live.com
