Digis and a CD

Hi everyone, hope you all had a fun weekend. I was very good and kept to my plans of sorting and organising all my digistamps... and what a job that was - I deleted well over two-thirds of them and still have just over a hundred left! I know it sounds a bit extreme but if they'd been rubber stamps I'd have had a sort out much sooner or probably not bought them in the first place. I think I'll be a lot more thoughtful when buying digis in future and I must admit I deleted all but one of my 'Saturated Canary' images so that's how much I really needed them. It's just such a shame that we're not able to pass digistamps on to others as we can with rubber as I'm sure there are a lot of images I never even got around to printing off that some of you would have loved.

Anyway onto a couple of cards I made from some Bugaboo images I printed off and coloured with my usual Promarkers.

I really do love the words on this first image and I thought it would be perfect for the challenge over at AAA Cards where the theme is 'words have power'


I used leftover snippets of paper and gold card for the layers on my second card along with a fun snowman.

I'm entering this in

Crafty Hazelnut's Chirstmas challenge 'christmas + option washi tape'

Addicted to Stamps and More challenge 'holiday'

Deep Ocean challenge 'lots of layers'

For my last card I used an image from Joanna Sheen's 'Pamela West Collection 2' CD with a magazine freebie paper, Woodware sentiment stamp and die-cut letters

this is for challenges over at

CD Sunday 'up the garden path'

Crafty Purple Frog 'make it manly'

Thanks for popping by today and for taking the time to leave me a comment. I'm just off to the shops now to buy some strawberries and cream before I settle down to watch the tennis and colour some more digis. Enjoy your week.

beautiful card for the challenge at CD Sunday, up the garden path is the perfect place for a garden shed, but this one puts mine to shame, it's far too tidy. Thank you for joining in our latest challenge, Meg xx

Three lovely cards Andrea and they're all very different. I love snowmen so the second has to be my favourite but I agree the sentiment on the first is really great. Barbxx

Fabulous cards Andrea, the first one is beautiful and I love the fun snowman on the Christmas card. Such a fabulous scene on the final one, so pretty.
I know what you mean about buying digi stamps - I have so many I have just put them on my removal hard drive, I don't think I will ever use them all!

I love coming here, great conversation and always fabby cards. The sentiment on the first is very lovely and has to be my favourite, although I am partial to a Bugaboo snowman!! I really must have a sort out of my digis too, I have far too many!! xx

Kathleen said...

Three brilliant cards, love the layout and images on all of them. The papers on the snowman one are gorgeous. You said that the papers and backing card are snippets but you have not entered the Playground, unless you already have last week and I have forgotten, which I easily could have.

Andrea, what a lovely selections of cards especially the dad shed card which fits perfectly the Crafty Purple Frog Challenge this month of “make it manly”. Thank you for entering and best wishes in the draw. Kym (The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge Blog Design Team Member). PS I know what you mean about digital stamps. You have to have them but in the end a great deal remain unused. So sad.
