It's Spring over at Di's

Happy Saturday to all of you.  We have a new challenge for you over on Di's DigiDesigns Challenge Blog.  Our latest challenge is "spring" -- pretty easy, right?


I used this sweet little bear image named Special Just For You.  She's colored with copics and colored pencils and I added some acrylic paint polkadots to her hairbow.  There's glitter paint on the flower bouquet and also on the little butterflies, just to give a little bit of sparkle to the card.  I do love my sparkle lol!

Our challenge is being sponsored by There She Goes and they're giving a $25 voucher to the winner of the challenge!  You'll want to visit their shop to see the adorable stamps they offer.  

Be sure to stop by Di's DigiDesigns Challenge Blog to check out the beautiful work by the rest of this sweet team.  On a sad note, this is my last challenge with Di as I've decided to step down from the team.  Thank you Di, for allowing me to work with your adorable images.  And thank you also to the rest of the DT - you're an amazing and talented group of ladies ;)  I'm sure I'll still see all of you in blogland.

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Hugs, Anita
