February Creative Challenge: Go DIGI!!!

It is time for another Creative Challenge for My Favorite Things, and this month, the challenge is to Get Digital! This includes our amazing templates, the calendar files, digi papers, or digital stamps…the skies the limit!! I don't have a fancy die cutting machine, and I don't really alter stuff anyway, so the thing that made the MOST sense to me was to use the digi papers!! What I LOVE about Digi papers is the fact that they never. run. out. ever. Have you ever fallen in LOVE with a paper in a paper pack, and run out of it. You still have plenty of the other sheets left, but you MISS the one you used up...with digi papers you TOTALLY eliminate that problem. After purchasing the papers, and then downloading them, they are yours forever!! LOVE THAT!!

For my card...I went in a TOTALLY different direction than I usually do. I LOVED all the cards made by my fellow DT members during this last release, so I was DYING to use the new Fly a Kite Die-namic. I printed out four different patterns from the Stephanie Fizer Spring Paper Collection, and then used them to for my kite. I used some embroidery thread for my kite tail, and added some brads to my bows....gotta have my brads. My grass was made using the Fresh Cut Grass Die-namic, and my clouds were cut out using the new Flat Bottom Cloud Die-namic. My sentiment is from the new Great Outdoors set. LOVE IT!! I made a little bit of an ooopsie, so I added some Pink Plaid ribbon from MFT to cover it up...clever, right? My card stock colors are Banana Split, Sour Apple and Cotton Candy.

For the inside, I used some extra pieces from my kites, and a saying from the Clearly Sentimental About Emerson set. It is my FAVORITE saying out of all the sets. So inspiring. My sentiment was cut out using the Polka Dot Greetings Frame Die-namic.

Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day! Be sure to check out Kim's blog for a full list of designers playing along today!!
