Playing with Digis

Hi Everyone!  
Hope you're having a fun filled weekend!

I've had several digi images from various artists over on CDAC colored and ready to create ... and finally took the time to do just that and would like to share them with you!

This fun digi is from Glitterbabe and you can find HER BLOG HERE.  You can also check her out over on her CDAC group.  Isn't this gazebo darling ... I used Prismacolor markers and chalks for my coloring. The lattice panel is a Martha Stewart punch, the flowers are both Prima & Darice and the sentiment is Hero Arts.

This next one is a happy potted flower from Daisy Doodles.  HERE is their challenge blog and HERE is their CDAC group.  After using my Prismacolor markers to color this digi, I immediately thought of the Basic Grey designer papers for the background and a satin ribbon/Martha Stewart lacey butterfly as accents.

This last FUN creation is called " Thinking Ant"  from Doodle Pantry.  You can see their challenge blog HERE and their CDAC Group HERE.  I can see an ANT that I don't think of picnic in some manner so I decided to use GREEN gingham instead of the traditional red and I like how it came together.  This card is going to a friend whom I haven't been in contact in awhile(my bad!) ... hence the " red faced ant!"

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful remainder of the weekend ... it sure comes & goes by quickly!!  Hugs to you all!


Before I go, do you want to see something funny!  My daughter found this photo on Facebook (of all places) and tagged it for me!  This was taken back in the mid 80s.  I am on the RIGHT ... daughter, Carolyn is on the LEFT.  The other lady was a friend of mine and the GUY was MY boyfriend (maybe I should say boy-toy, LOL) ... he was a good bit younger than I ...but hey, this was in my divorced, single days, I "looked good" (about 50 lbs. lighter) and besides ... I was allowed!!  Tooooooo funny!  Check this out:
This was 20+ years ago for crying out loud!!  LOL!!  
Where does the time go??

I love your picture Darlene!! You are so pretty! Your cards are beautiful too!! Lots of great layouts and coloring!! My fave is the first with the bright colors and the black and white combo with the red flower.

I love the "thinking Ant" card the best...he's so cute. The pic is pretty cool to, I finally remembered when that was taken. When they thought it was cool that "he" had an all female pit crew. Hard to believe after 20+ yrs I'm still pit crewing (just a different team).
