Hi everyone! I am a veterinary technician living in NY who loves to pen pal and make cards in my spare time. I have never been good at crafts since I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler but I was determined to give it a go.  I love learning all the different techniques and ways to craft. Follow me on my journey as I grow as a card maker!

OSAAT DT Merry Chris Mouse

Hello again! It's time for a new challenge at One Stitch at a Time.  Our theme this week is Use a Digi. The sponsor is Stitchy Bear Outlet with the prize being the complete set of images used by the DT in Challenge # 190.

Here is my DT card:

This week it was my turn to pick the image for my group and I fell in love with this image called Chris Mouse by Floppy Latte.  It can be found here. I colored my little mouse with promarkers.  Some sparkly new flower soft was added to the hat.  It was an early Christmas gift from some friends.  I am in love with the sparkle soft and must buy more colors! My glitter gel pen was used on the ball of the hat.  I recently found this awesome digital paper kit site called Scrappiness Designs. They were having an awesome sale so I stocked up on digital paper.  This is where my designer paper for this card came from.  I love the non traditional colors. Pink and blue are my favorite colors to use with my cards!  This was my first time working with digital papers. It was so easy! Why was I intimidated? Please check out the kits! You won't be disappointed.  Vanessa was kind enough to explain to me how to upload the papers and resize them. I see more digital paper purchases in my future! I added a glitter snowflake die cut from my stash and a pretty pink flower.  Some pink rhinestones were added around the image.  Inspired by the sketch at Sketch n stash .

I had so much fun making this cute pink Christmas card! We would love to have you link up your creations featuring Digi's with us this week.  To link up and for more inspiration from my DT teamies head here! Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.
