DIGITIAL INK CO. DESIGN TEAM CALL....AND SANTA ALREADY??!!!

Hi all!!! I saw this on my good friend Boni's blog and wanted to post it here: there is a brand new site that is having it's grand opening called Digital Ink. Co. and they are having all kinds of prizes and giveaways so you need to get on over there and check it out (well, after you read MY post, lol!) Hey, I am always up to see fun new things and they are pretty cute!!! And, they are having a Design Team call this week as well!!! For the deets, just go to the store and see what is going on over there!! As for me, well, I know you might think it is a little too soon for Santa BUT I am getting ready for my Santa in September class and so I have been working on samples.....and I also wanted to get the SNR holiday challenge for this week done which is to use a traditional image on a card. Okay, WHAT is more traditional than Santa, I tell ya??!! So, here he is - I just love this image, he is soooo cute!!! I used my new Square Scallop Bigz die for my Big Shot and I LOVE it, sooo fun to play with!! And, check out that yummy new ribbon - it is definitely one of my new favorites, I just think it is soooo pretty!!! It's in the new Holiday Mini which is available on September 1st - just wait until you see it!! And, I am on my Kraft kick again - I seem to go through this every once in awhile where I cannot stop using it *wink* so you will see it some more this week! And, well, I did add some bling with Dazzling Diamonds to Mr Claus - just click on the image to see a close-up, he is sooo nice and glittery IRL! And, because I did NOT want Mr. Frosty left out, well, I did one using him too - LOL! Here is that card also using the Kraft for my base and of course I had to bling him too because you have to stay fair. I used some of the new Designer Series paper for both of my cards - it's called Holiday Lounge and I really like it because it has a lot of nontraditional Christmas colors in it. I got to use some of my new in-color paper called Bermuda Bay as well since it goes so well with this paper. I had fun playing with my new papers and one of my favorite Christmas sets Jolliest Time of the Year as well as a new one called Holiday Best, which is a Level I hostess set. VERY cute!!! So, there you have it - santa and frosty on a hot August day....but I just KNOW my gals taking this class are going to love them, heehee!! Well, now I am off to work but I will be poppin' by to see what you have all been up to as well *wink* Thanks so much for stopping by - I appreciate YOU!!
