Cardabilities Sketch # 66 - HE LOVES ME - greeting card made with SKdigis

Hello everyone!...   Welcome to our last challenge of the year at CARDABILITIES with a gorgeous sketch from Karan.   All of you who know me by now, must have noticed that I love to work with sketches, make the shapes in Illustrator and cut them with my Silhouette Cameo.  I used one of my digital stamps called MARGARITA, color and cut it with the silhouette also.  I added some machine stitching, doodling, pop dots and here is my card for this challenge.  Hope you like it.

JUST A FRIENDLY NOTE ...

Hello my friends!  Hoping you had a wonderful Christmas Eve and a lovely, relaxed and joyful Christmas Day, and that Baby Jesus, or Santa Claus brought all the crafty things you wanted.


I am still doing my research for a new and improved pen tablet.  I have the Bamboo Craft I got about 4 years ago and just last year I got the hang of it, but now I believe I can take the next step and get me a better one.   Any input will be greatly appreciated.  So, in essence, I did not get any material gifts yet, but by having "LOVE and HEALTH", nothing else matters to me.   Enjoy the rest of the holiday season...  HUGS TO ALL! :)

Cardabilities Sketch # 65 - HAPPY NEW YEAR - greeting card made with SKdigis


Hello everyone!  Here I am once again showcasing a sketch from Cardabilities.  This time we have a shaped card sketch and I designed one and saved it to cut with Silhouette.  I love how this card came out, but I do not like the yellow I used to color the champagne... I think is to bright, but OH WELL! next time maybe...lol... Hope you like it.

LET IT SNOW! greeting card made with SKdigis

Happy Saturday everyone! I am doing laundry "again" today, but in between loads, I made this little cute card... I love how it came out.  The background is embossed with swiss dots folder, I had some scraps from Doodlebug and used them to frame the embossed paper and the strip between the punched borders.  I used Mrs. Snowman and colored her with Copic matching with the paper, cut it out with nestabilities and added some pop dots to give it dimension.  Hope you like it.

SKdigis NOVEMBER LINKING PARTY WINNER and NEWS

Good morning everyone!  I want to sincerely thank the 3 participants we had for the November linking party and in this short post I am announcing Rose Miller as the winner.  Rose, I am sending you a USD $6 voucher to go shopping at SKdigis.  Here is Rose's card... isn't he the cuttest?

Rose Miller used Merry Christmoose

And now the news.  We are NOT having a linking party for the month of December, and we will not have a release of new digital images until next year.  I am also giving a recess to my lovely DT ladies.  I want them to enjoy the holiday season with family and friends without having to worry or get stressed out with designs and deadlines.    I really don't know when new challenges will start and I do not want to promise something I can't keep.  For now, I just I want to dedicate time to myself, living an active life, and enjoying the outdoors.   In between, I will do some planning for SKdigis future as part of my life and not the ruler of it.  I have to remind myself from time to time that I do it just for fun...  But don't get me wrong... I will still be here, posting cards and digital layouts, designing and having fun with all of you out there....
That's all for now, and enjoy the December FREEBIE! Hope you make lots of cards using them :)
