DIGI #149 - "FOR MOM" [again]


Here's a digi "For Mom" if you need another image for your Mother's Day cards. This is an image that I drew back in March 2011. I'm using Digi #149 as a birthday card for a friend who just had a baby--I think it will be perfect!

Here the card I made for her [pssssst: I can't mention her name--she reads every one of my posts]

I entered my card at Recycle, Re-Purpose and Re-Invent--a monthly challenge blog after my own heart [and stash--which I use every time I craft!!!]

I want to tell you a little about this card: It costs under a quarter to make--yes, I said 25 cents! The card came in a pack of 10 with envelopes and in this cute little bag. The card is blank both outside and inside. All I did was print Digi #149 on my PC printer, colored it with Prisma colored pencils, used a piece of pink cardstock from my 'stash' bin, added blue ribbon [the roll of ribbon was Christmas ribbon on sale for %70% off--about 50 cents for the entire roll at an after-Christmas sale at Hobby Lobby], and the flower is one I made with a Nellie punch. Inside I used more pink cardstock from my stash as background for the PC-printed "Happy Birthday" sentiment--easy as pie!

Here is a picture of the bag I got from the Dollar Tree for $1.00--cute as is, uh???? [pictured so you can find them at the Dollar Tree]

Enjoy & Blessings!

Leave me a comment telling me the costs of your card when you use Digi #149, OK?
