Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight


Hello Blogger Buddies,
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
*insert rant about Christmas shopping here* haha.
I will spare you the rant and get straight to the card.



This is Ruby from Sandra Dry's Digital Designs.
In the midst of a lucky streak,
I was the recipient of 6 digi images
from Sandra Dry's Digital Designs,
and although, due to my inability to comprehend digi,
I let 4 out of the 6 files expire in my inbox???
I guess I learned the hard way that you have to
crack those files open straight away,
I have 2 of her cutie patootie images,
Ruby and Hazel waiting to be brought to life.
I borrowed Hazels witch hat
and stuck it on Ruby to coordinate with my theme.



The paper is My Mind's Eye,
Ruby is coloured in Prisma Colors and the
brim of the hat has a dose of flowersoft on it,
the ball was made from a pearl smothered in glue
and then covered in flowersoft.
The white stripes were coloured and then coated with Smooch.
She is standing in a shadow of glitter,
her feet are covered in it!!
The lace, pins, beads and hemp are stash items,
the charm is by Jolee's, the punch is EK Success,
one of those gorgeous Mina roses,
and I've distressed in old paper and what was left
on my craft board of brushed corduroy and glimmer mist,
it looks really neat, a happy accident I believe!!



Here's where Ruby will be going to play with:
Cupcake Craft Challenge Digital Images
Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge
Charisma Cardz Merry and Bright
Creative InspirationsNew or Neglected stash:
This lovely image has never been used til now, yes I WILL digi!!!
Forgotten lace, pins and beads, flower soft and Prisma Colors,
all sadly neglected, but connected.
The rediscovery of prisma colors has led me to using digi.
Everybody-Art ChallengeDistressing!!
PaperTake Weekly Digi Sparkle

Have a wonderful Monday, stay warm!!
Stephanne

Hi Stephanne - for someone who can't do digi, you have done amazingly well! This is totally gorgeous! I love the way you have distressed the main panel and used the sketch! Your colouring is gorgeous as is your DP and that flower - just lovely...shame about the other 4 digi's...I would probably have been the same!! Shame!! Thank you for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week - we look forward to seeing what you do next week!

Wowee Stephanne, so very clever -- no one would have known that was a witch's hat if you hadn't revealed it! You've done an amazing job with this delightful digi -- the colors are perfect and I love the bright red ribbon in the background echoing the image.
