Hello Penguin

I'm a day late with my Design Team Spotlight post for Kitty Bee Designs.  Seems like I'm running late all the time lately.  UGH! 

I love Kitty Bee Designs images and there are some great new images in the shop.  For my card I used an image called "Top Hat Penguin".  The background is an embossed sheet that I received in a swap and then I added "thickers" saying HI!  This card has already been sent to the intended recipient to say "Hello". 

And something to encourage you today:


Thanks for stopping by today!!  God bless you!!!

There are great prizes to win!!!  Digistamps4Joy is offering 6 new digistamps as prizes on six of the DT member’s blogs to a randomly drawn follower of that blog and who has left a comment.

In addition, some of the blog owners may have personal prizes which are only applicable to the country they live in. So come on in, meet our fabulous Design Team, and have some fun!  The prize for my blog will be a $10 gift certificate for the Digistamps4Joy store.

The main DS4J blog is also giving away 100 REWARD POINTS during the Hop to one lucky winner, which can be spent in the Digistamps4Joy store!  Now isn’t that a fabulous prize?  There are some rules for winning these prizes, so make sure you read these below!

Flower bulb

I wish I could tell you about this card - the image, etc.  But I can't.  It was a card kit that I received from a friend and I can't find the image info (guess I threw that out - sorry).  But I do love it and would love to add this image to my collection!  So maybe it's a good thing that I don't know what it is so that I won't be able to buy more stamps!!!

Ice Cream Anyone?

I'm addicted.  That's just all there is to it - I'm addicted to ice cream!  Too bad I don't have as many arms as this little guy from Deedee's Digis - I'd be able to eat ice cream all the time!!!!



This image is from a set called Triple Scoop.  Look at the whole set:


For my card I used an outline image of the critter and colored him to match the purple paper I was using.
