May Flowers and A Hop


It's Monday and the 7th, which means we have a new Digi Makeover Challenge and a Blog Hop for you from Paper Makeup Stamps!  There's also new digis being released at PMS that you can see here - yay!

So, be sure to check out the beginning at the PMS Blog for a peek at the {new digis} and all the {prize details} for both the hop and the challenge.  Then if you're hopping along, you should have arrived here from Katie's Blog.  {wink}

I suppose my card looks more like summer flowers than May flowers now that I think about it. {giggle}  Oh well, I'm just so excited Faith, Hope, Love is being released as a digi set!  I love being able to flip and size digis so they don't all look the same scale and angle.  I used Paint.net for saving flipped versions and then set up my scene with the png files in Word.  I then used a brayer and post-it notes to create the sunny day effect like I learned from Michelle Zindorf's class.

Before you go, let me remind you that any rubber stamp inventory left in the PMS Store is on clearance for 75% off.  Just use the code CLOSEOUT75 in your cart.

Okey-dokey - time to hippity-hop to Tangii's Blog and see what sweet flowers she has waiting for you!
