A Card For Sandi
Sandi Huggett of Sandi's Samples has been very generous with her digis on her blog and on The Outlawz Free Digis group. She draws a wide variety of images from funny cartoons (You should see her WonderBabe) to monster trucks to the delicate 2-part butterflies that I used on my card.
I used her outline image on the bottom and layered it with the detailed image. Of course, two butterflies are better than one, so I colored them (with dye-ink markers) each differently.
The little squares are tiles I bought last week at a yard sale. The people had an interior design store that went out of business. I bought a display board of the shiny & iridescent tiles for $2. The only problem is taking them all off. It might take a while.
The gold net was also a yard sale find. I think I paid a quarter or it might have been a freebie; I can't remember exactly.
The sentiment is mine. I'd like to try coming up with more original sentiments and verses. My DH bought me a Font software package a few weeks ago which is really nice. It would be even nicer to be able to create sentiments with different shapes and designs. That is something I would like to learn to do.
Thanks to everyone who has been faithfully following this blog and leaving lots of love for me. It really does brighten my day. I'm trying to think of something nice I can do for you. Any suggestions?
Well, tomorrow morning I will head into the wild of yard sale-ing once more to see what other interesting things I can find. Just wondering - do any of you look for card materials or embellishments in non-traditional places?
