Tweet Birthday Gift

I found the most incredible monthly digi club! Sit down so I can tell you all about it! :)

Get this... Designed2Delight has a monthly challenge at their Delightful Inspiration Blog. The challenge itself is called the FREE Stamp of the Month Challenge. Guess what it entails? :) Part of the challenge is that you do have to use her digi. You buy the first one... if you continue to participate in each monthly challenge... you will continue to get the following digis... FREE! Can you believe it!?! I could hardly believe it! I had to read it several times to make sure I was understanding it correctly... we ALL know my history with reading guidelines! :-\ Isn't that the most awesome thing you've ever heard?!? Go read it yourself!

Faith Skrdla started this in September with the first lucky players getting their first digi free. If you missed out on the digi, you now have to buy one which is why I bought in. December's challenge featured digi is Tweet Birthday Gift. I did a terrible thing! In my excitement... I forgot to photograph the image to show you how I colored it... so I have to show you the card right off the bat. 

I used the following Copic markers to color the image:

Blacks: N8, N6, N4
Blues: B00, B04
Browns: E13, E15
Pinks: R20, R43
Greens: YG41, YG45
Yellows: Y19
Skintone: E00, E11, R20

I have had a mission for several months. I can't remember if I have shared it here before but I guess this is as good a time to share it as ever. :) I am determined to use ALL my stash... before I graduate from nursing school in December 2015. I am allowing myself to buy tools and adhesives... but NO MORE paper or rubber stamps. There's a few clear stamp sets I still feel I need... and I might buy a digi image here and there... but NO MORE supplies. I. Mean. It. I! Mean! It! :-\ All I have is sinful! 

When I was in the hospital after being diagnosed with leukemia all I could think was of the mess I left for my young adults to deal with. They both just had birthdays so now they are 25 and 27 but they are still young. I've spent the past 16 months straightening out my finances and leaving clear concise instructions should something unforeseen happen to me... and I have been using my stash... making cards... altering cans and boxes... making mini albums and scrapbooks to gift. I don't want to leave a mess... that cannot be my legacy. :-\

So I am happy to tell you... all the paper and card stock are from my stash. The flowers are made from scraps using a mini heart punch and rhinestones from Michael's $1 bins. The birthday sentiment is from a clear stamp set Talking in Circles from Raisin Boat.

Awesome! lol ;) I am dwindling away at my stash and I am very pleased! lol 

Thanks for stopping by! Please leave a comment so I'll know you were here. :)
