Here I am. . .seems like I'm getting later and later with these posts! Sorry about that. But this post is BURSTING with photos! So there is lots of eye candy for you tonight!
First, the results of my first poll were great! Thanks for so many of you participating. I was a little surprised by the top answer. The question was "Where do you get most of your card ideas?" Almost 50% of you stated you get your card ideas from surfing other blogs! My vote went to the second most popular answer which was "places like SplitCoast Stampers". I had over 90 people vote! Tonight's new poll is up and has to do with this blog post tonight, so go vote over there on my sidebar! I love learning about my readers.
OK, on with the post! Here is my first card to share:
Isn't this image cute?!? This is a Hambo digital image. The inside sentiment says "Thought you might need a little lift". LOL Cute huh? I colored it with my colored pencils and oms.
Another incredible Hambo digital image. Again, colored it with colored pencils and oms. The sentiment is computer generated. I really can't tell about this image, but to me, it looked like they are wearing little knitted sweaters. So that's what I went with when coloring them. I came up with the sentiment and since I used the term "spring chicken", I went with fun Spring colors.
Here's my last card to share:
And again, another Hambo digital image. I love whimsical, and this is such a fun image. I used an MS punch for the grass there at the bottom, and I cut out an extra bunny (yellow sandals) and popped him up on dimensional tape. I also made these images a little larger than most images (a real plus for digital images). I wanted these great images to be dominant on all the cards.
If you noticed, all my cards have several things in common tonight. They are all square cards, they all use Hambo digital images, the are all animal themes, and they are all colored with colored pencils and oms. I normally don't use digital images. I find most of them to be not well drawn (some almost look like they were drawn by very young children). I'm also not a real fan of simple line drawings which most digital stamps are. But there are some companies out there that really produce quality work. Hambo is definitely one and so is Mo's Digital Pencil Too.
OK, that's it for the cards. HOWEVER, I wanted to share with you some photos I took today while I was out for a walk with the boys this afternoon. These pics were taken along the same trail that you "walked" with me and the boys this past Winter. Take a look at what we saw, I call this group "Signs of Spring":
So, you can consider those an extra dose of the "Pic of the Week". Hope you enjoyed them. I'm loving seeing the daily changes as Spring takes hold.
OK, hope you've enjoyed this edition of my blog. I so appreciate you coming by and I'm so glad that you do. I always look forward to your comments and coming to see what you've been up to this week. I appreciate you so much!
Hope you are all well. Hugs to all of you!
