It's "New Release Sunday" for DigiStamps4Joy

Hello, and happy Sunday my crafty friends.  Each Sunday, Margy, the owner of DigiStamps4Joy, has some new releases.  Those of us on the design team are fortunate enough to get a sneak peek and a chance to work with a couple of the images before the release. This particular image greatly appealed to me.  It's title is "Springtime", and it's a very happy thought when we are in the middle of a major winter snow storm.  By tomorrow morning, the forecast is for 15-18 inches of new snow on the ground.  That's on top of the 50 inches already there. Ugh!
But this card, it makes me happy!

Warmer days are coming, right?
I used the fabulous DigiStamps4Joy "Springtime" image, found in the store, Copic markers, Spellbinder dies, My Mind's Eye "Collectible" 12x12 papers, a retired Close To My Heart stamp for the sentiment, and rhinestones from my stash.

  2. What a GREAT card, Julie! You are right in saying the image brings a happy thought of Sprintime in the midst of our winters weather...though it sounds like you have more snow up by you. We did have school close twice last week due to the snow. But enough about that. I absolutely adore you're your card...and the image. And I love how you colored the flowers in the image. Everything about it reminds me of Spring. GREAT job!!!

  3. Adorable image and awesome papers!! Love the design!
