Holly Snowman

     This delightful "Christmas Snowman q-24346" image from QKR Stampede is perfect for this time of year.  Our latest challenge starts today and our theme is always Anything Goes.

     I want to share with you a little story about QKR and my early experiences with them.  I think I fell in love with QKR digi images almost before I even knew what digi images were.  Up to that time, I was completely into rubber stamps and even scoffed at digital images.  In fact, my earliest QKR images were rubber stamps (a thing you can still get!)  But as I was introduced to them and learned what could be done with them in sizing, reversing, flipping upside down, and the ease of storing them (hundreds and hundreds on one small flash drive!), it didn't take me long to go almost completely digital!  I admit it - I prefer digis to rubber and that's been true for a number of years now.  Thank you, QKR Stampede for being one of the major factors in my conversion (and for taking me onto the DT coming up on 5 years ago!)  :-D

     I colored with ProMarkers, then cut the image with one of my earliest dies from Spellbinders.  I printed and hand cut the sentiment before mounting everything onto sea foam green CS.  I wrapped it with sparkly, white and gold, wired ribbon and added one of my signature bows, hand-sewn with a pearl and dyed with a ProMarker.

     Like many others, I'm still not back into the routine after the Thanksgiving Day festivities but I have a couple of posts pre-scheduled so I can be as lazy as I like.  :-D  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Loved reading about your journey into the digital world - the same one we've all taken, I think. This is such a lovely card. That colour is wonderful, and I love your Promarker died bow! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges!

What a great insight into how you were converted to digital. I do love the fact that digital takes up so litte space, however I do personally still like to get out a stamp and play with inks (I am not very good at it though lol). Also my laptop and printer will not talk on the network so I have to physically connect them in order to print anything, which can be quite annoying at times!

Anyway, I diverge - your card is beautiful and your colouring is fantastic,

Thanks for playing along at Aud Sentiments,
