My First Digital Happy Birthday Card Made In Dallas

Well I finally made my first digital cards. I actually downloaded them and placed them on card stock in my office during my lunch. I found this cute little stamp at Tiddly Inks it was one of their freebies. Then I used my little Crayola Crayon Markers that I picked up for $3.99 and colored them in. I have to admit that it was very difficult as I had so few colors to choose from! I think I just may invest in some better markers for the future!
When I got to Dallas I used my glossy accents on his little nose and the balloons and let it dry overnight. I used my Creative Memories oval cutters to cut out 'Bo' and the scrap papers was little paw prints that Melissa had left over from one of her beautiful projects.  Then I was ready to put it together.

See how easy that was. I really like how you can make a card this fast and it looks really adorable.  I learned a lot making this card. I decided that I like the background filled rather than today's oval which is what you saw yesterday. I thought I had to cut it out so it was really great having Melissa there for the next card to show me how to make this adorable card look even nicer! I am showing this as you need to know we go through learning processes also. That is the beauty of having a blog to learn from, But even better you could have a friend to show you the ropes. The beauty of the learning process is you still have wonderful cards to give to the people you love. I gave this to my daughter in law for her birthday as she loves dogs and I knew she would just love this card.
I sure hope you enjoyed today's post and you learned something you can use. Thank you for your sweet - sweet words of encouragement. Your comments continue to inspire me.
