My First Hybrid!

Good morning everyone! Boy I hate being a slacker but I sure have been these last few weeks! And I really need to get busy, busy stamping!! My allergies have been kicking my butt this last week! UGH!! Finally, last night, I think I had a break-through. I blew my nose and I could breathe!! And I slept awesome!! And this morning my ears are even opening up and my head doesn't hurt! Could I really be feeling better? I hope so!! Can you believe that it is supposed to rain all week and barely get out of the 60's? The central mountains are even under a winter advisory!!! Ha! It is the middle of May, right? Well, at least it won't be so stinkin' hot this weekend when Nick's team plays their soccer tournament. That will be nice!

O.k. I am so excited to share my card today!! I downloaded some new images for My Digital Studio yesterday and I was determined to make a card with them! You see, Friday is the Control Freak monthly blog tour and the theme is Father's Day/masculine projects. Well, I needed some more variety so I went digital! Lots of people are doing it (lol). Anyway, for this card I printed off the sailboat image on Crumb Cake cardstock. The image is actually in Early Espresso ink (or pretty darn close - depends on your printer). And that strip of designer paper? Yup! That's printed off, too!! I added some white highlights to the boat with my gel pen. The greeting and punch and sponging and baker's twine and cardstock are all my additions as well. I love it! Getting the digital images makes it so that you can have the stamp in any size! And the digital images take up less room - lol!! I am excited to do more of these kind of cards! Make sure to stop by tomorrow for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday challenge and then on Friday for the Control Freak blog tour! Have a super day!
