A - Just Because it's Monday - Kinda Post!

Happy Monday to you all, my friends!

I had opportunity to have some fun playing with a wonderful new digi image. There's a great new artist in town that I'd like to tell you about. Her name is Wendy Burns and she's recently opened an Etsy shop called Wendyburnsdesign where she sells her fabulous images.  You can find Wendy's blog HERE and see more of your amazing talent!

The image I used on my card is called "I Love My Puppy" and it can be found right HERE. If you purchase this image you actually get 4 options with it. One is the entire image as I have used it. Then you also get each of the components individually; the flowers, the puppy, and the pretty little girl. I just love the sweet and whimsical style! With all four files you have unlimited options of what you can create! This sweet image has inspired me to try something else that I hope to share with you in a future post!

Also, with this project, I have created my first center step card. They've been appearing everywhere and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to try it! I have actually made this card for a very special sweet young niece Rachel. I recently received some mail from Rachel that she sent "the old-fashioned way" - those are her words! lol This mail included a beautiful letter and a fabulous piece of artwork that she made for me! I can see her becoming a famous digital artist in the future, as she has amazing artistic talent! When she was tiny, she would draw stick people like you have never seen before, the detail was incredible!

Here is my card! I'm sorry about the shadows...the sun hasn't been out for days!

Here's a side angle:

Materials Used:
Papers: Prima - Sparkling Spring, Recollections Carstock;
Image: Wendy Burns Design - I Love My Puppy;
Prismacolor Pencils and OMS;
Punches: EK Success Border Punch - Scalloped Scallop,
Flowers: Mini flower punches from Recollections, Fiskars, and EK Success;
Die: Stampin' Up Sizzix Embosslit -  Beautiful Wings;

So pop on over to Wendy's shop HERE and take a peek at the rest of her lovely and whimsical designs!
Hope your day is full of sunshine...mine is starting to appear! :o)

Hi Nancy! This card is absolutely AMAZING! I love this cool fold/cut and I will admit that I have never made one, and don't know if I could. It's just darling from top to bottom. Thanks so much for sharing it in our challenge this week.
Blessings to you,
