Crafty Ann has created the most beautiful Digi Image and, for this challenge only, is giving it as a FREEBIE

Here is my DT card to give you (I hope) a little inspiration.

I actually printed the egg out three times and decoupaged I coloured it with Prisma pencils then mounted it onto an oval scalloped Nestie then added some clear bling gems.

Hi all today sees the release of some beautiful Meljen Digi Images and I have just two of them to show you.  All Meljen Images are available exclusively from Whimsy Stamps so if you want to go have a browse then just click HERE
Here are my cards
The first one I have used the 'Yeti' image I think he is a real darling. I have coloured him with a mixture of Prisma pencils and Copics, the papers are a mixture of Basic Grey and Papermania V&A collection.
The second card I have used the cup cake image which I have coloured with Copics.  I decided to make a cross over card and this is a 3x3 size and it looks real cute.  I have used a mixture of papers, Basic Grey and Papermania capsule collection.
I added some brocade trim and a sentiment. 

Apologises for the picture quality the light is quite poor at the moment, I hope you have enjoyed viewing my cards and don't forget to go have a browse at the images both new and old.

I am entering both these into the challenge over at Party Time Tuesdays the theme being Anything Goes Birthday.
Hugs to all.

Anything Goes
Our sponsor is Digital Oasis.

Here is my DT card which I am also entering into this weeks challenge at

I have used an image from The Stamp Fairy.Com coloured with Copics, the flowers I added Cosmic Lilac Twinkles to. The paper is Basic Grey (I think), the corners and scalloped circle are purple mirri card, I have added some flowers, card candy and a sentiment from Mark's Finest.
I hope you will come join in our challenge this week we look forward to seeing you all.
I have made this next card for the challenge at Pixie Cottage using the sketch.
I was very lucky and very proud to have won one of the challenges at Pixie Cottage and I got to choose two stamps of my choice and this is one of the ones that I picked.  They came all the way from the USA just in time for Christmas and I am so happy to have been able to ink this one up.
I really enjoyed colouring this image in with Copics, the papers I believe are all K&Co, I added some lace and pearls also a sentiment.
I am also entering this one into the challenge at Charisma Cards the theme being Pearls and Lace. and finally into the challenge at Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
