This Little Light of Mine....


My card today uses a "try before you buy" free digital image from Deedee's digis called "Little Light." This digital image was pre-colored, so all I did was add some yellow stickles to the little light on his bum :) I hand-cut the curvy sentiment and matted with some bright orange cardstock. The "buttons" were done with an Impression Obsession button die in orange and cocoa, layered on top of each other and threaded with some yellow & white twisted twine. The dsp was a scrap from my stash. Be sure to check out Deedee's brand new store where you can find lots of adorable digis for very reasonable prices, including several choices of "try before you buy" freebies.

Deedee's June digi challenge is into full swing too, and if you aren't already aware of how it works - just play along this month, and the following month your free July digi will be emailed to you! It doesn't get any easier than that! You can click here for details and learn how to get June's digi for a reduced price or for free (during June) if you didn't play along last month.

The sun finally made an appearance here in PA and it's a beautiful morning! I wish you sunshine wherever you are today too! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Oh Carol, you did it again - so cute and very funny! You used the word scrap, remember I don't mind some back linking to the Playground when it reopens:) I neeeeed to check out those digis - LOVE this little sweetie and a great sentiment too.

I guess you'll have heard this little ditty:

I wish I was a glow worm,
a glow worm's never glum.
'Cos how can you be sad,
when the sun shines out your bum!

Have a lovely weekend - you little scallywag!

Hugs, Di xx

The only light I see around here is coming from this little guy's bum. LOL It is still cloudy and gloomy here. You did such a sweet job with this darling free image. Boy are you good at hand cutting. Your sentiment actually looks like a die piece. Love, love, love the way your made those button and bows. Have a great day.

Yes it is a pretty day, I'm enjoying it, and would you believe I have another stamp night tonight? I know, I'm a very fortunate person.
Cute card, and the sentiment reminds be of my vacation bible school days...
