Vintage Birthday Greetings



Greetings!    Aren’t these two young ladies just lovely?     I feel as though I should be talking quite proper when describing this vintage-feel image and card!     It’s one of the digi images from the brand new I Brake For Digis, called Two Friends.   

I’ve colored them in sepia toned Copic markers, listed below.   You know I love the monochrome technique – hope you’re not getting tired of seeing these!  



I thought the new Capella papers from Basic Grey would be a perfect match for a vintage feel with this image.   I also used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Label Six and Fancy Tags dies on this card . . . added some Kaiser self-adhesive pearls and a small drop of Stickles in Antique Linen  to the rose in the hand of the girl on the left.  

Don’t forget you can still use the code SAVE10MARY for a 10% discount off your entire order at I Brake For Digis!   AND, Della, the super nice owner of both I Brake For Digis and I Brake For Stamps is offering some blog candy ~ a $25.00 Gift Certificate until June 15th.   All the details can be found on the I Brake For Stamps blog.  


***I’m going to be taking a few days off this week.  I haven’t said anything prior to this, but we are in the process of preparing our house to list, workers and repair guys coming and going, meeting with realtors, and driving to and from the Madison area to look for a new home.  The realtor is coming tomorrow to take pictures for the listing and I have a TON of things to finish up!   Eeeeeeeeek!        I’m hoping it will be okay with the new owners if I come back to take pictures of my cardz on the mantel of their fireplace!   LOL***

Thanks for stopping in today.  Enjoy your day.

Smile! :)


Isn’t he a cutie!?    I had to post this Mr. Dinosaur card to let you know about some exciting news.    I Brake For Stamps has just opened a new DIGI store ~ called I Brake for Digis . . . of course!    They have an awesome selection of digital images ready for your immediate download.   There are even a few free images for those of you still on the fence about digi images – you can try them out before you buy!

This big guy is called Dinosaur!   For some reason when I saw him, the first sentiment that came to my mind was  SMILE!



I thought it would be fun to give him some bright pink spots with Copics, but they ended up looking more like stripes!   Oh well.    I added a little Smooch in Moonlight to his teeth and eye.   The sunrise background was sponged on using Distress Inks in spiced marmalade, wild honey and mustard seed.    The DP is from the Basic Grey origins 6×6 paper pad, the ribbon label sentiment is from Making Memories and the purple & green ribbon is from my stash. 



So take a peek at this awesome brand new digi image store  ~  I Brake For Digis.     And, if you use Coupon Code SAVE10MARY at checkout, you’ll receive a 10% Discount off your entire order!!

Thanks for visiting!
