A New Adventure

Hello!  Today I have some exciting news for you.  One of my good on-line friends, Diane, started her own on-line digital stamp company  called 'Daydream Designs' and asked me to be one of her new designers.  I have to admit, at first I was a little hesitant, because I am usually sooooo overwhelmed and busy with work, church, family, house, etc., but I have so enjoyed working with Diane on a previous design team and her requirements seemed very flexible, that I decided to give it a go.  I've always enjoyed working with Diane's images, but most of all her sentiments.  So many digital designers have great images, but no sentiments to go with them.  I've always found it a bit frustrating to have 'search for that perfect sentiment' to go with the image.  Diane is so wonderful with words (just go read her Blog and you'll see) that creating  touching sentiments is second nature to her.

Today I am going to show you a brand new set that Diane created called 'Nest to Sky'.  I'm an avid bird lover so I thought this set would be the perfect one to use to launch off my new design team announcement.  I used a sketch from The Deconstructed Sketch (Sketch 65) and paper from My Mind's Eye Stella Rose 'Gertie'.  The circles and ovals are Nestabilities, and the clouds and flower is from MFT.  I added some brads and pearl for embellishment.  This image is available in both outline and pre-colored.  I used the pre-colored version since I'm very short on time today.  And my sentiment is retired Stampin Up! 'A Little Birdie Told Me'.  The inside of the card reads 'it's your birthday!'.

Diane gathered together a lot of great papercrafters to be on her 'dream team'.  They are all listed in my sidebar for you to visit!

Have a great day! Amy
