Special Image and Request

Happy Monday!

Wow is it hot here! Is it hot where you are? I've had a busy day of errands and some work as well as some crafting although it's getting a little too hot to enjoy that anymore for today. Hoping for a bit cooler tomorrow, but I think it's actually going to be hotter. Not complaining after the winter we had!

Today I have a special card to share that uses a very special digital image! This card was created with the new digital freebie being offered at Whimsy Stamps. Crissy Armstrong created this sassy design in honor of our DT member Lisa's sister Jayme, who sadly was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. Lisa has a special RAK request posted on her blog now with a great prize up for grabs. If you're a card maker and want to brighten someone's day, please make a card and send it off to Jayme!

You can visit the Whimsy Stamps store page to download this image or click HERE to go directly to the download. The file is a zip file so you will need to save it to your computer and then extract the files to be able to print and resize and flip the image.

This is my card using the new image Beach Baby Jayme....

I've gone with some fun colors in hot pink and orange and used some BG Green at Heart papers. I stitched the edges on the sewing machine and then embellished with ribbon and sticky gems. I wanted the image to be the focal point of this card so I've kept the design fairly simple. The image was colored with Copics and then I added a touch of Stickles here and there.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Sketch Saturday: sketch - Whimsy is sponsoring this challenge too!
Totally Gorjuss: Bling it On!
Sundays with Crissy: layers

I'll be sending this card off to Jayme tomorrow. I hope you will help Lisa and send some smiles to Jayme too! Have a great night, see you tomorrow!

Happy Stamping,

I've already made my card using a Penny Black stamp but thanks so much for the image - I'll add a link on my posting and then if anyone is short on frog stamps they have no excuse.
