Something to share and it's not Oriental :-)

Hi everyone.  Happy Hump Day.  Gosh, I'm on count down here as Andy comes home Friday for the long Family Day weekend , yay!  We might even get a date night on Saturday and go out for a nice meal together :-)

Kris from Imagine That! Digis by Kris, kindly asked if I would like to have a play with the new February Release.  There are some wonderful digis to choose from and I decided to have a play with the flowers.

I have been seeing these box cards on some of the blogs I follow and I just had to give it a go.  The tutorial for these can be found at Splitcoast Stampers.

I used Daffodil and Queen Anne's Lace for my creation.  I used the pre-coloured images and cut them out with my Silhouette Cameo.  You also get black and white digis in the sets, for you to colour.  Also with the purchase of any flower digi, you will receive "Sentiment Thoughts" a set of 9 Sentiments too.

I so loved making this box card - it comes together so easily.  Here's a close up of those fabulous flowers.

I actually needed a Mother's Day card so this is the back of the card.

You are probably thinking that it's a bit early for Mother's Day.  Well, Andy's Mum is in the UK and, Mothers Day is in March.  Also the Daffodils are quite appropriate, for March 1st is St Davids Day in Wales (where I am originally from) and is the Welsh Flower.  

Kris also runs a challenge blog if your interested in popping along.  Imagine That...Digis by Kris Progressive Challenge and Inspiration Blog.  The DT make fabulous creations for your inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
