Ladybug Crafts - Bows
Daisy Doodles - Anything Goes
Sweet Stamping - Glitter, Sparkle and Shine

Frizzy Jynx - Saturated Canary

This is my first attempt at blogging - I know, I've been living under a rock for years! LOL!  This card was made with a saturated canary image.  Krista Smith does such an amazing job.  I look forward to each and every release.  I've made a home for quite a few of these digis, they are so addictive.  I bet you can't own just one, or at least, I can't - there should be a support group for that!  LOL!  They touch your heart and make you smile, and quite often resemble someone in your life - they're like family.  I'm entering my card in the following challenges:

Totally Gorjuss - Star
