Use a freebie digi - Crafting with Dragonflies DT

Hi all!

Sorry it's been a while, but Blogger has been a real pain in the backside! Luckily, it seems to have been behaving today though, so fingers crossed, I'm back...

Anyways... The challenge over at Crafting With Dragonflies is a slightly different one this fortnight. We challenge you to make a card using s freebie digi! You can choose whatever digi you want, from whatever company, as long as it is free. And make sure you link to said freebie, so other people can find it too!

Now for me it wasn't at all difficult to decide where to start looking. There are so many digi companies and artists out there, but I do have my favourites. And after MilkCoffee, my very favourite digis are done by a very talented artist, Anna Stillwell, at Cuddlebug Cuties. And even better still? Her digis are all available on her blog, and free to use as long as you make sure to credit her!

Now, there was a difficult part to this task, and that was figuring out which of the many, many gorgeous images to use! I decided to go with something a little different from my usual choice of cute or whimsical characters, and chose instead to use the more modern and hip Cadee.

And I figured the digi really lent itself to this style of card too. It's more crisp and bold, like I used to make a lot of before I discovered the whole shabby chic thing, lol. I also used to make almost exclusively A6 size cards too back then, unlike my standard 14x14cm I use now.

Now I strongly urge you to go see what the rest of the Dragonflies have created for you, and why not join in with a freebie digi of your own?

You may know a perfect one, or you could go check out Anna's gorgeous selection of Cuddlebug Cuties!
Or, you could even go here, and use the digi my darling little girl created!
(I will be back in the morning to let you all know who the winners of my candy and challenge are!)

Off you go, go have fun!

Sammy, I am more and more tempted to do another card. What stops me? I can't compete with this kind of perfection. Beautiful. I even get tired of that word so let's try excellent. OH well I tried.

So lovely! Red & purple is one of my favorite color combos. Love that touch of washi. Oh and I wanted to thank you for inspiring me to enter last month's Unstampabelles challenge; I never would have made my never-ending card without that prompt and s friend of my mom's just ordered a bunch! So thank you!
Again, this is a great card...didn't know about Cuddlebug Cuties, will have to check them out! Best, CG
