Digital Tuesday Challenge

I'm taking the 'Digital Tuesday is Just Peachy' challenge from the Digital Tuesday Challenge blog. My first card uses a digi design from Dustin Pike. Click on the picture to enlarge. I used the colorless blender to made the tail and ears plaid.

My 2nd card is pretty much the same color scheme. I've been into peach and green lately so this challenge was right up my alley. I haven't used digi images very much so when I got this freebie, I forgot to put it in a folder so I'd know who it was from. Next time I won't forget. Hope you like these images.

card for Emily

A little 7 year old girl by the name of Emily has been fighting leukemia since before December of 2011. She has had to endure more pain in one year then most adults in their entire life. She has gone from Leukemia to Rotavirus, to pancreatitis, to kidney stones then to shingles, not to mention over 300 pokes in her little tiny body. From chemo to blood draws to feeding tubes. She has definitely had her ups and her downs.

Dustin Pike would like to bless her by encouraging all of his blog followers to send her a card to brighten her day. Emily has a long life ahead of her and with the encouragement of her family and friends is fighting with all her strength.

I used a pre-colored Dustin Pike image for Emily Ziemathis' card. The caption inside the card says 'Easter Blessings'. I really loved this image when I first saw it. I thought about popping the eggs up but hated to cut up one of the colored images to do it. I plan to have my grandkids make Emily a card this weekend using this same design but they will do the coloring and design their own cards. I think I'll mail them all individually so Emily will have more mail to open.
