Oh My Gosh! Isn't this image adorable! It is one of the many adorable images at Sliekje Digi Stamps. The second best thing about these images, the first being that they are so wonderful, is that she offers all of the images free. I think I have just about all of them, lol. Each one seems to adorable not to grab. Not only does she do digital images, but she is a painter and has a separate blog for that. These are a must see for anyone. What a talented women! You can see her paintings here.
Anyway, I tried to come up with a more masculine card but just could not get it. I really have to practice these. I finally settled on an image of 2 bluebirds representing my husband and I after we left the restaurant. Very content, happy and FULL!
Just look at this awesome paper. I got it at a local scrap store a few weeks ago. It is so shimmery and the pattern is flocked. My tip is that if you don't have pattern paper that match each other, just use one fancy paper as I did here. It really works wonders when you can't add a couple of pattern papers for layering and eye appeal.
