Follow Your Dreams Blog Hop--- and Candy!

BH_March2011_Teresa

Welcome to the Debut of the Digi Design House Dream Team! What better way to kick things off than with a BLOG HOP!!! Our theme today is “Follow Your Dreams”.  Through this hop you will get a glimpse at my fellow Dream Team Members, both who they are and what lovely dreamy creations they have to share! If you came here from Stephanie’s blog you are on the right track, if not then be sure to visit our Digi Design House Blog so that you can start at the top of the list! I don’t want you to miss anything… to include prizes!

Since we are all getting to know one another, and many of you may not know us, we decided to start out by sharing a little about ourselves. I love crafts of all kinds… which you could tell by my craft room… I dabble everywhere. I started out with scrapbooking and then was introduced to Prismacolor pencils with OMS… followed shortly by Copics… so coloring has me hooked, can’t get enough! I have an amazing husband and an awesome little boy (aka Pickle) that mean the world to me. We are Lego fanatics and coffee fiends and love to play all kinds of games. Now onto the fun stuff! It just makes me smile to think about my dreams… one of which came true by being selected for this Dream Team!

I chose to use the DDH digi stamp set Noah’s Ark for my card. I printed everything out on GP white CS. The ark and water are colored with Copics and the sky has some chalked in clouds. I added some highlights to the water with a sharpie paint pen.

It was so much fun to pop up the ark and waves. Noah is sure riding some rough waves! I even tucked one of the waves behind the ark to give it more depth.

I carried over the matting on Navy CS to the inside. I just adore this sentiment. I can’t stand flies… they bug me… so I sure wish he had swatted them! One can dream can’t they!
