DWA DT! and a Card

Wow! I am thrilled to announce that I am officially part of the Digi's With Attitude!  Design Team. My first ever Design Team, thank you Cindy-Lynn! So, my blogging friends, this is my first ever official Design Team creation:

 We could use any DWA image we wanted and I had a hard time choosing, so I chose two images! I decided to use Shopping Tween one of the Tweens With 'Tude and given the current climate of accessorizing with pets, I teamed her up with Angry Anabelle she is one of the Animals With Attitude. One of the things I absolutely LOVE about digi images is the ability to re size and merge them.

The Challenge this week at the DWA Challenge blog is "Anything Goes". The DWA Challenge  complete details are available here and I have provided a brief summary:

•Weekly winners will be selected by random draw. There will be one random draw for every 25 entries to a maximum of 4 winners.

•The winner(s) of the random draw will receive a $10.00 Digi's With Attitude! Gift Certificate and a weekly winners badge for their blog.

 DWA images are not required to enter but if you have them, we would love to see what you can do with them!  So make a new project and  come on over to the DWA Challenge Blog and link it up!

I have also become a HUGE fan of digital paper, the background paper for this card is from a digital scrapbook kit.  I can re size it to fit my card or embellishment and then I am only using enough ink for the size I need. Storage is simple on the computer and much easier to search and organize than paper stacks (which..I still have a ton of).

The pins were a gift from across the pond.  The very generous Linda Wescott had posted a picture on her blog of these wonderful pins she made.  Many people complimented her on her creation and she so sweetly sent out a bunch of them and I was the lucky recipient of 6 pins. Thank you again Linda  I am also going to try to make my own so stay tuned.

I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges:
  1. Simply Create-Do it yourself
