When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

Digital design & nails!

Hello, I was going to say good morning but it's not, it's just gone noon!

Just wanted to share a couple of pics with you all and to say I will get round to visiting you soon I promise but I'm having to sleep lots lately.  Just the way it is - I'll get there eventually!

Anyway between sleep I've been digitally crafting using a prize I won from Sarah Hurley, she sponsored the Smash* UK group on Facebook and my name was drawn when the group hit the target of members. So I chose many fab things from her store but this 'Say Cheese' digi kit has to be my favourite! Here I designed a card using Craft Artist Pro, printed it out and then used Some Odd Girl stamp Photo Kaylee (bought from Crafty Boots) along with the little photos, all stamped using Card Candi stamps (also from Crafty Boots!) to complete it.

It's actually all flat apart from the girl, just for you photos and the wooden camera. The rest just looks 3D cos of the clever effects in CAP.

I designed this insert to match and finished off the back of the card too.

I had such fun - just shows Hybrid digital crafting can work!  I thought this kit would be perfect for my Smash books, which it is but saw the potential for more. Will definitely make more cards/projects with it.

I'll finish off with a picture of my new nails!  Those of you who popped by for WOYWW knew I was having them done as a treat, to have a pamper to cheer me up. It worked, I feel quite glamorous with these, pity the rest of me doesn't match!

Take care Zo xx

ooh lovely card. I have never digitally crafted (I work with computers all day...hence my reluctance at home) but your card looks great, and VERY 3D.

And blinged nails....very glam!
