Digi Doodle Shop Sponsors For Fun Challenge - Fall Ball

This weeks winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to the Digi Doodle Shop.

Can you believe it's Wednesday and in just 2 more days it will be the 1st of October? Well, I don't even want to think about how fast winter is approaching as our weather here is just fantastic right now, low 70's with lots a sunshine, cool brisk nights and no humidity - I'm lovin it!!

Our challenge this week is sponsored by Digi Doodle Shop and they have provided some fantastic images for us to share with you.  Be sure you hop on over to For Fun to see the wonderful inspiration provided by the DT.  The challenge is titled "Fall Ball" (I think) and when you create your project you are to dream of "FALL" but we don't want you to use a halloween theme yet, that comes later in the month of October.

On this card I've used 2 digi's from Digi Doodle Shop, one is the corn stack and the other is pumpkin bunches. Both images were cut out and popped up on the DP once colored.  The only embellishments I used are the 4 orange brads in the corners.  Easy peasy except for all the detailed cutting.  Now if I could just learn how to convert JPG images to semi-transparent PNG images I'd be in 7th heaven, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to do it in Corel PhotoShop.
Haven't learned how to use the program yet

Here is what I've used to make the card:

  • Debbie Mumm Harvest & Holiday DP

  • Copics

  • Flower Soft

  • Brads from stash

  • Digi Doodle Shop images corn stack and pumpkin bunches
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.
"Hugs" Granny (Carol)

Fabulous card Carol, I love this scene :)

Hope you're having a good week.


Wow Carol - your colouring is amazing! Love the deep rich Autumnal shades and the beautiful images. Like you, I have yet to discover the art of combining digi images on the computer, but you've done a great job with the cutting out - in fact it really makes the images stand out - fabulous work!
Love and hugs, Sylvia xxx

*Laughs* my dear did you miss step 0 ? that's where you have to stand on one leg, close one eye and only touch the mouse with your nose??? I've no idea what you doing wrong if your following all the steps to convert jpgs to semis. I will have to take a closer look at the program you are using.
Just wanted to pop in and catch up on your amazing creations. You rock every challenge your in and I know I adore your art work.
