Flying by to say . . .

It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.
The challenge this time is: Winged or Tailed Things
And here is my card for your inspiration:
I have a bit of a struggle with coloring nicely in the lines with a small image.  So, rather than make a royal mess of a smaller image, I opted to print this guy out at a normal size and crop it to fit the  layout I wanted to use.  It is also a great way to get a different look out of your images.  I just love this cloud paper and it works really great with "air" images like this one.  Due to the layout, I was able to use one of the smaller scraps that I have in my stash.  The yellow piece was also a scrap and the bit of blue ribbon was in my bits and pieces stash.  My favorite thing to do in card making is create an adorable card using scraps!
I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.

Stams: Di's Digi Stamps "Pilot Ted" digi; MFT "Essential Sentiments"

The Paper Girls #207--around the world

It's always so gratifying to make something out of nothing. There's a blogger who makes something with her scraps every Sunday, Stamping Mathilda ( She's an artist, too. You may want to check her out.

Anyway, back to your card. It's so cool!I love how the bear image doesn't quite fit in the "picture." I have many photos like that! And I love how you included both cloud paper and cloud die cuts. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Cut it Up for our Wheels on the Bus challenge!

Adorable image and great coloring. Great interpretation of the sketch and with the plane and image able to turn it into a sky to create a scene...excellent. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and The Paper Girls.

Wonderful card, Heather, and great coloring and texture! I usually color a larger image and then reduce it with my copy machine but I love what you did with this large image. I love your use of primary colors, too. Thank you for joining us at Double Trouble #66.
