Blog Changes and Freebie

Hello,

I had no idea what you all had to go through to leave me a comment!!

A new follower has just left a comment alerting me to how annoying it is to leave a comment on this blog!!

I am blushing and I am SO sorry! I've quickly made some changes and am hoping this will now be a friendlier place to leave a comment!!

I can't help but be really, really humbled by the fact that so many of you still left me such sweet comments anyways. 

I really do have the greatest followers ever!!! THANK YOU!!!! 

Also an especially grateful thank you to Susan, who let me know what it was like leaving a comment here! I appreciate your candor!

I'm not an unfriendly person, so I certainly don't want to come across that way! 
*****************************************
Now onto some fun things...

So far we have a Whimsical Pet Shop Digi, a Bakery Digi, and now this Christmas Ornament Digi for the Awning Card I have posted HERE.
 I thought about putting bows at the top of the ornaments, but decided against it. I think it would look so cute to add the bows with yarn or thin ribbon for a bit of a 3D effect.

Also, I extended the strings a bit so that it'll fit the space on the card. You can cut it where it looks right.

That's it for today. I'm working on another Christmas image in my spare time for this type of card.

In fact, it might be nice to make another card with only 3 of these ornaments, only a bit larger...

Okay...that's really all for today!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for visiting, and for all the comments you leave me. It makes my day!

UPDATE:
More Digi's that can be used for the Awning Card:
Toy Shop Window
Shaped Ornaments

Cheers and Blessings!
Carmen

  31. Thank you so much! I just love Christmas ornament images! Yours are gorgeous, and I love looking at your cards! I really appreciate the time and effort you take in creating your art and sharing it with us; plus showing us how to create some of the cards you've made. Anytime I've had trouble posting, it has been because of a blogger issue, and nothing to do with your site, as there are others that blogger will not allow me to comment on. But I appreciate it all the same! So grateful to you and the others that are kind and generous enough to share. Just hoping the person who left the comment didn't mean anything by it; hoping they just have trouble with communicating. Have a great weekend and thanks again!

  32. P.S. Blogger will let me post annonymouse but not with my blogger account, which is fine by me, as long as I can post and say "thank you"! :) Maybe she can try posting that way. You can always type in your username.
