Making it shine...

Hello crafty friends! 

In case you hadn't heard the news yet, the A Day For Daisies digital stamp shop is closing its doors at the end of the month. This news breaks my heart as I have been a long time fan of Tammy's art work. I even went back into my blog archives to see when I posted my first ADFD card and it was all the way back in 2012. As I scrolled through them it was fun seeing all those cards again, many of which stick with me as some of my own personal faves during all my many years of card making. More recently I haven't had as much time as I would like to get more of these images onto cards but I just had to take a moment to say my own goodbye to a wonderful little shop. While I've still got plenty of great ADFD digis on my hard drive, I couldn't help but take advantage of the current 20% OFF the entire store sale and add a few more lovelies to my collection. This Love of Birds image was one of them and as always I just adore the moods that are captured in these loose and flowing lines. It really does feel like a bit of magic watching them come to life as you add color, fleshing them out into solid looking characters that totally transport you into their stories. And while I am sad no new images will be coming our way, I am grateful for the ones I have and look forward to continuing to create with them all for many more years to come. So here's to wishing Tammy all the best in wherever her creative journey takes her next and thank you for your amazing contribution to this wonderful hobby of ours. :)
