Good evening all.i hope you are all early today as i started colouring this fab image last night so have finished the card off when i got home from work.
as you can see from ny title i am now a proud DT member for Ruth from a A PASSION FOR STAMPS.
Ruths images are fabulous and now i have  a printer i was able to take Ruth up on her DT offer.
how could i turn down the chance to play with these fab digi stamps.
thanks Ruth for asking me to showcase your digi`s.
So here is my 1st DT card using one of the fabulous boys images called PIP CHILLIN.
I normally shy away from male cards so decided to use this digi first to challenge myself.
