It's a DIGIMENT Sneaky Peeky!!!! ;)

Coffee of the Day - Gatorade - will be glad when I can drink coffee again! ;)

You are being treated to a little sneaky peeky of one of the brand spankin' new sentiments comin' from DIGIMENTS on Wednesday!!!!! I hope you are ready to have your socks blown off when Michelle opens her doors, 'cause man, oh man, she has some great images ready for you to download! Perfect for any and every holiday!

I chose to use the graduation digiment since Tyler graduates in just a few weeks, (no, we are NOT thinking about that yet - notice I said it is still a FEW WEEKS away!!!!!! - hence it isn't happening yet and my little baby boy isn't becoming a man and all that stuff that makes mamas cry and get mushy!) Anyway, I know that I am gonna be needing several (ahem!!) grad cards, so why not get the jump on them with this very cool sentiment.

One of the great things I have noticed about Michelle's images is that when you readjust the sizes, none of the edges get cropped off like happens with some digis that I have downloaded. I love that! And hers stay crisp and clean - the lines don't get all hazy or distorted, which is another plus.

I used some DCWV paper for the bg and Basic Grey for the matting pieces. All of this was sprayed with pearl glimmer mist to give a nice shine. All edges were inked with black and then silver inks. The silver organdy ribbon was heated briefly with my heat gun to age. Velvet trim is from Prima. Chipboard was covered in black ink, lightly sponged in silver, and then sprayed with the same glimmer mist. Button is a gorgeous one I found at Wally world - actually bought it for a different project, but didn't use it on that one. bet none of you ever do that, do ya?!?! ;)

Everyone take care and don't forget to download the free digiment over on the site to enter the contest! have a glorious day! :)

Beautiful card Jennifer! I love how the digiment just pops out but then there's all these other beautiful details to take in.

This turned out so very pretty! I love the "aged" ribbon, and that background paper. It really does make the digiment pop out at you, but you go back to look at every little detail, too. And I love that button!!!

Fabulous masculine grad card Jennifer! Speaking of grad cards, I have to start working on some...my DH is a teacher and has already been invited to at least 10 of them - yikes! Don't you just love Michelle's digiments??? You are right, very crisp and clear even when you resize them. Love how you accentuated the sentiment with the brads too. I'll be crying with you when my son graduates in two weeks! And he is only in preschool!!! Wwwaaaaaaah!

Hugs, Alma =)
