DZ Doodle Candy Cane Kisses!

Coffee of the Day - Vanilla Biscotti (yep, it's a coffee flavor, and it's yummy, too!)

Well you coulda knocked me over with a feather the other day when I received a wonderful email message from Kim of DZ Doodles. She and Diane, the owner, were asking me to be a GUEST DT member for today's new releases!!!! boy howdy, was I ever excited!!!! of course I said a VERY LOUD 'YES' with lots of exclamation points (I think they might have actually heard me, too!! grins!!)

So without further adieu, let me show you this beautiful new candy cane digi from DZ DOODLES.........

Isn't it just gorgeous?!?! I love the versatility of this beautiful candy cane with the poinsettia. The coloring is all watercolors, but then I painted over most of it with either shimmerz, blingz, or stickles. There is so much shine on this baby you need to get out your shades to gaze upon it's fine-ness! giggles! (actually the fine-ness all comes from the very talented Diane who drew this, not me at all!) There is a light wash of pale blue around the candy canes, but it doesn't show well in the scan. it really helps them to pop off of the cs irl.

The papers are Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses and Daisy D's (peppermint stripe). The leaf and flower are by Prima. I took this plain little vintage button and painted it with beeswax shimmerz to mimic the coloring of the pointsettia center. now it sparkles and shines and has lots of character! dress up plain buttons with a little glitz, and make them feel like the belle of the ball! :) tied on a satin ribbon, popped up the main image on foam tape, did some inking to the card base with white craft ink, and we have 1 more Christmas card complete!!!

Here is another card I have made using one of their fun digis - Pumpkin Time. This is not a new release, but one that came out for World Card Making Day. Again, the papers are Basic Grey, but the Indian Summer collection. The felt leaves are some that a friend gave me several years ago, and the vintge button is from my wonderful stash. I love this burlap trim that I keep using on my more masculine cards - it came from JoAnn's.

Please check out the full set of new releases available today from DZ Doodles. also head over to PCP to join the fun group of lovers of this fun digi company! We'd love to see you there where we can chat and have a great time just hanging out talking about papercrafting!
