From Nuns to Martinis

I certainly expect this title got your attention!  This is a bit of an eclectic post, with a few cards I made recently as a request.  They all have some digital elements to them as well;  digital is quickly becoming my go-to solution!  I saw this image recently on Mo's Digital Pencil and hoped someday I could come up with a reason to use it!  Probably my catholic school upbringing!

I "borrowed" Vicky's copics again and tried my best to color these black habits.  I don't think I did half bad!! Can't wait until I have my own Copics to play with!  For the sentiment, I searched online for dancing quotes, and found this one by Dave Barry that I put on the outside and inside of the card.

Nobody cares if you can't dance well.
Just get up and dance.

The next card is a very very simple card to make.  If you have not discovered Bethany's Wordart, you must check it out!  Every day she offers a free wordart (and they are wonderful!) plus she has a store at Scraporchard that sells her Wordart packages.  I thought this art was perfect for a thank you card.  I printed it in Powerpower and simply layered it on some DSP.  You can also recolor the images if you have software like Photoshop and that gives you a ton more options!

and how does the martini fit in??  Another thank you card I did on request, for this one a martini seemed appropriate.  The background is a digital image from the Digi Shack, and the Martini is a rubber stamp (so I guess this makes this a hybird card!)  I added Crystal Effects to the glass, and hung a martini charm from the ribbon.

I love Sundays! I try to spend Sundays crafting, usually doing my Design Team assignments. Hopefully I have time to fit in a few more cards too!  Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions about anything don't hesitate to ask!!
