Lizabeth - Key to my Heart Lacy Easel. (and some exciting news!)

Hi Folks!

Hope you're ok?

Well, today's card is all my own work but with a slight cheat - I've used a pre coloured digi...but I did colour the digi in the first instance!  Lol.  Now, usually this isn't allowed but I have special permission by Heather Valentin (whose digi it is) to do so because very soon (when Heather lists them) there will be some of my pre coloured digis appearing on the Lacy Sunshine store for sale - including this one!  Woohoo!  And I'll be doing more as we go along.

Also, if you click on the Lacy Sunshine link you'll see that Heather is in the process of setting up a fabulous, brand new shop which is so much better than the original one which was just a stop gap.  The framework's there but Heather is busy adding to it and expanding it.  At present, some of the pictures are a little blurry but she'll gradually be changing them (now she knows why that's happened) so that they'll all be as clear as the new digis she added yesterday (absolute stunners!!!!) and they will enlarge when you click on them.  The site's sleeker, faster and much more user friendly.  And, as well as the beautiful new digis, Heather has added a load more to the retiring section where they're being offered at just $1 each...which is a crazy price!  Also, we're (and I'm saying 'we' because I'm helping Heather out now) starting to offer pngs alongside the jpgs.  And I'm sure most people will know how fabulously useful png versions are!!!  If not, give me a shout in the comments and I'll explain all in the coming days!  And have I mentioned the Gallery on there?  Go check it out!

There are very exciting things coming up at Lacy Sunshine, so keep a close eye on things in the coming days and weeks...and months!  As well as the shop site, there is also a Blog and a Facebook Group where we'd love to see your projects...using Heather's digis or not!  It's a fun group and we have a laugh, so if you feel like having me taking the mickey out of you and Heather teasing you with sneak peeks of upcoming digis, then come and join us.  There are a great bunch of girls on there and we have a lot of fun...and every now and then Heather offers freebies!!!  Yay!  So if you want to keep up with the goss on all the exciting things going on at Lacy Sunshine, then join the group and blog and be the first to know the news!  Like there's something we're really excited about happening on Sunday...watch this space!

Right...as mentioned, today's card has been made using one of the pre coloured digis which I have created for Lacy Sunshine and it will be on sale in the store soon.


I'm sure that regular followers (and I love you all!) will recognise this version of Lizabeth from the card I made a couple of weeks ago...one of my favourite ever cards, actually.  

It's the Lizabeth - Key to my Heart digi which is available as line art at the Lacy Sunshine store right now...and this pre coloured version will be available very soon.  I'm sure you'll agree that Lizabeth is just so beautiful...and Heather has added a new Lizabeth digi to the store just last night!  


I've printed my png digi onto Super Smooth card and cut it using Spellbinders oval dies.  I didn't have the proper colour card for matting so I die cut some white ovals and coloured them with a promarker to match Lizabeth's dreass  (Antique Pink).

I created the easel base using my Spellbinders Floral Ovals (the largest size) and Super Smooth card. Then it was just a case of layering up and adding a sentiment (created on my lappy) and some lovely glittered flowers from Papermania.

So...how's that for a very quick card?

Take care everyone.
Happy crafting!
