Hi Jan Here..I was double thrilled and delighted this week as not only did the lovely 
give me one of her beautiful digi stamps to play with detailed here

Air Mail Digital Stamp for Papercrafting - EtsyKids - CaaT

But I also was lucky enough and SUPER THRILLED to win one of the lovely
  PINK CAT STUDIO digis too.
I set to work and only hope my humble creations does both these lovely digi stamps justice.
I used elements of the lovely PATTI MOORE DIGI 
to highlight the thank you on the inside of my easel card as i thought the mail box and birdie was so cute.
We dont have mail boxes like this in the UK and i just think they are fabulous and  so quaint..lol
Check out PATTI MOORE'S ETSY store for more lovely creations.
For the main image of my card i chose this very beautiful stunning image
http://www.pinkcatstudio.com/Digital/DigiStamps/DotsAndDelights/TweetOnBranch.htm
Both of my images printed out so beautifully and were super easy to do so if you have never used digi stamps before please give them a whirl.
I coloured my TWEET ON A BRANCH image with my prismacolour markers and added depth with coloured pencils (faber castell)
and of course added some bling.
thank you for looking Jan.
