It’s a brand new month (Aug.), but I still have one more challenge left over from July. It’s the Friday Mashup Challenge #69. It’s a Christmas in July challenge:) You know I love my Christmas cards;)
- Make a project “For Christmas.”
- Or Make a “Greeting Card & Decorate the Inside.”
- Or “Mash it Up” and create a “Christmas Card & Decorate the Inside.”
I decided to Mash it Up and create a “Christmas Card & Decorate the Inside.” Here is my card:
I did NOT color these images myself! They are pre-colored digital images from Fred She Said called Christmas Rosey DIGI & COL Set. The set includes both images. The background paper with the stripe is from FSS – Christmas Papers 1 – 2009. The dotted paper came from Christmas Poinsettia Packs: RED
The plain red paper I made myself by going to a photo program. I opened the striped paper and then a blank area. I copied the red color and put it in the new blank area, and by “magic” I had plain red paper to match my striped paper:) Actually, Tracey over at Fred She Said taught me how to do it:) I’ll ask if she would have time to post the instructions on her blog;)
Before you ask, I did not get all these images for free. Before I became a Design Team Member over at FSS, I bought most of my images, Tracey has very reasonable prices and you can order using PayPal! I did however get some free by winning the Blog Hop that FSS has, usually, once a month. Tracey also sponsors blog challenges around the web where she donates prizes.
If you follow the Fred She Said blog, you will be updated when blogs happen, or new images are put in the store. Also, every so often Tracey puts up freebies! 🙂 You can go over to her blog right now, and look up “digi-freebie” and pull up a list of images to use for free! Some of the links have expired, but there is still plenty to get started with:) Here’s on of my favorites: click here.
Thanks for coming by today! I welcome questions:) Have a great week!
