OWL BE YOUR FRIEND

Have I mentioned yet that I absolutely LOVE My Digital Studio?? Quick. Easy. Non-messy.

I decided yesterday that I needed to make some Valentines. You know, CUTE Valentines?
Looking through my MDS stash, I didn't find anything quite cutesy enough. So I checked
out the most recent of the My Digital Studio downloads. Lo and behold, even though I had
seen them previously when they were originally released, I discovered My Cute Valentine
and Officially Awesome Valentines-- both just right for what I was thinking.

The cool thing about ordering MDS Downloads is that you get them IMMEDIATELY and you
don't pay any shipping! And, they are inexpensive. These two were $2.95 and $3.95. Cheap instant gratification.

I ordered and downloaded them right away, and within minutes I was playing! I fell in love
with the darling owl in My Cute Valentine, and decided I would work with a card starring him
first. This was such an easy and fun Valentine to create!


Isn't he just the cutest ever?? The whole white portion is what I did in MDS. After printing 
it off, I proceeded to my workshop and finished my hybrid greeting. I finished off his eyes 
with black brads, added a bow made from some of the Tangerine Tango ribbon you can get 
for FREE through Sale-A-Bration, and rounded the corners. I adhered it to some red card 
stock, then to a Whisper White card front. 

And, the best part is that I have this card front all saved in My Digital Studio, and can go 
back and print out as many as I want, without any further ado. Crazy, huh?

Smiles.
