Hello!  It’s Friday!  And because it’s the third Friday of the month, it’s New Digi Release Day at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps!   Lots of great new digital stamp sets are being introduced today – four adorable bunny rabbit images, a set of sentiments, and a set of springtime images such as butterflies, bees and a flower.  The rest of the Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi Challenge design team and I are showcasing different ones today, so please check out everyone’s blogs so you can see all the fun new stuff!  Be sure to leave a comment on each of the design team members’ blogs, too – one of us is a mystery blogger, and one person who comments on her blog post will be chosen at random to receive the entire new release!  Links are over in the left sidebar, but if you lose track while visiting around, you can always go back to the Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi Challenge blog and start anew.  And yes – there are lots of new links over there because we have five new design team members!  Please join me in giving a warm welcome to Lawren Folkes, Jamie Moore, Debbie Owens, Melissa Shultz, and Ann Tuck!

Our Digi Challenge this week is 3-2-1.  For your project that uses a digital image as its focal point, you’ll need to use 3 of one item, 2 of a different item, and 1 of something else.  When you write up your blog post or upload description, please include details to let us know what your 3-2-1 items are.  Be sure to link your project to the Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi Challenge blog by midnight Thursday, February 21.  You aren’t required to use a Sweet ‘n Sassy digital image, but we do enjoy seeing our participants use them (and you get the chance for extra perks if you do – see the Digi Challenge site for more details!).

I’ve used the new image Bunny 1 and two of the images from Spring Add-ons – so the “3” part of my card is three different digital images.  My “2” things are two dies – the circle and the fence.  And I’ve used one pearl to embellish the center of the layered Prima flowers.  I played around with resizing and rotating the images so I could have the butterfly lighting on the bunny’s nose, and so that the flowers would be facing in different directions.  Because the deadline for submitting Easter cards to Operation Write Home has passed, I opted to create a non-seasonal sentiment in Microsoft Word and printed that out to use.  I was trying to go for the look of the bunny and the flowers against a backdrop of the rising sun.  I’m not sure I’ve accomplished that successfully, but I’m OK with how the card turned out.  Once again, I’ve used Freshly Made Sketches #73 for the layout, but this time I’ve turned it into a tall rectangle.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Comments are always welcome.  To show my appreciation to my visitors, I’m offering some Spring-y blog candy to one person who leaves a comment on this blog post by 9:00 pm eastern time on Thursday, February 21!  Want to see?

There’s a set of Fancy Corners embossing folders, two packages of Pop Dots, a package of Basic Grey stitched brads, a package of Basic Grey glazed brads, and a package of white daisy embellishments from Close to My Heart.  The Basic Grey products coordinate with their Kioshi papers.  If this blog post receives more than 25 comments, I’ll add in a few other goodies.  I’ll be monitoring comments for spam, so only legitimate comments will be counted for the random drawing.  The winner will be announced in my Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi Challenge post on Friday, February 22, 2013.  Be sure to leave your email address in the email input field so I’ll have a way to contact you if you’re the winner! 🙂
