Digital Two For Tuesday

Good afternoon friends!  I don't usually post twice in one day, but I wanted to share with you a call for guest designers over at "Digital Two for Tuesday".  You can read more about it HERE.  

**** Update ****
Cora says she has filled all the guest designer positions for 2012

The blog is ran by Cora Hawkins and she is very talented at taking old images from vintage magazines and books and turning them into digital stamps that the rest of us can design with.  And all the images are FREE!  I can only imagine how much time Cora spends sharing these images on here "Digital Two for Tuesday" challenge blog and on her personal blog "Clearly Vintage" for the rest of us to use.  The only thing she ask is that you not share the actual image anywhere else and that if you post it somewhere, link to her blog.   If you get a minute, hop on over and check out the blog.

Aren't these some of the sweetest images ????  Doesn't it make you want to stop what your doing  and sit down and color???   Well ..... I guess that depends on what your doing, teehee.  I'm cooking dinner and doing some ironing.

Today I am sharing cards I created in the past using some of Cora's images.

 I don't have time to look up all the individual links for each specific image, however you can check out the previous post for these and should find the links there.  HERE.

The post for this floral card comes with a step by step tutorial on how to print the image directly on the front of a card, no cutting or adhering.  You just print, fold, color, punch the border if you like and add a bow!
Clean and Simple!

Had to get up at 4am for CPR class this morning and back to work tomorrow and friday.  So I better get off here and finish up my day.  My Tempur-Pedic mattress is calling my name!  I LOVE my mattress!

I hope you all have a wonderful night!
Hugs,  Melisa

What a delightful collection of cards! I particularly like the sweet little ones -- even wanted to get up and dance with that sweet little girl among the flowers!
