A few firsts.....

Greetings!! I'm so excited because I made a card using a digi FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME! I can hear you all gasping, I know -what have I been waiting for? Well when I saw this cutie created by my very talented friend Crissy Armstrong I had to have it. And since it only comes in digi form.....I was forced to take the plunge!

This is Back to School Bart, available at Whimsy Stamps. Believe it or not, it's also my first Whimsy image! And -- I used my Basic Grey Jovial pad FOR THE FIRST TIME -- love these papers -- I got them from my friend Tammi last year but the pad got buried -- luckily I was looking for something else & came across it, the papers were perfect for this card. I know it's not a Xmas card, but you know me & the red/green combo -- it's my favorite! Gosh looking at the red flower now -- it looks like a poinsettia, lol. THIS IS NOT A CHRISTMAS CARD!!

I have listed this card on Ebay HERE

I only took one photo -- I was having a fit trying to get it to focus. And forget about a close up -- I had my macro on but for some reason every picture I took was fuzzy. This will have to do :)

We are headed to the State Fair tomorrow -- I took the day off & we will be going first thing in the morning & staying till late at night. We missed it last year for the first time so we have some catching up to do! I will be spending the day eating fried foods & stuff on a stick!

******* I almost forgot to mention that Jocelyn solved the mystery below. A few people said it was some kind of hummingbird moth (Ann-Marie & Squirrel both said Hummingbird Hawk Moth), but I think Jocelyn hit it on the head when she said it's a Hummingbird Clearwing Moth. Click on the link, very interesting creature!! I'd never heard of it before! Thanks ladies!!!
