Like Promised!

So I promised that I would show you some of the things that I have been working on using Digital Stamps from Deedees' Digis Store. The ones I decided to use are so cute and I am more than pleased with how these projects turned out.

With school being over for another year, that means report cards, awards, and teacher gifts. I decided to make a great gift called ABC : Teacher Table Trio. Great organizer for any teacher. It can be modified to be use for a Secretary, or Pastor Appreciation gift too.

It was so much fun coloring this gorgous teddy bear. I used mostly Tim Holtz Distress Inks by Ranger to colour my teddy, along with water colour pencils. I love to use my white gel pen to add the highlight in various areas. Next is a close-up of the teddy bear to show the shading using these inks.

Now to show you the inside of this cute organizer. It can be used to hold paperclips, thumbtacks, and staples. Maybe it can house reward stickers and special candy treats. Whatever the item, I am sure it will be something treasured for many years.

One of the images that I picked to use was this one of a sweet teddy fishing and just relaxing. I know so many of us find it so difficult to relax and to just have a time to quiet our hearts. It is times like fishing that are good for the soul. I remember from my childhood days that fishing requires lots of patience and this is something that really makes you relax and enjoy the moment. You can't speed things along and you certainly can't make the fish jump on your hook! Lol! All of these things combined makes for a good day to relax and get away from all the worries of today and just have some much needed fun. You probabley can tell from the post from a couple of days ago that my Dad loves to fish. He is a real busy guy as well and needs to remember to "Live Life" a little fuller and not be so busy during his Retirement Years! Isn't that why they are called Retirement! Lol! Anyway I hope that this card will remind him to do just that. I had a load of fun using these stamps and I am sure that you will too. To view and purchase these Deedee's Digis make sure to click on store button on my sidebar.

And here is a close up shot to show the distress effect that I used to make the sky look like the sun was going down and this teddy was fishing later in the day.

Trust that you are all having a great week. With school out for most, I guess it is time to get ready for summer. Make sure to take lots of pics because remember you can't get yesterday back, but you can learn lots from it and relive it! Have a great weekend!

Thanks so much ladies for your kind remarks. I guess I didn't make it clear enough in my post that this is Teacher Organizer. I guess from just looking at it that it could look like a BookMark or Card. Lol! Hope your all having a great day!

These are absolutely incredible, Dana! So beautifully colored and crafted. I love how the distress inks look, especially the sky on your fishing bear card. WOW!!! You are going to have to teach me to do this kind of coloring some day. :-) Hugs, Deedee
