Hybrid MDS Card


I know I'm a little late in showing you this but I figure you can use it for next year as an idea! I have always wanted to make a Hybrid card using My Digital Studio. I thought about it for awhile but was nervous. After see so many wonderful examples, I knew that I had to give it a try!! OMG..not to sure what I was afraid of, but it's so easy!!

I used the new Lucky Frameable download to create my collage of words. I printed it at home, and matted it onto Lucky Limeade card stock and then onto Lucky Limeade Pattern Paper. I added a cute button and some Lucky Limeade Baker Twine and have a hybrid card!!

Happy Tuesday!!

Yah, it`s digital download day!! I wonder what fun and new downloads there will be this week...maybe something for Easter!!

Remember me telling you that I went back and redid some of the pages in our Alaska Album. I wasn't crazy about the colour scheme that I started off with but finally found the ones that I like. I feel that when you do an album, the pages should flow together especially if it`s a trip.
