Clip Art and Digital

Gotta share a couple cards today.  This one is using the Unscripted sketch for this week.  I turned the sketch.

 I purchased a set of clip art cards from Made by Janet's etsy store. LOVE the vintage feel of them. I printed them on a piece of textured cardstock that even adds to the vintage look. I did ink the edges with a brown Distress stamp pad to further the vintage look.
 I am madly in love with this wonderful doily die from My Favorite Things and I thought it fit here pretty nice. I used some amazing Tim Holtz Kraft cardstock, I just love the shades of colors in this collection.
 This is my Card Positioning Systems card for this week. I think it has to be the fastest card I have ever created!
 I inserted a piece of digital patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket in a Microsoft Word document and resized it.  Then I placed this cute little snowglobe digital element over the paper and printed them out at once. I printed them on the X-Press Copic paper, this stuff smooth like butter and the inks print wonderful on it.
The little banner is by Spellbinders and I stamped the Paper Smooches sentiment on that.
Now for a couple photos...
 The bottom dog, Sadie, likes to cuddle under blankets and pillows so she burrowed under this pillow and the little dog, K.C., came along and got comfortable on top of this sandwich! Funny dogs!
This is a photo of the sunrise I caught the other day. I was out taking photos of something else and I realized that the sun rays made this pattern when I caught it just right.
