Are you a Saturated Canary fan???

I'm sure you must have seen one or two wonderful cards made with the fabulous Saturated Canary digis out there in web world - one or two hundred maybe!!!  It's no surprise to me how very popular these cute as can be images are - Krista Smith has such an amazing talent for art.  I first came across her on Etsy where she was selling art prints of her "girls" and then began to follow her blog.  I was thrilled when she started the digi images and happily began my collection :)

            A while back, Krista asked her blog followers for some ideas for new characters and she would send the lucky chosen ones, a digi of 'their' idea.  Well, I'm sure you can guess where this is leading.......

YES, I'M ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES!!!!!
(insert happy dance here)

Krista liked my idea which was a Viking girl and so here she is on a card I just made -


Isn't she just the cutest Viking ever???  I've been very interested in the Vikings or Norsemen ever since I managed to trace my family tree back to some Viking big-wigs!!  Yes, that's another one of my hobbies - genealogy.  I spent over a year researching my ancestry and it was so fascinating - like being an historical private detective.

     Anyway, enough waffling - the good news is that Krista has very generously said we, (the lucky ones!) can offer "our" digi as a prize - Yay!!  To be in with a chance of winning just leave a comment on my blog - it would be great if you became a follower too :)  Then head over to Krista's blog here where you will find a list of all the other lucky folk and you can visit their blogs for a chance of winning "their" images.

PLEASE NOTE THE LUCKY WINNER HAS BEEN PICKED NOW :)

How's that for a great start to your day?  I'll leave you with a close up of Vicky the Viking - I coloured her with a mixture of Copics and Distress Inks (first time I've painted with the inks).

I'd like to enter her for the following -

http://paperprettiesblog.blogspot.com/ - new technique (1st time colouring with Distress Inks)
http://www.thekraftjournal.blogspot.com/ - anything goes kraft

Thanks for staying with me on a fairly lengthy posting for me - hope you enjoy all the other new SC images :)

YAY! Congrats on having your idea brought to SC life Dawn! :-) What a fun idea for a character. Your coloring looks fantastic. So how did you like the distress inks? I love the softness of color you can get with them. I love your card. The stitching is such a great touch and the sentiment is absolutely perfect!
LOL I'm a genealogy buff too! No vikings in my family tree, but lots of French and my hubby's line comes from just about every monarch that ever ruled ANYWHERE in Europe. LOL It's such a cool hobby and look at history.
Hugs and congrats again Dawn! :-)

Wow really fascinated with your coloring. How cool to be able to trace your family tree to Vikings! For some reason it made me think of Eric from TrueBlood (lol) he was a viking before being turned into a vampire. Thanks for sharing.
