CDD February Digi Stamp Monthly Challenge - Birthday

          Hello all! I'm here today to share a card I made for the Craftin Desert Divas February Digi Stamp Monthly Challenge, which this month the theme is Birthday. The card I made for the Challenge is using the adorable Little Lovelies Mouse Cake Peeker along with the Birthday Sentiments Digital Stamps. It's so cute that I am hoping you won't even notice my boo-boo, lol! However, even if you don't I just want to point out that there are ways to correct your mistakes, so don't just throw away your project when something goes wrong because the majority of the time it can be fixed :) In my case here with this card I went to go color those precious little eyes, when my cat decided to bump my arm, and with that I had by no choice of my own colored the wrong part of the eye :( To fix it I just colored both eyes as though I meant to do that and ta-da project saved :) There often are many other ways to hide those mistakes like using other images, cutouts, enamel dots, or whiting it out with a white pen. Jennifer McGuire has a technique where you can use a razor knife and eraser but that's a method to be very careful with, lol!
          I would like to invite you to play along with us in the challenge for a chance to win a $10 code to use in the CDD Shop, so when you have finished at my blog click here to be taken to the CDD Facebook Gallery where you can find out the further details and upload your entry. You can also find the weekly free digital stamp over at the CDD Shop in which you can use for the challenge as long as it fits the theme. Isn't that awesome! Thanks so much for joining me again today! I wish you a fantastic week!
