Hybrid Happiness

Dear Reader,

In the past few months I have been investing in a lot of digital kits and products.  There is so much out there to buy that it can be overwhelming in every way (overwhelming for the budget for sure).  I have used these products on my halloween party invitations and increasingly in cards and ATCs.  I simply love the endless possibilities and customization that using digital designs lend physical projects.  In fact I am taking a new hybrid class with Jessica Sprague and Heidi Swapp (of House of 3) called Mouse, Paper, Scissors which should prove to be awesome and will undoubtedly improve my skills (we all can see that this is needed!).

During my blogging hiatus I made a few simple birthday hybrid cards that I thought I would share with you.

Card No. 1


Digital supplies used: all digital supplies from the Every Day's an Adventure collaboration kit between Leora Sanford and Aja Abney.  If you like it you should buy it now as it may be retired as of March 15th (and it is 50% off right now at Little Dreamer Designs).
