Digital Card Making with PSP

I love making my own greetings cards and thought that the card challenges would be a lot of fun. I have a lot of paper and pens...and the other things one would need to make great cards. I found myself trying to keep up with what is new on the market... then I realize all the stuff, the papers, glue, and stamps were getting very costly and I was running out of space to store it all.

That is when I decided to make elements for my cards in Paint Shop Pro aka PSP. PSP is a software that I have been teaching myself since version 3. Now using version 13 I have learned that the program can also create images and paint them as well. Light bulb went off...why not use it to make my cards and not just some elements for the cards. And so digital card making began for me...and boy has it saved me money.

This blog now consist of my creations that I have made using nothing but PSP. I found the challenge for me is to teach myself how to meet the different card challenges within PSP.

Well that is how all this digital stuff began...Just thought I share.

365 Card Challenge - Super Sketchy Sunday

Here is the sketch for today. I down load a new freebie the other day that has a very pretty color combo in it. I decided to use the kit for today's challenge. The kit is called IMendez PearPerfect and I d\l it from Gottapixel. You will find a link on my blog in the right column. I actual ended becoming a member of Gottapixel because I found so many cool papers and kits that were not among the freebies that I just had to have. Best part about the site is that the prices are very reasonable! Any way I have met the challenge and my card is done!
