AnnaBelle's Brand new digi's and a new format!!

Happy Tuesday to all, today is a verrrrry exciting day at AnnaBelle Stamps, we have a new blog hop format to share with you and some brand spankin' new devine digi's to showcase!!

Come and join us the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month as we have fun sharing a new set or two with you!

Play along with us for your chance to win the Blog Hop set, this week that is all 3 digi's!
If you have been following along at the AnnaBelle's Blog you will have seen some sneak peaks of the new goodies that are coming your way, stamps, papers.... and more!

I know you will fall in love with these new digi's, as I have, they are just gorgeous and tell such a beautiful story, they make me think of my Grandad heading off to war and what it would have been like for him to say hello or goodbye to his 'girl'.
You know what I love about digi's- can can have them whatever darn size you want!!!  In the 1st one below however I made it a little challenging to colour, all those little bits to colour- thank goodness for the colourless blender-lol!!
I wanted to keep the layouts and colours fairly simple so as not to detract from the beautiful image.
I have used 5 Chilli Heart sprinkles and a 3mm turquoise sprinkle together to make the flower, layered this on top of a button.

Sue, these are so good. I love the clean lines of the first, and that flower is just so clever! The black/white of the second just matches the idea of time nicely - well done.
