 Hello friends!  Today's card features my brand new digi set, "Rainy Day Friends" which you can now find in my digi shop here.  Those who played in my birthday challenge last week received this set in their email!  Thanks so much to all who are participating in these weekly challenges - so fun to see what you all come up with!

I was asked where I got the rainbow, to which I replied "I made it with my circle layering dies!" and so I thought I'd share a quick video tutorial showing how I made this adorable card.




Here's what comes in this set....

Thanks for popping by!

February's Imagine That DOTM Challenge

February is a special month because not only is it Happy Heart Day mid-month, it's also my Birthday and the 8th birthday of Imagine That Digistamp!!  I opened my digi shop online in February, 2013!  So I thought it would be fun to do some FUN weekly challenges & giveaways in addition to our DOTM challenge, and we hope you will join in the fun!  The extra challenges over the next 4 weeks are open - you can use any company's images/products, and every week that you play along, you will be emailed a free gift from Imagine That Digistamp!  🎁  Head on over HERE to start the first weekly challenge - after you've finished reading this post, ha!

and now for February's DOTM (digi of the month)...

Before we get to some inspiration, I want to give a very special mention to...

Deanne, who has been on my Design Team since [almost] the beginning.... August 23, 2013 to be exact!! Deanne, (or "Glitter Queen" as I like to call her) has been a blessing and is always up for extra chances to create. In addition to promoting ITD on her personal blog, she has had me as a sponsor over on her own challenge blogs. She is even displaying my cute Giraffes in her blog header - if you haven't seen them, go check them out! :) Many thanks to Deanne for her 7 1/2 years (and counting!!) of designing projects for ITD! 

Helen, who started out as a Guest Designer July 4, 2014 then joined the DT on September 1, 2014. Helen has also been a wonderful addition to our team and always comes through, despite being on so many other DT's, this girl seems to juggle them all with ease - or at least she makes it look easy! Check out Helen's blog here. Thank you Helen for 6 1/2 yrs on my team!!

Hilde, who started on my Facebook DT a lil' over 3 years ago - I believe mid-December, 2017 and then switched to our blog team when I closed our FB group last year. Hilde's creations are truly one-of-a-kind and so much heart and bling goes into each one. Hilde, like my other DT, is such a gem. Visit Hilde's Blog here.

This trio of designers is a dream to work with, and I look forward to what the future holds  ♥ MANY MANY THANKS!!!

And now some inspiration from these awesome designers using February's DOTM....
