I am so HAPPY that I am sorry you cannot see me hopping up and down while making this post!!  Today is the day I have been waiting for since the first of the year!!  Okay, it has only been a couple of weeks, but keeping a secret that long is hard!

I am here to tell you about Can You Digi It?  This is a brand new store that pride's itself on being crafter-friendly!!  What more could a card maker ask for!  The store has a bit of everything and is growing by the day!  I must say that you will see me stepping a bit out of my box by using some digital papers and added bling...but, the prices are great and I can't wait to see where my creativity goes!!

To jump start your creativity and to show you some of the fun you can have with the IT girls, let's hop!!!!  The complete list of hoppees is below my creation!  

I have used one of the Retro Garden Fairies for my card! My husband has affectionately named her Judy!  She is surrounded by some of  her floral handiwork!  I sure hope come Spring she will be at my house to help with my flowers (thank goodness my husband enjoys working outside, because my brown thumb is no help)!
