It’s Sandy here with a treat – and a big idea!
This weekend, one of the prizes at our Facebook party was a digi of the state flower for the winner’s home state…Kathryn B was the winner, so Maryland is our flower digi! The Black-Eyed Susan is a bright yellow flower with a black center….so pretty and cheery!
While I was at it, I also did the state bird, the Baltimore Oriole…it’s got an orange underbelly, and the orange goes a little golden by the time it gets to the tail. The feathers on top are black and white:
While I was working on these, the creative juices started flowing and I made a sort of ‘seed pack’ design with the flowers:
I made some sample cards; if you want to know more about how they were made, I’m posting them on my blog
And then I had more ideas starting to cook! What if…..what if OWH had a set of digis for every state? These would be awesome for AnyHero cards for those from that state, and could also work as regular cards as well. And heck, who doesn’t love to color flowers! (Okay I know some people don’t!)
The next problem is….how to decide which states are next? How about this: the next three will be the three states with the most AnyHero mail through the whole month of March…another 10 days left! We can do that monthly, or for whenever I’ve got time to make the digis….we can also have them as prizes for challenges…..heck, maybe we’ll even pick a random commenter on our blogs! So for now, be sure to include some AnyHero mail if you’re still sending in cards during March….push your state to the top of the list!
Once we get a couple states done, I’ll start a page on our website to collect all the digis together; then if anyone googles for images like these, they’ll end up at OWH….and we can gain some new cardmakers that way! *grin*
What do you think? What other ideas do you have for how we can pick which states are next?
