Winter’s Champion & NR Day @M5D!


I ♥ Thursdays… know why?  Almost the weekend yes, but it’s also NEW DIGI RELEASE DAY at McMahon Five Designs!! 

For my card I used the new hand-drawn image by Shawne of Studio 313 called Winter's Champion.  I ♥ horses, so I had fun coloring this one up to look just like our neighbor's horse "Grey"... hence the spots around the eyes.  You can see Sue's card with this gorgeous horse down below too!
It’s also the THIRD THURSDAY of the month, which means we offer a “FREE Awareness Digi” which was started this last October to remind women to check themselves each month.  So now we offer a new freebie on the 3rd Thursday if you promise to check yourself first!

The ribbons on these digis can be colored any color to match the awareness you want to emphasize.

We are emphasizing HEART DISEASE and ORGAN DONATION for February, as our own Christine Nay is a heart transplant recipient—you can read her story HERE and so it is very near and dear to our Hearts (literally!)  More about this below.


Ok, are you ready for some new  releases & some gorgeous eye candy???
