Meet...Donna!



 Check out the newest digis in the Tiddly Inks store and you'll see a digi named "Donna". Christy Croll named it so, since I once asked her for an image with an umbrella. Isn't she cute? She reminds me of our daughters when they were younger.

I have a thing for umbrellas, because the "kasa" in my last name means umbrella in Japanese. The number 3 is "mi", so the literal translation of Mikasa is "three umbrellas". Now you know why I chose that name for my blog and my affinity for umbrellas!

Did you notice the handle of the umbrella? It's a little frog! I colored the umbrella and added some spots to mimic a frog's body, and although you can't see it, I dotted the "rain" with my Aqua Lip pen for raindrops.

You can find "Donna" in the Tiddly Inks store and the digi is now on sale, so go grab her and some of the other cute digis, too! Thanks, Christy--I love her!

Hope you're all having a great weekend! Happy Labor Day to my US friends...
