Cecilia by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps

Hello friends!  The theme this week on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog is

BOWS and/or PINK

I wanted to incorporate both a bow and pink colours on my DT card.  Since I love all shades of pink, it was a no brainer for me.  I chose the beautiful Cecilia image by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps.  




I coloured this lovely lady with my trusty Copic markers, and I drew a simple background for her.

For more inspiration from the other Design Team members, please visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog.  You won't be disappointed.  And, while you are there, why not join in the fun?  There are always some amazing prizes to be won.


Thank you for visiting.  I wish you a happy day.  Hugs, Lori xx

Bella and Benji Kiss by Conie Fong

Hello dear friends!  I am so excited because Conie Fong has released three absolutely darling images in her etsy shop.  My DT card showcases one of them called Bella and Benji Kiss.  It includes three fabulous sentiments and is available in JPG and PNG format.


Is it not the sweetest?  I used Copic markers to colour the image and drew a little scene for these cuties. I got created and used the negative part of the slimline die.  Waste not, want not!  LOL  

Conie has a Facebook group with an adorable freebie, and she also hosts a monthly challenge for colouring and projects.  Why not join in the fun?  You may win some beautiful images.

That's all from me today.  Thank you for visiting.  Have a wonderful day.  Hugs, Lori xx

Spring Trends by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps

Hi friends, and welcome to my first DT post of this year for The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog (#573).  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.

This week's theme is NEW BEGINNINGS.  My card features the delightful Spring Trends image by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps.  This little lady has started her new year by purchasing some new clothes and shoes.  Perhaps I should follow suit!  LOL 

I coloured the image and the background (which I drew) with Copic markers and Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils.

Molly Cutie by Conie Fong

Hello friends!  I hope you've done all your Christmas shopping, or close to it.  I'm all set and even mailed my Christmas and Hanukkah cards this past Tuesday.  I feel so accomplished!  LOL  

My DT inspirational slimline card showcases the darling Molly Cutie image by Conie Fong.  This image comes with a second image which has some minor differences, and it just as sweet.


As always, I used Copics and Polychromos to colour the image, and  I drew a simple background for this cutie. The sentiment is computer generated.

That's all from me today.  Thank you for visiting.  Have a lovely weekend.  Hugs, Lori xx

Sweet Things by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps

Good morning, lovely crafters, and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop, in celebration of The Paper Shelter's 12th birthday on December 8.


This will be a two week challenge, with both teams taking part. It is our way of thanking The Paper Shelter for sharing their wonderful images with us, and sponsoring our challenges. The theme for this special challenge is BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS.


I coloured this adorable image with my usual mediums (Copics and Polychromos).  The little cupcakes are from Heartfelt Creations' Sugarspun Collection paper pad.  I will admit that I love cupcakes, especially with chocolate frosting!  LOL 

If you've arrived here from Julie's blog, then you are heading in the right direction.  If not, you'll want to pop back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to start again, because you don't want to miss out on this one.  

Both Design Teams are participating, showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter, and each blog on the hop is offering one lucky commenter a digi of their choice, as well as the main prize (details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog).

From here you need to hop over to Sammy Jean's blog.  Don't forget to leave your comment for an opportunity to win your choice of one the the fabulous digis available in TPS store.

Good luck!  I hope you've enjoyed the hop so far.  Thank you very much for visiting.  Have a lovely day.  Hugs, Lori xx
