Eden Light Fairy by Digi Doodle Studios

Hi friends!  Digi Doodle Studios' current challenge is going on right now, and there's still time to join in the fun. The theme is FANTASY/LIGHT and SPRITE/BELIEVE in MAGIC.  For my GD card, I used the gorgeous Eden Light Fairy by Digi Doodle Studios Digital Stamps.  There is also a DDS Facebook challenge

I coloured this beautiful image with Copics and Polychromos.  I used a cloud die and placed it on the top and bottom of the image for some added emphasis. The sun is a free clipart image which I fussy cut and added it to the rainbow.

Don't forget to stop by the DDS Challenge Blog and check out the lovely creations by the Design Team members.

As always, thank you for making time to visit.  Enjoy your weekend.  Hugs, Lori

Bella with Rose by Conie Fong

Hi peeps!  I have always loved teddy bears.  My boys each had a favourite teddy bear (rather large) when they were little, and I still have them!  Conie Fong has some adorable teddy bear images.  That said, I chose one of them for my card.  This sweetie is Bella with Rose by Conie Fong. 

I  coloured her with Copic markers and Polychromos pencils.  I drew the simple background.  

Conie has a monthly Facebook challenge.  If you join in the fun, you may win some darling images.

Birthday Layout

 Hi friends!  My sons celebrated their birthday last month and I came across this photo of them a few weeks ago when they were young.  I remember that day as if it was yesterday.  How time flies!

I rarely make scrapbook layouts now but I couldn't resist making this one.  Such fun! The fireworks and the tiny candles border are from some old SVG files.  I applied Swarovski crystals in the centers.  The title is computer generated and is mounted over some different coloured mulberry papers.  

I would like to enter this layout in the National Scrapbook Day 2022 Giveaway on the Simon Says Stamp Blog.   Have a happy day.  Until next time, Lori xx
