Autumn Enchantment by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps

Hello friends!  Welcome to my DT post today.  The theme for The Paper Shelter's new challenge this week is AUTUMN COLOURS.  I love to see the trees dressed in their carnival colours, and their leaves dancing in the sky before they fall to the ground.  I also enjoy the cooler air and the wonderful earthy aroma.  So peaceful.  What a beautiful season!

For my card, I chose the gorgeous Autumn Enchantment by TPS Digital Stamps. I coloured her with Copics and Polychromos. 

For more wonderful inspiration, check out what the other design team members made here.  And, while there, why not join our challenge?  There are some fabulous prizes to be won.  

Thank you so much for visiting.  I truly appreciate it.  Have a happy day.  Hugs, Lori xx

The Lady by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps

Hello friends!  How quickly summer is passing by.  I cannot say that that saddens me because I do not particularly like summer.  Way too many bugs, hot temperatures and awful humidity.  

The Design Team members for The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog have been on their summer break.  Team A kicks off the new challenge which starts today.  The theme is CHARMING (Add a Charm).  I chose The Lady by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps.  What a classy lady she is!

I drew the simple background, and used Copics and Polychromos to colour this fabulous image.  If you would like to see some more inspiration by the other Design Team members, please check here.  And, while you are there, why not join in the fun?  There are some beautiful prizes to be won.

Thank you for visiting.  I sincerely appreciate it.  In the interim, I wish you a happy day.  Hugs, Lori xx

Jerina and Kitty by Digi Doodle Studios

 Hello, dear friends!  I am sharing my second DT card today which I created for the new challenge on the Digi Doodle Challenge Blog. And, while you are there, you can check out the other creations by the rest of the Design Team.

There are six new darling images on Digi Doodle Digi Stamps.  I used one of them called Jerina and Kitty.  Looks like this cute pair is practicing some relaxation techniques.

The theme this month is By the Sea / At the Sea / Under the Sea

I have always found that being near a lake, a sea or an ocean is so tranquil and so I decided to draw the pier and the background.  I coloured this adorable image with Copics and Polychromos.

Digi Doodle Studios also has a Facebook challenge.  Why not pop in and join in the fun on one, or both challenges?

Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you soon.  Have a happy day.  Hugs, Lori xx

Purrfect Kitties with Lights by Conie Fong

 Hi friends!  I usually start making the bulk of my Christmas cards this month.  I have already made a couple of cards.  This is my latest inspirational DT card showcasing the truly darling Purrfect Kitties image by Conie Fong.  Conie has quite a number of truly adorable Christmas images.  I made this card for Conie's Facebook group.

My card is pretty simple.  All I did was colour the image, add the free sentiment by Kiss Clipart and... voila!  Another Christmas card!

Thank you for visiting.  I always enjoy reading your lovely comments.  Have a wonderful weekend.  Hugs, Lori xx

I would like to enter this card on the Inspiration Station Challenge Blog (theme:  Animal Kingdom).  Below is the photo that was given as inspiration.  I love all kinds of animals, especially any type of feline, wild and domestic.  I immediately focused on the gorgeous white tiger because kitties have a special place in my heart.  And, what better way to  represent that than to use Conie's gorgeous Purrfect Kitties image?

Nixie Mermaid by Digi Doodle Studios Digi Stamps

 Hello friends!  Hope you are doing well.  Hard to believe it is August already, right?  A new challenge begins today on the Digi Doodle Studios Challenge Blog.

There is a wonderful theme this month:  By the Sea/At the Sea/Under the Sea.

I chose the gorgeous Nixie Mermaid image by Digi Doodle Studios Digital Stamps as my DT inspiration.

She is coloured with Copic markers and Polychromos pencils.   I love the fabulous background paper by Whimsy Stamps.  I think it compliments the image beautifully.  The cute little koi is by Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea paper pad.  I fussy cut the koi, and I added some 3-D foam under it to give it a curved look. 

I stamped some seagrasses and I drew the rock that Nixie is sitting on. 

There is also a Digi Doodle Studios Facebook challenge.  If you join in the fun on one challenge, or both, you may win some truly lovely images by DDS.

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