…BLD Blog Hop

Howdy, peeps!  I guess you’re probably wondering where in the world I’ve been, huh?  Honestly, I’ve been taking a little break since my desire to create and/or color went on hiatus a couple of weeks ago.  I’ve been cleaning house and discovered a new love…COUPONING!  So I’ve been running around town finding sales and saving buckets of money! :)

BLD-Banner-BlogHop

As you already know, today we’re having a new release blog hop using the new images from By LORi Designs!  If you’ve come from KADIE’S BLOG then you’re in the right place; if not, then you’ll need to start over at the By Lori Designs’ Blog to catch up and follow along.  Here’s my card for today’s hop…introducing:

Puddle Jumpers’ Easter Lyla

card_1577

I printed the image out and colored it all with Copic Sketch Markers adding the ground in the process.  I paired the completed image with some patterned papers from SU’s retired Tea Party Designer Series Paper pack along with some Lemon Tart and White Cardstock.  I stitched the purple dotted panel to the larger floral background, then added some piercing around the floral panel edges with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer.  The sentiment panel was punched out using Classic Circle Nesties then colored with a Copic Marker.  After adding some Ribbon, Rhinestones, and tons of Dimensionals the card was complete!

That’s it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by to see me, and hop on over to HANNAH’S BLOG to see what she has for you…I’m sure you’ll LOVE it!  I’ll see you all back here either Sunday or Monday with another creation.  I’m spending the weekend up in the mountains with my besties Pam, Jessica, and Jessie…so I’m hoping to get a lot of stamping done while I’m there.  Until then…
