Lollipop Love - Sophie and Dylan

Lori, owner of By Lori Designs, is celebrating Lollipop Day with a digi giveaway.  How appropriate, since one of her stamp lines is none other than "Lollipops".  In addition to the Lollipops, she has Puddle Jumpers, Sugar Sticks, Elephants, Special Editions (which are images already combined for you), Spoonfuls (which I believe her mom created) and Bug & Roo which were created by her daughter Hannah (what a talented family).  I just love these images ~ they are so fun to color, they always bring a smile to my face and they make the cutest cards.  
Here is a card I created using Lollipop Sophie and Lollipop Dylan.  Don't they make a cute couple?

I merged the two images in photoshop and colored them with copics.  The designer papers are from Basic Grey.  I machine stitched each layer, added some punched hearts, ribbon and pearls. 
Thanks for stopping and have a great day!

O Scrap meets Cupcake Anya

I came across the O Scrap blog the other day and saw that they were giving away a free digi kit and had a contest to make something using the kit so I decided to make a card and a few 3x3 note cards.  

Along with the digi kit I used the digi image of Cupcake Anya from the Greeting Farm.   I used the floral paper for Anya's dress and bows while the rest of Anya was colored with copics.  I cut out some of the flowers from the kit and added buttons to the centers.  The little circle embellishments were punched from the floral paper as well.  The sentiment is from the Happy Chef set by the Greeting Farm.  I also followed the Which One Wednesday Challenge at The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Challenge Blog which happened to be a sketch challenge this week.

These four note cards use different items from the digi kit.  On the two flower cards I added buttons to the center of the flowers.  The Happy Bird-day sign that the bird is "holding" I made myself.

Thanks for stopping and have a fantastic day!
