Today I have a very special surprise for you! A DOUBLE BLOG HOP!!! That’s right, Baby Bud Designs and By LORi Designs have teamed up to bring you a big ol' blog hop! We’ve got a fantastic line up of extremely talented designers, showcasing some pretty adorable images.
You’ll find a ton of inspiration, and of course a hop isn’t a hop without some prizes right? So be sure to leave comments on every stop!
Sit back, relax and enjoy the wonderful creations that both of these wonderful Design Teams have created for you! You won’t be disappointed! If you get lost along the way the whole list will be posted at each of the Main blogs.
For my part in today's activities, I got to play with yet another new image from ByLori Designs called 'Happy Birthday Annie'. Here she is, all ready for the party..............
Now, I hope you can tell I put in a little effort here.....there were quite a few fiddly bits let me tell ya! I'll get through the 'deets' pretty quickly, so that you can be on your way.
Annie is coloured predominantly with Prisma pencils and Copics for her skin. I paper pieced and popped the balloon and 'glittered' cake (NB. 1st fiddly bit!), and added my new bakers twine for the string (NB. 2nd fiddly bit!). Here's a close up...........
Paper is from Pine Cone Press and the 'Bingo' card is Jenni Bowlin. I made the banner using a heart shaped Martha Stewart punch, more bakers twine, added alpha stickers from my stash, and 'popped' (NB. 3rd fiddly bit!). Ribbon is from Michaels and tied in that lovely bow, using my new 'Bow Easy', and around the candle (NB.4th fiddly bit!). Oh, and lastly, although it's no doubt obvious, I paper pierced around the image, and glued onto my new lacy 'Nestie' (NB. not quite so fiddly!) OMG, only 4 'fiddly bits'.......it felt like more, believe me. Maybe I just need smaller fingers!
Wow......all this 'newness'...........can you tell it was my Birthday last week? I like this card......even my eldest DD said"Wow Mom, this will have to go to someone really special!" which is basically her 'royal seal of approval', so there ya go........mustn't be bad!
OK, so that's about it from me, although I'll probably be back a little later with some challenge hopefuls. I'll send you off for now, to the lovely Margie's blog, to go have fun in 'Blogland, and here's that magic list of awesome inspiration I promised you.........if you're joining us 'midway', head on back to the By Lori Designs blog:
