It's a BLD Blog Hop!!!



Wahoo!!! It's someone's birthday!!! And in honour of our amazing leader Lori Boyd's birthday we're having a blog hop to celebrate some new releases!!! Lori's birthday...and she's giving her customers a gift of new stamps to play with.  How sweet eh??? Now if you happened upon my blog today, you'll want to go back to the BLD Blog.  Otherwise you should have arrived here from Jacquie's blog.  Isn't she just fabulous?  I'm sure she had great eye candy for you to feast on.



I have two beauties for you today.  The first card uses Puddle Jumper Emily which also comes with a present and the sentiment Happy birthday.  I've watercolored the image with my Tombow Markers and a waterbrush.  I then added Diamond Stickles to the balloons and the bows in her hair and on the dress.  The layout comes from this week's Card Patterns Sketch.


My second card uses Molly, a new release from the Bug and Roo Line which is illustrated by Hannah Boyd.  That girl has her mother's talent I tell ya!!! Artists in the family that's for sure!!! Once again the image has been watercolored with my Tombow Markers and a waterbrush.  The inspiration for my card came from the polkadots on Molly's dress and as a result, I just had to use the Cosmo Cricket DP from the Pixie-licious  pack. I've used this month's Sketch for You to Try (SFYTT) by Jen del Muro.



Guess what.... you'll want to comment on everyone's blogs!! Why??  Two lucky commenters will each win a $10 Gift Certificate to By Lori Designs!!!! Who doesn't love free goodies right? 

Now... make sure you have your cup of coffee and enjoy the rest of the blog hop.  Your next stop along the way is Jennifer.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY LORI!!!! You're an amazing lady who deserves the best!!!
