Sketch Saturday #350

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  It's still pretty cold here, but the sun is shining and that makes for a nice start to the day.  I am here with my DT card for this week's Sketch Saturday challenge.  The sponsor this week is our own Saturday Girl, Niki, who has a special prize for the winner.

Here is this week's sketch, designed by Vannessa:

 
Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Pool Party and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Jubilee "Sherbet" 6x6 pad.  The sweet image is Love is in the Air by Katerina Koukiotis, available at Sweet Pea Stamps.  It is the image we were to use for Part 2 of the Progressive Challenge in the Sweet Pea Stamps Friends and Fans FB group.  I colored it with my Copics, of course.  The sentiment is from an old Gina K. Designs set and is stamped. 

Here is a close-up of the image:

Digi Bells Blog Hop

Hi again!  I'm back, as promised, with my DT card for this month's Digi Bells Blog Hop. Today we welcome a brand new little set to the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.  You are sure to love the darling Anna and Puppy Surprise!  You may recognize these cute images.  They were once one stamp that was available from SCACD.  Lissy Bee has split them up and added them to the digital collection.  Now you can use either or both images for your creations! 

You should have arrive at my blog from the wonderful Julie's blog.  If not, you will want to head over to the Digi Bells blog and start hopping from there so you don't miss a single beautiful project.

Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Hello Honey and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Collectable "Remarkable" 6x6 pad.  I merged the two images back together and colored them with my Copics.   The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few pearls from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored images:


Thanks for stopping by!   Your next stop on the hop is the talented Linda's blog.  Be sure to leave comments at every stop along the way to increase you chances of winning one of these cute digis!  You have until Friday, March 6th to hop.  The winners will be announced on the Digi Bells blog on Saturday, March 7th.

Good morning!  Happy Wednesday!  Hope you've been having a good week so far!  Believe it or not, we are under a Winter storm warning and a state of emergency has been declared in Alabama!  It's just started drizzling now, but we may get freezing rain or snow throughout the morning.  Good grief!  Anyway, I am here now with a "two-fer".  Today starts the new Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge.  The theme is "pink".  It is also my turn to post some inspiration for you on the Digi Bells DT blog, so I've combined my projects.

Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are GKD Innocent Pink and the patterned paper is a digital paper from Michele Roos designs.  The darling image is Rachel, Little Angel from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.  I have colored her in soft pastels with my Copics.  The sentiment is stamped.  Some pretty lace, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and a few pearls from my stash finished my card. 

Here is a close-up:
