The Digi Bells Blog Hop

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the upcoming Easter weekend.  It's pouring rain here today, but hopefully the weather will improve by Easter Sunday.  As promised, I am here with this month's Digi Bells Blog Hop.  Today, we have a new digi to welcome to the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection!  This one is from Elisabeth's archive, being brought back as a digi.  It's so adorable!

Introducing Dolly's Picnic:

You should have arrived at my blog from Julie's wonderful blog.  If not, you should head back to the Digi Bells DT blog and start from there so you don't miss a single gorgeous creation!

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Soft Sky and the pretty Spring patterned papers are from the Webster's Pages Sunday Picnic Petite Papers pack.  I've printed the adorable image on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added in some grass and a cloudy sky with my Copics, too.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few pearls from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Your next stop on the hop is sweet Lynne's blog.  The hop runs until Friday, April 25th.  Be sure to leave a comment at every stop to be in the running to win this darling digi!  Winners will be announced on Saturday, April 26th on the Digi Bells blog.

Here is the entire line-up in case you get lost:

Enjoy the hop and have a great weekend!
