"Spring is in the Air" - Friday Sketchers & 3 Clovers Thursday and Doraline!!

The Challenge this week at 3 Clovers Thursday is flowers...Yay!!...got lots of them here!! I've also used Carole's fabulous sketch from Friday Sketchers.

I am also introducing you to Doraline....isn't she just the Sweetest?!!! Stephanie a very kind lady that has recently started a stamp business in Canada .....ask me quite a while back if I would mind making a few cards....After seeing these cuties ....of course I said yes!!....Thank you so much Stephanie!!...Please forgive me for being so late with this!!

First off.... I must say the quality of these stamps are Wonderful and they stamp just Beautifully!!

The image Doraline is created by a 25 year old very talented artist named Marina who lives in Florida USA. There are many Doraline stamps Marina has created and they are all just as Cute!!

You can find them all right here at... "Motivet"....On this card I've used the sentiment "Spring is in the air" and "Doraline with ladybug" Click on the names to take you there.

Be sure also to check out the Inspiration Blog to see Gorgeous creations designed by their talented DT team...and .....check out how to win some fabulous FREE stamps!!

On to my card.....

I have colored the image with copics, prismacolor pencils (oms) and h20's

There is glitter on the lace on Doraline's shirt. There is diamond glaze on the lady bug and little hearts and shimmerz on the flowers. The little spacer on the small black flower is from my dear and very kind friend Tina. Thank you!! so much Tina...I love these and all the lovely spacers you sent...I have a tendency to want to hoard them...lol.

The large flower and Doraline panel is popped up with foamy's.

Paper - GP white, SU Black, Kelly Panacci, Bo Bunny

Ink - memento black, bashful blue

Accessories - flowers, brads, button, cord, stitching, lace, pearls, shimmerz, glitter, spellbinders flower die

Before I go...I want to Thank you all So Much for your kind comments and Well Wishes about my vision......I'm coming along just fine :)

I wish you all a Wonderful Weekend!! ... and Thank You So Much!!...for your Lovely comments!!

Hey Kiddo. As you know I've been away for awhile with Jay's health issues. I'm so very sorry to hear about your vision troubles. I'm so glad to hear it is treatable, and you do everything you can to make sure you take care of those eyes! My Mom suffers from macular degeneration, and that has no treatment. Our eyes are so precisous so make sure you do whatever to get them well! As always, love your card and that image is precious! I'll be thinking about you! Best, Curt
