Digi Bell's September Blog Hop and Digi Release!!

Wow, can you believe it's September already!! Where has the year gone??? So it's time for another Digi Bell's Blog hop and this month we are celebrating Lynda's birthday. It was Lynda's birthday yesterday so please  join me in wishing her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

If you have arrived here from the Birthday Girl Lynda's blog then you are in the right place but if you've just stumbled across my blog then why not head back to the Digi Bell's Blog and hop along.
This month we are using the digi that Elisabeth has made special for Lynda's Birthday!!
 **Lil' Lynda's Piano Forte**
Isn't she just the cutest?? You can get her from Elisabeth Bell's Digi's now (and all the other wonderful Digi's Elisabeth has designed)
I really enjoyed colouring this image and once again went for one of my favourite color combo's, brown and pink!! Funnily enough I have never liked pink but I use it alot in my card making!!!
So here is what I created!!!

I coloured her in with tria markers and I have used Wink of Stella Glitter Pens to put some shimmer through her hair and dolly's hair!! I used paper from my stash, dipped the doily in some tea water and inked the chipboard flourish with a brown ink and then added kindyglitz. I then added all my favourite embellishments, buttons, flowers and rhinestones. I made this card in very quick time and I absolutely love the way it turned out!!

So would you like the chance to win this gorgeous digi?? Why wouldn't you?
All you have to do is hop through and leave comments on EACH blog. Two winners will be chosen from all the comments. You  will have until September 30 at 9 AM (Arizona Time) to leave comments. The winners will be picked and posted to the Digi Bells Blog on November 1, 2011.

The second way to win will be to do the hop, leave comments on EACH blog and then to make a
card and post it on the Digi Bell Blog. The theme is ÄNYTHING GOES as long as you use an Elisabeth Bell image from any of the companies she designs for but be sure to link back to the company the stamp is from! This will also end on September 30 at 9 AM Arizona Time and the winner will be posted on the Digi Bell's blog the next morning. (November 1)

So your now going to hop along to Kathy's Blog where I'm sure she'll dazzle you with her creativity!!
If you get lost along the way then head back to the Digi Bell's Blog for a full hop line up!!
