Happy Anyaversary Blog Hop

Good morning, and welcome to the Anyaversary Blog Hop! I'm not going to waste any time, because I know there are over 80 blogs to hop today, so I'll make this post short and sweet. My card is made with one of The Greeting Farm's digital stamps. Meet Pretty Head Lily. If you haven't tried digital stamps yet, I encourage you to give them a try. Talk about instant gratification! The Greeting Farm has a fantastic selection of digital stamps, so be sure to check them out! I promise you won't be disappointed!! The sketch for this card came from The Greeting Farm as well. When you drop by there to check out those digis, be sure to check out their Farm Fresh Friday Challenges. You'll find lots of great inspiration from their fabulous design team!!
This is a closer look at the image and the beautiful K&Co. Designer Paper. The glitter on this paper is gorgeous, but it goes everywhere!! I colored Lily with my SU inks and an aquapainter/blender pen. Miss Lily was so much fun to color, and I especially liked doing her make-up!! As always, I just started watercoloring, and chose colors I liked... Then I went in search of paper. I don't know why I do that, but it always works out for me. Kind of a backward way of doing things, I know, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it. LOL!!
Thank you so much for joining me today, and if you like what you see, please consider becoming a follower of my blog, so you won't miss a thing! Have a blessed and glorious day, and Happy Hopping!!


Love Ya!
