Claudia & Co. Customer Blog Hop


Hello and Welcome to Claudia and Company's first ever Customer Blog Hop!  We’re so excited to have you join us!  Today Claudia and Company is celebrating all of US; their dear friends and customers and that includes YOU!
If you’ve just joined the fun, pop over to the Claudia and Company Blog  to start the hop and get all the deets!

For my card, I used this adorable  Party Time Piper digital image from Claudia & Company.  I printed little Piper off rather large at 3x5.  I LOVE to color large images, and with digis, you have that versatility with sizing, which is wonderful!!  I colored this image with my Copic markers, and I've left out the sentiment, because I've not quite decided for what occasion I'll be using this card.  I have several possibilities, so we'll just have to wait and see. 
For the edge of this card, I used my EK Success large scallop border punch.  The card stock is Pink Pirouette from Stampin' Up!, and the DP is from Basic Grey's Sugar Rush collection.  Embellishments are the 1 1/4" pink pirouette grosgrain ribbon from Stampin' Up for that BIG bow, and that pretty pearl flourish by Want 2 Scrap.  I finished this card off with a sweet little satin bow for Piper's hair, and VOILA!!  A card to celebrate Claudia & Company's Customer Blog hop!   

Be sure and leave a comment on each of today’s fabulous posts, to be eligible for the prizes that are up for grabs! You'll have until Monday, February 28, 12pm EST to comment. Winners will be announced on March 1, during their Release Day Showcase.  I'm so glad you could hop along with us today!  I hope you're having fun and enjoying all the inspiring creations along the way.  Have a blessed day and HAPPY STAMPING!

Here is the complete list of stops on the Hop!  Again, thanks for joining us and happy hopping!

She's so sweet!! I love the pearls on the ribbon.

Judy McMullen said...

Wow! Lorie, your coloring of this darling Piper is so very beautiful as is the whole card. Love the scalloped border, the fantastic pink ribbon with those gorgeous pearl swirls and the cute ribbon in Piper's hair. Hmmm...guess with both like to put ribbon in our girls' hair. Do you think it's because we both have just boys IRL! ;)
