Designed2Delight April Reveal and Blog Hop

Welcome to the Designed2Delight
April Reveal and Blog Hop.

You should have arrived here from the creative Michelle P's Blog.  She always comes up with the most creative inspirations.
If not, you will want to start at the beginning.


* All new release images will be 20% for 3 days--sale ending at 7AM Monday, April 23rd.

* I will be giving a New Release image away to someone that leaves a comment on my blog.  I will choose the winner on Monday, April 23rd at 7 AM (EST).

 "Garden Fence"


What a cute garden scene!  I love all things gardening :)  I can never have enough birthday cards, but this would also make a great Happy Mother's Day card.  Pretty simple...colored the image, added DP and ribbon, some punched edge and a crocheted flower/button combo.



I used one other new image...

What a cutie little Dottie!  I love the ladybugs, the flowers and the polka dots on her skirt and headband. I was originally going for a Spring Theme with this image, but ended up with a whole different look with the houndstooth DP and black ribbon/bow.  I colored the polka dots with my black glaze pen and added some shimmer to the heart on the flower and the bee's wings and trail with my Stardust gel pen.  Dottie is so sweet and reminds me of my darling granddaughter, Claire.

Your next stop is sweet Kathy's blog. She will wow us with her designs!

Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a free digi!

Sunshine and Happy Hopping to You!
