Miss You, Love You Blog Hop for The Digi Bells for Elisabeth Bell!

I'm back home with my own computer, printer, and all is right with the world!  It feels good to be home but I tell you, I miss that little Lainie Loo Loo.  There's nothing like time spent with grandchildren.  It's priceless and one of life's greatest gifts.

We're here to celebrate the new release of Elisabeth Bell's Digi Collection's newest and I think, one of her sweetest images, called "Miss You, Love You."  If you've come to my blog from our Design Team Blog, you're on the right track.  If not, hope over there and start so you can see all the fabulous details about our blog hop!  Here's the lineup order:

Make sure to hop to everyone's blogs because the inspiration and designs you'll find are nothing short of spectacular!  

Let me start you off with my take on this precious baby:


I absolutely loved her!  She's colored with copics and yep, she's got stickles and Diamond Glaze all over her!  The soft papers are from K&Company and I tried not to let the card get too busy so the softness would shine through.  the butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and the pearls are from Studio 112.  I used some distressed inks around the image and the inside.  I loved working her up and hope you enjoy her.  Here's a couple of different views of her.




I've had a lot of "Miss You, Love You" minutes in my life.  I remember standing on the pier watching my husband's ship pull out.  It was always hard to say good-bye but you always try to take them with grace and dignity.  That's what I saw when I laid eyes on this cutie.  I think she's a must have and I'd hate for you to miss out on her!

Now hop on over to Sebrina's  blog and see what fabulous and amazing project she has in store for you!

So cute! Love the stickles AND the interior of your card! I have to admit that I don't "do" the insides enough, and now I'm tempted to go back and add decoration to the cards I still have at home! :) Thanks for sharing, LOVE the image!
