How can you win your own Merry Weather digi image? You'll have to hop through and leave comments on EACH blog. [You can find the full list of 13 other blogs at the Digi Bells Design Team blog (here).] Lynda will pick 2 blogs at random and the winners will be picked from those comments. The hoppers will have until Friday, Mar. 22, 2013 at 9 AM to leave comments. The winners will be posted at the Digi Bells' blog on Saturday, Mar. 23, 2013.
Reminder: Buying then sharing digital images is theft. Sharing digital images takes income away from the artist.

This little barefoot sweetie checks the temperature of a shallow Spring puddle as she carefully lifts her dress so as not to get it wet.
Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image. I've attempted to add some light reflections in the water. My Favorite Things Die-namics Cloud Trio set provides my clouds. Yellow Stickles cover the headband and flower centers.
Patterned papers from a Lilly Bimble collection included with the February 2013 issue of Quick Cards magazine, bordered with faux stitching, are layered with Bazzill cardstock to form my side-open card. An American Crafts "Spring" ribbon is layered with Wyla pleated white lace and a Martha Stewart Skylands Snowflake edge punch to form a grounding border and also forms my ribbon bow.
My image is shaped with an older Sizzix original red Super Scallop Tag. A Close To My Heart Pair-a-Phrase sentiment is popped up on the front and continues through to the inside of my card. A handmade accent blossom made from a small flower Punch Bunch and mini suns sets over my stamped sentiment. An older Sizzix original red Eyelet Washers #2 flower reinforcement is set at the top of my tag, holds a We R Memory Keepers large eyelet in baby blush pink and is tied with an Offray 1/8" mini dot bright yellow ribbon.
Spellbinders Floral Flourishes, layered with Want2Scrap Maxxi Girl Jumbo silver rhinestone swirls provide movement at the sides of my image.
The inside supports the front and shows the continuation of the Close To My Heart Pair-a-Phrase stamped sentiment. A Close To My Heart Treasures "sunshine" stamp adds Adirondack Dye Butterscotch ink color to the bottom of my tag.
