Life is Sweeter When Shared With Friends -By Lori Designs Challenge #17 -DT Card!!


It's that time again for another fun "By Lori Designs" challenge!! This week Lori went with a theme week! And the theme this week is "Friendship"!! This one should be an easy peasy one as Lori's cutie digis just ooze friendship...don't they!!

Here's a little inspiration to get your mojo flowin'....


I just love, love this super cute image!! I had so much fun coloring it in! It's a special edition that's called "Celebrate Friends" and also comes with a sentiment which I chose not to use..but you can find it in Lori's shop HERE!

I made this collage with Picnik to show off some closeups and other views...I think I like this much better than clogging up the post a bunch of images...lol!


I just had to the sparkle the image up with "Stickles" when I was finished! I used an adorable sentiment from "Hero Arts" that I stamped with razzleberry ink and then heat embossed with sparkly kaleidoscope powder!

And for the inside I tried a little something different and added a pocket to the top as well as did up the personal message panel in matching papers!
