Whipper Snapper Blog Hop Featuring Faith's Images and CANDY!

Today we are blog hopping to showcase Faith's new Whipper Snapper Designs and her digital papers that are available at Designed2Delight!
 
As a thank you for hopping, there will be a surprise for our hoppers!  Each  stop on the hop may also give away a $3 Gift Voucher to the D2D store to a random commenter, so leave us some love!! I will select my winner on Tuesday, and Faith will post a list of winners on the D2D blog on Wednesday!
As a thank you for hopping, there will be a surprise for our hoppers...be sure to hop to the very end!

 So if you have arrived from Michelle H's blog, you are right on track, and if not....be sure to start at the beginning on the Designed2Delight blog and leave us some love along the way!!

My first card features the Whipper Snapper image called Whoo Loves You.  I colored my image with Copic Markers and then I added some leafy texture by adding some colorless blending solution with an old washcloth. 

The designer papers on this card are from her new Digital Designer Paper Packs. I printed four different patterns and then used them for a quilted effect on my cards.
My second card features a great fall image called Patchwork Pumpkin. 

The Copic Markers I used on these cards are:  E49, E47, E44, E43, E42, E41, E59, E57, YG97, YG95, YG93, W7, W5, W3, B97, B93, YR16, YR15, YR07, Y21.

Thanks for hopping with us...hope you were inspired along the way!  Finish your hop by hopping on back to Faith's blog!!
