Introducing Ella and BY LORi Designs

Hello dear delightful friends and family!

I have a new digi stamp and illustrator to share with you today. The digi is Ella and oh what a sweetie! Oh my goodness talk about cuteness! Her creator is Lori Boyd and you can find her at By LORi Designs You should head over to her blog and check out her sweet digi design work! Adorable stuff and super fun to color.

I made this card last night for my niece (Bobbi) who lives in Oregon. It was her birthday a couple weeks ago and I knew she would be in town this weekend so I thought this would make her smile, especially after she runs her race today (Clam Beach Run in Northern Calif. ) with her mom, my sister Nicki. These two are crazy runners! Running is not my cup of tea, I wish it was then perhaps I would not be battling the weight all the time. However, today I did spend a couple of hours with the kids and grandkids shooting hoops and running after t-ball hits etc. so I did get my exercise! I even beat my dear hubby at H-O-R-S-E TWICE!! (tee-hee) I've still got the soft touch when it comes to the hoops!! We managed to get a good afternoon of fun in and now it's pouring down rain. Thank you Lord for making the rain hold off so we could play!!
