DigiBell DT and LOTV Cards

Wishes for a Wonderful Labor Day to ALL!!!!
Hang in there this is kind of a long post!!
I have two creations here today~~Oh I love it when I have off of work and time to play~~YIPPEEE!!!!  
My First...... is My DigiBells DT creation!!!
I altered a notebook and It turned out so Luciously Gorgeous--in my eyes :D  LOL
Used the EB Digi Image~~"A Tasty Read"~~which you can find in her Collection Here!!!
Colored with Copics--Accented with Gelly Roll white pen--Inked edges with TH mustard seed and then walnut stain DI's.  Cut out with SB oval nestie using the out of the ?????? technique~~oh drawing a blank :) Oh well it is a day to not think--right???:D
Used this sketch from Totally Gorjuss~~oh so fun!!!!
More details~~ Papers used are MME-Stella and Rose pack!! Image is popped upon a SB Beaded Circle which was cut out of a soft colored orange cardstock and then sponged with TH--DI's like the image was ;)  Gave it a vibrant glow!  Fancied corners of notebook with SB Fleur De Lis Pendant die.  Detailing added using Viva Decor cream pearl pen, MS butterfly punches, Modern Romance flowers that I got at Michael's, twine, and EK Success corner punch made the little leaves.
OK now I have to show you back of notebook.....
Entering Challenges: 
Stamp Something~~Digi Day
Totally Papercrafts #82 ~~ Not a card!!
Charisma #35~~Anything Goes
My second card......~~ LOTV easel card~~can be anniversary, wedding, engagement, or just an "I Love You" card!!!  Pops has a fabby sketch at The LOTV Challenge Blog!!!
Papers are Prima Sparkling Spring Collection.  All matting done with black CS.  See the MiCrafty Chippie in the corner-I painted with Iridescent medium and added Viva glitter liner pearl and PM rhinestone--Oh I love these chippies!!!!!!
Inside of card:  Added a CB embossed tag--inked edges and embossed swirls with TH Stormy sky and then added viva decor rose and lt blue paper pen pearls!!  Below are close ups!

Tried my hand at Watercoloring with TH--DI's.  Quite fun I thought :D What do you think of the end result~Would love to know?????  Isn't this image just the SWEETEST!!  After done coloring I added diamond glaze to her foot paddies and hearts :)~~teeny tiny PM rhinestones to some flower centers :)~~ a few lime green stickles in the grass :)~~and his tail is glaze topped with halographic glitter :D  Outlined SB nesties with Viva Decor glitter liner!!  Enough sparkle for you--LOL!!!!
Flowers are Wild Orchid and others from my stash. They have all been sparkled with stardust stickles.  The Leaves are FSS and I gave them some Viva glitter liner pearls too :)
