Christmas with Li'l Lynda

Good Day All You Special Friends~~~
I am posting today for the Digi Bells DT Blog 
I have to giggle because as I was working on this little cutie yesterday I was singing "Happy Birthday to Me"  OH Yes.... it was my birthday but.... I only count blessings now not years anymore :D 
This adorable digi image is... Li'l Lynda's Piano Forte 
 Gosh she is just adorable~~Identical to our sweet Lynda!!!!!~
You can find this sweet image in Elisabeth Bell's Digital Gallery Collection Here!!!!

OK so while crafting after singing "HB" to me~~I decided to make a Christmas Card???  Don't ask why--LOL could it be age related??? ha ha
Colored with Copics and added Ranger yellow stickles to dress lace and hairbow.  AtYou Spica silver pen sparkled dolly's heart, shoes, dog tag and note on piano!! Cut out  with SB deckled rectangle nestie.  Papers are Echo Park, Gold Bazzill textured CS and PTI brown CS.  Check out that sweet WO decorative metal corner :)
Wild Orchid flowers, MS frond leaves, a few tips of Magnolia Doohickey swirls, Viva Decor Holo Iridescent Glitter pen for blingy sparkle and that Pin...alittle story behind that pin--our youngest daughter's boyfriend is in the army and in Afghanistan sooooo to surprise her and to send his LOVE he wires flowers and gifts---yes yes the crystal pin was in a GORGEOUS arrangement  she had received and she gave them to me to create with~I added a metal spacer and heart to it :) ~~Gosh she is "A Darling"!!!!  AND AREN"T THESE ROSES MAGNIFICENT~~TRUE LOVE!!!
