Digi Bells DT Post

Happy Sunday to All!!!!
Hey congrats to Ea and Lucy on winning EBell's "Little Miss Mouse" Image!!!!
It is truly going to be a very nice, sunny, warm day here in NE Wisconsin!!  I am going to spend time with my In-laws and my son and his girlfriend and her 5yr old little guy gathering pumpkins, walking in the woods and soaking in all of God's fabulous beauty!!!!!  Our son had us over for Homemade chicken soup last nite and then we shared stories around a fire---OMG I just couldn't get enough of the fun with a 5 yr old and even our 28 yr old as he is an OTR trucker.  What a blessing kids are!!!!!!
OK onto my inspiration for you today on The Digi Bell's DT Blog.
I made a wall hanging!!!
Found this cool cement heart at Joann's Craft Store and altered the design with EBell's Little Miss Mouse Image!!  OMWord it turned out so dern cute!!!!
Colored with Copics and pencils.  Cut out using Outside-the-box technique with SB circle nestie and matted with Gold Textured SB scallop circle nestie.
Shows the diamond glaze on the mushroom and on the roped design.
My new non-traditional wall hanging for fall!!! Flowers are a combo of WOC, Prima, Zva, and Store bought~~~I do think it turned out AMAZING!!!!!  Finished with pearls!~!
