Hostess Monday with Larelyn

Hello and welcome to Hostess Monday at Digital Delights by Louby Loo.
I'm Larelyn, Senior Designer for the Delightful Challenges blog.  I've been a design team member for a little over two years (how crafty time does fly!) and began sharing creating the posts with Leslie Rahye in February.  I love, love, love Wendy's delightful images.  Her characters, especially, hold a special place in my designing heart.  I love seeing them show up for different occasions, just so much fun!!  Pippin Mouse is one of my all-time favorites so I decided to use him for today's project.

This is a "C"fold card.  It's a new design for me and it was fun to make. I watched a video by Lizzy on  That Craft Place Inspiration Blog to learn how to cut the card base.  I used Spellbinders dies for the "C" and the mats for the image.  The ribbon is my own hand died crinkle ribbon.  The butterfly (another Spellbinders die) sits on a bow made of Crafter's Floss.  The flower is from several  Martha Stewart punches and the sentiment tag is also a Spellbinders die.  The paper is Authentique.
Here are the Digital Delights products I used:

Thanks for stopping by today. 
I'd love to have you visit me to see even more projects using the wonderful images from

Meet our new Designers

Hi guys
I am super thrilled to be able to introduce to our new designers joining our existing teams at Digital Delights and Delightful Challenges.
Their first works will be shown on our blogs this Thursday!
Joining our Digital Delights team are.................
Gale - Designer
I have always been crafty. I started out with sewing and embroidery, then cross-stitch, and jewelry making. My sister got me into scrapbooking and then I started stamping and making cards. I started out with rubber stamps and have moved onto using digital stamps. I love using digital stamps.  I started using Copic markers and now have my Copic certifications. I love to bring my stamps to life with Copic markers.   I live in Texas and am married with two grown sons.  I have two grandchildren with another due anytime.

Jan - Designer
Hi my name is Jan known as Scatty Jan , I live in South West in the UK. I live with my Husband and our 3 mad cats. We have a beautiful Granddaughter who we see as much as possible. I love card making and paper crafts - I love using promarkers and most afternoons I can be found colouring away in my craft room. I am super excited to be back with Wendy and the team ( I was in the DT for a year some time ago)

Bev - Designer
I have loved creating with paper and color all of my life. Even as a child I made clothes for my paper dolls by tracing their flat bodies and adding my own designs. My primitive way of shading in my coloring books was by tracing the outside of the figures with a darker color. I am inspired by the colors of nature, where nothing is truly gray, but filled with color if we will look through our artistic eye. My background is in Plein Aire oil painting and watercolor. I live in Florida with my dear husband George and my two cats, Nick and Tinker. I teach paper crafting classes in my home.

Deborah - Designer
Hi my name is Deborah and I live in Northumberland which is on the North East Coast of England.  I’ve been married for 20 years to David and have one teenage son.  I work full-time as a PA/Secretary. I began crafting about 18 years ago when I bought my first cross stitch kit.  Many cross stitch projects later I turned more towards paper crafting – decoupage, stamping and scrapbooking.  My favourite technique at the moment is creating cards with stamped or digital images, but I love to play and try out different things. At the end of 2011 I discovered the fabulous world of blogging and eventually plucked up the courage to give it a go and created my own blog “TigerStripes” at the beginning of 2012.
Tanya - Designer
I am 35 years old and married to my high school sweetheart.  We have a beautiful 5 year old daughter named Abby who loves to stamp with me and is the light of my life.  I have been crafting for about 14 years now and have seen how much I have grown in those years.  I love the relaxation I get from it after a long day at work and love sharing my work in hopes to inspire others.  I was super excited when one of my cards was published in Crafting Ireland's online magazine, I never thought my work was good enough to be published so that was a HUGE thing for me.

Vicky - Designer
I'm an accountant working full time and a mother of 4 great kids.  I have an amazing husband who understand that in order to keep my sanity through all this I need to craft ;) I live in Quebec, Canada, so a lot of my crafting is done with French sayings. I have been crafting over 21 years and tried my hands at all kinds of techniques over the years.  I started blogging in March of 2012 in order to join challenges.  I became totally hooked!!!!  I can't believe this world existed and I only found out about it then.  I see blogging as a wonderful opportunity to improve my card making abilities. I have realized that through the web I get to meet amazing people from all over the world and learn from them.  I'm in awe of all the wonderful blogs that I see and I hope that one day my blog will be up to that level.

Marcee - Designer
Hi, I’m Marcee Rodgers and I write the iNKY Bird blog to inspire creativity and share my passion for paper-crafts. I've been paper-crafting for over 7 years and love Clean & Simple, negative space and coloring images. I'm a former scrapbooker turned card maker. I live in the Portland, Oregon area with my husband and 2 children. I am extremely blessed to be a SAH homeschooling momma.

Chris - Designer
I'm Chris, from Virginia.  I have been crafting since the summer I turned 12. I had visited my Aunt Betty and pick up her love of all things crafting.  That fall I took sewing lessons.  My dear friend, Dawn,  introduced me to paper crafts and the Cricut about 4 years ago.  Since then I have been making cards, scrapbook pages, and ATCs.
 I have been married to Larry for almost 12 years.  Between the 2 of us we have 4 children.  TJ is married to Lisa and they have our first grandchild, Kylie.  They live in Philly.  Katie and Kevin live locally and attend a local college.  Both hope to transfer to Radford University.  Katie will be a business major and Kevin wants to become a nurse.  Kelly now lives in Alabama, attends Auburn University and will be getting married May 2014. 
 We have 6 cats and 3 birds.  I enjoy reading and bowling.  Katie also bowls on our team, 9 Pins & A Wiggle

Melissa - Designer
My name is Melissa Craig, I am a single mom of 3 amazing children. I have been a papercrafter for 13 years and I love every minute of it. I also "own" challenge blog called Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Jackie - Designer
I have been an avid stamper for over 13 years now and I loved each and every minute of it. Crafts are a wonderful hobby of mine and stamping is my main focus but I also scrapbook, make candles, create floral arrangements and try just about anything crafty! I work in an architecture firm as an intern architect until I get licensed, which I think sometimes comes through in my cards in the precise lines and details I use. I am so excited to join Wendy and the Digital Delights Design Team! These stamps are all just darling and I love working with them! This is going to be a blast!
