OCC - Add a Doodle

Hello Everyone!!
Hope you all had a wonderful week and that you are ready for some fun this week at the
OCC Challenge Blog.

The Challenge this week is to Add a Doodle to your card/project!!
Something in your own hand... it could be writing a word or adding some hand drawn stitches, anything just have a blast!!
When you hop over to the OCC you will notice we have a few new faces, we have some new additions to the Design Team~ Robin Willis, Frances Byren, Jenny Gropp, Loretta Lock and Vicki Garrett!! Welcome Girls!! We are so excited for you to join us!! I have to say that already in just the few short days we have been working together is has been so fun and feels so right!! I can already tell that this is gonna be one fine Design Team!! Woo Hoo...Go OCC!!

I was torn about putting my hand drawn image on my card, if you have been reading my blog for awhile, then you know that it is a dream of mine to one day create my own stamp line. I have a great desire for this, but I only want it IF it is God's Will for me and my family and only when He says the time is right, so until then I will continue to doodle and dream. I was actually a little scared to put my images out there as for when I do I know that I am allowing others to view them and possibly steal the idea and part of or all the image that I have designed. I decided to go ahead and place my hand drawn image on my blog as well as the OCC Blog, because my images are copyrighted and I trust that what is meant to be will be!!
Therefore, without further card and image!! Tah-dah!!!

Image: By LORi Designs ~ Copyrighted04/2009 LORI BOYD
SU! Cardstock: So Saffron, Bashful Blue & Whisper White
Designer Paper: Chatter Box
Ribbon: Stampin' Up! So Saffron Ribbon

Tools: Cuttlebug, CB Embossing Folder Swiss Dots, SU! Double Rectange Punch (for border)
What I doodled:
I hand wrote the sentiment Baby BOY, added the plaid on the sentiment oval and drew the image of the baby, which is 100% property of & copyrighted by LORI BOYD 2004~2009.
Please DO NOT Copy!!
Thank You!

All this, AND you're an illustrator too? I adore your image. I had to carefully re-read your post to figure out whether you'd added a small doodle. I couldn't find the doodle anywhere on this wonderful stamp, and after the 3rd time reading your post it dawned on me that the entire image had been drawn by your hand. Yes, I'm quick that way. This is superb!

Lori what an adorable card! And yes! YOU have every right and God given talent to do a stamp line! When can I shop? teehee! :D I know what you mean about cometitive people who decide to take your idea and run with it. The Christian part of me wants to say that imitation is a form of flattery, but the human side of me gets upset that it came from my heart and mind, and that someone else is taking credit for it! Regardless, your style is truly a LoRi exclusive and so great. Thank you for the awesome eye candy on a beautiful Saturday!

Super cute, Lori! Great drawing and sentiment!!

Christine said...

You could totally draw your own stamp line. Your little guy is so cute and I wish I could write a sentiment that way. I'd never buy a stamp.

Silke Ledlow said...

Simone said...

Great card! What a funny image!

Maria Matter said...

Another Wowzer, Lori! This little guy is uber cute! Even your handwriting is lovely! You're sure to have your own line one day!
But I hear ya about the Lord's timing! So you're on the right track...praying you hear His voice clearly and receive His wisdom to know what to do and when to do it!
Blessings, Maria
