Baby Buggy

I love the vintage feel of this digi from Digi Doodle Shop. It is such a sweet image to color in. I had this vintage looking paper and felt like it would be perfect for this image. I had just received my new pro markers and the colors match perfectly. I was very excited to use them and test them out.

I wanted to compare pro markers to copics. I like them both in different ways. The pro markers are cheaper and I really like the fine tip and the way they blend. On the other hand Copics blend very well too but have a bigger selection on colors and the shape of the marker is not quite so fat. I really think it is probably a toss up. I will probably continute to buy both if I cant find similar colors in the pro markers.

Digi Doodle Shop also has a challenge blog . You will want to go over to Digi Doodle Shop and check them out for sure.

There are alot of fabulous cards made this week by my design team over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. You will want to bug on over and check them out. We have one great line up. I was planning on doing two cards for Digi Doodle Shop but came down sick. So this week you will only see one. Hope you had a very sweet 4th of July.



  1. Hi Arlana, I do adore your card, I loved the sketch it was amazing to work with and the image were great to colour so easy and they look wonderful. I loved what you did with your card and turned the ends over of the nestabilities might just try that one of these days. Hugs Kathie

  2. Morning Arlana!
    I love the vintage look of this card. Isn't that old style pram just gorgeous. I always admire the stitching on your cards. I must get my sewing machine out. Thanks for the great inspiration :)


  3. Good morning Arlana! What a beautiful card. The colors are wonderful - I love the vintage look. The fold over on the corner is very striking - love the added gems to them. Hope you are feeling better.

  4. Arlana this is So sweet!!! Your beautiful coloring and papers are perfect for the vintage touch. I really like the added touch with the folded corners and brads. Hope you're feeling better!

  5. Well this is one stunning card Arlana!!! I love the way you treated the corners with a fold and a rhinestone -- you are one clever girl!!! And of course I love your sewing!!! Feel better real soon, okay?!


  6. Ohh Arlana, You out did yourself on this one. It ia adorable. I love the vintage feel to your card and love how you turned the corners down with brads. Your paper is perfect for the image and I love the bed of the buggy. It looks so real. I hope you are having a better day. Love ya!

  7. Arlana, this is an awesome card! I love the soft colors and you always amaze me with how you construct the card. I love your image too!

  8. Arlana, this is just an absolutely amazing card. The image is really beautiful and I love all the details you've added.

    I feel the same way you do about Copics vs Promarkers. I think the price of Copics at iCopic is very good and their shipping is reasonable. But, Michaels sells Prismacolor markers which I think are same thing and you can use a 40% coupon.

  9. Arlana this is just lovely! So soft and sweet. I love the vintage feel also! I haven't tried Promarkers, but your image looks fabulous!

  10. Stunning card Arlana! Congrats on the new Promarkers, i'm on the hunt for Copics myself trying to decide whether to go the sketch route or the ciao route. Decisions, decisions! Love how you folded your scallop in. Great idea!

  11. Arlana, What a beautiful vintage pram! Your papers are so gorgeous and give such a soft warm feel to the card! I also love your turned corners on the are always thinking up something new! And we all love it! Hope you are finally feeling better!


Have a Sweet day!!!
