New Challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are all well.  Did you have a good weekend?  I had a relaxing one, it was so cold I just tried to stay warm the whole time!  

Today we have a brand new challenge over at Elisabeth Bell's World and we have a sketch challenge for this month:


Here is my card:





I have just realised that I have missed a layer on the sketch, oops!  Moving swiftly on!  I have used the pretty Patches 'n Braids from Belles 'n Whistles.  The gorgeous paper is from Bazzill Basics  - Vintage Marketplace.  I really like the pink and green colour combination in this pack.  I have added some glamour dust, mulberry flowers, pearl and little punched out butterflies. A really girly card!

Pop on over to the EBW challenge blog to check out the rest of the inspiration from the DT and I hope you can join us this month.  

Have a great day and I will see you soon!

Love and Hugs

Sketch Time at MAWTT

Good Morning All!

I hope you are well and your week is going ok!  

I am back today as part of Team A over at Moving Along with The Times with a brand new challenge.  Our fabulous Shell is the hostess and she has given us a great sketch. I love working with sketches and this one is great to use.

Here is my card:




We are sponsored by the fabulous Melissa at Meljen's Designs


She has some amazing whimsical images, do go and check out her fabulous store.  She also has a facebook page here and a challenge blog here!  

I have used a pre-coloured image called Johnny Bird Boots.  Isn't he such fun!!  I wanted to use fresh, spring colours with him and I thought my new Echo Park - So Happy Together pack was perfect.  I added some little buttons from my stash and a little bit of glamour dust!

OK, that's it from me, pop on over to the challenge blog to see all my teamies inspiration and I hope you can join in this week!

Have a great day!

Elisabeth Bell - Easter Basket


Morning All!

I hope you had a great weekend.  At least the sun shone for part of it which was lovely!  

I am back today with my project for the Digi Bells using another of Elisabeth Bell's gorgeous digi images which you can check out at the digi gallery.  

I decided to do something a little different. I was looking through all the digi images that I had to try and decide which one to use and noticed the Easter Basket image.  This is an accessory image but thought I would use it on its own to make a little gift bag which you could use to give little Easter eggs.  Here is my project:




I know the photos are rubbish.  However many times I took a photo it just didn't come out that well.  Anyway, I coloured the image with copics and used a small white gift bag from Hobbycraft.  The papers are from First Edition called Spring Drop and the sentiment is computer generated.  I think the bag will be great filled with little eggs!  

I promise it does look better in real life!

You can see more great inspiration at the Digi Bells blog so please do go and check it out.  

Well that's it from me today.  Have a great day, I am off work today so I am going to have some fun colouring (I hope!).  See you soon!

Love and Hugs

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Do you have anything romantic planned today or do you just ignore this day!!  I don't normally bother but I am being taken out for a lovely meal this evening so this year will be a little different for me!  

I wanted to share with you today a card I made for Valentine's day, I hope you like it!





I have used "Puppy Love" from Saturated Canary and the papers are Maja Designs (must buy some more!) - Life in the Country.  I have used the same sentiment I used on my last card which is from Hannelie at Desert Diva.  I didn't want to make this too girly so I resisted using any glamour dust or flowers!  Just added a couple of pearls here and there!

I hope you like it!  Have a wonderful day!

Measure of Love

Good Afternoon All

Happy Chinese New Year to those who celebrate.  I went out for a lovely Chinese meal last night to get into the mood, yummy!!  

I made a valentines day card for one of my design teams but realised that the challenge wasn't until after valentines day so thought I would just do another one and share this with you today instead!!  

Here is my card:





I loved this image from Meljen's Designs here.  I added glossy accents to the hearts and sprinkled some glamour dust before it dried so they sparkle as well!!  The sentiment is a freebie from Hannelie at Desert Diva.  I was introduced to her from my teamie at MAWTT - Riette.  She has some great free sentiments to download and use so do go along and check them out.  The papers are called Me to You - With Love which were free with a magazine.  The die is La La Land Heart Banner Die.

Right, that's it from me today.  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday afternoon, we are forecast to have snow again later :-(!

Elisabeth Bell Blog Hop!!

Hi Everyone!!

Its almost the weekend!!  Can you believe its February already, where did January go!!  Anyway I'm not complaining, the days are getting a little longer, Spring will almost be here!!

Enough waffle, got something much more exciting to talk about!  We have another brand new digi release from the pen of the fabulous Elisabeth Bell!!  You will love her.  She is called "Miss You, Love You" which you can get right now at the Digital Gallery.  

As always we are having a blog hop to celebrate!  You should have arrived here from the super talented Carla!  If you get lost head back to the Digi Bells blog to start from there!  Here is my card:

 



I really enjoyed making this card!  I love the new image and I have used my favourite colours!  I decided to add some flowers and gems, together with some lace ribbon and another heart from my friend Lisa.  It has a slightly vintage feel I think.  

I do hope you like it.  You now need to hop on over to the gorgeous Julie who I am sure has an amazing project to show you!  

The hop will run until 9am Arizon Time on Friday 8 February.  Leave a comment on each DT blog and on the Digi Bells blog to be in with a chance of winning this gorgeous image!
