A new month is nearly upon us but before we get there it is time for our Monthly blog hop at The Digi Bell's featuring the truly talented Elisabeth Bell's newest digi.

I absolutely adore this new image.. I coloured Em Jay in with tria markers and I can't really take any other credit. I had some old card fronts from kinder and this beautiful flower lattice with rhinestones was on some of them so I thought it would be perfect for this card. That's it from me...

Zoe Butterfly!

It is my turn to post over on The Digi Bell's Blog. I have been asked by my Niece to make a message book for her 21st birthday this weekend so I decided to pull out my new Brother Scan n Cut and get creative (haven't quite mastered it yet). Well 8 hours later here is the front cover (will put the rest together tomorrow) .....
Apologies for the photo but it's pretty late... I used Zoe Butterfly (a freebie) from Elisabeth Bell's creative e-book. I created the balloon background with my brother Scan n Cut as well as the 21's the sentiment and the scalloped oval. I inked around the sentiment, added rhinestones around the oval added a pearl in each corner and the ribbon down the side. And the baby photo of my Niece to complete the front cover. I hope she likes it.

Anything Goes at Southern Girls Challenge!

It is time for a new challenge at Southern Girls challenge and it's a nice easy theme this fortnight - Anything Goes. We are sponsored by


I decided to make a card without an image this challenge instead getting a bit creative with some techniques I learnt at a craft show last year.

I created the background by inking the white cardstock with a couple of different coloured distress inks.  then placed a stencil over the top and sprayed the cardstock with water which then left the brick work pattern. Then I used the cogs stencil and used black ink to create the top image.To finish off the card I added the buttons and coloured the chipboard letters in with ink and topped it with crystal effects...
I hope that you can join us this fortnight at Southern Girls challenge.

Always Anything Goes at Craft Your Passion!

A new challenge has started at Craft Your Passion and as always it is Anything Goes. Our sponsor this week is

Little Blue Button Stamps

I coloured Miss Lily and Toby in with tria markers. I decided not to add any embellishments to this card cos I thought the image was enough with the border punched on the white card stock and the embossed purple cardstock.
I ope that you can join us this week at Craft Your Passion.

Laundry Peeker!

It is my turn to post on The Digi Bell's blog so here I am with a quick post to share with you the newest Elisabeth Bell Dollar Digi - Laundry Peeker. I do have to apologise for my colouring.. I was not using my lamp that helps me see what I am colouring.
I actually recycled bits and pieces from my scrap stash to make this card then added the stars to finish it off... This image is available for the next few days at the bargain price of $1 so go and get it while you can.

Make Your own flowers at Elisabeth Bell's World!!!

Another month has passed and already we are in April... Which means I am a year older than last year already... Boy the time is flying passed too quickly.
A new challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World and this month we would like to see you make your own flowers....
I loved this challenge as I feel I have been making the same sort of card again and again so I went back to a time where I used to put a lot of time into my cards.... Now this card may be CAS but I think the flowers made the image pop without taking over.
I used Fashionably Cute which was once available at Sweet Pea Stamps. I think she is just beautiful and perfect for this challenge. I coloured fashionably Cute in with tria markers. I wrapped the ribbon around the middle then made my flowers by punching the flowers out, placing them in water then scrunching them up. I carefully opened them up and put them together with a brad. I had forgotten how beautiful these flowers are and will be making more in the future.  then just added a couple of butterflies.
For all the details of this challenge head on over to the Elisabeth Bell's World challenge blog. Remember that you can use any Elisabeth Bell image from any of the fabulous companies Elisabeth Designs stamps for.
