A sketchy Elzybell challenge

Here's my card for this weeks' Elzybell blog challenge ~ this cool sketch from Rachel!!! Love it! I whipped this up this morning because, well, things have been hectic here. I'm sending this to my grandma (I call her mawmaw) because she's not doing well. We went to visit her in Louisiana this weekend in the hospital. The docs said yesterday that she's not improving, so they're moving her to hospice. I'm so sad. She's 86 and I can't imagine not having her around anymore.
Ok, well, you didn't come her to get bummed out! Sorry! I love Elizabeth's little sheep ~ they are just SO darling! My stamp room is also a wreck right now ~ hoping to have it all rearranged and organized very SOON!!!!! Now go take a peek at what the rest of the dt did! And let me apologize for my lack of posting ~ please don't leave me!!!

Spring Elzy sneak peeks ~ Day 3!!

Ok, first, let me apologize for the late post! Now, here's my sneakie peekie for today! This one uses Parateddy! He looks like he's having a blast, doesn't he?! I, obviously, paper pieced his blankie. He's colored w/ a copic. This sentiment would be great for Easter, also. I pierced around the white layer and also pierced through the holes that were punched out using my new EK border punch. Hope you've enjoyed all the peeks and please go check out what the rest of the DT did!!!
It is gawgeous out today, so we're taking the kiddos fishing!! Have a wonderful Sunday!!!

Springtime **Sneak Peeks** ~ Day 1

Hi there and welcome to day 1 of the Elzybell sneak peeks!!! Alright, so how stinkin' cute are these bears??!!!! I just love 'em! I colored the left and middle ones w/ SU markers and used a copic marker (sand) on the right one ~ can you tell a difference? Not sure I can. Anyway, the grass was also colored w/ a copic marker. I masked the bears and sponged some bashful blue around them for a sky effect. The sketch is from this weeks' Sketch Challenge on SCS. Did you check out the Elzybell Blog Challenge for this week yet?? It's to finish the inside of your card and also make a matching envelope. Well, in keeping w/ that challenge, I also finished the inside of this card! Here's a pic:
The sentiment is also new. The trio of flowers is
actually from a single stamp called the "flower pot trio". I just covered the flower pot so I could only stamp the flowers since I thought they fit the sentiment well.
I may take new pics in the morning ~ can't get good lighting at night, but Photoshop may have done the trick! Thanks for stopping by and check out what the rest of the 'belles have for you! And of course, more sneaks throughout the rest of the weekend!

Another Elzy challenge!

This week were were to decorate the inside of the card and also make a matching envelope. Such a cool idea! I've not caught on to the whole thing of decorating the inside of my cards, but I think it's a cool idea and may do this more often. It's a neat way to use the coordinating stamps in your sets. The single flower stamp on the envelope is the same stamp I used on the inside, except that I just stamped it in saffron so it didn't take away from the sentiment. Here's a link to check out what the rest of the DT did --- ELZYBELL challenge!!! Here's a close up of the main image:

Thanks for stopping by and please stop by tomorrow 'cuz it's SNEAK PEEK TIME!!!!!!!!!!!

An Elzybell recipe challenge

This weeks' Elzybell challenge is a recipe ~ we were to use one piece of ribbon, one circle and one embellishment. I hope it's ok that I used 7 of my "one embellishment" ~ after I finished the card, I thought that maybe I was only supposed to use one embellishment total! Oh well!! The Spring Cube image is up on dimensionals. I faux stitched on the kiwi layer and used my new border punch on the white layer (love those new punches!). The sentiment is from the Mini Tag set. Hope ya like it and check out what the rest of the dt did ~ HERE!!!!!!!!!!
