Elisabeth Bell's Kiki with Dolly... So Stinkin' CUUUUUTE!

 I LOVE this sweet Little Stamp! I am so happy that Sweet Pea now carries Elizabeth Bell... how darling !

My precious Ava had a little outfit like this when she was little...and this stamp just reminded me of her at that age! And yes... she was SASSY! I tried to make the flowers look like strawberry blossoms... and all the dots... well, they just make me happy!

I colored this image with distress inks and the skin was copic markers.

Be sure to check out the NEW Elizabeth Bell stamps at today!

Paper Pretties Preview... Are Ya Ready For Some...

FOOTBALL??? How darling is this little foot ball guy? I love the stamps for boys... (now that I have one) and I just dont think that this guy could be any cuter! I colored him with copic markers and had so much fun doing it! I Really enjoyed the versatility of this stamp because it comes with many other sayings that are just perfect for boys of all ages! I adhered him to a cranberry panel after I cut him out and I thought that this football "star" would look awesome on some paper wmbossed with stars! Then I added the sentiment and detailed it with Viva Decor pens. Be sure to check out the Paper Pretties blog on Wednesday for a fun blog hop and lots more eye candy! Thanks for stopping in!

Woodware Challenge... Anything Goes!

So... when a challenge reads "anything goes" I tend to step outside of the box and let the creativity go. SOOO, that being said... I got out the Woodware Peel Off stickers and the Pearl Ex and this is what happened. I stuck the stickers onto the cardstock and then I got my Versamarker out. I colored in the empty spaces with it and then I rubbed Pearl Ex into the when I removed the stickers, this is what I was left with. I added the Merry Christmas in the corner and tied the organza ribbon. So no real stamping at all... but I did use stamping supplies... cuz ANYTHING GOES! please remember to play along with us this week and you can be entered into a drawing to win a great monthly prize! Check out the details here...

Woodware USA Challenge Number 41... 3-2-1!!!

This is my take on the Challenge over at Woodware USA. This is a 3-2-1- challenge and that means that you will use 3 different papers,2 embellishments and one image! So here is my take on this using this precious dog set. I colored it with copic markers and then i used the bow and the hearts for the embellies and the
3 papers are the brown, the red and the argyle! I hope that you will play along with us this week at Woodware USA and we look forward to seeing what you will create!
