A Card and Elisabeth Bell Candy Coming!






Good day!
I hope everyone is looking forward to the weekend. My oldest son will be off at a youth retreat this weekend. He'll be playing the bass guitar with the worship band. Too cool!



I want to introduce you to another of Anki's Sweethearts...this is Emilia. She comes with the heart, though I chose to stamp her twice, on the red cs and on white so I could cut and pop her. She's colored with oil pastels and pencils. I used the SCS color challenge CC212 pink pirouette, riding hood red and choc chip for inspiration. My talented design team buddy Danni of Danni's Dreams has the weekly Flutter By challenge (to use butterflies or fairies) and this week we were to refrain from using DP. Well, since you can easily make your own DP I chose to go with hearts and butterflies for accents. I used pink on pink for the butterflies, you can see them if you blow up my pix and the little pink hearts, both are from the Flights of Fancy set from Hot off the Press. There are 19 stamps in the set; angel & butterfly wings, crowns, hearts and butterflies, I love that you can put wings on any image! The Crazy Amigo challenge also called for butterflies this week. The sketch is from the Beary Box challenge, you have until Sunday morning to participate. I actually won a Sarah Kay stamp recently from that challenge, I can't wait until it arrives! Ya can't win if you don't play!!! And the ABC challenge is at the letter H for hearts. So there ya go! Lots of fun to be had!



The above stamps can be purchased at Susana's store! She also has the new Spellbinders in, along with bundles of copics and the memento inks...one stop shopping!
