Current Inspire Me Fridays link-up HERE!




July 17, 2009

Cast your cares upon me!



















Well Today's the Day.......have you all rushed over to Susana's Custom Art & Card Design store and purchased your brand spanking new Elisabeth Bell beauties????

I hope you enjoyed the blog hop yesterday, it was great fun to see how everyone presented these new images! Today I used this sweet fairy named Danni. She's named with fellow DT member Danni (Danni's Dreams) in mind. That's why I was so thrilled to find this digi DP from Created by G. in the exact colors of Danni's Flutterby Wednesday challenge this week! I used prismas for coloring and dazzling diamonds to glitter those lovely wings!

Now, let's take a look at the challenges...
Flutterby Wednesday~use a flutter, brown & pink.
Inspirational Card Sketches~the lovely sketch.
Theme Thursday~stripes.
Dutch Dare~use dies/punches.
Created by Hand~faeries/fairies.
Cupcake Craft ch.~blossoms & butterflies.
Creative Inspirations(Wed)~stitching. ( I did faux stitching around my big flower!)
Daring Cardmakers~fairies.
Stamping B's~butterfly.
Bee Crafty~things with wings.

If you didn't have a chance to see all the new Elisabeth Bell projects from the blog hop yesterday CLICK HERE for the links!
AND
If you didn't enter my digi GIVE-A-WAY to win 23 images from The Cutting Cafe, CLICK HERE and simply leave a comment, I'll pick a winner Friday night!

Have a great weekend! Blessings to all who read here!
