Elisabeth Bell Stamps for SCACD-Spunkette

Ok, how fun is this???? I am really enjoying these Elisabeth Bell beauties! This little pixie, Spunkette is so sweet! I love glittering her wings!

So did you receive your EB stamps yet? Are you having fun with them....well, we would love to see your creations...there is a Susana's Custom Art and Card Design gallery over on Splitcoast Stampers (SCS) just use the keyword SCACD and we can all enjoy looking at them and be inspired!

Today, I wanted to make a girly girl card. Spunkette, being 'covered' in flower petals was perfect! I colored with prisma pencils and used magenta Shimmerz on her petals. The background is computer generated by Joni Gray...isn't it lovely?! I simply re-sized it for my card and embellished a bit!

If you didn't get your Elisabeth Bell stamps (these are an exclusive line of EB stamps) hop on over to the SCACD store and grab 'em! Susana has a special to save you 25% if you buy the set! It doesn't get much better than that!

The challenges...
Cutie Sunday~ the sketch.
Timeless Tue.~use Shimmerz.
C.R.A.F.T.~ pink & green
Stamp Something~winged things.
Three Clovers~bling.
Papertake Weekly~your choice.
CCEE~summer fun.

Well, we had a big bang to start our weekend! We hosted a 'small group' from our church last night. After more horrible downpours earlier in the day, the sunshine came out and the humidity lifted to make for a very pleasant evening outside around the firepit! We had fun making S'mores (thank you Linda & Dan), chatting and laughing...alot! And, of course, ended the evening (early morning, actually!) with some big fireworks!
Have a super weekend...Blessings!
