Time Flies

Here is Ella in Trouble (redux) which you can find at Mo's Digital Pencil. I just had to have her as she reminded me of my daughter. When she was two, I found her in my room surrounded by my makeup, nail polish splattered on the carpet and makeup smeared on her face. I didn't know if I should be mad, laugh at the scene, or cry because of the inevitable polish cleanup! 

This will be the perfect card for when she is older and we can reminisce about her sweet, adorable attempt at being grownup. 

I used an old MME paper pad and some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. The stamps on the tag, sentiment and the clock are Prima from the Printery collection. I used a lot of the Shabby Pink Frantage and Walnut Stain to distress and stamp with. I also used some Liquid Pearls to give Ella's necklace some dimension.
I colored her a while back and cannot remember what I used. I definitely think I have improved in my coloring. Either that or the different paper helps.

As always, thanks for the positive comments and enjoy your weekend!

Love Ya!

Little Elf Finn

Hello fellow crafters! For today I have a Christmas card starring the playful Little Elf Finn from Mo's Digital Pencil. I am sharing this card on Mo's Dream Team blog as I do every Saturday GMT time or Fridays here in the US. There is new inspiration twice a day every day of the week over there, so go have a look if you haven't already.
I have used My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Christmas. It is such a versatile Christmas paper pad. My last card (here) using this paper has such a different look.
I have Wild Orchid Flowers lightly coated with gesso and a Martha Stewart pine punch. The music sheet is from the paper as is the tag I made. On the tag I have some mini jingle bell and seam binding which I have added Red Brick DI to. The sentiment is wrapped around a miniature spool (so cute!). Some stitching, cheesecloth, Frantage and a doily round out the embellies.

Skin-E000,00,11,21 R20
Ornament- Blender,C0,3, E41, R32

Pumps and Pearls
We have three wonderful sponsors, so there are three chances to win a prize and of course a chance to be a Spotlighted Winner and be in our Top Three!

I chose to use Devastasia. I have had her printed for some time as I really wanted to color her but never was the right occasion. Her boots aren't technically pumps but they are pump-like. 

I used Prima's Moulin Rouge papers and Wild Orchid Craft flowers. I used a pearl flourish from Michael's and cheesecloth under the flowers for texture.

Bubble Heart

I am happy to be back to share a card using Mo Manning's Bubble Heart! The image is so adorable I knew I had to color it up for a card for my husband.

I wish the picture came out a little better because the colors are more vibrant in person.

I used Pink Paislee's London Market and cut the butterfly out from one of the papers. The frame is made using a Martha Stewart mold and the stamp is a Prima stamp from the Printery collection. I destressed the edges of the paper and stitched and faux stitched some.
