Elisabeth Bell Blog Winner

As followers of my blog will know I won Elisabeth bell challenge, and as a special guest designer for this month I was asked to make a design for this months challenge 'Spring Is In The Air'.  It was such a honour to be chosen, so I thought I would do something different than a card, so went with the idea of a door hanger.  Using my Daisy Stamp, coloured with promarkers, I distressed the edges of the wood, then added Isabelle papers from Trimcraft, and added lots of embellishments, flowers, ribbons, gems & pearls.   I was pleased with results, and my daughter Ellie loved it, so hanging with pride of place on her door x

Aw peace at last, the kids are back at school, time for some serious card making, and catching up on all the blogs :)
I did manage to make a shaker card, with the help of my daughter Ellie,  I have used the Daisy stamp from Elisabeth Bell, coloured with promarkers, in pinks and greys.  The papers are from papermania, and are some of my all time favourite papers black & pinks.  Adding some pink balls into the shaker card dome, and a sentiment.

Texting Boy

I was commissioned to make a young teens birthday card, which for a boy I find quite hard, but I found the perfect solution with this great Mo Manning image.  Coloured with promarkers, random papers, and simply embellished with buttons and twine.  The lady who's nephew this was for was thrilled, and thought it had a great resemblance to him !!
