Take Time To Smell The Flowers for EBWorld Challenge



Wow, I have just realized that the month of October is nearly over!  The time is sure flying by.  I don't think I like that idea very much.

It's time for this months challenge over at Elisabeth Bells' World.  The theme this month is to create something using your favorite colors.

Of course I used my favorite colors.....  I LOVE Purple/Teal or Turquois together....

I have used "Flower Parade" formly released by Belles 'n Whistles....  She is such a little cutie... don't you think?


I've used Copics for coloring and embellished with lots of goodies from my stash.  It's always fun digging through your stash to see what you can find, or maybe what you've forgotten you had.

I'm entering this into these challenges:

It's Blog Hop Day.

I'm Glad you're here.

I'm thrilled to say that our DT girlies have all done a beautiful job.
You will surely be inspired!

Meet "Little Witch with Broom"
available now in Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection.

I've created a very simple card, and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.



I've had a ton of fun digging out some of my Halloween papers.  These are from DCWV.
I've used my Copics for coloring this little sweetie....  She really is LOADS of fun to color.
(Colors are listed below)
I still have this adorable little witch in Rubber, from when I was on the Belles 'n Whistles DT.
She definitely has gotten a lot of use, but now that she's in digital format. It's even better.
I love being able to resize, and find a ton of new uses for her.

What do you think of my "cob webs"?  LOL
Look at the things you can use a cotton ball for!

No flowers, no frills really, I just wanted to keep it simple and let the focus be completely on my darling little witch.

You're next stop will be Alethea's Blog...

Add a Pumpkin...... or two!




What a beautiful Autumn day it's been here today.  So I'm glad I get to share my creation on a day like this.

I've created this Autumn themed card for this months challenge over at Elphine House Australia's Challenge Blog.  The theme was to add a pumpkin... so of course I added not one, but two.  LOL

I've used "Sophie - Sitting on Timber Throne" from Elphine House Australia... She is truly a doll, and I thought she'd be beautiful sitting there and adding a couple of pumpkins.... This is exactly what I would have loved to be doing this afternoon ...  Relaxing on a tree stump on this beautiful Autumn day.


I've used my Copics for coloring this beauty....  and dug deep into my scrap stash, and found these fun papers from DCWV.

I've decided to enter these challenges:

Apples and Twine.... Twine and Apples...



Happy Thursday my friends,  I have another card to share with you today.  This one is for the challenge of "Apples and Twine" over on the Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog.  Any, and All Things Elisabeth Bell in one place, gotta love it!!!

This month we are sponsored by Elisabeth Bell and her digital collection.  Today I've used a stamp from Whimsy Stamps. She's a classic.... "Polka Dott" is just too cute, I had to use her for my Apples and Twine creation.



This darling image was colored with Copics. (colors listed below)
I'm not positive, but I believe that my papers are from K & Company.  I made the apple embellishments myself, topping them, as well as the apples and flowers in the adorable image with stickles just to make them sparkle a little.  I then added my twine underneath my apple embellies.  I just didn't think this card really needed any flowers, or anything extra, I wanted to the apples to be the main embellishments on this one.

Have you stopped by the Elphine House Challenge Blog lately?  They have a challenge theme of "An Apple A Day" ...  You could join both challenges this month.... Just like with Elisabeth Bell's World, Elphine House Australia's Challenge blog also will allow you to use ANY Elisabeth Bell Design. 

Also, don't forget The Digi Bells currently have a blog hop going on.... There is only 1 day left to join us... I promise you will find lots of inspiration along the way, and this month there will be FOUR WINNERS....  Wouldn't you like to be one of them?

Welcome to this months fabulous Digi release, featuring (not one, but TWO) of Elisabeth Bell's FABULOUS works of art to her Digital Collection.  What a perfect set for this time of year.

Meet "Corn Basket Beauty" and "Hay Day"... I've decided to use both of them on my creation today.





I've colored my image using  Copic Markers. (I've listed the colors below)

The papers I used are from my scraps stash.  It's always fun to go digging into the holiday scraps and see what I can find.  The tag, leaves, and acorns are from Elizabeth Crafts Die Set, called Holly/Berries, Acorns/Leaves.
The pumpkin is a digi from C.C. Designs.

An Apple A Day......



You know what they say?  An Apple a Day keeps the Dr. away!  Do you think that's true?  Hmmm, I'm not so sure about that, but of course eating healthy will definitely help!  LOL

Today I have a tag to share with you all, using Elphine House Australia's "Sasha with Red and Golden Apples"   She was such a fun image to color.  This month the Challenge over at Elphine House Australia's challenge blog is "An Apple A Day"....  The DT girls and I all seem to have decided to use this very same image.  Talk about a major coincidence.  LOL

With Elisabeth Bell having SOOOO many designs out there that have an apple theme, it shouldn't be too hard to play along, so I invite you to join us if you can.  I love this time of year, and the whole "apple" theme of things.  I would LOVE to see what ideas you all can come up with for this challenge.




I've colored my image with Copic markers, and used odds and ends from my scrap stash for embellishing.
Wouldn't this tag be adorable on a basket of apples?  That's all I could think of the whole time I was making it.  What a fabulous gift idea for this time of year.

Just a Little Note, Featuring Apple Berry



Good Morning!  I've got a little bit of inspiration to share with you! I've made a Criss-Cross card, featuring "Apple Berry" from Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection.  I've shared this over on The Digi Bells Blog today as well.  I hope you enjoy it.



The inside looks like this.... when you pull it out....  There is also a place for writing more on the back side... Because if you are like me, you would never have only a little bit to say when sending a little note.
I would definitely NEED to continue my writing on the back.  LOL




Everything was colored using my Copics (a list of colors used is below) 

My flowers are not the greatest this time around, but I did try to create a flower that resembled an apple blossom.  Yep, I'd say I need to work on that a bit more...  

The "apple" themed paper is actually a stamp from Magnolia, that I've scanned, and reduced the size, and made into a pattern and then printed it out.  I also colored each of those individual apples using copics.  I completely enjoy creating papers. Sometimes it's just FUN just to do something different, and make the perfect paper to go along with an image that I'm using.
Have you seen some of the digital papers I've made?
You can find them in the Tab along the top of my blog.

Don't forget to mark your calendars.  The Digi Bells DT will be having another blog hop on Friday....  (September 19th)

We hope to see you joining us for this months fun...
