Guest DT For Elisabeth Bell's World

Good morning, afternoon or evening I hope you are all enjoying your day. 

I am here today to share a card I have made as my part of being the Elisabeth Bell's Digi Bell's Collection guest. I made my card using the adorable 'Rachel Little Angel' and she really could be a little angel looking at that face.

I teamed my image with My Minds Eye Miss Caroline 'Dolled Up' papers and a frame and butterfly flourish from the Silhouette store. I am not sue why my sentiment looks bitty but really isn't, I used black holographic embossing powder so it could be where the light has caught the glitter in it. I added stickles to her wings and glossy accents to her hearts on the hair band.

Elisabeth Bell's World 'Christmas Creations' Challenge

Good morning, afternoon or evening to you all. I hope you are well, it is turning colder here in the UK by the day and I just hope we don't get quite as much snow as some countries have.

So today I am here with a card as part of my guest term for Elisabeth Bell's team. The challenge this month at Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge is 'Christmas Creations', you can use any image from Elisabeth no matter who it is retailed by. I have used 'Gingerbread Love' which was originally retailed by the now closed Belles 'n' Whistles and is currently in retirement but who knows, it may return once Lissy Bee Stamps start producing from December 15th 2014.

My Time To Craft 'Farmyard Animals' Challenge

Good morning to you. What happened to our mild Autumn it has suddenly become freezing overnight and I don't like that especially as we are having fireworks and a bbq today for our two grandchildren's birthday which were yesterday and tomorrow. Not that we particularly feel like it as both David and I have been ill all week with man flu/swollen glands and no voice, can you guess who has what lol. I am still also struggling with the fallout from my methadone being stopped and the morphine being started.

Anyhow I am here today with my post for this weeks challenge at My Time To Craft which is 'Farmyard Animals' not an easy one and I confess I struggled as I didn't have a single image that suited the challenge so I had to put my Silhouette Cameo to work. I found this little lamb while searching the store and thought it was quite cute with it's sentiment so here it is. 

I have had these embossed cards in my stash forever and rarely get to use them but decided this little ewe looked better as a clean and simple card rather than layers. I gave her a little edging with some Old Paper Distress Ink just to make her stand out from the white background. I was trying to work out how best I could bring the embossing out without making my lamb fade into the background. I added a little Mod Podge to the hearts just because I had it out but they actually look quite nice.
