Elisabeth Bell World Challenge

Finally back to crafting and creating again.  Oh how good it feels to be coloring again and playing. I've so missed my fun time and all of you even though I have tried to somewhat keep up.  I love these new Fairy images at Bells'n Whistles and finally getting some colored up.  Here us a close up of the colored image.


I've been working on this for awhile and last night brought all my Copics and tools upstairs to get it finished.  It was almost 6 before I got to bed this morning but I'm through dealing with the drama and getting back to doing what I love to do.  For sure the world isn't going to end if I don't deal with an issue immediately.  Nothing has been resolved with the house and electrical system yet, the estimates and insurance have been done for the Mercedes and it goes in the shop July 17th.  They are suppose to start on the front of our house next week and I've done all I can do so someone else can fret for awhile..............lol

I'm submitting this card for the following challenges:

Hi Carol,

Such a sweet image and so beautifly coloured.

Patti P. said...

Carol, you know how I love unusual folds and this one I adore...will need the details! The sparkle on her wings is just perfect. All of the punching and special details in this creation make is just stunning. Lots of work, but so worth it. Just stunning, saw a freebie image at TLC the other day and you and I both need it...it says LETITGO! Sounds like you have, will still be praying for you!

OMGoodness Carol, this is amazingly beautiful. Your late night of crafting has certainly paid off (though I don't know how you managed to stay awake until 6am)!! I love the design of the card and your colouring is superb.

Hope the work on the house, and the insurance, will soon be sorted out. Have a relaxing weekend my friend - hugs, Sylvia xx
